Big Family Announcement

Jonah has a little something he wants to share with y'all:

Yep! I'm pregnant! Jonah's going to be a big brother! I'm due March 31, 2013... on Easter.

To be honest, this baby is a surprise, but we couldn't be more thrilled. It took us about a year and a half to get pregnant with Jonah Bear, and I actually had to use fertility drugs and all sorts of other fun stuff, so we didn't know if I could get pregnant without doctor assistance and lots of prayer... Well, it turns out I can! :D It's wonderful to see God is in control.

It's kinda a funny story how we found out. I thought I might be pregnant back in late June just cause I was feeling funny, so I took a test, it was negative, and I moved on. Then I started to get car sick, so I took another test in early July. Still negative, "I was like OK Megan, you're losing it. You're not pregnant, quite wasting tests (those things aren't exactly cheap...)." So I just kept ignoring a few others signs that popped up... until we had a couple close friends staying with us for a weekend. They made scrambled eggs for breakfast, and hot dogs for lunch. When I was pregnant with Jonah those were the two things that made me super nauseous... and well, lets just say I was hiding the bedroom during those meals. For two hours after that everyone in the house kept bugging me that I was pregnant, and I kept denying it. I mean, I couldn't be pregnant, I had already wasted two tests! Finally I gave up and took one more test just to make everyone happy... It was positive... I will never hear the end of it.

So that's why I've been kinda MIA on my blog recently... it seems like everything I wanted to share was somehow tied in with me being pregnant, I also had no energy to try to write a decent post. But I'm back!


  1. Congratulations! This is exactly how we got pregnant with the twins and Caleb. Minus the hotdogs...I just nearly passed out on the floor thinking, I haven't felt this sick since I was pregnant. (Also, I've learned that studies show fertility meds "re set" your body so that you ovulate normally again. We are proof.)

  2. Congratulations! That is so exciting. Looking forward to following your pregnancy journey on your blog. Happy Thursday!
