Some say three’s a crowd...

But, we couldn't be happier!! This is my big announcement and why I had fallen off of the blogging train for a little while – We are expecting baby #3!


Let’s get these bump dates started!  I didn't do these with Hadleigh or Hayden, but I loved the idea too much not to do it.  Although, I have to admit, I do feel a little guilty already that I’m doing something “different” that I didn't do for the other 2. As if they are going to call me out on it in 10 years – which they probably will.

How Far Along: 14 weeks
Due Date: 6.3.14 {I’ve had 4 ultrasounds and baby is measuring consistently with a due date of 5.29.14, but they won’t change it}
Gender: ????
Movement: Not yet! I’m feeling a little left out though – this is my third, shouldn't I be feeling some movement?!
Weight Gain: 3 lbs. since last time I weighed at doctor on 11.12.13; I’m certain this has risen.
Symptoms: I had horrible nausea from 5 weeks – 12 weeks.  To the point I actually had to take Zofran, which then the Zofran would give me headaches.  It has subsided to where I’m not taking Zofran, but I still feel queasy in the morning and at night.  I was also exhausted during those same 7 weeks.  I still can go to bed pretty early, but some of my energy seems to have come back.
Cravings:  Nothing in particular – no sweets. I have a hard time pin-pointed what it is I want to eat.  I did crave a burger a few weeks ago.  I actually think I’ve wanted more salads than anything.
Sleep:  I’m sleeping decent. I get up to go pee at least once and Hayden has been waking a few times at night recently.  I’m hit or miss whether or not I use my pregnancy pillow or not.  I find myself asleep on my back or my left side, so I freak a little and get back to laying on my right side ;)
Stretch Marks: ha! Yes, but from Hadleigh & Hayden. Plllleeeeaaasseee let my skin be stretched enough not to gain any more of them! 
Maternity Clothes: In them, but can still wear some of my normal clothes as well.  As far as pants go, if I'm wearing any normal pants - they aren't buttoned, so my Bella Band comes in handy.
Names:  We've had a boy name since a few years before we even got engaged.  Holden will be the name if it’s a little boy.  Not sure of the middle name. Our girl name will start with an “H” as well, but we have NO clue! I have started a list, but nothing jumps out at us.
Hadleigh is: Indecisive on whether she wants a sister, a brother, or both! I’m setting the record straight to say there is only ONE in my tummy.
Hayden is: oblivious to me having a baby.  Maybe once my belly gets bigger she will want to kiss is like Hadleigh did at her age, but she won’t probably get it fully until the baby is here.

Can't wait to share this journey again!!

  3. CONGRATS!!! So so so excited for you and your family!!! May I just ask why you are going with all H names?! I'm just curious! I know both your daughters have H names, but did you and your hubbs have this planned from the beginning or did it just work out that way? I babysat for a little boy named Holden for many years!

    1. Thank you! So, we have always had "Holden" for a boy - and then we just happened to fall in love with "Hadleigh". When we found out we were having a second girl, we actually thought about going away from the "H", but found ourselves loving "Hayden" (and what if we had a boy afterwards - we couldn't have one of our kids not be an "H") ha - crazy I know!
