Well that escalated quickly... Coming Februrary 2022

No, we aren't just pregnant with emotion. 

Here we are with you guessed it.. Coates Baby #3. Don't worry Matt was pretty dumbfounded too. I actually found out after we got back from our mini vacation to Ruidoso, Yes, Tirah and Troy you were here and yes, it was the day after I drank wine all day with Tirah. You know babies just sneak up on you! 

For everyone that might have their panties in a twist from the last sentence, Yes I abstain from all alcohol every pregnancy, every time. I was dealing with the potential loss of my 14 year old cat that just snuck away for 8 days to sleep in someone else's garage and was not paying attention to my menstrual cycle, or lack thereof. 

Week 10 was a bit of an emotional roller coaster with my mom passing. 

The kids are feeling some feelings too. 

Allie thinks the baby will be here in 20 minutes and Eli is still unsure he wants anyone else in this house. However, it's exciting to think we are already at 12 weeks. We have alot to work with these next 28 weeks. 

I think we are more than certain this will be our last biological Coates baby. Two kids are really, really hard. Well at least mine are. I don't know why I thought adding a third wouldn't apply to the struggle but here we are. Add my hormones and anxiety and we've got an interesting cocktail there. 

Do I think i'll be blogging through this pregnancy? Probably. Will it be like the last two documentations? Who knows. I mean at this point I've blogged for the last two kids, so it would be pretty shitty to not document this one. I also have been on an emotional roller coaster at which i'm not exactly sure what my feelings are. One minute, I was watching the gymnastics olympics with Allie and just burst into tears watching Simone Biles. No clue. Just tears. Next minute, i'm rage hungry wondering who ate all my hidden snacks. It was Matt. It's always Matt. 

Let's get into food aversions thus far: 

-Salmon. I literally can't. My brother made a fabulous salmon dinner and it was delicious, only I couldn't eat more than a few bites.

-Scrambled eggs. It smells like wet dog, and I can't. 

-I've also been getting sick every afternoon, not dry heaving but nauseous from either not eating or drinking enough water. 

-I'm a huge coffee drinker, but I can only stomach one cup a day. I used to work night shift where I easily drank a pot of coffee everyday, so needless to say it's been an adjustment. 


Pickles, anything sour/salty, Blueberry muffins, Garlic (same through all of them), Watermelon, oranges, olives. 

Really just give me all the carbs. 

Well y'all with any luck this will be the pregnancy that is quick because I won't be sweating my ass off in the summer with the biggest belly you've ever seen, but now because of New Mexico winters I can't pawn off not wearing pants. It's going to be interesting, but I'm all aboard ready for the ride. 

Here's to the next 28 weeks of rants!!
