It's About Time

Been a while huh? Well, though it doesn't quite redeem me at the moment, I have a TON of pictures and updates coming very soon. I'll even commit to this week. You see, life at the Wetzel household took a decided turn for the unexpected three months ago, when we discovered (surprise), number three is on its way! I am now 17 weeks, and starting to get a little of my life back. Instead of spending all my free time sleeping I can actually do a little more, the trick is to go to bed REALLY early and get 9 hours of sleep. It's working great.

For all those who are curious, yes this pregnancy is going incedibly better than any other due to some really awesome anti-nausea drugs, regualar exercise, and--probably most effective of all--a couple really wonderful blessings from Ben and my bishop. I'm already showing, gaining lots of weight, and trying to think of names (the hardest part...well, almost). We're happy, though nervous--which probably describes every pregnancy I've had--and I'm starting to get used to the idea, and yes, even getting excited to meet the little tyke, especially since I've felt the baby. I love to feel those little kicks getting stronger almost by the day, and all the wonderful movements as the baby gets more crowded, it's by far the best part about being pregnant. And even though I grow out of all my clothes and feel really big, it's exciting to have a growing belly and amazing to think how BIG babies are. My baby is already about as tall (measuring from head to rump) as a pencil or pen. Amazing!

As I noted before some great and amazing picutres are on their way, so check again soon this week....or, later this week.

Yay! You have such lucky kids-- I'm glad there is one more on the way. You and Ben are such good people and parents. We really miss you and it's good to see an update. We survived summer and the kids just went back to school (sniff, sniff). I'm so glad you are feeling better too. You are a trooper:). Love Steph
