its a baby!

In case you haven't heard, our family is growing! Alldred baby numero tres is on the way May 10, 2010!

We are super excited (and a little nervous to be outnumbered!) Bugman is predicting a baby sister. Mommy predicts a third boy, and I think Daddy is hoping for another boy.

My original due date was April 15th, but after talking to my doctor at my first appointment, we both agreed that we needed an ultrasound to confirm a due date. We were right, my dates were about 3 1/2 weeks off.

Here's our newest blob (as of 9/22/09) ( the day I went from 10wks 5 days preggo to 7 weeks 1day!)

The second blob you see was never a baby (no twins for this girl!) It was actually my, umm, well, yolk sak (ewww!)

So far everything is going well. I had my second appointment Friday and baby had a heart rate of 160 beats/min. Here's the convo I have with the nurse practitioner:

Her: We have a heart rate of 160!

Me: OOOhhh, that's pretty high, it must be a girl, right?!?!

Her: (rolling eyes) Umm, it means its a baby.

I've been battling the worst cold of my life, and of course the approved medication list I have has "none of the good stuff on it." So I'm hanging in, but sleeping is rough (and first trimester is tiring enough on its own!) I'm also having some morning & evening sickness, but I know its a good sign that we have a healthy baby!

I realize how much I miss going back through the blog to look at all of the changes happening with the Bugs. Soooo, I'm really going to make an effort to get back to blogging at least once a week! Wish me luck!


  1. I like the new due date better! That is Miss Anna's birthday and mine is the 9th!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Awesome news! I hope you get a little girl this time just so you can experience the COMPLETELY different world of girls... but (most importantly) hope s/he is happy and healthy like the bugs. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. I am so happy for you!!!! Congrats!!!
