Pregnant Again

We are happy to announce that we are expecting another baby! I'm due Thanksgiving day (Nov. 26).

I'm sick as a dog like last time, but am happy to be in the United States this time for the first trimester. I don't really feel less sick than I did when I was pregnant with Jonah in Jordan, but at least I have more access to foods that are a bit more appealing, and less exposure to smells and experiences that made me feel worse last time.

I thought that I was only about 8 weeks, but when we went to the doctor on Tuesday and had an ultrasound we found out that we're actually 12! I was so excited, that means a whole month less of throwing up. It also means that the baby won't be born 3 days before Christmas, like we thought, which will be a very good thing.

Congratulations! I'm glad you will be feeling better soon. Are you going to find out if it's a boy or a girl?

Yes, I am going to find out if it's a boy or a girl. I have boxes and boxes of boy clothes so if it turns out to be a girl, I'd really love to know so I can prepare. Plus our extra bedroom is painted girly, so if it turns out to be a boy, I've got painting to do.

If your baby is a boy Joey will probably start another campaign to have baby named after him :) Congratulations!!!!

COngratulations!!! That is so exciting! I am so happy that you aren't in JOrdan too, those were sad days watching you lie on the floor in the royal living room and making Jerry pick up any american food around. Wish we could see you guys before we take off for Dubai- maybe you'll have to come visit us!

Hey that's great! Do you find out? We don't much to my disappointment this time around. Well, I wish you luck with the sickness. It should be over soon.
