We did it again!  You got it, that’s right, baby number 3 is on the way!  WOOHOO!  We are super excited to share with all of you that we are anxiously awaiting our third child due in October.  Yes, that makes three kids with three birthdays within a month of each other.  We have just come to the realization that we will be on a budget BROKE from September to December every year for the rest.of.our.lives.  The girls are excited with Olivia the most excited.  She is full of questions and I apologize in advance to any of you who may be the recipient of her questioning....yes, it has been a little awkward but mostly cute questioning so far.
So they say every pregnancy is different and I just didn’t believe that until now.  My two girls…those pregnancies were identical really.  I wore sea bands, ate every cracker in sight, slept with an I.V. of Sprite pulsing through me, and was miserable.  I swear that is why it took me two full years to brave having a second child because they say you forget all of those things but they are LYING.  I remembered every second of sickness and delivery with Olivia and well, I was not let down with Addison…except the delivery part.  Much better.  Anyway, I patiently awaited the sickness and it did show its face, but not nearly as bad and it wasn’t 24/7.  It seems to have disappeared for good about a week ago, which led me to sit in front of the nurse practitioner with sweaty palms professing there must be some problem…this was not normal.  She calmly looked at me and asked, “What do you have at home?”  I said, “Two girls.”  She smiles real big and said, “Well perhaps you have a boy on the way.”  Well, only time will tell and for now she has calmed my nerves but not my stomach.  I also have this new passion for food.  Like, I can’t get enough of it.  Like, Nate had to go to Jack-in-the-Box at 11pm to get jalapeño poppers and the list goes on and on.  He now gives me a rundown of the leftover situation every night to assure me there is more food for later on.  He thinks that is cute with his little smirk and laugh….it is a totally out of control feeling…but he is cute when he does it.  Just wait till I have that 3am craving for something across town.  He won’t think it is so cute then.
Well, for now we wait… and grow.  Soon we will know if there is good reason for all of these different symptoms or if my body is just playing tricks on me….

Mama x3

P.S. Nate just thought I should clarify that this was not technically an ooops...he did not fully appreciate my creative writing a la Britney Spears for a moment.  Love ya hon.
