We learned of a miracle in our family about two weeks after Rob deployed...I was 7 weeks pregnant! Yes, people, it's Rob's baby. Do the math. Anyway, this was a huge...uhm...surprise and really did take some time to sink in but we are very excited about baby #3, due June 1. In keeping with the general theme of the pregnancy, we've decided not to find out the gender of our baby until his or her birthday. It has been so different going through this experience without Rob here so we wanted to be able to share that one thing together--we'll find out if we're having a boy or girl together!
I'm around 19 weeks and finally feel like a human being again. The first 3 months were rough. Now we're through the holidays and I'm hoping the rest of the deployment is easier. We're halfway there!
Rowen is praying for a boy and Harper is sure its a girl. But then again, Harper is extremely confident that she is a boy herself, so who knows. I'm praying for a human baby, that's all :)
