So, do you want to know my secret?

I will admit.
As far as secrets go this one has been really REALLY tough to keep under-wraps but somehow I have.
Until today.
I mean, I have shared everything with you.
You experienced the excitement of my children's successes, the pain in loosing family members and dear pets.
You have witnessed my attempts at humor and creativity.
Even when they have crashed and burned miserably.
You have seen my unbridled anger and heart wrenching sorrow in the face of not one but two back to back losses so keeping this secret to myself for such a long time was hard.
I wanted to share.
Honest I did but I held this one just a little closer until I felt it was safe to share.
And today I can...
Big Daddy and I are expecting sweet baby #4 in the fall.
Yes, that means I am way WAY past just finding out.
In fact today is my first day in the 2nd trimester and I couldn't be more thrilled!
Granted, this also means that the endless trips to the bathroom are starting to end and hopefully so will my "morning sickness" but my energy is starting to pick back up too.
So, to give you an idea of how big baby is...

Your Baby: Week 13

Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords... savor this, their non-functional phase. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy. (Much more convenient.)

That feels better :)
