Let the craziness begin, baby #3 makes their appearance in April and we are sooo excited and maybe slightly out of our minds 😉
Here’s a little about how things unfolded (the story not the act ;)). Kai was about to turn one and Tomas was hounding me about more babies (side note- Tomas and I hadn’t really tried to get pregnant before, we just decided to go the adoption from foster care route first for starting our family 😉 ), like literally 10 times a day he would somehow sneak it into a convo. “Hey Boo I‘m getting up to grab some water would you like some?” “No, I’m good, just a baby”. All day every day. I can’t say that I was exactly in that place. I think I was not against it but also maybe not 100% for it. I felt so content with Mia and Kai but was also feeling like if we wanted more kids this was probably the time. So, after a couple months of his persistence I caved, I was 100% convinced it would take a little while so a large part of me was super content with removing all barriers 😉 but not necessarily trying. I just kept telling Tomas, “let’s just see what happens”.
Turns out “let’s just see what happens” is code for “OMG I’m pregnant!!”. No joke the first month I was about a week and a half late took a test and it was positive. I was super excited but also a little freaked out. Tomas was of course elated and I learned very quickly the strength of his prayers.
Unfortunately, around 7 weeks I ended up having a miscarriage. I was sad but I was also so early on and had only known for about a week and a half. It’s a stupid annoying club that no one wants to be a part of and it really did suck, but honestly having the distraction of two healthy beautiful kids at home helped so much. I waited a cycle and we decided to see what happens again which again led to OMG I’m pregnant!, seeing a pattern here? Turns out I’m super fertile, (reminder to figure out birth control after this one) and getting knocked up has become my side hustle.
I went to the doctor right after I found out I was pregnant and got blood work and everything looked good! At seven weeks, we did an ultrasound and saw the baby and heard the heart beat! When we got home from the ultrasound we told Mia not really knowing how much she would understand because she only knows of babies showing up on doorsteps #adoptionprobs but she 100% knew what we were talking about. She immediately took the ultrasound picture and hung it on the fridge right next to her art work and put her hand on my stomach to high-five the baby.
Since then she asks me questions about the baby all the time and honestly most of the time I have no idea the answer, “Mommy is the baby in your belly na-night, eyes closed?” I legit have no idea. She calls the baby “new one” to differentiate from Kai. So, if you start talking about a baby she will make you clarify, Baby Tie or new one?
She is so excited it’s so cute and when we ask her if she wants a brother or sister she says sister. I’m not sure if she knows what she’s saying but she’s been super consistent about it, I wouldn’t be surprised if she got what she wanted 😉 . As far as Tomas and I, we have zero preference. Since we already have one of each we don’t care either way.
Now that everything has sunk in I couldn’t be more excited. I love that we are adding a third to the bunch and that they will all be close in age. Three kids under 3 ½ pray for us 😉 . I feel like I don’t know many Moms of 3, so we could use all the advice you got! As always thank you guys so much for following our journey and celebrating with us along the way, it really means the world to us! Love you all!!
