I’m so glad I don’t have to keep that big secret again! If you know me, you know I stink at secrets, which is why we decided to go ahead and tell everybody. That, and we wanted to rally the prayer warriors.
So here’s the lowdown:
Turns out we’re seven weeks along. I thought I was a week further (boo) but after our second ultrasound today, the doctor has decided to push my due date back a week to July 23. I wouldn’t mind so much, except that means I’m one week further from finishing this first trimester (boo again). The good news is that the baby looked great on the ultrasound and we got to see that precious little heart beat. I’m in love with that tiny little baby.
How we told our parents
We told both sets of families on Thanksgiving day, which also happened to be my birthday. Both families responded with delicious squeals and cheering and it was so much fun.
By the way, I hate food now
That’s right. Food and I are no longer friends. It’s amazing how a baby the size of a blueberry can make you so very sick. I’m currently surviving on crackers, chicken noodle soup, and spaghetti (random, but I eat spaghetti at least twice a day, every day). I’ve been on nausea meds for almost a week now, but they’re not working very well so we just upped the dose. Fingers crossed that this time it will work. Anybody have any other secrets for me?
I’d write more, but I’m worn out (seems to be a trend these days). I’ll see you all in January when I find all that energy I seem to have misplaced!
