That’s right!! We are expecting #4 and we are sooo excited.
It is so hard to keep pregnancy a secret! I have been dying to tell you! I thought I would answer a few questions you might have as I have been asked these questions already…
How far along are you?
I am 12.5 weeks! You gotta count those 1/2 weeks right?
Have you been sick?
Yes. Not as throw up sick as I was with my first two mostly just nauseous and extremely tiiired. The trickiest thing about this pregnancy so far has been dealing with other sicknesses on top of being pregnant sick like a sinus infection, yeast infection, and incessant cough. I am just now starting to feel somewhat normal and that is so encouraging.
When are you due?
My due date is 6/5/16 which I am telling the kids I am due when the school bell rings for Summer. We are cutting it mighty close! Two of my babies have come early so I wouldn’t be surprised if this little bean comes at the end of May. If I could pick a birthday though I would choose 6/1/16 because I am a nerd about numbers.
Are you planning to deliver naturally again?
Yes! I had such a wonderful experience with it last time that I feel like I cannot ignore what a blessing that experience was for me AND Paul. It really has been one of the highlights of our marriage thus far. I am a little overwhelmed at the idea of the prep for it again because it is rather consuming. You really have to focus on it and prep for it as you would a big exam. Yes, I have done it before so I don’t think it will be as intense but I don’t want to take my prep for granted and not do my due diligence you know?
Will you be sharing your prep with us?
Yes! One goal I have this go around is to make YOU a part of my prep. I want to share each stage of preparing using hypnobabies and I will be sharing these videos on periscope (@mymommystyle) and saving them for our YouTube channel so you can catch it later if you miss it. If you have any questions or anything you want me to cover please email me so I know or message me on instagram.

Did you plan this?
Yes! We have always wanted to have four children! (People have already asked me this a number of times!)
Is this your last one?
We think so. I am never going to say never…but we really feel like this is our last. I am just hoping I have a calm reassurance that this is the case when the babe is born!
Are you finding out if it is a boy or a girl?
We are not! Shocker!! No really, I am shocked. I am such a planner and this goes against my nature but my husband has always wanted to have a surprise at least once. Please give me encouragement to stay strong because nesting instincts are real people and I will want to start prepping everything! One thing I am planning to do is prep a gender neutral nursery and share that along the way.
What cravings have you had?
A double double cheeseburger from In-n-Out animal style. This craving is real people! I am planning to take a picture of myself with one and plug it in here at some point. I don’t hate burgers but I never crave them! What the heck!? I don’t like their fries in case you are wondering.
Another strange thing is that I have not been into sweets. Chocolate just isn’t doing it for me. I can’t say I haven’t had any I am just not jonesin’ for it like I normally am. These cravings don’t point me one way or the other with gender because I can’t remember ever feeling like this when I was pregnant with a boy or a girl.
Have you been working out?
Guys. This has been a struggle. When I was pregnant with Jett I was in the best shape EVER and working out regularly, at 10 weeks I almost lost him due to a placental tear. They sent me home with a “there is nothing we can do and prepare to lose the baby” sentiment. Through a miracle and several weeks of bleeding he made it. They told me it was nothing that I had done but the correlation of when it happened just seems too coincidental. Because I have also experienced a few miscarriages I have been completely gun shy when it comes to working out during this first trimester.
But….I have been walking and my goal is 10,000 steps a day. I haven’t always gotten there especially since I have been so sick, but I am planning to start Beach Body’s pregnancy workout program and “get back on the wagon” so to speak. I hope to share this progress with you as motivation to stay accountable. Want in? Just let me know!
How far apart are your children?
This baby will be my closest in age at 2.5 years, the others are 2 years 8 months and 2 years 10 months.
We made this announcement video for Paul’s family because they are spread out across the country and decided to share it on facebook and here as well. Yes, I had a complete fruit fly epidemic happening at my house. I usually clean up my house at night and with how sick I’ve been at night a lot of things have been getting done. This lead to a massive swarm over apple cores that existed in my daughter’s room. You’ll understand what I mean when you watch the video!
