Surprise! Baby #3 due Dec. 2016

Surprise! We’re pregnant with baby #3 due December 2016. We are as shocked as probably most of you haha!  After waiting 2 years for Lily, we were hoping it wouldn’t take as long with our next. We are so completely excited and a bit overwhelmed thinking about this baby and Lily being 16-17(depending on when the babe comes) months apart.

I found out when Lily was about 7 months old and couldn’t believe it. I was nursing Lily and didn’t even take a test till I was about 7 weeks pregnant after my sister Bree urged me to. We were at a family party and I took a bite of pizza and about lost my whole lunch! I didn’t think much of it, till Bree was like, “Um, you usually love food, why would pizza make you gag? Maybe you’re pregnant!” It was then I realized I was about 15 days late! I took a test on  Monday afternoon and it immediately showed positive. I called Josh at work and we were in shock and just kept laughing in excitement.
I had my first ultrasound when I thought I was 11 weeks along, but the baby was measuring 9 weeks! That was a bummer, but no biggie. I actually have 2 sacs, but my Dr. said it looks like another baby never formed. Yep, I could’ve had twins!!!! I feel a little relieved with that news, ha. See the empty sac on the left, and our little peanut on the right?

**Side note: Josh’s grandma called before she knew I was pregnant and said she had a dream I was pregnant with twin baby girls! So, my bet is this baby is another girl since I ALMOST could have had twins.
 I mentioned a few posts back in Lily’s monthly update that I was losing my milk. I can only pump twice a day now and only get about 2-4 oz. It’s a bummer, but she’s almost a year and then I can fully wean her to cows milk. During the first trimester I was so tired! Nursing and being pregnant is no joke! I’m grateful Lily and J sleep well at night, and now I feel so much better and able to workout and have enough energy throughout the day.
This was my first workout feeling pretty good and a little baby bump at 12 weeks

How Far Along? 1 3 weeks
 Maternity Clothes? No, but there are certain pants I can’t wear without feeling uncomfortable.
 Sleep?  I’m sleeping great minus the frequent bathroom breaks.
Best moment this week? Finally telling everyone!
Weird pregnancy moment? Thinking for a second I was having twins! My Dr. worded it weird and I totally thought their was 2 babies in there until she clarified and said there was only one that developed, but 2 sacs.
Movement: not yet
 Anything making you queasy? I get pretty nauseous if I don’t eat frequently. I have to things with high protein or I’m starving again in 2 seconds. I think it’s because I’m pregnant AND nursing. I have to eat A LOT!
What I’m looking forward to: My next appt. I love seeing my Dr and hearing a heart beat.
We are thrilled to have another baby and can’t wait to find out what it is at my 20 week ultrasound.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
