Some have asked and others have silently wondered about how baby 3 can be announced and born within two months. I've also wanted to share that I wasn't totally lying during our summer trip when we saw so many friends and family, but denied all such ideas.
Our family was interested in having more children in the home, with a possibility of early to mid-2017 as the arrival. You may or may not know that post-baby hormones and nursing throw regular signs of womanhood into irregularity for a while. Without going into uncomfortable detail, it was decided that I should take a pregnancy test in the Spring when irregularity stopped. The test failed. The plan was to buy another test, but that didn't happen very quickly. I felt a ill around the same time everyone here got a stomach bug, only mine lasted two weeks longer than everyone else. Beyond that stint of illness, I felt nothing out of the ordinary.
That ordinary continued until right after our reunion weeks in July, where many noticed my increased pudgy that I attributed to the end of nursing, we stayed in a hotel to break up the drive home. We had just crawled into bed when the baby moved. "Ummm, husband? Something just moved. It wasn't me." A test then confirmed that we were on the way to another child, with the possibility of already being 17 weeks along. Now we are looking forward to our little Christmas present.
And now you know the rest of the story.
