Baby #3!!!

We are excited to share we are pregnant with our 3rd baby!!! We found out recently that it is a girl!!

I found out a couple weeks before christmas that we were expecting. I wasn't feeling well and went to the Dr with suspected Strep. I waited for the strep test results- the dr came in and said, "Sorry to say you have strep, but excitingly you are also pregnant!'' It was a fun surprise to have!

We've slowly shared the news with family and then our boys after the first Dr Appointment.  Very fun to have the boys so excited

Tyler and I found out that the baby was a girl and did a little fun surprise to show the boys.

We took the boys with us to the latest ultrasound. It was fun to have them a part of it.

Needless to say we are very excited! Both boys are happy to be big brothers- Gray said "I will be the best big brother to this sister. Very sweet to have him and his joy!

Isn't that a neat shot? its the placenta in the background. God is so amazing how he made the wonder of pregnancy!

This pregnancy has been very different. I've had rashes and acne- two things i've never really dealt with before. I felt terribly nauseous for the first 14 weeks.  I've been able to continue with a bootcamp exercise class i've been taking. I'm starting to slow up now :) My struggle has always been with the hard part of a changing and growing body. My challenge is to find healing from eating disorder mentality on a whole new level this pregnancy. I want to keep the joy that Satan is quick try and steal from me. Especially in these fast moments- like pregnancy. I will not be able to be pregnant with this girl ever again. It's not worth the stress.  Jesus is meeting me in my weakness and making me stronger.

At State Wrestling little thing is showing! I was about 13 weeks.

I need to take another pic! i'm 17 weeks today!
