The Caboose

To negate any speculations from those of you who have seen me recently and think that I am just getting fat, let me assure you there is a good reason for it. Baby #5 is cooking and due to be here around April 14th! So far this pregnancy has been just like all the other ones. Nausea, exhaustion, fatigue, moodiness (I mean SERIOUS moodiness...) but also joy, excitment, and a lot of anticipation. We had an U/S done at seven weeks and everything looked great. It was hard for the tech to get a shot for a print because Peanut is camping out in a very descrete place. But there was a good and strong heart BPM of 136.

I don't want to find out the sex of this final baby. Since it is our tie breaker, it would be fun for everyone to guess! We have everything we could possibly need for a boy or a girl, and the anticipation would make it really exciting. But Cody is insisting that we find out so we probably will. Our big U/S is set for November 17th.

Since this is for sure our last baby, I am trying to savor everything. I signed up for the weekly newsletters about the pregnancy and I get a new one each Wednesday. Right now all of our baby's organs are in place, the tail is gone, fingers and toes are emerging and the eyes are formed behind sealed eye lids. Can't believe that the baby is already the size of a grape. And can't believe that we will have FIVE kids come this spring. I am elated!! We have not told the kids yet and probably won't until week 14. They will be so happy because they have been asking recently when I am going to have another baby in my tummy. I guess they don't like it that Devin is now almost a toddler. The girls especially want a "tiny" baby to cuddle with. Kids, you are getting your wish!

Holy cow! Congratulations!! How exciting. You are a much better woman than me, I only have two and although Mathias will be a toodler soon but I still cannot see myself having another baby for years, hehe! So great that you know its your last and are already enjoying every little milestone. Your kids are so cute so I am sure this boy/girl will be no different :)

I am so excited for you! That is crazy! Your baby is due on Leila's birthday! Let me know if you're feeling like crap and need to send the kids over. Jace and Nixon would love it. Of course, now that I work, it would have to be after 4:30, but you can!

Hey Congratulations! You are such a cute and amazing mama. :) I think you should not find out the sex. It's old fashioned and it will make the actual arrival that much more exciting! It would be a fun story for the kid to hear about too. So don't let Cody talk you into it!
Anyway, that's what I want to do (if and when) we go for #3.
