Sharing some *BIG* news!!!!


I have been keeping a secret for quite a while now, not only from you all, but from everybody! It is true...I am expecting! We are all so excited. My kids have been so good not to spill the beans to ANYONE! I finally had my first appointment yesterday where I got to see my sweet little one kicking and squirming (the photo got a tad bent in my purse) and to hear the hearbeat for the first time. Let me tell you I have been on pins and needles waiting so long for my appointment. My OB/GYN was out of town and this was as soon as they could get me in. It has been torture! It was such a relief to finally see him/her for the first time. I have taken like 10 tests just to be sure. We are all over-the-moon excited.
Needless to say, it hasn't been easy taking care of a baby and being sick, tired and all the other fun stuff that comes along with early pregnancy. I also got a really big calling at church a couple of weeks ago. I am still trying to get that under control, plus all of the other things that I have to do. I am sure you are all having one of those A-ha moments right now. It is probably all clicking into place as to why I haven't been around much. It has been REALLY hard...I am not going to lie. I am counting down the days to when the sickness, nausea, tiredness all goes away. I start my second Trimester on Tuesday and that is when most people begin to perk up. With Rowan it took me until about 16 weeks to feel normal again. Wish me luck that it will be sooner! I will keep you posted with any and all baby news. I am hoping that we may be able to find out what we are having by my next appointment, but that is just wishful thinking.
Thanks to all of you who stick by even when I disappear! Thanks for fluttering by!

Congratulations! Have you tried Sea Bands for the morning sickness? They are available at your local drug store or big box store (Target) and not a health issue just little wrist bands that you wear, they are sold for sea sickness but also work well for morning sickness. Best wishes for a healthy wee one!
