Oh baby!

I got one of these: Okay truth is I have a few of those..who really does only one?

And now we're having one of these....
(my niece Emma at my bridal shower)

It's safe to say that we are super super excited but equally shocked that I got pregnant SO fast especially since we just started trying the end of October. My SIL & best friend both said (unbeknownst to each other) that they felt like it would work out this way & I also felt that in my heart but never thought it would be this quick.

So while I'm still early on (only 6 weeks now,) I still wanted to share on the blog. Only one friend who is local reads the blog (and she now knows) & none of my family so it's safe. We are sharing our news with family & friends though but not doing the whole Facebook public service announcement until we are further along (another month or so.) So those of you who are my FB friend, I ask that you keep this news off there. Please & thank you :)

I am feeling good other than lack of sleep (wide awake in the middle of the night), sore boobs that seem to be getting worse by the day & nausea that kicked in last night with a vengeance!

My goal obviously is to keep active & eat well during this pregnancy but I'm by NO means going crazy. I've actually lost several pounds in the last week since I found out & have been eating more. Weight gain will happen & I'll welcome it knowing the end result is a happy little chubber!

All of this, of course, makes me really miss my Mom. I can imagine that she's super excited even though she's not with us. And something about it all makes me feel SO much closer to God. A child is a gift like no other from God. And I daily thank him for our little lentil!

Moving forward I suspect this will be a big ol' preggo blog but you know me so I'll ramble about other stuff too. So my apologies if the blabber of it all drives some away but I suspect you'll come back in September to catch a glimpse of Baby B ;)
