Mini-Me Friday #10 - A Biggie!!

So...I expected to get some questions as to why I hadn't been updating my Mini-Me stuff, but I guess you were all just assuming that I'd already fallen off the wagon or something. Naughty people! You're supposed to be holding me accountable over here!! *wink*

Well, I can tell you this. I am going to be changing the focus of Mini-Me Fridays from a weight loss journey to a weight gain journey. You see, sometime near the end of July, there will literally BE a Mini-Me. Or a Mini-Chris.

Look what I found last Monday:

Yep! Baby Number 3!!

Yep! Total surprise!! (Yes, we know how it happens, by the way.)

Yep! We're excited!!

Nope! Don't have a preference for what we're having!!

Yep! Feeling pretty good -- nausea off and on, but otherwise just fine.

So, there ya go. The biggest Mini-Me update yet. Oh, but in case you're wondering -- I still plan to exercise throughout this pregnancy. I think it's funny that *I* of all people am actually excited to get the 3 new pregnancy dvd's that I just ordered this week. I am sure that I have already gained back all 8 of the pounds that I lost...I have been an eating MACHINE this week. I think that the brakes have been applied though -- last night was my first big food aversion and it was a biggie. I'm feeling more queasy today than I have pretty much all week, so I'm guessing that I'm entering "that phase".

Well, anyway -- there's the big news! *big, deep breath* We are looking forward to seeing all that God has in store for us with this newest little blessing.

WOW! That is so exciting. Our third child was also a surprise. We wanted 3, but weren't "trying" yet. We too were happy about it right from the start. He has been one of my best surprises ever! I'm so happy for you and look forward to following your pregnancy and the birth of #3! Congratulations!

Kristen said...

CONGRATS again! I was wondering when you were going to post this! I just knew you weren't done. Something told me you weren't!

Alana said...

That is WONDERFUL news! I am so happy for you!!! I don't know why, but I had a sneaking suspicion about this with you. Isn't that weird and I don't even really "know" you! Congratulations!

Teresa said...

You already know that I am super duper excited for you! I fixed my blog, so see if you can leave a comment now! Thanks for letting me know. MMMMMMUUUAHHH!

Terri said...

Congratulations!! Our third was kind of a surprise because she was 10 years later than the 2nd but we did make the plan to go to China to get her. What a joy this new one will bring to your family! Can't wait to go on this journey with you!

Congratulations!! I am very excited for you and your family!!! Sorry I have not been by to visit---I was suffering some bad headaches. I think I had a headcold---went through the kleenex like crazy.
It'll be fun to watch you progress in your pregnancy. Loved the post! Be sure to get that baby ticker on your site. :)
Congratulations again. :) Happy, happy, joy, joy.

Denise said...

Congratulations! Baby #3.
it's true, i had it down and was the perfect mother with 2. When i had 3 i gained something i didn't know i needed, humility and grace. Praise God!
My 3rd has added so much JOY!

Enjoy every minuet!
Btw- i think it is funny that you posted under preggo. when we were expecting our 3rd we handed out Prego sauce to let close friends know we were expecting.

Congratulations! That is wonderful news, and a very good reason to gain back those 8lbs. Hope you feel good through this first trimester.

Janelle said...

Congratulations! I am about a month ahead of you. I hope the sickness passes you by. It can be so hard.

Blessings this Christmas season!!

I saw your name ideas on Alana's blog aka uh-lay-nuh. :)

My parents were going to name me Earen Elizabeth. just thought I would throw that at ya since you had the 2 separate.

So glad they did not name me that or I probably would not have married my husband...Aaron.
