FINALLY!!!!

I have dreamt and thought about nothing else for over a year now. I am not like other women who hate being pregnant. I REALLY enjoy it! And trust me I could get into a whole long blog about how HARD and HORRIBLE my last pregnancy, delivery, etc. was. But STILL, even as hard as it was, I still enjoy being pregnant!

I LOVE the feel of a child moving and growing inside of me. I love having a belly. I love the closeness I feel to the Lord. I love the vivid spiritual dreams and experience that I have while pregnant. I love the closeness of the spirit and that feeling once the baby is delivered that is in the room, well you all know, is indescribable!! Many of you know that with my last baby I was robbed of all of that. I had a "natural" c-section, in the sense the T-blocker didn't take, so I felt everything but the incision. SO I crave to have a GOOD experience again! I even crave this:


This is me at almost 9 months pregnant with Kennedy. I had three days until my c-section. So one week before I was due! So if any of you haven't caught on yet.....

YES!! WE ARE FINALLY PREGNANT!!! It feels so surreal because for so long now it hasn't happened for us. But we are so excited and have been feeling for so long that our family has been missing somebody!!

So in my own defense, to all those I have flaked out on recently and been unreliable too, I am sorry! I know that many know it isn't like me, but I have been really sick. And as luck always has had it for me, I will continue to be. But I wouldn't trade any loss of meals, lack of appetite, or exhaustion, for this experience once again!!! I hopefully can reschedule the many appointments I have canceled and get back to feeling OK soon!

I have another post I will try to get to soon. I filmed the kids when we told them! They have been so excited and soooooo SWEET to me! Hopefully I am not jumping the gun by telling everyone so soon, but I am too excited and to sick to try to hide it!!!

Congratulations! I am so excited for you and your family. I, too, am one that loves being pregnant. I think it is the greatest gift from our Heavenly Father. I am totally baby hungry and have been for a few months (ok-a year), but my husband wants to wait another year or two! I'll have to relish in your pregnancy updates instead! Good luck-I hope you aren't sick for too long.

Christina said...

Okay- I SO knew you were pregnant! It was all I could do to not say something tacky because some people are really private about that for a long time...not me. I'm so glad you shared. Mason is grown now & I could have another newborn again. Don't worry though, my insanity wouldn't allow it yet. Congrats!! Did I miss how far along you were??

Wow! I wish I had your wondeful attitude. I will just add that to the list of things that I admire about you. You are an adorable pregnant women! I don't think you are suppose to look like that when you are nine months pregnant. Also, I don't enjoy my belly, probably because it's just a belly, not a cute baby! Congrats!

The Phillips Family said...

Wow Bonnie you have quite the fan club. Congrats on the new baby. He or she will be adorable.

Rivka said...

Congrats, Bon. I'm so happy for you. I know you've been waiting for this for a while.! I'm especially happy that you love being pregnant so much. I wish I liked it...at all. Pretty much delivery is the only part I like and that's just because I get the kid finally. So, once the sickness abates you'll have to blog all your wonderful pregnancy feelings so I can live vicariously through your good experience. Maybe it will motivate me to have another sometime!

Mandy said...

Bon!...I'm still crying. What a joyous thing! I am extremely happy for you and your family. I will be patiently waiting to see the films of your children's excitement when receiving the good news.
I am sorry to hear you are sick. May you feel at best soon.

Darla and Kirk Nuttall said...

Hooraah!!! That is great Bonnie. I have been wondering when you would be expecting again. You always said 4 before you were 30 so you did it. Congrats. I wish I could say the same thing about the pregnancy. My favorite part about being pregnant was about 7 months along. I felt my best then. Anyways goodluck. I hope this one goes well. Love ya!

Nelson Family said...

Congratulations! You're a great mom so you deserve more kids. When is your due date?

Jenn and Tyler said...

Wow, to be the 36th commenter makes me feel a little detatched. Congratulations! I'm so excited and I must agree with all the reasons you love being pregnant, I'm already looking forward to doing that again, not too soon though. But I do enjoy being prego. I'm sorry you've been sick. Hope things go well. Lovs,....

The Gray Gang said...

We are sorry you couldn't make it but I understand COMPLETELY!!!! When is your Due date?

Thibodeau fam, Aug.2007 said...

Just me again~
Will you send me another copyright paper for the pictures you took of us? I am frazzled and cannot find mine and I still need to print a large fam photo for my living room.
Thanks a bunch miss Bonny dear.

The Shaws said...

Holy comments! I was scrolling down for so long to get to the 'Post Comments' link, I wondered if I would ever arrive. Ha! You are quite insane for loving pregnancy :)...that's why I've always liked you though. But if that picture was as close to your due date as you say...wow...you don't even get big...and on your third!?! My last month this last time felt like 10 years. I was as big as a house. At least I felt like a house. That's why you don't see pictures of me at 9 months pregnant. I think pregnancy is fun until I can barely roll out of bed or walk out to the mailbox. Hahaha! I'm so happy for you!!! I hope you aren't so sick this time around.

Snedaker Family said...

Congrats Bonnie! That is so exciting . . . I love how you described being pregnant. I think it's a perfect explanation of what it is like. I hope you aren't feeling too sick!
