a spring baby

I should probably mention that a huge contributing factor to why my blog has been super lame lately is because I've been sick. I've been sick because I'm growing a baby. That's right folks - I'm pregnant again. Here are a few questions and answers you may be thinking about (or not at all, which is likely).
holding the test, minutes after I took it.
1. How far along are you? I'm 12 weeks. Due at the beginning of April.
2. Are you and Stephanie due around the same time? Yes, within days. It's so fun (or it will be when the sickness ends).
3. Are you nervous because of your miscarriage? Absolutely but I can't dwell on it. I have a good feeling that this is all going to work out.
4. Are you going to have an epidural again? I wanted to do it without medication last time but after 20 hours I gave up. Then I had the most amazing epidural that if I could guarantee the same experience I wouldn't even hesitate! But we'll see.
5. Do you feel like it's a boy or a girl? Do you care which? I figure since I already have a boy, I can't go wrong either way! I do feel quite different this time around and David and I both just "have a feeling" it's a girl but we'll see.
6. Are you really sick? I was feeling absolutely lay-on-the-couch-all-day-while-William-watched-a-hundred-movies horrible for a few weeks but I'm feeling better as long as I make sure I eat first thing in the morning. And I can't really eat hamburgers anymore without serious consequences. That makes me very sad.
7. Are you excited? Yes!

  3. Yeah!! Babies are such a blessing! So happy for you and your family!!

    I had a miscarriage 2 years ago and a few months later got pregnant with our daughter. Losing that baby made me even more grateful, anxious and totally in love with our daughter. Really put things into perspective, you know?!

    I'll be praying for you AND Stephanie! Your family will be doubly blessed this Spring!!

  6. The fear of miscarriage never goes away. I remember reading the post you wrote about your miscarriage and how your emotions were very much the same that I had. My first two pregnancies were miscarriages and it was one of the lowest times of my life. So happy for you...I look forward to reading more. :)

  20. I am so happy for you Elizabeth!!

    Dear Me, S. Hunt is right, you ARE an idiot. If you knew Elizabeth, you'd know she's the sweetest girl ever, and that we - her friends - are very interested in her FAQs. Because we care.

  21. First of all, congratulations Liz! This is the first blog of yours I've seen, and am happy to hear the great news!

    In other business...

    Dear "Me",

    Enjoy your lonely pathetic life as a troll. I hope that Liz deletes your ignorant comment, but until then everyone that reads it will know how pathetic you are in your anonymous trolling profile. If you are any kind of decent human being, you will delete this comment yourself and spare everyone here your unwanted presence.

    Thanks for nothing,
    Will

  24. Dear Me,

    I am Liz's unofficial body guard. Where can we meet to discuss life and to consider the lilies of the field? You clearly need someone to help you "smell the roses". I'm here to help.
