I've Got a Secret....



Can you guess what it is???


















Yes, folks...it is true! I am expecting our fifth child...a complete surprise (happy) to us...especially after so many years of trying to get pregnant and having it be so difficult. In November, I began craving General Tsos Chicken and knew I had to test! Yup...needless to say, we were in shock for a couple of weeks.

If you have wondered where I have been lately, this is why I have disappeared off the face of the earth. Sicker than a dog, I have been keeping myself alive with cereal and toast! It seems like this pregnancy has been rough, I think it is my body telling me that it is getting tired! Due to my long history of high risk and miscarriage, we have been keeping this new little one a secret for as long as possible.

My waistline has decided that it is now time to spill the beans! I need some elastic, instead of buttons, so that I can breathe again! I am now 13 weeks, 4 days and the baby looks very healthy...we are crossing our fingers and praying hard that all stays well until the middle of July - when I will have the c-section.

So - now you know! And, as G.I. Joe would say, "Knowing is half the battle!"

HOLY COW!!! I'm so excited for you! I can't believe you were able to keep that from me for so long. *sniff* J/K I totally understand keeping it quiet.

I will definitely keep you in our prayers so this little one will be healthy as will you.
