So, by now everyone probably knows I am pregnant.  :)  We are super excited to be welcoming a baby boy to our family in the end of September, but I would be lying if I didn't say I am TERRIFIED.  Terrified of having a boy, terrified of having four kiddos...terrified.  :)  Sometimes the only thing that gets me through is knowing without a doubt that this little guy was supposed to be here, now. 

This pregnancy has been awesome, well awesomely awful.  BLAH.  With the girls I would puke and go back to work and be just fine (well, ok).  With this one, not so much.  I would puke and I would be out of commission the rest of the day.  I think my record for throwing up was seven times, after that I knew I had to do something.  Thank goodness for Zofran!  That stuff is a miracle drug.  I was finally able to stop taking it a few weeks ago (I am 24 weeks tomorrow).  So I am finally feeling better, there are still some rough days but MUCH better. 

Jeff has been a peach about the whole nasty house, no dinner, crazy children thing.  He took good care of us when he was home from work.  I think he is glad I am feeling better though.  He is INCREDIBLY excited about a boy.  At this point I think he has bought more stuff for this little guy than I have. 

I was pretty convinced that this little bean was a girl.  So when the day came for our ultrasound I was really nervous that it would be another girl (not that we don't LOVE our girls) but if this is the last kid I wanted to know what it was like to raise a boy too.  ANYWAY, so Jeff and I waited and waited and my bladder was about to burst and they finally called us in.  We went in a little anxious and she checked out to make sure everything was ok and right after that she scanned to see what we were having and she said it was a boy!  Jeff and I just looked at each other and cherred for joy and shed a few tears.  :)  I made her check...and recheck....and recheck that it was a boy. 

After all is said and done, even with all the nasty that comes with being pregnant I just can't believe how blessed we are.  When we were trying to get pregnant with Morgan it just wasn't happening and I was starting to wonder if it ever would happen until I had a great doctor that put us on Clomid, and that is all it took.  And here we are popping number four out in a six year span.  I feel so blessed that we get to bring these little spirits into our home.  Most days I can't believe Heavenly Father would trust us to do this important job but I am so grateful. 

So here we go, bring on monster trucks, baseballs, legos, blue and whatever else boys like!

I felt the same way after our 3 little girls, but I absolutely adore our little boy, and so do the girls. And it is so cute how he and daddy just worship each other.
I'm excited for you!

Yippee! Congrats on having a boy! Sorry you were so sick. I can totally sympathize with you. I was puking round the clock (literally) with all of my kids. Sometimes it was even on a half hour schedule. No fun at all! Maybe we will follow you and when we have #4 it will be a boy! ;)

I. am. so . happy for you!! You are such an incredible person, it doesn't surprise me one bit that Heavenly Father would trust you to raise those sweet children in a 6 year span :) And i've told you before but i'll tell you again, they are SO lucky to have you as their mom! I'm so excited about you having a son! How fun!! I miss your face! (and we are exactly 7 weeks apart in our pregnancies! how cool is that?) I love you!!
