We Have Some News…

Pregnancy Announcement

I don’t know how to intro this post, so I’ll just say it: We’re expecting baby #3!

We’re all excited for this new life, and can’t wait to meet the baby! He/she is due February 25. Yep. That’s right: another February baby for us! Reuben and I had a good laugh when we realized the due date. Although it could be a March baby if I go over by just 4 days.

Of course Helen thinks it’s a girl, and James thinks it’s a boy. We’ll just have to wait and see…

Pregnancy Announcement

I’m 13 weeks along and feeling…okay. “Morning” sickness (which actually visits me at night) hasn’t been fun, along with a lot of other little first trimester annoyances. I’ll be documenting this pregnancy in more detail over on my personal blog, Simple Days, so follow along there if you’re interested in pregnancy stuff (basically me complaining about my aches and pains).

Surprisingly, my fatigue has gotten better while pregnant! In fact, I saw an uptick in energy almost as soon as I got pregnant, even before I started my new supplements! My naturopath said that this was probably because your CoQ10 levels go up when you’re pregnant. So interesting!

Now you know why posting has been a bit…sporadic here lately. Juggling being a mom to two littles, being pregnant, and running a blog on top of fatigue has been challenging. But I’m hoping that changes in the second trimester. In any case, thank you for sticking with me! I really appreciate every comment you guys leave – they mean a lot to me! ❤

P.S. – If you think of me, could you say a prayer for a safe pregnancy, delivery, and easy recovery? And you could mention a good-tempered baby as well. ?

Thank you so much for your prayers, Judith! And I'll make sure to keep writing. I like to blog about pregnancy, because then I can go back and look when I get pregnant again and see if what I'm experiencing is "normal" for me. ?

Congratulations, that's so exciting! And great news about the fatigue - we always worry that if we got pregnant again I wouldn't be able to cope with my chronic fatigue so that's good to know. ;) Praying. x

Thank you, Claire! I was kind of scared to get pregnant again because of my fatigue and some dental issues (from an injury when I was 10) I was dealing with, so I was pleasantly surprised when they both got better after getting pregnant! Thank you for your prayers! <3

Congratulations, Erica! I'm guessing this explains your fatigue of the last few months? Haha

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery.

Thank you, Diane! Actually, no! My fatigue started 2 months before I got pregnant, and it improved a little after I got pregnant! Crazy!
