It was September 2010 when my husband and I started trying for our third child. We have 2 older children, both boys, and wanted a girl.
On October 1st, 2010 we found out we were pregnant. We were so excited. We found out we were having a boy! Three boys… oh my what a mad house we were going to have! We had a name picked out for him in a couple of hours, Dylon Ward.

Mom to Nicholas John

Oakhurst, California

My husband and I found out we were expecting our fourth child in February of 2010. I was very scared about having another child as my hands were pretty full with our other children. Bradley was 7, Emily was 5 & Wesley was 2. I was excited to be giving my other children a new sibling and I was even more excited that my oldest two would know a little more about what was happening to my body.I knew they would be super excited to welcome a new baby to our home! I couldn’t wait and told everyone I knew as soon as I took the test!

My pregnancy was a terrible experience. I was sick my whole pregnancy and my body constantly ached. A lot more pain and discomfort than I’d experienced with my previous pregnancies. I couldn’t wait to have this baby and have my normal body (without the discomfort) back. Early in pregnancy I was told that the baby was small according to my dates and my doctor wanted to run some tests to make sure everything was okay. Everything checked out fine. My due date was October 28th, 2010 and it couldn’t come fast enough!
