The first time I asked Doug how many children he wanted, we weren't married, we weren't engaged, I don't even think we had said our first "I love you's".  It was an important subject in my mind and someone who didn't want kids was someone I wasn't interested in dating.

His answer?  "One would be enough."

I laughed.  So he asked me how many I wanted.  I said 3-5.  I don't remember what his reaction was but it obviously wasn't a complete no, since we kept dating, got married, and he and I are extremely excited about this....

I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and baby is due Feb. 4, 2013.  The plan for this pregnancy is to do everything we did with Eli.  As my doctor said, it worked last time so why change anything!  So my cerclage surgery is scheduled for July 30 and I will start the progesterone shots in about 5 weeks.  Hopefully everything will go just as smoothly this time around as it did with Eli.  We would really appreciate your prayers through the next few months.


  1. Congrats, Doug and Anna! What wonderful news! We will be praying that all goes well for you during this time!

  2. Congratulations my sweet Anna & Doug (and Eli!) When do you want your celebratory cheesecake? Love you so much.

  3. So happy for you both! Praying everything goes wonderful.
