Violet is going to be a big sister!!

YEY!! Joe and I are 16 weeks pregnant and are VERY excited. We decided to wait a while before we posted anything because there was a possibility that our pregnancy could have a hiccup. Long story short, Violet contracted the coxsackie virus, who then passed it to me. I talked to my ob/gyn and he recommended more testing and talking to a geneticist. We saw the geneticist last week and he thinks that the baby is doing great and we shouldn't have anything to worry about. But, since "we've already come half way down the road, we're going to finish the journey," and have a follow-up visit with him at the end of November. Baby is developing well and is big...

That's right. Baby is going to be HUGE! Okay, I'm exaggerating a little bit but you may remember that Violet was a bigger sized baby (8lbs, 10 ounces) and I attributed my large baby to my weight gain. I gained 65 lbs with her. This time around, I haven't gained any weight BUT my baby still measured 16 weeks when I was only 14 weeks along. Maybe my ob/gyn will have me deliver the baby sooner?

So when's the due date? The baby is due around April 1st (Joe is REALLY hoping for an April Fool's baby). :) The kids will be almost exactly 2 years apart. Hopefully Violet won't be ringing in her 2nd birthday at Winnie Palmer Hospital. ha ha.

I'll post belly pictures and more updates soon!
