Expecting Number Four!

The title pretty much says it all. I am expecting my fourth child which is indeed a blessing. Of course, having gone through this three times previously I should know what to expect, right? Wrong!

I first found out I was pregnant on July 29. The only reason that date means anything is because that is when I knew without a doubt I was pregnant.

All my children have disliked eggs while I was pregnant with them. On this day I cooked scrambled eggs with cheese for my children. I had some myself … and within seconds I was in the bathroom.

I figured it may have been a fluke and that it meant nothing. I went and grabbed a salad out of the refrigerator which had half-cut boiled eggs in it. I decide to only eat one half-cut boiled egg out of the salad. Literally within seconds, the exact same reaction happened. That is when I knew.

I called my husband and told him to pick up a pregnancy test from the store. He brought home the pregnancy test, which I took. After waiting for the results to show I returned to the view the test and it said in big letters: PREGNANT. I was in shock first, then happy: I could not believe it!

I thought on my first doctor's visit I would only be six or eight weeks along. The doctor informed me I was 14 weeks pregnant. I was almost at the tail end of my first trimester. I cannot wait to find out the gender of the baby next.
