Hi friends! If we’re friends on Facebook (or in real life), you’ve probably already heard the news that Daniel and I are expecting our first baby!!!
Due Date: September 28th, 2012
How far along? 10.7 weeks (I’ll be 11 weeks on Friday!)
Was it planned? Well, GOD certainly had a plan, and let’s just say His plan is a little different from our plan (isn’t it always!) So no, we weren’t planning on growing our family for another few years, but we’re excited that God went ahead and said “Now is the time!”
How have you been feeling? Pretty good! I wrote recaps of each week after we knew we were pregnant, but I think I’ll just consolidate them into one big “First Trimester” post. I do plan on posting weekly updates though when we get into the second (and third) trimesters! I had about 2 weeks of all day nausea (morning sickness does NOT explain what it really feels like). Thankfully, the nausea (and accompanying food aversions) has greatly subsided! Our dear friends Ashley and David welcomed their little baby girl into the world in December, and Ashley was sick the entire pregnancy, so I feel very thankful that I’ve just had a little bit of that feeling! I’ve had a bit of fatigue from weeks 8-now, but a quick 20 min nap usually helps, and my new bedtime is somewhere between 8:30-9pm. (I went to bed at 8:15 the other night- GLORIOUS SLEEP!) I’m also getting up 2-3 times per night to use the bathroom (my kidneys are supposed to be functioning at a very high level- I believe it!) I feel like this past week, I’ve finally felt more like myself! Let’s hope this trend continues for a little while!
Boy or Girl? It’s too early to tell, but I’m kind of thinking BOY (because of all of the salty foods that sound good- sweet things (like fruit) just don’t sound good!) I really don’t know how people can “feel” that they’re having a certain gender- seems like a bunch of baloney to me!
