Yes! I’ve been keeping a BIG secret for 16 weeks. Well, still really tiny right now.

4. F-O-U-R. Quatro. Quatre.

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious Pregnant with #4

This is from 12 weeks.

13 week ultrasound

And, because there are a million questions floating through your head, Mr. Serious composed a Q & A (that he sent out to coworkers). 

Q: Were you trying to have another baby? Also phrased as “you know what causes this, right?”

A: Yes.

Q: Is it a boy or a girl?

A: Don’t know yet, but we’ll find out in the next month or so.

Q: Were you trying for a boy?

A: Not really, just a baby. See 1st Q&A.

Q: Is this your last baby? Also phrased as if “it’s a girl will you try again for a boy?”

A: Haven’t decided yet. << This is definitely HIS answer!

Q: Congratulations?

A: Thank you. You don’t have to say as a question, as my wife and I do see this as a celebratory event.

Added by me:

Q: But, we’ve seen you drinking at various social events around town.

A: I’m really good at discretely ordering a non-alcoholic drink or two. I even had you fooled, didn’t I?

Q: When does this baby arrive?

A: Estimated due date, December 31, 2013. Could make for an interesting New Year’s Eve drive.

Yes, we are all very excited and very nervous and a little crazy! But, couldn’t be happier. 

Now, pass me a pillow and some ginger ale! And excuse me while I unbutton my pants.

    1. Fortunately, nobody has asked me to my face…if they do, I might have a snarky reply!

  28. That is so awesome! Having four is busy but great. Although I have to warn you… the really stupid questions from total strangers start around #4. Congrats!

    1. We started getting them after the second girl, and then the third girl, so I can only imagine if this one is a girl!
