Do you know what that is???
It´s a baby...inside of ME!!! I can´t keep it a secret any longer...I am 9 weeks pregnant and we are very excited. I know that many of you wouldn´t tell so early on but we´ve already told Bella and 4 year olds don´t keep secrets very well. I know the first Sunday back at church she is going to tell everyone that her mom has a baby in her tummy so what the heck, I guess I´ll just tell you first!
We found out on December 22. To say that we were shocked is an understatement! I had to take 2 home tests, the second one with words, not lines, before I would actually believe it. I couldn´t get a doctor´s appt. between finding out, Christmas, and leaving for Chile on January 1st so last week, Blaine and I went to a doctor´s office out here to have an ultrasound. It was amazing. We saw and heard the heartbeat and I was just in awe that the little peanut is actually inside of me. We told Bella that night and she has been so excited. She keeps saying, ¨That´s cool that you have a baby inside of you.¨ She also has good questions like, ¨How is the baby going to get out of your tummy?¨ She laughed at my explanation. She of course hopes it is a girl.
I have been sick on this trip and I am worried about a long flight home by myself with two kiddos in tow and one causing a real ruckus inside of me. But, I am counting my blessings and so grateful that Baby Allen number 3 is on the way. I am due August 22.
Using Chilean equipment has been a real challenge and I apologize for the small scan of the ultrasound. When I get home to my Mac, I´ll be cleaning up posts and doing lots of posts to catch up.
Anyway, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???
