I am so sorry for the lack of posting lately. After vacation we have just been hit so hard with sickness, dr visits, and just feeling plain yucky, that I have completely been putting the blog (and the state of my house) on the back burner. But I am pleased to say that Ava and I have pulled through our colds and yuckies, and Bradley is finally making his way out of his. But I have just been too tired at night and just still not feeling 100%. So now I will tell you why. We found out while on the trip that we are having another baby! After the last pregnancy I just wasn't ready to share this one with everybody until we were further along and things were progressing. But since the last pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, my doctor wanted me to have an early ultrasound to confirm dates and put my mind at ease. So on Thursday Bradley and I went in for an ultrasound and sure enough, there was our little jelly bean's heartbeat! The dates were a little off than what we had figured, and we are due on November 28, 2009. Seeing the heartbeat is such a good sign at this point and since morning sickness has been kicking my butt this time, my doctor feels very confident that things will go fine for this pregnancy. I am nauseated pretty much all the time and have a prescription for that. With Ava I felt a little sick in the evenings, and with the miscarriage I had no pregnancy symptoms except for tiredness, so while I hate the sick feeling, I know it is a good sign. So just continue to remember us in your prayers and pray for this little one and me that the pregnancy continues to thrive and in the fall we have an addition to our family!
