Ready or not

Baby #3 is well on his/her way.

IMG_9997

Sorry for the creepy ultrasound picture…but it’s the law of blogging-you-are-pregnant…you must share the ultrasound picture.

I’m due March 19th…so I’ll have 3 babies born in March…so every March we’ll be the party house and sick of cake. :) We are really excited…I’m not feeling ready for 3 kids, but it will come. To celebrate I started a baby quilt that I’m not quite sure about:

I’m trying to jump out of my color comfort zone…but it might be a mistake. I’ll show you even if it is...unless it's really bad.

Pin It!

Also, it can't be really bad. You will make it work. And if you don't, it's still a learning experience and sharing helps make sure we all learn a little bit. :-)

Gayle said...

Congratulations, this will be a special baby.

Katy (France) said...

Felicitations! A third child is a blessing, which we must remind ourselves of when we are tired!! Wishing you a peaceful pregnancy ♥

ktquilts said...

Wahoooo! Congratulations! What a blessing!

Dawn said...

Congrats!! I have two boys under three and know I'm not ready for a third, but I'm starting to get baby fever!! (Ticking biological clock?) Maybe I'll just live vicariously through you and all the other bloggers having babies soon. Good luck with your pregnancy!! :)

Jennifer J said...

Congrats! I remember being pregnant with #3 as a bit overwhelming (two little children to take care of), but his babyhood was wonderful (two little helpers to fetch, carry, and clean up!) I am glad it is you and not me, as I have had six, and the youngest is now 16 (but I also run a daycare of eleven children!!) Take good care of yourself!! You know that only you can, and your whole family is depending on you. Best wishes!

Theophanie said...

Wow! Congrats! That is such happy news. :)

Scenic Pit Stops said...

Congratulations! How fun to have a larger family! Here's to a safe and uneventful pregnancy!

Dawn said...

Congratulations on #3! Babies are such a blessing. Do you wait until the birth to find out the gender?

Lynda said...

three is a great number, I had a boy then two girls just 18 mo apart. My youngest daughter just had her first, a boy and two girls, TRIPLETS! It is a bit overwhelming right now but will be oh so much fun in a year or so!

Татьяна said...

Поздравляю!!!

Congrats! I was looking forward to a March baby at this time last year and now have a sweet six-month-old sleeping in her crib. We have two March kids now so it'll be a party month!

Kellie said...

YAY Allison..... it will either be 3 boys or a little sister who will never be able to date with two older brothers :)

queenopearls said...

Congratulations Allison!!! I am thrilled for you and your growing family. Isn't it amazing the age we live in when we can SEE our baby growing!!! How amazing is that? I wish you more delights and joy than you ever thought your heart could hold!!!

Melissa said...

Congratulations!!! Wonderful news to wake up to :)

Jackie said...

Congratulations to you and your family! What a wonderful time March will be.

Awe, congratulations! How fun....hope all goes very well this pregnancy for you. =)

quiltypleasuresonline.net said...

Ohhh Allison congratulations!!! We have three children and it's a whole lot more fun than two :-) Wishing you a smooth and happy pregnancy. Leigh

Nancy said...

Congratulations!!! Hope everything goes well and you are feeling good!! From my experience, the first 2 kids are the hardest, #3 and #4 (you probly don't want to think about that) were much easier to get used to. You're already in the routine and have all the baby stuff you need, and depending on the ages of the others, you can get at least a little help from them. Looking forward to seeing your "out of your comfort zone color" quilt!

Rita ,Maravilha!!! said...

Parabéns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! três é uma boa conta, felicidades aos cinco!!!!!!

Amelia said...

jlk said...

Sasha said...

Congratulations!!!! How exciting =D I can't wait to see how your quilt turns out =D

Amanda said...

Congratulations!!! I'm due in March with baby #2. I hope you are feeling well. I've got my fabrics pulled and an idea what I want to do, but I'm haven't found the motivation to actually start a quilt for this little one. Can't wait to see what you make!!

Cindy said...

Congratulations!! So happy for you! More reasons to make more of your beautiful quilts and hopefully we get to see!:)

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Congratulations!! You must have some great summers to have three kids born in March ;) hahahaha
I love creepy ultrasounds, it just highlights how special babies are and how amazing the whole process is.
Take it easy,
Lucy x

Deb said...

Congratulations! My daughter's birthday is in March, so when my sons due date was March 1st my mom said you have to have him in February, so they don't have the same month for birthdays! He was born Feb. 28th!

Teje said...

Congratulations!!! How exiting and surely you will sew baby quilts and baby cloths!
Warm thoughts and sunny wishes from Greece! Teje

Congratulations!!

Donna said...

Congratulations! the 3rd is the bonus! My best friend just found out she is pregnant with number 3 and she is 43! She is still in shock since she has a 3yr. and an 13 month old. I say better in your 40's than not at all!!! Can't wait to see the new quilt!

Ruth said...

Congratulations!! :0(

Joelle said...

She looks just like you! Of course I am kidding. My daughter is also due in March. Must be something in the water.

kendascrafts said...

Congratulations! I'm due with my second on March 17. My son's third birthday is 6 days after that. So I'm right there with you with the March birthdays. :-) I don't think your ultrasound pic is creepy. I think the really creepy ones are of the face. :-)

Kathy McIntyre said...

Congratulations to you and your family, there is nothing like a new baby to remind you of what matters most! I am a mom of 9...and really after 3 i could of have kept on going and then reality hit and I realized that it was not just a baby, but it was 18 more years of raising kids and so we quit. That said, I loved those years and every other phase of mothering too...beware they go so fast and then they are gone.

Cheryl Arkison said...

Congratulations! (And my sister has the exact same due date!)

Sandy said...

Congratulations, Allison! We have several March birthdays also. Hope you are feeling well and please show the quilt...your things are always great!

Kelly said...

Congratulations to you! My third child arrived last week. Things have definitely changed around here, but for the better. Of course starting out with twins kind of makes the third a little bit easier. ;) I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well and I can't wait to see your quilt, I am sure it will be amazing!

The Tulip Patch said...

FUN! My three boys are all born in February and you're right...you will be sick of cake! We have a huge birthday bash for everyone in between the birthdays. Be prepared for everyone to do backwards math on March minus 9 months :)

Dara said...

Congrats I am pregnant with my fifth and my due date is April 6. My fourth's due date was the 7th of April. So I could possibly have two kids with the exact birthday just three years a part- it'll be interesting to see what happens. All the best.

Sharon said...

What a blessing! My family has three January birthdays. So the holiday season just seems to run from Thanksgiving to February. Very sick of cake by then!

Carla said...

Congratulations! March is a great month. My daughter and I were both born in March. Did you plan this timing? All 3 in March. A co-worker had 3 boys born in June. 2 on the same day 2 years apart and the 3rd one was born a year later and one day. They planned it that way and the 3rd one didn't cooperate momma said. ;o)

Hitch and Thread said...

Congratulations! I couldn't talk the husband into a third :( Send the leftover cake to my house!

Melissa said...

Wonderful news! Congratulations!

By the way, I love the peeks of color I see in your baby quilt beginnings.

Laura said...

Congrats! I too have 3 birthdays in March and yes, you will be sick of cake by the end! It's fun though!

Collette said...

Congratulations!

chris said...

What fabulous news! My best advice for going from two to three...be ready to switch from man to man to zone defense. :)

toots2u said...

Congratulations.....such happy news!

Patti said...

Congratulations and it is NOT a creepy picture at all.

Sue said...

Congratulations! It's a doddle 2/3 children, you're already in the zone so number 3 just fits right on in. We hardly noticed our third he just blended in with the rest of the chaos! And d'you know a more placid contented person I've yet to meet, so no worries (he's nearly 21 now)!
I'm not sure about that leaving your colour comfort zone, that is seriously scary! ♥

Carla said...

congrats. Your last one isn't very old is he? We had 6 in 11 years. Good on you. Look forward to seeing the quilt.

lisanne83 said...

congrats!! I'm due the 21st (well, 19th by my sono) but I think we have the same doc!! :)

Jon and Jolie said...

COngratulations! That is so exciting! 3. . . what an adventure!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

Congrats to you!! 3 is fun, you learn how to be outnumbered :)

Jennifer said...

Encouragement from a perfect stranger: I found going from 2 to 3 kids WAY easier than going from 1 to 2.

I totally love your site and your quilts and your voice. Congratulations on your growing family!

Brenna said...

Congratulations!! So excited for you and your family!

Mrs. Huse Clifton said...

When I found out I was pregnant last time I was so happy and then I found out it would be a March bday and I cried our immediate family has 7!!! March birthdays!!!! No one looks forward to March or the weight loss after.

rox said...

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABY !!!!!!!!!
It's wonderful being a mother of 3, do not know what you're going to have fun
Blessings to you

Erica said...

Congratulations! I have three little ones as well, and I am so glad that we decided to have three. Our kids are born in March, April, and May. I think the Spring is a wonderful time for birthdays!

Kristin said...

Congrats! My first 3 are May babies and my last is April. It does make it a busy month to have so many birthdays in one month. Oh, our anniversary is in May also. So fun!

BJ is Quilting! said...

Awww, congratulations! Wonderful news! I have always been sorry I didn't have #3.

Connie said...

Congratulations!

VickiT said...

Oh how exciting for you. That's funny you're stacking them all into one month of the year that way.

My birthday is Jan 10th and my twins were born on Jan 15th.
My oldest son had his first child on Aug 29th 4 yrs ago and his 2nd child was just born 4 weeks ago on Aug 30th. lol

Paige said...

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your happy news!

Summer said...

Congrats!!! I have to say that going from 2 to 3 kids was easier than 1 to 2 for me! How exciting for you!!!

Kirsten N said...

Congratulations!! I have 3 kids with birthdays in September so we have just gotten through another year of birthdays:) It was good when they were younger though as we could just have a huge "combined" party but they don't want to do that anymore.

mariarrosa said...

Congratulations!!!

Mari Angeles Iglesias said...

Hi Allison.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.I am also 4 months pregnant! I feel pretty tired and my job as school teacher spends almost all of my energy, so I have almost abandoned the patchwork.

I loved seeing your ultrasound. I wish you a peaceful and happy pregnancy.

Many kisses from Granada, Spain, from espiralcaracola.blogspot.com

Jo said...

Congrats...show us your quilt either way. If it's not to your liking send it to 100 quilts for kids.

Rachel said...

Congratulations! Babies are God's most precious blessings.

srbastian said...

Congrats! We are a Sept birthday house (and with back to school stuff and Christmas looming, a broke house) so I was very happy when my youngest son was born in July! lol

Jessica said...

Congratulations on baby #3! I'm super jealous... I've been trying to talk David into having another one for a year now. Please tell Jay to talk to him! LOL! Are you hoping for a boy or girl?

Lyanna L. said...

Happy news to you! Congrats! =) Here's hoping you don't have too much morning sickness...

Darice said...

How wonderful! Children are a great gift and a great adventure! I hope you are feeling okay?

Jennie said...

Congratulations - March is a great month for birthdays! And I did the same thing, only with November. I have 3 in the first week. We're awfully sick of cake come the second week.

Jeanie said...

Happy news! Congratulations:)

Jenny said...

I was not aware of the ultrasound posting law--noone tells me these things! :) I suppose I still have time though, my 1st is due in Jan. Congrats! hmmm, I just realized that the hubs bday is in feb, mine's St. Patty's day, so we'll have 3 months in a row of bdays!

MaryAnnB said...

Congratulations on baby #3! We have three and our two daughters each have three! Good things happen in threes! And I love seeing ultrasound photos so post away!

vedaavava said...

Congratulations to you and your family!! That's so exciting! I just had our #3 in June and it hasn't been as much harder than having 2 as I expected - still an adjustment, but not as bad - I had another boy though, and I've heard girls can be a bit more of a handful. Best wishes! Can't wait to see what you do with the quilt - regardless!

Petit Design Co. said...

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Holy cow!! How did I miss this post?!?! Congrats Allison! The boys must be so excited! Maybe it will be a little girl. Every little girl needs two strong big brothers to protect her! Congrats again! Can't wait to see what quilts you dream up for this little one! Jenn

Quilty said...

Congratulations. I had my 3 sons all in June. Get all the Birthdays over in one month.

Karen said...

Congratulations! Fantastic news.

by Daisy said...

congrats! my first and only child (at least so far) was born this March 19th and in our country this is also Father's day, so it's double party!
i hope all goes well in your pregnancy! yeiii for March babies!

sariah said...

Ha ha, I understand the sick of cake comment! We have 3 birthdays in Jan and one Dec 30th. We're always trying new ideas: candybar cake(with a styrofoam base in the center), rice krispy cake, cheesecake, etc. Anything for a little variety in those 30 days with 4 birthdays! :-)

You are amazing, but don't feel guilty taking it easy when you need to. You deserve it.
