# 4 What a surprise!!
Tue, 01-15-2013 - 1:07pm

My name is Amanda.  I am 30 years old.  I have three other children, Rebecca (12), Grace (8), and Lex (4).  My husband and I have been married for 13 years.  I was so content with the three children that I was blessed with.  I gave away all of my baby gear. 

Then.... over Christmas break I started to feel ill.  Two of my children came home from school with the flu, so I assumed I was just sick.  I noticed something was off.  I took a test, and about hit the floor from shock. 

Now the excitment is starting to build.  However I am so nervous about this.

Wow! It was time keeping in line with a baby every 4 years lol. Congratulations. This is my 4th baby too, and it is the only one that we did not plan for. I also gave away my baby stuff. You are still young. I am not terribly old-39, but I feel younger. I am in better physical shape now than I was with my other pregnancies. I'm starting out about 30 lbs lighter and fairly fitter thanks to my gym membership. I hope your pregnancy goes well. You must be due at the beginning of September. I am due on the 23rd. I have a DD with a 9/22 bd, and a DS with a 9/13 birthday. My husband should have known that I am most fertile around New Year's Eve ;-) Best Wishes, Tanya
