A riddle explained.
You guessed it!

Here is the "scoop" as I know it:
1. I have been very nauseated. (Did I mention that I get whiny in this condition?! :-)
2. I have not yet been to the doctor because I am too sick to find one right now.
3. It looks like this addition is due late November - early December.
4. I think we are in line for another "prince."
5. Don't think we will find out which it is; I like to be surprised.
6. My friend, Electa, created a perfect word for me - "sneezausea." I love it! :-)
7. Another friend is getting me some stuff that actually kicks the nausea. I tried it, and it works!!!!!!!! (At least my OH trip next week will not be dreadful.)
8. My younger sisters are floating in the clouds.
9. Seth and Ethan are thrilled to pieces. (More details later.)
10. This list is in no real semblance of order, but I have an excuse for everything now! Hee. Hee.
11. Thank you for all the kind words!

The climate in Indiana is much better for pregnant women, you know. (Well, if a pickup truck doesn't try to flatten you...) I'm curious as to what's making you think it's a little prince again this time.

Congratulations, Martha! Hope you start feeling better soon! I know how miserable it is to be "prego-nauseated and gaggy" but to have "prego-sneezeausea" would just be terrible!

That is so wonderful. Congrats and hope you feel better soon. Thanks to you and your sis-in-law, I now get to listen to one proud grannie brag on her upcoming arrivals some more. Just kidding, I don't mind in the least, and she loves you'll very much.

What about your husband or is he still passed out? You have told him haven't you????

At 12:21 PM, Blogger Les said...

Someone HAS to have a girl! I'm not giving up hope yet, but I'll love another boy too! If it is a girl, or a boy, you could always name it after your favorite cousin. Leslie is a unisex name!

Congratulations to all of you! I'm sorry you feel so sick. I hope that this pregnancy goes better for you in that regard. I'm with you on being surprised. We didn't find out what we were having and didn't tell the names we had picked out. It was such fun to call and share the news.

At 1:44 PM, Blogger Martha C said...

ROSEANNE, My mother-in-law talking about her kids? Surely you have the wrong woman!:-) Hee. Hee.

GENE, believe it or not, Troy is thrilled. In fact, he is already talking about the next pregnancy. I told him you should never talk about a future pregnancy when a woman is sick with the current one!

CONGRATULATIONS! I was just wondering the other day...if y'all were going to add a princess to your castle. I wonder if it'll be a KNIGHT, or a LADY? How exciting...although I DO KNOW THAT THOSE TIMES OF BEING SICK ARE NOT FUN! I've been there 3 times! But when you hold that adorable, little, squirming, bundle of JOY, IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL! =)
Take care,
Love, Heather

Congrats! It will be fun to have a pregnant one among we bloggers. You really will have an excuse for anything and everything! :)
We need to come up with a blogger baby shower. A cyberspace wouldn't that be fun...
I wish you a healthy pregnancy. We will certainly look forward to all the details. You know how we women never tire of those...

At 6:05 PM, Blogger Carrie said...

Great, that means we can bombard you with our name suggestions clear up until the arrival!

IF I were to have another baby (which I'm absolutely NOT!), I'd want another boy. The thought of a girl is just too scary to me (shivers).

Congratulations, Martha! How exciting. So happy for you and your family. =)

At 6:26 PM, Blogger Julie said...

I sure hope you start feeling better soon. I remember you telling me how sick you were with Seth and Ethan! Hope you are able to ride in the car better this time, especially with the trip you're about to take. Looking forward to seeing you Sunday.

At 6:55 PM, Blogger Trisha said...

I just love reading your make me laugh all the time! I am so happy for you...I hope you start feeling better! It will all be worth it when you get your little one!

At 7:51 PM, Blogger Sankey Family said...

My congrats to add to your collection of comments. I hope your pregnancy is a great one, but I can't give you much encouragement on getting a girl - Not a good success story for that. But I will say that having 3 boys is just the greatest. I couldn't be happier.


At 8:56 PM, Blogger Philip said...

Oh nifty! Congratulations! For your sake I do hope that the sickness is only temporary. Many happy wishes your way. Marianne

At 4:11 AM, Blogger Leanna P. said...

Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I hsve complete sympathy for your sickness. I was sick 24/7 for 4 months - NOT FUN! But well worth it!

At 10:15 PM, Blogger Lavy Country said...

Congratulations! My advice -- BarleyGreen for the sneezes and peach tea for the nausea. I hope you are feeling like your perky self soon.

At 1:42 PM, Blogger Sarah Cook said...

Loving your blogsite! I have left plenty of comments already today. I am really excited for you. I am praying for you and the baby as well. I am in the same boat, but my allergies aren't like yours. You have the boys, and I have the girls... you want to switch this time? No, really, I will still be happy if I have another girl. Faith, Charity, what's next?
Say, it was really nice visiting with you the other day... I wish we could kidnap you and keep you here in Ohio... I miss you being around. Don't think I will ever forget my talking to you through the the apartment floor as you washed laundry. Precious, isn't it? Or the water pouring through my ceiling (another one of your boys' activities, I think, at least one of the times :-) Come back soon and visit. Hope you get to feeling better and the allergy season goes away. Bless your heart.

Congratulations Martha!! I am very happy for you. So are you having a boy or a girl??

At 10:28 PM, Blogger Brenda said...

Congrats, Martha!! I'm trying to catch up on blog reading and was so happy to read your news.

At 2:58 PM, Anonymous Jen Glick said...

Congratulations! I'm happy for you all! Wish I could see you all more often!

At 5:05 PM, Blogger David and Sarah Fry said...

Oh you make me so excited about getting pregnant again someday!! PLEASE PLEASE give me the name of that nausea medicine. I was researching old fashioned remedies the other day and found one that suggested drinking boiled cow manure for something. I get pretty desperate when I'm pregnant, but not THAT desperate!


Sneezeausea. That's hilarious. My husband heard me cackling hysterically and came over to see what's so funny. They just don't get it.

At 6:29 PM, Blogger Erika said...

Your new little one will be coming about the same time as mine:-)

At 9:37 PM, Blogger Julie said...

OK, you have officially set the record for the number of comments left on one post!! It was so good to see you on Sunday. Hope you're enjoying your new Vera Bradley tote!

At 11:47 AM, Blogger tacomom said...

I have checked this blog faithfully for several days in a row and no new post. The sneezausea must REALLY be getting to you. My sympathies as I got sicker with each pregnancy. Hope you feel better fast!! At least you know it won't last any more than 9 months. (yeah, just call me a Job's comforter...and you don't even know me! lol!)

Congratulations! How exciting. I'm so happy for your family.
