It's still 10 less than the Octomom

Well, if you haven't guessed, I am becoming quado-mom. Yes, we are prego with our 4th child. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around what 4 will be like. I know, like I can really handle the 3 I already have! Bill and I struggled back and forth forever about a possibility of a 4th. We are both youngest of 4, and I think that has a lot to do with it. That, and we actually feel like this is what we should do. That'll be a comforting thought in the next few years because we know we are IN FOR IT!  

I'm due Oct. 4th (the day before my birthday), but I'm planning on it coming in September. That first week of Oct is the birthday of me, my sis, my bro and Parker's is a week later. It's just a fertile time of year for my family. The plan was to have this baby this spring, but we just can't seem to figure out how to do that. So basically, from the end of August to first of January, we will be swimming in family birthdays. Can you say "No Money". 

Anyways, I know 4th kids don't get the same thrill factor that a 1st kid does. But we are super excited for him or her. The kids are thrilled, which I'm glad. Emi told me awhile ago that we should be done having kids, but she's warmed up. Parker wants to name it after something Star Wars like Jabba or Leia,  while Emi has decided that DJ would be a great name. I don't know why.

And yes, I am sick as a dog. Nightmare sick. Like zombie after 6 p.m. sick. Luckily, my OB took pity on me and gave me medicine that they give chemo patients. It's great. I'm craving anything I don't cook (like that's new), so I've spent a boatload of $ on take-out. Poor Bill. He really just looks at me and shakes his head. He's helped out a lot. Love you, hon!

Have a happy Sunday!

SO happy for you guys! 4 isn't that bad. Really! You're already outnumbered with three, so just accept it, and embrace the chaos.

Stacey said...

Congrats! I have EXTRA respect for you now that I am 2 days away from delivering #3. No way could I do this again! That chemo medicine sounds like a life-saver...

Oh Liz, that is great news. Congratulations and I hope the sickness will pass (without the pills anyway).

And I think I am glad I am out of the ward...there are alot of pregnant folks over there!

Yeah!!! I'm so happy for you. I have to admit I'm braindead and thought you were announcing you were pregnant with quads and about died. Now I've got my breath back. Sam and I have the same discussions constantly--can we handle another--Ryan is so hard--I'm already a wreck--but I think if you are wondering, you have to do it. If you're done, you know you're done. I'm so excited for you. Good luck with the sickness!

Amy said...

That is wonderful news, congratulations! Every bit as exciting as the first!!

Hope you start feeling better as soon as possible.

Congrats!! I kept the secret - even with Brooke - but now I'm glad to know I can let it out! REALLY let me help with your kids now!! I don't know what I was thinking with your mom out of town these last weeks, I should have been calling and offering! (I do know what I was thinking - I've had Rex, Sarah & kids here and now Baby Max is here) But next week I would love to help - name the day!

Ashley said...

Congrats Liz!!! I am so happy for you and even happier for the little baby who gets to join your family. You guys make the cutest kids! I hope you get feeling better soon. You absolutely deserve all that take-out and then some!
