...and We're Expecting! (14 weeks)
The time has come to let the cat out of the bag. My little tummy is starting to show and I believe all of my close friends and family already know. So there it is. The REAL reason I haven't been feeling well or blogging or doing much of anything. I'm sure a lot of you already put two and two together but here it is officially. We are now three months along - due Nov 29th! At our appointment today we got to hear baby's heart beating loud and clear! I have been dying to hear that sound for... well, since the last time I heard it which was about a month ago. I just wish I could hear it everyday.
Conor has been great these last few months. Bringing me breakfast in bed, holding my hair back while I puke, packing me snacks when I leave the house so I don't get too hungry. Oh, did I forget to mention all of the grocery store runs, and the doing of dirty dishes and all of the preparing of meals that he did? How did I get so lucky to have someone so great? I seriously had NO IDEA how hard the first few months of pregnancy could be. I really thought it was going to be a walk in the park. I guess I have just never spent time with a pregnant person before because there were about a thousand things that I didn't even know were THINGS until now. Like how can you sleep soooo much and still feel soooo tired? HOW? And how can you be so happy and then all of the sudden start crying your eyes out like there is no tomorrow? HOW? Luckily, I feel like those days are slowly fading away. I'm still a bit tired but not all that sick. And my appetite is back. And I can stand looking at a computer screen again. And I am just so freaking excited to hold this little baby in my arms that I just can't sit still anymore! So.. I'm off.
PS I can't wait to see a lot of YOU (my dear friends and family) in about a week and a half! We are counting down the seconds!
