As many of you have commented it has been a very long time since I have post on my blog. I have missed this writing outlet. However time seems to have gotten away from me. Maybe it has something to do with having two active kids, a loving husband, few sibling house guest, a house and a yard to keep up with? You moms know what I mean?

All that being said I have a little announcement to make and then hopefully I will be posting a bit more often. We are excited to tell you that we are expecting baby Maher #3. I am 12 1/2 weeks along, making me due Feb. 10, 2010. If you are wondering how I am feeling?? Much, much better. Week 5-11 were really rough. Bad moods, nausea, exhaustion, just and overall feeling of yuck. But last week I believe I turned a corner and now I am feeling a bit more like myself.

I know, I should have announced earlier but we were waiting to see Dr. Jen our wonderful midwife. We had our first appointment last week and were able to hear the baby's heart beat. It took several minutes for her to find it. She tried a few different dopplers and after 4-5 min I was getting really nervous. She took a little break and talked to the baby and when she tried again we heard that sweet sound. What a relief.

Oh, by the way Hadassah is very excited to be having another baby around the house. She always asks if she can pray for the 'new baby' in my tummy. She knows what it takes for a healthy pregnancy. She is convinced it is another girl and we should name her Fancy Nancy. I hope it doens't break her heart if baby #3 comes out a little boy.

I am hoping to post pregnancy updates as things progress. So check back and hopefully you will enjoy tracking this fun time along with me. Blessings!

Hi Niina...I've been thinking about you often lately....it's that time of year. I'm sure you understand. Also I went to Mckenzie Pricer's wedding and ran into the Fischers and someone who is a pastor and his wife from North Bend. I think the wife's name was Wendy? She said she knew you. But back to your blog...so glad you're posting. I have checked it monthly so it was fun to see a new entry. And many, many congratulations on the pregnancy. I kind of like the name "Fancy Nancy". Maybe you could come up with a male version though....just in case.
