A new addition

Most of you know already but some of you who don't facebook or talk to me much don't know But Brooklyn is going to be a BIG sister. Yup that is right we are expecting. I am due Aug 13th. So I am about 16 weeks along. Great news is that I can still fit into my pants..but I seem to be getting more and more fat. My belly is in that in between stage and that may be why I don't feel so pretty these days. At least Clarke tells me everyday that I am gorgeous.. that makes my day. I had heard that one your second pregnancy you show a lot soonier then you did the first time and I can honestly say I believe that is 100% true.
We are mostly excited but very very nervous since we will both still be in school and working full time. What in the world do you do with two kids in daycare and work, school and all the rest of the stuff in this hectic but awesome life. We are struggling with the idea of me quitting my job and living off of our savings and student loans or me trying to find a night job.
I can't help but feel a sense of gratitude for this wonderful baby who is growing inside of me. It has been a huge roller coaster for the last couple of months just trying to get the grasp of it all. There are so many of my friends who are struggling with trying to get pregnant right now and here I am "struggling" with the fact that I am pregnant and wondering how I will do it all. That sounds a little selfish. I know that heavenly father has a plan for all of us and knows what is best for us and when the right time is for our family to come to us on this earth and join us. I am so grateful that I can get pregnant and give birth and raise a family of my own. There is no better calling then that of a Mother.
Here is an ultra sound picture for your viewing pleasure.

You have such a great attitude about it all and I know that you will be able to do it or Heavenly Father wouldn't have let it happen. And if anyone could do it all it seems like you could! Good luck and hope you keep feeling well!
