Baby #4

We were excited to find out that baby #4 is on the way. My current due date is September 1st, but my doctor usually changes that, so we will see. I have also only made it to 38 weeks and a few days with the other 3, so we fairly certain this baby will make his/her appearance around late August. We have two other birthdays around that time, my step-sister's is on the 18th, and my step-mom's birthday is the 24th. I am guessing the 22nd, but it is still early. I am hoping to give weekly updates, so here we go.

Week 5:

I am so nauseous! I am not usually nauseous until around week 7, but I was actually a little nauseous before my test turned up positive.

I am craving beef, corn, and black beans. Really it love any form of protein which of course will help my nausea. 

I am drinking lemon water, and root beer (not the best, but my nausea is gone with the first sip, and we all like those "miracle cures"). 

A friend of mine recommended the Brewer's Diet, associated with the Bradley method, for me to try, so as soon as I have an appetite I will start that.

My emotions are so high! We are so excited, but I have this constant lump in my throat. My mother-in-law was always excited, and would help with the kids while I got things ready, watching them for appointments, and watching them when the baby was born. We know God has a plan, and we know she is in a much better place, but it is still difficult for those left behind. We will miss her as we celebrate the milestones of this pregnancy. 

Also, here is how we shared the news with Facebook.
