I bet he will be old enough to be really helpful and a great big brother. I have friends with kids spaced similarly and they are such loving brothers--it's really awesome, and no jealousy or rivalry at all.
Awwww, that's great to hear! Thank you
And haha, yeah, it's nice to be able to wear form fitting clothes and look preggo instead of chubby...even though my thighs and rear end are DEFINITIELY growing too, lol.
We ended up telling our son on Saturday night because my husband left yesterday for a business trip and we couldn't wait any longer. It was fun! We had him read a card that said, "We love you, and you are going to be a big brother!" He was confused at first and then excited, and said he wants it to be a baby brother and a baby sister (ha!), and without skipping a beat said that if it's a boy we'll name it Jack and if it's a girl we'll name it Lily. I have no idea where he got that from! Unfortunately those names aren't on our list
Also, my doc just called and said my blood test, genetic counseling, and scan are rescheduled for next week because the nurse is out this week. I'm bummed because I'm anxious to find out if the baby is healthy, but now my husband will be able to join because he'll be back in town by then.
I still have pretty bad "morning" sickness at this point. How are you feeling? How many weeks are you now?
