This picture has nothing to do with the blog, but look at those eye lashes. 

Well it looks my pregnancy symptoms are kicking in and the first one to rear its ugly head is Miss Moody (or Mrs. Moody). Urgh, my mouth filter is slowly disappearing and which leads me to not be a very nice person to be around. Not only to I not think before I speak I’m tired and feel sick and I’m bloat and have a funky taste in my mouth all the time. Really? Can you blame me for not being cheery all day long?

I love my daughters and I am thrilled (scared a bit, but thrilled) about this pregnancy, but I CANNOT STAND being pregnant. Just a few months ago I told a friend, “I want to have a baby, but I don’t want to be pregnant or go through labor or breast feed.” She suggested that adoption may be a good option for me – well…we all know how that turned out.

Again, I am excited to have another baby – hopefully another girl (heehee), but I have to tell you that I am slightly apprehensive about having two children so close together. I know it can be done. MammaB had JAG and his younger brother 18 months apart just like Bekah and Baby #3 will be. All of it is a lot to take in and I am still in shock a bit. Without getting too TMI on you I will say JAG and I knew what we were doing, but neither of us really thought we would get pregnant again so quickly. In all honestly I would say it was the middle of June that we decided to leave it all up to God. Well, I guess God had plans for us, huh?

My plans for this pregnancy include not gaining a ton. I am still about seven pounds about where I was when I got pregnant with Bekah, so I am hoping that maybe I can go through this and not gain any weight. I’ll give you a minute to stop laughing. I know that that may not be realistic, but my hope it to be more active during this pregnancy and not use my condition as an excuse to get lazy.

Since Bekah turned 10 months yesterday, I’m slightly freaking out at how fast seven and half months will pass. I have so many things to do to get us ready to squeeze another little human in our already full house. All the while spending extra special time with Shelby to make sure she still gets her part.

Shelby is on a three week trip with my parents. This week they are on the beach where I grew up. The girl has had a busy Summer. She’s been to Missouri, San Antonio, Galveston and is now on South Padre Island. She was ecstatic about being a big sister again. She is hoping for a brother and wants to have the final say in the name selection of this baby. She has been asking me for months when we are going to have another baby – so she was prepared.

I hope Bekah will feel the same way about our new addition when he or she gets here in the Spring. I really hope Bekah decides to sleep through the night before then – we are up most night between 3 and 4 am, sometimes 5 am. That could account for a bit of my moodiness as well.
