NO, this is not our baby, BUT...
For those of you who haven't heard yet, we're crazy people. On Sunday, August 10, Wendy informed me that she is, in fact, with child. More to the point, she shoved a positive pregnancy test in my face and said "I TOLD YOU!" Point taken. (Seven weeks now, hence the random, Google-pulled pic of a 7-week ultrasound.)
We had blood drawn twice that week -- on Tuesday and again on Friday -- to check her hCG levels to make sure. And what do you know? Her levels had nearly tripled and we were officially, lab-confirmed preggers.
To answer your questions:
1. Yes, we are a little bit crazy.
2. Yes, it was a little bit of a surprise.
3. Mya is six months old.
4. Yes, we ARE excited...thanks for asking.
Initially, we were taken aback but we are an awesome team and are really happy to have been blessed with another pregnancy. Wendy is getting back into pregnancy mode. She's eating better, exercising, and resting. But she's also already enjoying the perks of early pregnancy: fatigue, nausea, sleeplessness, temperature fluctuation and vertigo. Ahh, the joys of motherhood.
So we appreciate everyone's prayers and well-wishes. We plan to keep everyone up to date, as always, right here on the blog. Our first doctor's appointment for this one is September 3 -- stay tuned!
(NOTE: When speaking to Wendy, do not under any circumstances, reference the several instances of twins on her side of the family.)
