I am so excited and thankful to be expecting baby #3 toward the end of April 2011. I have a few friends and acquaintances who desire babies of their own but have not been given those desires [yet]. Thinking of their trials and difficult circumstances makes me very appreciative for the blessings of being able to have another baby. I just don't take this for granted, nor the healthy lives of my two wonderful daughters. This pregnancy has been remarkably better than the other two. I thought Clara's was pretty good, but this one has had even less sickness! I'm days away from the end of the first trimester. Izzy and Clara are 20 months, and Clara and #3 will be about the same.

I am seeing one midwife for this whole pregnancy, and I will deliver in this birthing center:

I had positive experiences in the hospital with doctors and without epidurals, but I am excited to experience midwife care this time around. Last week, I heard the heartbeat on the dopplar, and was filled with an overwhelming thankfulness. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being a wife, mom, and homemaker.

"Just as a little thread of gold, running through a fabric, brightens the whole garment, so women's work at home, while only the doing of little things, is just like the golden gleam of sunlight that runs through and brightens the whole fabric of civilization." -Laura Ingalls Wilder
