Positive!

So I woke up yesterday morning very sick to my stomach, and then I went pale after I quickly did the math of my last period (sorry for any faint of heart readers). I quickly did the math and realized I was "late". This WAS NOT PLANNED!!!!!! I ran to the store to "buy milk" with the kids, Darren was at work. I came home, locked myself in the bathroom and took the pee-stick test. I sat nervously and sure enough 2 lines appeared! AHHHHHH!!!! 4 kids???? What in the world are we going to do????? Oh my goodness, I was so shocked and freaked out. I hid the box behind the plates in the cuboard, hid the test and laid down with the kids for nap so I wouldn't have to think about it. I woke up, Darren came home from work, went to get a paper plate out of the cabinet and saw a "box", grabbed it and then hunted down my test. He comes upstairs and says "so.... when were you gonna tell me we were gonna be parents.... again.....?" I said, after I got over the shock of it. Any way, long story short we are shocked and stressed, but know that God is in control of all things, so, we'll find joy and start preparing to be really out numbered in 9 months! I posted my baby's progression pic on the side of my blog. The baby looks like an alien right now, but it's funny to look at! I still can't believe this!!!!

wow. Congrats girl!! You just want to be like me, face it. Pregnant at the same time. I love that you said you'll have to find joy. You can do it girl, it will be fine. Your kids are older and will hopefully help out this time around. At least that's why I tell myself in order to convince me that I want at least that many. :) Love that you hid the box behind the plates. HOw random is that?

How exciting! Congrats! You are so funny. You are amazing with kids...I loved watching you and your family during Sacrament. Your boys were always so well behaved. I was envious. Mine was running off and making all sorts of noise. Best of luck with the pregnancy. Do you have a hard time being pregnant?? Being sick and all...

I'm so happy for you! Were any of your other kiddos "surprises"? I hope all goes well. It doesn't seem like that long ago when Lily was a newborn. You're such an awesome person, we love you and miss you a lot.

Robin, I love it, especially the days left to go and the forming fetus. I know all will be exciting and enjoyable. Number 4 pregnancy, you hardly have time to think about yourself. Go GIRL. Mom Howe
