106. SURPRISE! We're Having A Baby!

Well, it’s official! We’re not done having kids! Baby #4 is due to arrive sometime in November or December. My “official” due date is Thanksgiving Day, but I tend to carry over my due date when given the space and freedom to go into labor on my own.

This time around is different than the other girls because it is a surprise this time around AND I’m now in a new decade of life.

What’s different this time:

* I’m 40 and unafraid.

* I have more research under my belt.

* I think I was in a bit of denial.

* My timelines aren’t lining up with other friends my age. 

* I’m including the spiritual in this pregnancy and birth. 

What's the same this time: 

* The cravings. 

* The nausea. 

* The fatigue. 

* The support. 

The girls are excited. We’re excited. It’s crazy. We definitely are bringing a “One more? Why not!” attitude to this experience. I’m resting a LOT more, going to bed early, having crazy pregnancy dreams. All in all, I’m healthy, happy, and super humbled and stoked to be back on the front lines of motherhood—and just grateful that I get to have another child and friend to do life with.
