Rick and I have some amazing news to share... we're going to have another baby!! I am 10 weeks pregnant with Baby Thames #3 and we couldn't be more excited! My approximate due date is October 24th, which will be so strange for me to NOT have a baby born in February! :)
We found out the morning of the memorial service for Rick's mom, which seemed fitting as we mourned the loss of one life and were able to celebrate news of new life. Around week 6, I started having some problems which luckily turned out to be nothing, but it was scary nonetheless. But, I had my first official appointment today and we got to see the little heartbeat on an ultrasound for the second time, so we feel comfortable finally sharing the news with all of you.
Since we found out the gender the first two times around and because we have a girl and a boy already, Rick and I have decided to not find out what we're having this time around. I think it will help make this pregnancy exciting and it was also give Rick the chance to step out into the waiting area and make the big announcement of, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" It will be a long wait, but I think it will be worth it in the end to have such a great surprise! Here are the two ultrasound pictures we've gotten so far. The first is from week 7 and the second is from today, week 10.
