yes… you read that correctly!!! I’m 9 weeks today. Here’s the scoop…
I found out at the beginning of December that I was pregnant. It was a surprise. I mean, a surprise to a girl who never thought she would have children. A surprise to a girl who has an 11 month old. A surprise to a girl who thought her and hubby wouldn’t get pregnant if they were just “careful.” uhhh… oops!
Anyway, we were thrilled, delighted, overwhelmed, and a little scared. I mean, who has kids this close? What will we do? What will others say? How will I manage?
Then Christmas came and we got to surprise our families with the news that Blanton Baby #2 would make his/her appearance on August 20, 2009! There were tears and squeals. The best Christmas surprise!!
We told a few close friends, but were waiting to go to the doctor today before we spilled the beans to everyone.
So, this morning we went to the doctor. We were running around like crazy people, and surprisingly were only 5 minutes late! I met my new doctor, who I immediately fell in love with! She was so warm and friendly, AND she offered me an ultrasound!!! I didn’t think I was going to get one today, so I was a little un-prepared.
Once she started the exam, here is how our conversation went…
Me: Is that two??!?!
Dr.: Well, it’s your lucky day! I see three!!!
Me: WHAT?!?!?! WHAT?!??! (laughing hysterically!!!)
Dr: Yep. There’s three. Now, please stop laughing so I can take a picture.
Chris: I TOLD YOU SO! (Last night Chris *jokingly* said ‘what if there are three in your belly?’ I told him only people with fertility medicine get 3. I was wrong.)
Chris: Um. I guess we are going to have to think of more names.
So, that is how we found out we are growing from a family of 3 to a family of 6.
Please keep these three little babies in your prayers. Pray for their health. Pray for my health. I go to my “new” doctors on Tuesday. The are high risk OB’s. I am definitely High Risk now.. and I don’t even know what all that means, but I will soon find out.
This is definitely God’s handi-work and humor coming through. I mean, I would have never thought in a million years….
