It's hard to keep a secret!

This is how I feel. I'm so sick and tired and sick and tired of saltine crackers! For the past three months I have been nause-exhausted, but the reason has been totally worth it. I figure since the four year-old says, "Mommy, I know why you are sick and tired all the time. It's cause of a baby huh?" it probably isn't much of a secret anymore.
We are having a baby! We are so excited and trying to take it one day at a time. We wanted to wait and tell Isie maybe when I was showing, but she figured it out. And I'm ready to spill the beans. Actually, Anton's already done a lot of bean spilling.
I go to the doc tomorrow and it'll be such a relief to see or hear that little heartbeat again.
Anton and Isie have been so sweet and patient with me. They've been so helpful, which helps me feel a little less guilty about spending so much time on the couch growing my big b.u.t.t. I'm pretty sure that's the only place I'm showing.
Hopefully soon there'll be some balance in the front too!

Yeah for babies!!! I am so excited for you! When are you due?? You'll have to let me know if/when you find out what it is... I am hoping it's a girl. That way, I can shop in the "Baby Girl" section. Plus, you make really cute girls...
Hold on a little longer to feel better... I don't know about you, but 15 weeks is just MAGIC for me.
Congratulations, Nelson's!

How exciting for you guys! Just rest up while you can and spend lots of quality time with Izzy before there are two. Things totally change with more than one, but for the better. Good luck and congrats.
