Big News.

The truth and Big News.
The real excuse as to why I have not been blogging that much this summer is that I'm Pregnant! Yes, we will welcome our third Dille baby this February. I am currently 17.5 weeks pregnant. Both baby and belly are growing.

The boys are so excited to have a baby. At one point every day Owen will walk up to me, point, rub or pat, my tummy and say "Mommy has baby in tummy" or "That our baby in your tummy."

We will find out in about a week if we will have another boy or little girl. The truth. My heart aches for a little girl, but somehow I have this feeling we will have another boy and I will, yet again, be outnumbered.

Either way, we pray for a healthy baby and an uneventful pregnancy that will allow me to travel back to the States to deliver our new little one. Yes, that is the plan. I feel that going back is best for the baby and I. There are many reasons I feel this way and Mike is supporting me and our decision.

So far, the first trimester was rough. Hence, the no blogging. It was sad to arrive in the States and have no appetite for all of the food I had been dreaming of eating for several months over our vacation. I don't know what's sadder, that or the fact that my appetite began to return as we arrived back in KSA.

Other random first trimester happening, I have quit Coke cold turkey. We arrived in the States, I was six weeks pregnant and the thought of Coke made me want to lose my lunch. It was so strange, but that was it, it was over. This little baby is not a fast food fan (other than Chickfila) and we mostly survived on Jamba Juice and fresh fruits.

That may have been the reason I was a bit ticked about returning to the sandbox this time. (I assure you those feelings have passed- it took a week- and now it's nice to be back in our home- not necessarily back to life outside of camp- but you get the point.)

Other than the usual craziness that comes with having two little boys and being pregnant, life is somewhat uneventful. Which I suppose is also a blessing.

Much Love, A

Just a few photos:
Me, 15 weeks pregnant. I was doing a little maternity shopping with my mom and the boys. Carter thought it was hilarious to pretend to have a belly like me.
Now 17.5 weeks. I really feel like in the last two weeks my baby bump has truly arrived. At least most people realize at this stage it is actually a baby in there and not all of the repat eating out.

Shandi and Alex said...

Congrats!! (Truth be told, I totally knew. Haha Aimee Jones told me and I've been anxiously awaiting the announcement!) You look great!

Aimee Jones said...

Congrats Angie! I'm super excited for you!! A little birdie had told me...and I kept checking your blog waiting for you to post lol:) You look awesome as always, and I will cross my fingers for a little girl!

Julie said...

Congratulations!!! I know you said you think it is another boy, but I will keep my fingers crossed that it is a girl. I think that everyone should have one of each by the time they have their 3rd kid (of course, thinking that didn't help make one of my twins a girl, but hey.)
