here we go! baby #6

i've written this post a hundred times in my head....but i couldn't get my head off the pillow!

we're having a baby!!

fatigue is my most prominent pregnancy symptom....that and, as you can see, general 
growth in the belly area.  oh...this is nothing.  

16 weeks
i am hoping to post about this pregnancy as it progresses.  but this is the real deal people....if your're looking for inspirational exercises and tips on how to keep your legs thin and only gain 15 pounds right in your tummy....well....that's just not going to happen! :) :)  

when i'm pregnant....i. am. very. gain 50 pounds. pregnant.  

the whole family is SUPER EXCITED!!  we're hoping to find out if we're having a little boy or a little girl very soon.

we were going to take progress pictures every sunday because that was the only day i was all dressed up.  it only lasted two weeks.  here are those pics.  

9 weeks.

10 weeks



my first 12 weeks were the most nauseating of all my pregnancies.  i felt very sick and actually was sick a few times...i would get SLAMMED with fatigue.  at a moments notice right THEN i had to lay down.  

i'm feeling really good now....minus the sinus headaches (i'm using my neti pot and its helping!).  i still havn't started contracting, which is soooo great for me!  i always start contracting (braxton hicks) around 15 weeks.  

i make sure to lay down for at least 20 minutes every day and that helps a lot.  i don't really 'sleep' because i need to stay where the action is.....but i can drift in and out pretty easily :)

that's about it for now.  i'm so happy to finally be sharing this news!

  30. Just looked at pinterest and detected this much. Congrats to you and your family. When mine were four under four it was crazy but now saying four under eight isn't so bad. As for the weight this last one took its tole, I will be saying "back in shape" prayers. Most important...stay healthy and rested...as much as you can with a large family!

    All the best,
    Wendy

  59. I got inspired by you and your ability to handle big family. Once I had a dream to have 5 children. After my second child we decided-no more.. but when I saw your pregnancy pictures.. "Why do I want to get pregnant again??!! :-)

    Bless you and your lovely family
