Well that's not entirely true.
I'm really good at keeping other people's secrets.
I'm horrible at keeping my own.
Which is why I've been gone.
Because I know something that I had to keep a secret.
And this blog is where I go to talk about everything that's on my mind.
And the number one thing on my mind has been something I can't talk about.
So.....what is it?
Okay fine, here it is.
WE'RE HAVING ANOTHER BABY!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to literally shout it from the rooftops, but we kept to the typical 1st trimester = secret, 2nd trimester = share way of doing things.
I'm sure everyone will have tons of questions, so I'm using this blog posting not only to announce our exciting news, but also to answer some of those common questions.
WHEN ARE YOU DUE?
ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER C-SECTION?
That being said, I will be having another C-section, and that means that the delivery will be scheduled.
At this point, our expected delivery date will be March 30th, 2015.
ARE YOU HAVING A BOY OR A GIRL?
AND we won't have an answer...until March 30th, 2015.
That's right! We are NOT finding out the gender of this baby prior to delivery.
We will be participating in one of the only true surprises that you get in life, the surprise gender reveal of the baby at time of delivery!
BUT, YOU REALLY WANT A GIRL THIS TIME, RIGHT?
It's not that we don't want a girl, of course we would love to have a little sweetie to love on.
It's just that we don't really care!
I understand that a lot of people's ideal family includes a little boy and little girl, however, we really will be super excited with whatever God gives us this time around!
HOW MANY MORE KIDS ARE YOU PLANNING ON HAVING?
Steven and I have always planned on only having two chidren, regardless of gender, from the day we got married.
That opinion has not changed, and I don't forsee it changing after this baby is born.
There are a whole bunch of reasons that cause us to limit our numbers to two, and we feel very comfortable with that decision.
...BUT THE WEBSITE IS "ADVENTURES OF BABY MD"? WHAT WILL IT BE CALLED NOW?
I'm totally up to suggestions at this point, because I know it's not fair to continue this as MD's blog when there will be another sibling sharing the spotlight come March. I will make changes as I'm able, so please have patience with me if there are times when the website is either down or just completely horrid to look at as I'm updating things (I have NO tech skills whatsoever).
SO there you have it :) The BIG news I just couldn't wait to share, and yet, waited to share!
I can't wait to keep you all updated as our family expands (along with my belly).
