Baby # 3

Holy cow, I can't believe I'm even saying this, but Baby #3 will be here early October!

It started in January. For a week straight Hadley would pray for her baby sister. I joked with Brandon saying that one of us would sleep on the couch for the next 6 months if she kept up with those prayers!

In February Grayson got the stomach bug and wasn't feeling good and then I got it. He got better, I did not. After a week I thought maybe I'd go buy a test just to get a piece of mind so I could feel better. Right when I took it, it was positive like right away. I started shaking and yelled for Brandon. I started bawling but not because I was angry, I was just overwhelmed. This doesn't happen to us!

Usually it takes time, tests, tears, lots of dr. apps, different medicines and more time for us to even get pregnant. So we were completely shocked but immediately felt so blessed. I kept feeling like Heavenly Father was up there laughing at us, reminding us he sees the bigger picture and he has a plan for all of us and this baby needs to come.

I also feel like Ross on Friends, when Rachel tells him she's pregnant. And he's yelling about condoms not being 100% effective and he yells "they should put that on the box!"

I think I'm over the worst with the sickness, I'm 12 weeks now!! I'm finally feeling human again, I don't know what I'd do without Brandon. He is so dang patient, and sweet and the best MR. Mom when I couldn't be. Oh, I love him. I'm so grateful for friends who helped with my kids, brought us dinner and things to help us survive. And for my parents help. I'm one lucky girl.
