WARNING: You Must Be Sitting Down to Read This Post

It's been hard not blogging about this but it is time to let you all in on my not very well-kept secret:




Due Date: June 4, 2010


Just one. I know I've spoken on How Do You Do It about having another (or two). But I really didn't expect it to happen so quickly given how long it took me to get pregnant with Ned and Penny. No fertility treatments, just plenty of relaxing nights (before work got busy) and wine. Bye, bye, vino...


For all my work friends please keep this on the down-low - I'm not planning on telling work until after New Year's. It will be hard to be the FOURTH woman in my department to announce an upcoming maternity leave - especially since my tykes will only be 21 months old when the new one arrives. But as one wise attorney told me - "I make every small decision every day focusing on my work so I'm not going to let work dictate the big decisions."


One funny Mom of Multiples item to reflect on - I've started referring to Ned and Penny as my "twin" pregnancy when normally I don't call them the "twins" - I guess it is a way to differentiate between the two pregnancies.


My friend Helen remarked - "You do realize that you are going to have three kids under 2 years old?" "Only for a couple of months," I replied. How's that for positive attitude?

Oh very cool....great way to start the new year. Your blogging, if you can even continue blogging, will be something to read when the 3rd baby joins the family ;) Good luck to you and yours. Babies are such blessings.

Monica Marino said...

Wow, Kristin, I'm amazed and impressed! Our little tykes will be just a few months apart so we'll have to get together lots. Congratulations!

My lips are sealed. Hooray! We're about to have a mass exodus in my department too. Well, they'll deal, right? Let's have lunch and talk about it soon! :)

Wow & congrats. I thought I was a trooper for doing 3 under 3 (for a month, next March, they'll be 0, 1 and 2), but you're totally outdoing me! Way to go.

Momma said...

Oh my goodness, congratulations! What a wonderful Christmas gift, I can't wait for Baby, Esq!

Nicole S. said...

Congrats again! can't believe it's already looking like a baby!! Are you going to find out the sex?

Jane said...

Congrats! Welcome to the club. We should talk. :)

So happy for you! Congratulations!!

Nancy said...

I was wondering when you'd be going "public" with this... :) Congrats again - I can't wait to hear more!

TanyaMom23 said...

Congrats, this is so exciting! I had my three in the opposite order... singleton first, then twins... so much fun being a mom of 3!!!

ElizabethEK said...

OMG!!! Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!

Shelley said...

Yaaaaaaaaaay! I'm so happy for you. You're even crazier than I am! :-) Gavin and Emery will be 28months old when the new baby comes (in a week 1/2), so I'll never have 3 under 2! I'm interested to hear your opinion on a singleton vs. twin pregnancy. It's been interesting and surprising for me.

Congratulations!

Shelley

Congratulations! How exciting! My twins are just 21 months now and they absolutely adore babies. They love to see them when we're out shopping, and they listen well enough about not touching or gentle touches when we see friends with little ones. I'm sure Ned and Penny will be great big siblings! So happy for you!

Rebecca said...

Congrats! What an exciting summer you'll have. :)

Gretchen said...

August's mom said...

Madatmama said...

Congratulations! I love living vicariously through other bloggers' pregnancies. My two are 17 months apart and I love that they are close in age. Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy!

Donna said...

Congratulations! I wish you much luck. I contemplated 3, but then I came to my senses! But you will do great - especially since you had two at once and are still sane!

twin momma said...

how wonderful! best of luck to you!

Liz said...

Congratulations!

I've been lurking for a long time but this is definitely worth a comment! I'm so happy for you guys. My twins are 1 and we are starting to talk about #3 it will be great to see you go through it first.

Heather said...

Congratulations! I just found your blog today. We have 6-month-old twin boys, so I'm on the lookout for other blogs that have twins. We have a 9 year old daughter too, so I can sympathize on trying to do it all.

Good luck!
