Look, it's a......

Head is at the right, legs on the left, arms sticking up in the middle!


...BABY!!!! Yep, we are finally pregnant. It took us exactly a year to get pregnant with number 3. We are so unbelievably excited. It doesn't quite seem real. This baby is due around October 6. Apparently the only time we can have babies is in the fall! We were so excited to have an ultrasound last week. I didn't think we would be able to see much, but the baby was moving all about and waving arms and legs, it was so fun to see. The only complication so far is placenta previa. The good news is that 90% of placenta previa corrects itself before the 20th week. The bad news is that my doctor told me I can't do anything until my next ultrasound. No lifting, no exercising, on and on. It's going to be a rough 2 months for the family. But it's important to keep every one healthy. The girls are excited, although I'm not sure how much they get it. They will for sure when I'm showing. So this also means that I will be 7 months pregnant at the Worth family reunion... anyone care to join me in pregnancy? Nancy or Nancy?

Well I am of course so happy for you guys! I always love when other people are prego with me, even if you are far away. I get to do my glucose test today, something for you to look forward to! Keep me updated on the pregnancy okay!

Nancy Sabina said...

Hooray! Congratulations! Yippee! That's so exciting. At least you know you have the right season of maternity clothes, right? I wish I could say I'll come take care of you, but I'm not sure having three more children in the house would really be helpful. If you ever feel like it would be, just say the word and I'm there.

And as for the reunion - I will NOT be joining you in your condition. Give me just a little longer.

Also I have the placenta previa and it turned out fine I had to have a second ultrasound at 28 weeks and it was all good so no worries! Again Congrats and we are so happy for you guys. Lots of love!

Congratulations--how exciting! Good luck with the next couple months; hope you survive it. Pregnant at the reunion? Yikes.

Heather said...

Congrats!! I'm so excited for you guys! Good luck taking it easy the next couple months. At least there's no more snow to shovel, right?!

Kari said...

Yeah!!!! There's nothing more exciting than a new baby!! I am so happy for all of you. And just think, you have 2 little mommies to "help" you out!!!

Kelly said...

FINALLY, I don't have to keep it a secret anymore!!! PHEW!! I was starting to break a little.
I'm apalled that you wouldn't ask me to join you in the pregnancy, I'm the most likely candidate, right?! ;) Don't worry, I won't steal your thunder, you can have the pregnancy thing all to your own at the reunion, I'm not looking to join that club anytime soon!

CONGRATULATIONS! That's so exciting! Good thing you got that bowling out of the way before you got the doctor's orders. ;) Just kidding!

Well, you know you have a lot of Relief Society sisters who would be happy to do things for you. (Ooh, ooh, pick me, pick me!) Seriously though, I'd be happy to watch kids, make meals, etc.

Kathrin said...

No, no, pick me!! Congratulations Chelsea! That is so exciting.

Nancy Clark said...

Alright, alright, you've convinced me... I'll join in on the fun! (I was forbidden from telling you sooner, but The Donkey decided to break the news over at WifeAdvice.com, so here I am). I'm just a month behind you...

Sam & Alisha Oldroyd said...

Yay Chels!!! I'm so excited for you! I can't wait to find out what you're having! Let's see... you must be about 12 weeks? How exciting! Let me tell you though-- that whole no lifting, etc... harder than ya thing. For me the hardest is when people are doing things, like cleaning up, and I have to sit there like a blob and do nothing because I can't lift anything. Or when my family is around and I can't even pick up my nieces/nephews... even the babies! Or grocery shopping... who's supposed to unload them? But you're right, taking care of baby is the most important thing. Congrats again! I'm so happy for you all!

PamNoyes said...

Congrats! We will all be thinking about you and hope that everything goes swimmingly the rest of the pregnancy!

Kari Cole said...

Hey Chels... just reading some blogs and I'm sure glad I did... Congrats on the baby to be!! Very exciting! Hope things go well- keep us posted. Baby Hunter turns the big "one" this next week if you can believe that! How time flies!!
