Nolan Has An Announcement To Make




And that, my friends, is why you haven't seen much of me for the last 2 months.

This little state that I'm in is, to be totally honest, one of my least favorite things on the earth.  

I wrote a post here during my pregnancy with Nolan called "Pregnancy Sucks".  It has, by FAR, gotten more hits than any other post on my blog.  And by FAAARRR more comments (36) by random strangers than any other.  So I know I'm not alone.

I plan to write a sequel to that post, eventually, but this is not that post. 

This is to let the world at large, those that weren't already aware, that in April,
we will be welcoming a new wee little Hess to our home. 

Only ONE wee little Hess, despite my many fears and dreams that I was carrying twins. . . 
An ultrasound has confirmed that there is just one in there.

Nolan had, at first, stated that he wanted a sister, and that a sister was a boy.  
He has since managed to clear that one up in his head and has stated that he's going to have a brother.  

I think he's right.

Ben, and several others, think it's a girl.

We have many more weeks before we find out who's right.

But for now, we're just praying that I can stop throwing up
so we can get back to life a little bit.

Cross your fingers.

Congratulations! I hope this one doesn't suck as much as the other did.

Oh, the joy! I know pregnancy sucks (...though not so much for me...not that I'm bragging...I'm just sayin'...), but oh the joy of another Hess in this world! My love to you and Ben! Happiness!!!

So excited that Batman is going to be a big brother. The world needs more of your genes in it, in my opinion.

Laurie said...

So happy for you. I loathe pregnancy, but I like being a mom. The sickness and being tired constantly is the worst. Good luck.

Couldn't think of a luckier baby - to have you two as parents and a big brother to boot. Glad to hear your little family is growing in number. xoxoxoxo

Melanie said...

Susan, I only don't hate you because of how hard you had to work to GET pregnant in the first place. Otherwise, you'd be on my list. :)

Heidi said...

HOORAY! For all of you. :) I'm positively thrilled for you all. And I'm thrilled that I'm not pregnant. :D Hope you feel better pronto!

YES!!!! Congrats. I am so excited for Olive's future sister-in-law (he he he)! Sorry you aren't feeling well! At least you won't have to go through wretched summer in the end!

Marianne said...

That's so exciting. Congratulations!

Kalli Ko said...

Just tell yourself you're running a marathon and it can't last forever, then before you know it you'll be me, with sore nipples and your mom on speed dial.

Kelsey K. Hartley said...

Very happy news indeed!! I'll 2nd that on hating the pregnancy phase. Totally wish all-day morning sickness could be skipped right to "what a beautiful baby!" Congratulations!!

Susanna said...

I don't know where to start. Hooray! I kind of wish it were twins because then you would have a reason to still be feeling so yucky. But when that wee one is born, you'll be glad it's only one... at least for a while.

We like you guys a lot. And couldn't be happier that the Hess household is expanding. Hooray!!!

Lisa said...

Congratulations! I knew what the news was the second I read the post title. How exciting! But I'm sorry you're so sick. Time to stock up on mint water again, right?

p.s. Thanks for the birthday wish. Made me smile!
