Right Now I Am...

making pumpkin pancakes at 8:30 at night because I'm PREGNANT!!!! and they sounded really good!

Yes....the third Hughes child is due May 24, 2010!!

We are so excited that God gave us this little surprise blessing, and his mercies have so been over me this pregnancy...I've been feeling really quite good, in comparison to how I felt with Carson and Olivia....it's amazing. I haven't thrown up even once yet! Not to say I haven't had my fair share of gagging (my nose is my very worst enemy right now!)

I'm at 10 weeks today, and I feel like I look closer to 20! This belly is just popping right out! Is this what happens with the third one, or am I just really out of shape, or is it because I'm not throwing up all the food I'm eating (every 2 hours at the very most, I must eat)...so that's probably not helping the belly situation. :-)

The kids are really excited. Livi especially is thrilled and she talks to the baby every day. She daydreams out loud of all the things she's going to do for the baby (hold her, feed him, buy "newborn baby diapers", etc.) She really wants a baby sister. Carson really wants a baby brother. He was so excited that after we told them at dinner a couple weeks ago, he wanted to run outside and tell all the neighbors.

So anyways, just wanted to post that. I've been such a blog slacker....I'm going to bed so early any more, that I've lost all my blog posting time (I've still been reading blogs because that doesn't take as much brain power/thought), but I hope to get some pictures up soon of what's been going on in our family over the past few months.

Check back soon!

I already feel so in love with that fifth Hughesie.

Gloria said...

Congrats Michelle!! I'm glad you are feeling well too, that helps SO much! And yes, with my 3rd and with this one too, I started showing at like 6 weeks and was wearing maternity clothes definitely by 2 months. I think your body just knows what to do, so it just starts doing it! Are you going to find out what you're having?

Congratulations, Michelle! I remember having a belly pretty early on with #3 and even earlier for #4. Hope you continue to feel well! How cute to hear Livi's daydreaming about the baby and Carson wants to tell the whole neighborhood! Blessings on the next 30 weeks :-)

Michelle said...

Thank you guys, for all your sweet comments and encouragement!
I think we probably will find out what we are having, I just love knowing. :-)
Andrea...Congrats on your third, too!! Last night I made pumpkin pancakes from a mix I got at Trader Joe's, but here's a link to a recipe that I just love this time of year...it's posted on my blog under recipes...

I was gonna say I'm SOOOOOOO excited for you, but Ashley beat me to it! So, I'm SUPER excited for you:) What a blessing and wonderful gift! I can't wait to hear what you guys are having! And yes, bellies do tend to pop out quite a bit faster with the third. Glad you are feeling well friend!

Congratulations Michelle.

I predict it's a girl and I had this feeling you were having a third one about 2 months ago. Weird, huh?

Michelle said...

Wow, that's very wierd Kerrie! You were right about the timing of the third coming along, we'll see about the girl-part. :-) After Christmas.
