I'm Pregnant!

I was keeping this quiet and only telling a few family and friends but my mom made a good point today - why keep it secret when you could tell people and have them all praying for you and the baby?  Mom is right, why keep things secret and worry over miscarriage, when I can just have my friends and family praying for me that I won't miscarry?  So........I'm pregnant and please pray for me and the baby (or babies).

I may actually be almost 9 weeks already or carrying multiples, but I won't know for sure till I have an ultrasound.  So for now, we are going by me being in my 5th week.  I'm already showing and even my friends noticed my belly - it popped this past week and I didn't have this happen with my first child, so this is new to me.  I've also been growing in other places and it is all so fast.  Though I've not gained any weight and don't have much of an appetite.  I'm extremely fatigued and my house is a MESS - no is proof:

You all may remember this was my freezer cooking week, Tuesday midday - I was so fatigued I couldn't finish and since then I've been laying down dead-dog tired and the dishes have sat there waiting for a washer to come along lol!  I drank a chai tea today to give me energy to get the house back in order, but it is high time I teach my daughter to do some dishes!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I am SO excited for you and your family!!! I will pray for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby or babies for you! It is so important to rest when you need to-the house can wait. It may not be up to your standards, but it really doesn't look too bad. It's a great idea to teach your little girl how to help more! My little girl will be six next week and I am trying so hard to have more patience with letting her help with my chores and making them "our" chores. Sometimes it is just easier to do them myself.

Congratulations!!! Will be praying for you, Sis :) I am sure Katie will be more than willing to help you out. I would love to help... your meals all sound very yummy.

I need to start implementing more time saving and frugal ideas. Yeah, I am actually inspired to cook us up some freezer meals this month!

God Bless,

Thank you ALL so much for the prayers!! I've been so moody lately that I don't want to be around myself LOL!!!! =0 My daughter grabbed me the other day and prayed that God would let her old mommy come back LOL. It was hilarious but wow, talk about crazy hormones and mood swings, I don't remember this when I was pregnant with Katie but then again it was just me and Nate - I didn't have responsibility of another child. This is proving quite the challenge and one I'm learning and growing with already! God is working out some things in me already and I'm barely just started whew!

Thank you so much Megan and Jackie! :)

Megan - I finally got some energy back this week and was able to do light cleaning yesterday. Last week was the hardest as I pretty much was laying down for 3 days. Hubby ended up cleaning on Saturday to help me out, he is a great man!! Katie also pitched in, so it helped to know they will be my help!
