And one more makes three

Uploaded: Nov 30, 2016
Right now I am pregnant with our third little one. While this pregnancy has been quite similar to my previous ones, the main difference so far is how aware our son is about becoming a big brother again.

This time when I found out I was pregnant, I was unsure when to share the news with our kids. Last time our son was too young to really know what was going on. This time I knew he would understand the announcement. I also knew that we couldn't wait too long because our kids would be tagging along to some of my prenatal appointments and our son had picked up on my nausea and lower energy early on. I enjoyed telling our kids early enough for our son to help us spread the news to our family and friends.

Of course there will be challenges and surprises ahead. But, this time around, I've been very comforted knowing that our son has a much better grasp of what he can expect both during my pregnancy and after baby arrives.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
