You Have Baby?

If I were wearing this lovely cartoon woman's dress it would say, I'm due on the 18th of June, It's a BOY, and No you can't touch my belly! :-)

That's right folks, we are expecting Baby Boy Beardsley #2!!

I'm sure most of my/our readers already know, we certainly haven't been keeping it a secret. Over Christmas there were still friends and family that we were tellng and then once we got back I was going to post, but then there were just a few weeks until we found out what we were having and then we did, and life was crazy busy for a few weeks and then I got the big FLU....blech, so now is the time to come clean!!

We found out a little over 2 weeks ago that we were expanding our brood with yet another little boy!! I actually found out a day before our ultrasound while I was at the grocery store where I had a conversation with nice older woman that went like this:
Woman: "You have baby?"
Me: surprised look. (I am coming from the gym and wearing a sweatshirt.) "well, yes!"
Woman: "It Boy."
Me: slight cough, "oh really!? You think? Well I find out tomorrow so I can come back and let you know!"
Woman: shakes head (as in, that's not necessary.) "It Boy."

Well strange woman at the grocery were right! It Boy! Again!!

We are so thrilled to have another little man running around the house, although I know he won't be running for a while. These two will be about 21 months apart. I'm excited, and pretty tired. I was a little tired during the first trimester and had pretty much gotten over that, but with the flu it has been tough! The times of high high fever I couldn't feel him moving (I've been feeling him for a few weeks, even Matt has felt him), so the decreased movement was pretty scary, but now that the fever is all but gone (only a low grade one some evenings, and none at all during the day), he seems to be getting more active again, which is a huge relief!!! I had an appointment today with a midwife and was able to hear the heartbeat (first time since the BIG sonogram) which she said was not too high (something that happens with a high fever). She told me about some cough medicine that I could take (which is great, because the cough is really lingering and very wracking and exhausting on the body!).

So here's a little photo for your viewing pleasure. This is from a little over 10 weeks and I am 22 weeks along now. We have much better pictures, but none in the computer right now, so this will have to do!

I can't believe at this point I am just a few weeks from the 3rd trimester!! I'm so glad because I already feel stretched to the limit! Well we'll try to get some belly pictures taken sometime and more current ultrasound pictures posted too, but for now that's the exciting news....

Congratulations! I had no idea. I'm sorry that you were so sick during what was supposed to be the best trimester.

Daniel and Kimberly Jordan said...

Congratulations!! What great news!! I'm sorry too that you were so sick with the flu and were preggo at the same time ... that's what I dreaded so much this time around when my guys came down with sicknesses. Will be praying for you to be completely better soon!
