I am currently in my ninth week of pregnancy. This was planned and expected. We wanted to wait until Lyssa had her 2nd birthday, which was in Sept. and the test came back positive the following Monday. Very excited about a new addition, pretty sure it will be a girl. The same symptoms with Lyssa's pregnancy are happening with this one. Sensitivities to dairy products, but overall very little issues in the way of morning sickness. Some nausea, but I have yet to have to puke. Anyone that knows me, is well aware that puking is something I avoid like the plague. The only thing that ever succeeds is the flu.

According to the internet, I am due May 19th. Anyone reading this and who writes to Alan, please do not inform him. It would be a nice welcome home surprise.

Since Mark, I have been able to figure out that I was pregnant pretty much the second a person can. Because of that, I found out while I was only 4 weeks along, and that is just way too to be announcing to anyone really besides Ethan. Over the next 5 weeks, we told a few family members, but had every intention of keeping quiet until about 12 weeks.

Then came Ethan's cousin's wedding. After going through with Amber's Endowment we were waiting in the hall for everyone else and Ethan was talking to Grandma and a bunch of others family members, about some cousin that was finally able to get pregnant after 13 years of marriage and pregnancy issues. Ethan, not thinking, blurts out," We just celebrated our 5th year last week and have 2 and a 3rd on the way." Grandma was surprise says,"Oh, you haven't announce that yet.", to which I said," You're right, I hadn't." With a glare to him, that everyone else just laughed at. At that point, it was just to complicated thinking about who knew, who didn't. We are excited, and I can't wait to have a spring baby.
