baby #2 aka Peanut!

Well I calculated my due date, Baby #2 aka Peanut, is due to arrive around February 8th, 2010. If history repeats itself i should be induced around 38 weeks which would be the week of January 25th. I scheduled my first appointments, which are next week Wednesday for a meeting with the nurse, bloodwork and pee in a cup and then I meet with the doctor the next morning. Which happens to be the day before my best friend Rachel's weddding, which i'm in! It will be a crazy week but I'm soo looking forward to it!

This pregnancy was a bit of a suprise to us but a very welcome suprise. We hadn't been preventing since about 2 months after Landyn was born, the mini pill wouldn't work very well if i was only taking it every other day! (if that!) We trusted that there is always a plan for everything and God would not give us more than we could handle. In the beginning of May Ryan and I sat down and said we would plan on waiting until the fall or winter to start trying for a second baby, well mid May we concieved this little Peanut! We wouldn't change it for anything and really are looking forward to having two children about 15 months apart!

Ryan has been gone since Thursday night at a Nascar Race with his Dad and some friends and i have figured out one thing this weekend. I would never be able to handle being a single mom! I'm exausted, working on about 15 or 16 hours of sleep total and to top it off morning sickness aka all day sickness has fully set in!

This week I'll post our baby names for all of you to weigh in on! (I just have to wait until Ryan's home to go over them again with me!)


  1. this makes me happy!

    We're not using anything either... I feel like God has perfect timing too! And I totally trust him in that- whenever he decides to bless us with another baby, I'm ready!

    I'm so happy for you, can't wait to hear some name choices!!

  2. know what you mean about being a single mom it would be hard......but Kris and I always sit down and have a plan "if" something were to happen to one of us....the other has a plan. There are times and freak things that happen that we have no control over. If something were to happen to Kris I have 10 years of income to pay every bill, and put myself thru school so that the kids are taken care of. I will not have to start school right away, I can wait til all the kids are in school so that I could go while they are in school. HAVE A PLAN. I just never want to be in that position and then say "now what I do". Have a plan will allow me to focus on my kids.
