Baby Boom!

First I want to thank you all for the sweet comments, FB messages, tweets, and emails. We have been so overwhelmed with the amount of love we are receiving from our family and friends. We are so thankful to have such wonderful people in our lives and the blog world has really opened up many doors for me. I've met so many incredible women, who I'm lucky to call my friends. So, thank you all for your support.

And let me be honest for a minute... Blog land has been a boom town recently! I actually started feeling a little guilty when everyone started to announce their pregnancy in the blog world {and many in my RL}.  The more people that announced the more excited I began to get because I would have people to relate to. But I also started feeling bad because I know there are so many women and families out there who are longing for a baby. It will happen.

Every evening I count my blessing. I know how lucky we are to be given this opportunity to be parents. We are so thankful to have this little baby {even though it still doesn't feel real at times} and we try not to take any day for granited.

We've had a lot of questions so I'll try to answer a few. Let me know if I missed yours!

1. When is your due date? My official due date is August 28th. I'm actually hoping to make it to September so I can go to the first week of school or so.

2. Are you going back to work? Yes. This may be a post in itself sometime, but yes I am.

3. How far along are you? I'm 12 weeks right now

4. How have you been feeling? Actually I've been doing really well. I was only sick two times which is amazing. I was really worried about morning sickness, especially because of my job. There were only a small handful of days where I truly was miserable and only about three of those were on a school day. I've been very tired over the last two weeks. I feel like I got a light mixture of both morning sickness and tiredness. But hey, I'll take it!

5. Are you finding out the gender? Yes. Yes. Yes. It can't come soon enough!

Overall I still am having a hard time getting it all to sink in. Even now that everyone knows, it is very strange. I hope it will all start to seem more real very soon. I also promise not to make this blog all about pregnancy and the baby. I do have Bumpdate posts I want publish for my personal blog journey. I'll probably post the first few on the weekends not to bore you all! But I do have some funny stories to share with you (did you see the one about my Wembley meltdown?).

Thank you again for all of the wonderful comments. We appreciate them so much!


  1. Totally missed this! CONGRATS!!!!

  2. Still so happy for you guys!!!

  3. So exciting! Glad that your first 12 weeks weren't too bad, I would never wish morning sickness on my worst enemy! My pregnancy didn't really start to sink in until I found out the sex, I think it just took that long to really feel real to me.

  4. Baby boom is right! I had four announcements yesterday and another one today! I'm starting to feel like the only girl in town with an empty uterus! Though that could be the baby fever talking!! ;)

    Glad the first trimester has treated you well!

  5. Congrats again! I agree about the baby boom, I feel like I find a new pregnancy announcement every day!

    Are you going to find out the gender early? We went to Ultrasona (in the Polaris area) and found out at 14 weeks!!
