8 weeks

Weight: +4 lbs

Still feeling sick on and off throughout the days, but I think it's been a little less. I'm super tired and my nose is VERY sensitive. IF I crave food its usually mexican or italian something with tomato sauce. But mostly nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas etc. Oh and eggs every sometimes too. I'm really hungry all the time, which is sooner than what I noted on Naomi's blog- but I'm at about the same weight gain, though I did start this pregnancy about 5 lbs lighter than I started Naomi's (hooray!).

I meet with the Midwives at Better Birth on Thursday. I hope it goes well!

7 Weeks pregnant

Hello my little one! We are so excited for you. Once your dad and I decided we wanted to add baby number four to our family we just couldn't wait. You've been planned and anticipated. I have to admit that I'm a little nervous for your first year. The first 3-4 four months with a newborn are always an adjustment, but with three older ones, needing to be run to school, preschool, extracurricular activities, a toddler in diapers and life in general, I have a feeling it will be pretty busy. Yet, I can hardly wait! Josh and Dekker are VERY excited as well- Naomi doesn't understand of course yet. Your dad and Josh are VERY much hoping for a girl, Dekker and I are following suit. Of course our greatest prayer though is that you are healthy- and we have an awesome boy name picked out for you too- just in case.

So though we were trying, I wasn't sure I was pregnant. With Naomi I began feeling sick before I even took the test. I took the test one day early (again, we're just so excited) and was so elated to see that indeed I was/am pregnant. I noticed an increase in appetite within the next day or two- and slight nausea 3-4 days after. The nausea and nose sensitivity has increased since- though still not as extreme as with Naomi- though more so than Dekker. (Josh I never felt sick with). At 5 weeks I'd gained maybe a pound. 6 weeks a solid two and now I'm at 3-4. And this last week I also noticed a thickening of my waistline for sure- though I'm sure no one else would notice, well Jake yes.

We all pray for you and love you. Welcome, welcome to the family!
