Introducing our new addition!

And now...finally the post I've been waiting for forever to post! I know many of you already know this news, and we have been so busy and had a hard time getting it around, but we figured now it was time to announce it to the world! We are pregnant again! I am almost 14 weeks, so I am now into my second trimester...sorry, to those of you who are just hearing this, that it has taken so long for us to announce. We just wanted to be sure everything was fine before we did and I couldn't get into my first appointment until I was 11 weeks along. We did an ultrasound and everything and he/she is doing great! All the limbs and everything! It was rolling around in my belly and kicking its legs and stretching its arms. Very cute. :) We are very excited!
However, next time we need to plan a little bit better because the due date is February 14th...not only V-day, but Dave's birthday and three days after Sam's birthday! February will be a busy month...just like how December was always a busy month in my family growing up!
Unfortunately, with this pregnancy I was a lot more sick than I was with Sam, so I'm glad that besides watching Sam (which I feel I have failed at miserably these last 3 months), I have no job. Luckily though, now that I am in the beginning of my second trimester I have started to feel much better! I still have bad days, but they aren't as often! The main bummer for me this time is how fast I have started to show. I started showing at 8 weeks! And now I look like I am already 4 or 5 months along! I have already gained 4 lbs...ugh. My pants are tight too, and I already have to do the whole rubber-band thing with my top button on some of my pants. But aparently, from what I hear, it is somewhat normal to start showing a lot sooner with your second one than with your first. That gives me some comfort, no matter how small. :)
Here is the ultrasound picture of our little one! Unfortunately, we left the pictures in the car and the heat/sun did soemthing to them and the picture dulled and faded a ton so they aren't as clear as they were when we got them. But there he/she is!

Yea! I'm so happy for you. I knew you were trying (from previous post) and Grampa Walt spilled the beans to me last Saturday. Congrats! So what gender are you hoping for?

Thanks! I knew the word would leak out by now... :) Well, Dave wants a boy, and I agree it'd be much easier because we already have everything, but I really want a girl! I will be happy with either!
