The big news

So, for those of you who don't know yet, we are expecting child number two sometime in April. We are due date is toward the end of the month, but I think Peanut (Brian's name for the baby while it is in utero) will come toward the beginning of the year. According to my due date I am 16 weeks along or four months. This pregnancy has been worse as far being sick goes. As soon as I got over morning sickness, which I got pretty bad this time, I came down with a really terrible stomach virus. I got another bug the week of Halloween that lead to our holiday festivities Friday night being spent in the ER with an IV. We were blessed to have Brian's parent's come and get Cameron and he got to go home and sleep in bed instead of trying to snuggle up to me on the small hospital bed between various tubes. I was really disappointed that he didn't get to show off his super cute farmer costume at our ward's trunk or treat. Anyway, between my terrible morning sickness and the two stomach bugs, I have ended up five pounds lighter than when I first got pregnant. So, that gives me a free ticket to eat as much as I want right ;)

We are planning another homebirth & I really like our midwife a lot. She has been delivering babies at home for nearly 20 years. We have seen her twice and get two see her again shortly before Thanksgiving. Unlike with Cameron we are not planning on finding out the gender of baby number two, or any of the rest for that matter. I think it makes the whole thing more exciting. I think that I have the beginnings of a bump, but Brian says that I am just sticking my belly out. Here is a picture (please forgive the crazy hair) and you can decide. Brian says the only reason it looks like I have a bump is because of the angle that he took the picture.

Well hi stranger! Now that you aren't in Utah I don't know how you are doing. I stumbled on your blog from the Leonards who I got off of Laura's. I didn't know you were expecting again! Congratulations! We didn't find out what we were having with our last one and it was really fun. We had another boy in September so that brings us up to 5 now. Crazy huh? Love, Kristen Nielsen
