If you haven't already guessed.... I've got a bun in the oven!!! I'm not very good at keeping secrets, hence me telling the world way too early...I'm only about 8 weeks along and have yet to hear a heart beat, or go to the Dr. but we're super excited about our news! We've decided to wait to find out the sex until the baby is born. There are very few surprises left in life, and this one will be an amazing surprise to learn. I already feel like I'm "showing..." but that's fine by me. I've been craving buffalo wing sauce like crazy (I could literally drink it from a cup with out the wing, just the sauce!) I've been falling asleep at 7pm and dry heaving my ass off all day long. The other day I was on the computer during Conrad's nap and I could hardly make it to the kitchen, my lunch was on it's way up, so I threw up in the laundry basket! I also had an episode at Trader Joe's as I was walking out the door. I smelled cigarette smoke, which made me start gagging, my mother in law who works there saw me cupping one hand under my mouth and holding the cart with the other hand trying not to let go of Conrad, and she sent over a worker to assist me. He grabbed the cart and I found a corner to barf in. How humiliating. I apologized because this poor teenage kid had to clean it up. IF THAT'S NOT BIRTH CONTROL I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS! (My mother in law bought him lunch to make up for it.) So I've been really sick, but it's a good sign. I'm still running on a fairly regular basis. I ran 12 miles total last week. I'm REALLY trying not to gain as much weight with this baby as I did with Conrad. It's so hard though because food helps me when I'm nauseous. Cereal in the middle of the night has been my favorite. I wake up sick as a dog and if I eat cereal, it makes me feel better. I really want to "enjoy" this pregnancy more though. I'm working on trying to stay motivated and give Conrad all of my love even when I'm tired and feel sick. Anyway.
We're overjoyed and so excited about this pregnancy. New year, new baby!
What a sweet blessing to receive. This new year is going to be such a great one.
I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us
as our family grows.
