Then, despite originally wanting to wait until July, when the family were settled back into American life, Amber announced on her April 2, 2012 vlog that she was pregnant. Sharing how she broke the news to her husband, Amber revealed that they had gone to a local steakhouse. As Kyle reeled off all the celebrations they had held there, then, she added a third child to the list.
“According to Baby Center I am due around December 3,” the part-time doula and amateur photographer added on her vlog. “This is really cute. Since it will be our last baby it’ll be like our little Christmas surprise. And we’re not going to find out the sex of this baby so it really will be a surprise.”
A month after the vlog announcement of her pregnancy, however, Amber ran into problems. Specifically, she started bleeding every day – and, worried about a miscarriage, she went to the hospital. But a scan revealed that everything was fine and that the baby had a strong and healthy heartbeat. As a result, Amber relaxed into her third pregnancy.
And while Amber first showed signs of labor on December 20, with this being her third child she knew that nothing would happen for a while. So she took her son to his end-of-the-year Christmas party and went about her day more or less as normal. With the contractions growing more intense the next morning, however, Amber called the midwife to prepare for her planned birth at home.
