The One with a Bun in the Oven!

Wanna know the real reason for my laziness and lack of mojo and sleepiness and poopy blog posts lately?

THERE'S A BUN IN MY OVEN!
WE'RE EXPECTING!
I'M PG!
I'M KNOCKED UP!
I'M WITH CHILD!
SOON TO BE EVANS PARTY OF FOUR!
FOX IS GONNA BE A BIG BROTHER!

I'm 10 weeks and 1 day along. I feel like I'm already showing, though it must be taken into account that I never got back down to my pre-Fox-pregnancy weight and still sported a muffin top, I just ate dinner, I'm probably pushing it out unintentionally, and I'm bloated. The joys of the first trimester :)

I'm due July 27th 2012. That seems forever away still, but I know it'll go by fast chasing a toddler around.
I have been sooooooooo tired and unmotivated it's not even funny. I sleep most of the day as the Evans family can attest to after Christmas vacationing with me.
I haven't thrown up (yet). I didn't start vomitting with Fox until 10 weeks. So perhaps it'll still come. I hope not though.
I have major food aversions and cravings.
We had our first ultrasound the morning we flew to Colorado and got to hear the precious heartbeat, as pictured above.
We'll find out the gender around 20 weeks so in 2.5 months.

We already have names picked out (I hold nothing back :)
Girl: Jane Catherine Evans
Boy: Clark James Evans

We are extremely excited for this little miracle. We'd actually been trying to get pregnant for seven months (yes, we are soooo crazy). Every month when I took an early pg test and only one pink line showed instead of two I was heartbroken. But God had our best interests at heart because Fox and baby #2 will be 21.5 months apart which is about as close as I really want and can handle them. I'm grateful for the trial of learning to be patient and working on the Lord's timeline and not ours.

There you have it! I hope to be back to my regular happy, chipper, daily blogging self by the time the 2nd trimester rolls around in a few weeks!

And happy New Year's Eve - 2012 is going to be grand!

  22. HOORAY!!! I'm SOOOO excited! It's so funny how your mom and I both asked about babies on the Q&A post! Heeeeee! :-)

    And did you know that Jane is on our list? It was the only other name in the running for Hattie. :-) We like Jane Elise. :-D LOVE Jane. :-) Clark James is cool... very sophisticated. Are Jane and Clark family names? And what happened to Ender? LOL. :-p

    And it's SOOOOO cool that they're 21.5 months apart! That's my goal. I want Hattie and the next one to be 21 months apart too. :-) I think it's a great age gap.

    Congratulations to you guys! Hooray! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  23. p.s. You're due THREE days before my birthday (and Jeremy's!), and TEN days before Hattie! WOOO! :-)

  31. Congratulations Paige!!! (&Chris &Fox!!) what an exciting time for your family! Happy New Year!
    My 2 are 15 months, 3weeks and 5 days apart (not that I'm counting) & it was so fun having them so close together (totally not on purpose)
    I love your names! Jane is my moms middle name and if we'd ever had a 3rd and it was a girl, Jane would be in her name somewhere. It's lovely! & Clark is just cool!
    Congrats again!

  56. Hate to break it to you, sister but your second to last picture of the Christmas card/family photo shoot kinda gave it away :p I was hoping though for another animal name just so I could envision you hollering at the kids *giggles* Jane is a lovely name! - - so vintage even! My kid are 23-months apart...it's a great space. Enjoy - and congrats to your expanding little family!

  91. Mine are almost exactly 24 months apart... the 2nd vs the 10th of March! And they are close enough in age to REALLY play and enjoy each other... I have 2 boys this far apoart... but regardless, they will be close and have a great time together, after the baby gets to the at least sitting up on it's own stage... and Fox will be his/her hero for some time! Congrats!!
