Most of you know we’re pregnant. This will serve as the first official update since we’ve spread the news. So, may I direct your attention to the picture at the top of your screen.
This is “Junior.” Please do not get attached to the name. I promise it’s not going to stick! (More on that another day!) The image was created last week during our second ultrasound. Look closely and you can see the baby’s profile. Everything looked great, though I wouldn’t say the baby was cooperative! The good report was welcomed given that this tiny being is causing such a ruckus for Mommy, which in turn causes quite a ruckus for everyone else!
I’ve been SO, SO sick. Terrible nausea has been my constant companion nearly all day for most days the past few months. I have already determined that God graciously allowed me to forget the sometimes unpleasant details of my previous pregnancies. The first time I turned green-faced and raced to the bathroom, it all came flooding back. But I have to say that so far, I’m having fun. I marvel at the miracle taking place right under our noses. Sure, my blue jeans don’t fit (actually not much of anything is fitting), nothing tastes good, my nose is on overdrive, I’m exhausted, I’m sick, and I spend a good majority of the day in the bathroom, BUT it’s good.
It’s good and I’m grateful.
Here are a few tidbits of info:
First, the estimated due date is February 10. That means we are 13 weeks 3 days along. (Woo-hoo for the 2nd trimester.)
The next doctor’s appointment is August 30th. We do not know the gender yet. We do plan to find out. We may or may not tell. :)
