I've taken pictures during my other two pregnancies so I thought I'd do the same for #3. I'm almost 17 weeks and slowly but surely the nauseousness and sickness have been going away. I'll admit I am very envious of all women who do not get sick while pregnant, but I am also very grateful that I have never had any major pregnancy complications and my labor and deliveries have been quite easy... seems like a fair trade. Keeping busy with Garrett and Jenna has made time fly despite not feeling great. I think with the holidays coming time will only continue to fly! At my previous two appointments the Dr. picked up the sounds of baby K kicking before he picked up a strong heartbeat. I've also been feeling the baby kick and if I lay on my back Dave can also feel it already....I think my stomach and ribs are in trouble! We haven't talked about names yet and since they were hard to come up with for Garrett I don't think it will be any easier for this little babe. My sister is due three weeks before me and they know they are having a baby boy, we will not be finding out....just love the surprise way too much!
The journey of the Kapenga/Meyer clan officially began on 8.8.08. Jenna was already 3 at the time and in September of 2009 we welcomed Garrett in our family. We are now eagerly anticipating the arrival of #3 in May 2011! I love being a mom to Jenna and Garrett. These two precious little people remind me daily of what really matters in life. I have been blessed to continue my marketing career by working from home as a marketing consultant with Image Builders Marketing (although working from home with kids does come with challenges). Dave is a toolmaker at Drawform. We live in Zeeland and love being close to family and friends to share the adventure of life with!
