I had a funny conversation yesterday with the kids at lunch. It went something like this.

Anise: I really wish we could get a kitty. I love kitties. They're so cute.
Kaden: We aren't getting a kitty. We're getting a puppy.
Me (a little surprised that Kaden was so sure we are getting a dog. We aren't): We're not getting a puppy or kitty. We're having a baby.
Anise: Let's call the baby Puppy.
Me: You want to call the baby, Puppy?
Anise: Ya! Would that be a good idea?

Hmmmm....I guess this is why the naming of the children is left up to the parents!

Giveaway to check out

I stumbled across this cool site that has some amazing giveaways.

They are giving away a Bumbleride Indie Twin, and I was thinking how great it would be to win this if I really am having twins. But then I thought that even if I'm not, it would still be great because Anise is still young enough to ride.

Check it out!

It's time to let the cat out of the bag...

because I don't know how I've managed to keep it a secret from so many people for so long. Some people I just had to tell. Or I would burst. And I needed someone besides my poor husband to whine to. Thank-you for letting me whine to you, because I know I did it a lot!

Baby #3 is on his/her way. I'm due May 16, 2010. We think - I'll explain in a bit. It's been rough (hence all the whining) so far. I've been incredibly nauseous- even while on diclectin, I feel like I'm about to hurl at any given moment. Afternoons and evenings are the worst for some reason. Seems backwards that my "morning sickness" is a night, but whatever.

So, to explain the uncertainty of my due date. I went to the Doctor yesterday for my 12 week check. Third time around, and it's pretty routine. Pee in the cup, try not to cry when you see how much you really weigh, tell them about all the weird cravings you've been having, lay down so he can prod your belly, and get teary when he finds the baby's heartbeat. Except that didn't happen. He found the heartbeat - good and strong, and he prodded my belly, but then asked me how far along I was again. I told him 12 weeks. He said, "HMMM, you're measuring a bit big for that. Like maybe more like 16 weeks. Or there's more than one baby in there" WHAT!? Go back a second, what do you mean 16 weeks? And what's this about more than one? I'm pretty sure my dates are right - I notice when that time of month comes (how could I not?), so pretty sure I didn't mess that one up. But the alternative- TWINS?! Oh boy.

So, either I'm further along than I thought. Hurray! Which would explain why my clothes don't fit already, and I felt so HUGE at only 9 weeks - I was really 13. OR, we're having twins which would also explain why my clothes don't fit and I already feel huge. Unfortunately the soonest I can get in for an ultrasound is December 1st, so I get to stew about it for a month!

So that's our exciting news - our family is growing, we just don't know by how much yet :-)g
