Hello, September - and Baby!
Hello, September! Ahhh, I feel like I've finally reached a point where I can breathe better, think better, feel better. If we aren't Facebook or instagram friends, I have some news for you. I'm expecting! And you see, the summer months ended up being a complete blur of morning-turned-all-day-sickness, spirit-crushing-headaches, and creativity-destroying-fatigue. I am absolutely thrilled to be pregnant, especially after our loss earlier this year - don't get me wrong. It's just that this time around has been the hardest. I suspect that being pregnant for the fifth time might have something to do with it. Plus, there's the fact that it's harder to have babies at 32 than 21. However, I think the real kicker was summer. I've never been pregnant over a summer, and the heat really took it out of me. To the point where medications were involved. But, it's just about fall now, and after the gloriously rainy Labor Day we just had, I calling it safe to say that summer is basically over. Whatever the season, I'm starting to feel more functional, and that makes me very happy.
Today, we find out the sex of the baby! So what do you think? We have three boys. Will we get a girl? When I was pregnant with my first son, I did the pin on the end of a string thing and that said I would have four kids - three boys followed by a girl. Right so far! I don't know, though. I think it's a boy. My hubby is leaning toward a boy. My doctor thinks it's a boy. Everyone else is hoping for a girl, especially Jaxon, our youngest. He said that if it's not a girl, he's calling Jesus to rectify the situation. :)
Just for fun, let's take a vote. Leave a comment here about what you think - boy or girl. I'll randomly select an answer, wrong or right, to win some goodies from my shop. We are revealing the gender on Sunday to our boys and close family, so I'll let you know (the sex and winner) on Monday.
And speaking of my shop, to make room for fall and winter things, I have all of my Samplers, as well as some Sweet Spots, on sale at a great discount! Shop here.
Thanks for stopping by and not giving up on this little blog after a 3-month long hiatus ;). Have a great day! Tessa
