Exciting News

Riddle me this:  What do pickled beats, being knock out tired, thinking you have a UTI because you have to go to the bathroom so much, breaking out like you are a hormonal teenager, feeling bloated & sea sick all day, and lucky number 13 have in common?  The SURPRISE of finding out that we are expecting baby #3 coming soon in January of 2013!
This indeed was a shock as we had been told by our embryologist that we had less than a 1% chance of conceiving naturally.  After much heart ache in the 5 years it took to have our little girl Hanna, and after IVF with several complications to have our little Hayden, it took us by complete surprise when we found out that we would have #3 after 13 years of marriage.
Needless to say we are in a state of shock at this time.  We are excited but cautiously optimistic.  We have had two ultrasounds so far and the baby appears to be healthy.  We are scheduled to see our wonderful perinatologist on the 16th of July for much further specialized testing.
Both kids are really excited about having a new baby.  Hanna is convinced that she should have a baby sister.  Maybe by next post we’ll know.

Additional monthly news...Hanna graduated from Rise preschool and Hayden got to go surfing.  Here are a few of the FB pics that you may have already seen.
