There is nothing like a good old surprise. Other than this one. Remember? Ya my wall is still stained from some of it.
Or when my girls spill cereal from the box all over the floor. That's always fun.
Or when i'm in the shower they find my makeup remover and open it and spill it all over the bathroom floor.
Or when they are taking a "nap" but taking forever to go to sleep and all I hear is jumping around and then some crying, then more jumping, and then crying. So I finally decide to go up and check out what's going on and find them without diapers on and Presley pooped all over the crib and Jayci is in the other corner crying freaked out from it. Oh goodness. That was last week by the way.
Well last week I got another surprise that I totally didn't expect.
It came out of nowhere.
I almost passed out.
and may have cried a little.
well, wouldn't you??......
ARE YOU SURPRISED??
SO WAS I!!!!!
Those were my exact words!! "What the?!"I also may have been pacing around my upstairs naked saying over and over "I'm Pregnant, I'm Pregnant, holy crap, I'm Pregnant!!" Your probably wondering why I take my pregnancy tests naked? Ya thought so.
Here's the story! I know your probably dying to hear it!
First of all, we were definitely NOT trying. I was on birth control, I had an IUD in. They are just as effective as the pill (99.9%), which I cannot take because I puke like crazy and pretty much want to die. So i've tried the pill, the patch, and then I decided on the IUD after the twins were born. It has been great! Until now! Holy Mother. Yes i'm pregnant. Just thought i'd confirm it again. This last week has been an emotional roller coaster! Not knowing if it was an ectopic pregnancy (which are very common with the IUD), or if I was going to miscarry because the IUD was still in place. They wouldn't take it out until the blood tests confirmed pregnancy, which took over 2 days. Then I got a little impatient and they sent me for an ultrasound to see where everything was before doing anything. The IUD was far from the sac so my dr. FINALLY took it out. Everything looks great from the ultrasound so we are good to go. That day was also emotional because it confirmed it! I was preparing myself for every option so finally getting an answer was all a bit overwhelming. I cried a lot this past week.
Oh back to why I was naked. I was a day late for my cycle, and normally I wouldn't care. But I had no sign of it and had this feeling that I needed to take a pregnancy test. I know only a day after? I thought it was weird too. So I had one laying around, and decided to take it right before I jumped in the shower and if it was negative I wouldn't tell Dustin (cuz he thinks i'm a freak like that) and just go on like nothing happened, no big deal right? So I did the deed, put it on the counter and covered it up. Next thing you know i'm prancing around nude upstairs in complete shock talking to myself! Dustin was out quading for the day and I had no way to get a hold of him and he didn't get home until 9 that night. Awesome. I was with his family for the day and I called the doctor right away and he got me in that day. Well it took all week to finally get it out and get some answers but i'm glad it's all over and we can now enjoy (while still in complete shock) that we will be having our 4th CHILD, 4TH!!
Do you want to hear how I told Dustin? Well this last month i've been a little overwhelmed with life, him working and maybe being pregnant. ha. Also I noticed i've gained a few pounds and it came out of nowhere and was actually really hard for me. Dustin always told me I was beautiful no matter what and I still looked good. Well that morning he left quading at 5am, losers, and wrote me a little love note on the counter saying bye, have a good day, and so on. Well I thought it would be cute to write him a little note too! It went something like this at the end, "thanks for making me feel beautiful all the time.....etc, and in 9 months when I look like a whale you better still tell me i'm hot and that you want me! Love Mind.
He looks up, "aw thanks babes", looks down at the note, looks up with this look on his face, "are you pregnant?" me, "yes!", him "what, really??" with the BEST shocked and excited look i've ever seen on a face! Me "Yes! I took a test this morning!" He grabbed me and gave me a huge hug and I bawled. It was such a great moment. He was so happy and that made me happy.
The chances of being pregnant with an IUD are slim, the chances of having a NORMAL pregnancy are even slimmer! So all I can tell myself is how meant to be this was. Dustin is so excited and told me he knows it's a boy. Right. BUT he also said he'd be happy with another girl too.
Are you still shocked? Me too.
I also debated whether to tell right away or wait until 12 weeks, but no I don't care, if i'm in shock everyone else can be in shock with me and maybe it'll seem more real! Our families freaked. Both my sister Kristy and Britt wouldn't believe me and told me to prove it. How dare they doubt me. I guess I do randomly say it in conversations, "I'm pregnant!" (cuz it's funny) and eventually they just say, whatever Min, your such a dork.
Well i'm due April 23rd and feeling good so far. I may have lied last post about the tired thing. Or not, because I am anemic on top of it and I have been for a while so the exhaustion just feels normal. But the nauseous has started. It's random and not super bad, but thats about the only symptom I have so far. Oh and bloating, I already feel 3 months and I just found out! Awesome. not really.
It's like i'm just going along living my crazy life and BAM! I'm pregnant, here's a few pounds and some sickness to go along with it!! And i'm supposed to adjust within a week!
We are really excited, and we were going to maybe start trying in the spring, but now i'm DUE in the spring, so a little sooner than planned. But at least we were planning on more kids, so that's a good thing! Dustin just laughs every time we talk about it. I cry. Not because i'm not happy but because i'm still in complete shock. It's a little overwhelming! Mixed with the emotions of pregnancy and the thought of taking care of a house, 3 kids, and ME PREGNANT! I usually come last or not at all. Isn't that normal? I thought so!
I also feel so blessed, that I can have this many children. I love my girls with all my heart so I definitely feel like I have the love to give.
Kyla is SO excited, it's all she talks about. "Mom can I hold the baby when it comes, because it won't be too big?", "Can I hug and kiss the baby goodnight", and this morning Jayci was on my lap, she goes, "mom Jayci can't sit on you she'll hurt the baby!" How adorable is this. It's pure joy, that's what it is. I may be tearing up just writing this, thinking about everything that has gone through my head and now writing it down for the world to see.
I also don't want to talk about the chances of it being twins again. Nope don't want to hear it. But hey, if I did once, I can do it again. Right?
Well there now you know, and now I won't go crazy anymore!
