How many arrows are in a quiver anyway???

Does your quiver look like this...
Or like this???

I've been asking myself this question a lot lately. One has to when there is a supply of pregnancy tests under the bathroom sink...and when you have to keep using them!! I have yet to experience the disappointment/relief of NOT seeing that second line on the stick!
THE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Our 3rd little one will be here the end of September.
Why, you ask, do we wait to spill the beans until I am 18 weeks along. Well, the answer is that I had to wait until I stopped breaking into hysterics when I talked about "the beans". Don't get me wrong, we love babies and want lots, but we were hoping to give ourselves some time between the little bundles. Well, now I'm thinking we might as well keep going at this rate and have as many as we can before I turn thirty - that's just the shock talking.

When I read the title of your post in Google Reader, I hurried to click on your blog so I could see if you were pregnant or maybe even having twins. Wow -- I can't believe you were able to keep it a secret until 18 weeks! I take it you didn't have morning sickness this time either or if you did that you were a really good faker through all that. Congratulations on your little arrow.

Post a picture of yourself once you start showing. :-)

LOL!! If it makes you feel any better, my little ones will be less than 15 months apart!! Jackson turns 1 in 2 weeks and then 3 more months until the next one arrives!!

Congratulations, Ben and Carissa! I am very happy for you! And don't worry, Carissa, I remember being the same way when we found out we were expecting Judah! I cried and cried and Jay ran down the road to tell his parents and even called my parents to tell them! All the while, I was crying! But now, I wouldn't change it for the world! Judah (and FJ both) bring much joy to my world!!! Again, Congrats!!

Congrats!!! Children are such a blessing from God, no matter when they come :-) Our first arrives in 8 weeks!

Yeah for you guys! I love your "beans" :) Congratulations! I'm looking forward to more children (Lord willing), but I keep telling myself "NOT until the whole house is cleaned all at once". If this is any consolation, I was encouraged when someone told me that going from 1 child to 2 children is much harder than going from 2 children to 3-- that's because you have already learned to divide your time. Then again, I just have 2, so I can't really say that I know what I'm talking about!

Congratulations!! I just found your blog and was excited to read about your little miracle!

Carissa, (in response to your comment on my blog) I understand about the breathing problem. I wore this skirt about a month ago, and it buttoned fine when I put it on. However, after I ate lunch with our host family, I could barely breathe. So, on Sundays, I've resorted to dresses (yeah, no waistband). Oh, and I wouldn't call myself brave for posting the picture -- I'm not as paranoid this time around about looking pregnant early because "they" say it happens more quickly the second time. Yeah for an excuse.

Hello, Carissa!
Great post, we are expecting our 2nd, and I had similar feelings as well. I mean, if I continue to get pregnant once a year . . . oh dear, very full quiver in the future.
Congratulations though, I'm sure you will enjoy all of your kids.

I found your website randomly while looking for how many arrows a quiver holds but I'm dying to know where you found those pictures and if I can use them to announce my next pregnancy (just found out number 5 is coming)...can you email me?
