I'm back

I will tell you where I have been in a later post. I will need a lot of time to explain, and I will probably continue to post on the subject even now and then. To let you in on what has been going on the past few weeks though, we are expecting baby #3! This is a picture taken today at 7weeks and 2 days. We are very excited about this journey. I have heard many times that two is the hardest number of children to have, now I have my helper (James), and we are getting more organized I am hoping it will be a little easier when this baby arrives. There will also be a bigger gap between this one and Jewel, a 26 month gap, which is a big difference from the 17 months between James and Jewel.
I am looking forward to sharing this pregnancy on here. It is going to be interesting to see if I have any pre-term labor (in and out of the hospital with James), high blood pressure (close to having preeclampsia with Jewel), and see how I handle my second c-section. I am also excited to see if i actually make it to my scheduled c-section, which will be a week before my due date on November 24. Both James and Jewel came at 38 weeks, so we will see. We heard the heart beat today which is always a beautiful sound, 138 beats per minute. We do have names picked out and they are names from family members like James (first name from my husband's grandfather and his middle from my cousin) and Jewel (first name from my mother and middle from my husband's grandmother). We will share the name when we know the gender of the baby. James has been praying for a boy to play trucks with, I know God hears his prayers, so we will see. I am hoping to update every few days, so I can share our adventure.
