Well, I think everyone will be very surprised to read this post and found out that the Bybee family is now expecting their 3rd child! You are probably just as shocked as we were! I think it is no secret that this was a huge surprise to us, but we are very excited and couldn't be any happier. I am 13 weeks along and my due date is January 9th. I had my first doctor's appointment yesterday and got this ultrasound picture. Hopefully you can make out the different body parts of the baby. Right side of the photo is the head, middle/top of the photo is the spine, and the left is the bum, and below the bum are it's legs curled up. So cute already! haha
We found out the big news 3 weeks before Tom's graduation. I told my sister, Susan, first because I had to let her know I would not be doing the sprint triathlon that was in two weeks! Then we decided to wait until my first appointment to tell everyone else. Things have been going pretty well so far. I am definately feeling the sickness part of pregnancy. Not fun. Now I can finally complain about it to the whole world, not just Tom and Susan! For me, this is the hardest part of the pregnancy. Once I am over being sick, it's usually smooth sailing! It's funny because most people think pregnant women want to eat, eat, eat everything they see. It is the opposite for me (at least right now). NOTHING sounds good and very few things taste good. EVERYTHING smells bad too. I am constantly saying "BLAH, that stinks!" and Tom says,"I don't even smell anything!" I have 3 main things that I eat right now and they are the only things that I actually like: peanut butter and jelly sandwich, turkey sandwich, and baked potatoes. I think I have also been cursed with being sick longer than most pregnant women too. Oh well, I made it through being sick with 2 other pregnancies, I can make it through another one!
Before we even found out we were pregnant, Evan kept lifting up my shirt and pointing to my stomach. We had NOT taught him this! He also really likes to lay his head down on my stomach too! It's very funny and we really do think he knew there was a baby coming before we did!
I guess this news also means I will be postponing my marathon! I was obviously a little dissapointed, but I am also excited to "re-train" after the baby is born and plan for a marathon and sprint triathlon later down the road. This also means that those who are running this marathon (and anyone else who wants to) will have to run ANOTHER marathon with me!
I am very excited to found out the gender of the baby! I can't decide wether I want another girl or boy. I guess either one would be really great since we already have one of each! We are also glad that Evan will have a sibling to play with that isn't too much younger than him. Well, I will keep you updated on everything that happens during my pregnancy. It's fun that this is our first child that we are able to blog about! Wish us luck...
