I meant to update more often, but I’m already 24 weeks’ pregnant and haven’t announced it on the blog! Oops. So, here is the first half:
July 26, 2013
I brought a lot of pregnancy tests to our family reunion in Oregon.
And used them all.
And then bought some more while there.
And so, in a house of 38 people, 24 of them kids, during a busy reunion, Nate and I found out we were expecting a little one ourselves.
Nate was instantly elated. I was instantly terrified.
And dubious. And confused – I remember thinking, “HOW DID THIS HAPPEN!?”
(Even though it was planned. For all you curious folk.)
(and even though I know how it happened…)
(I just never thought it WOULD actually happen….)
ANYWAY, after a few hours (or maybe days…) I joined Nate on the happy train!
Four weeks. I’m pretty sure you can tell already….
(Now you can add; a huge belly, constant baby movement, photo, audio, and video evidence…and I’m still not entirely convinced. Hopefully when he gets here I’ll be a believer!)
7 weeks – heartbeat check! and first look at little baby.
Still not quite sure how this happened…. 😉
Weeks 8-12 I lost almost 10 pounds. It was all I could do to put food in my mouth!!
So I bought all my favorites.
And it still didn’t taste good! AHHH!
Since then, no complaints at all!
12 weeks. I felt really fat!
13 weeks. When I discovered the ultrasound at work, and realized I could look at my baby every shift! Yay!
End of first trimester!
Time to tell the fam:
Getting ready to announce to our families…14 weeks
And when we found out, IT’S A BOY!
(which, for unbelievers, it has been reconfirmed several times.)
16 weeks – no one at work knew still – thank goodness for scrubs!
17 weeks- starting to pop! First maternity shirt!
18 weeks – Happy Halloween from Super Fetus!
First tiny kicks felt.
19 weeks – harder to hide! (But still possible at work)
20 Weeks – people at work finding out slowly.
(By awkwardly staring, and internally wondering if I was gaining weight…)
Baby boy kicking a LOT!
21 Weeks – No more hiding! Definitely a baby in there!
And here is the little guy himself.
We are SO excited for our baby boy!!! His due date is April 4 – 4/4/14.
Which is awesome.
But we anticipate him coming a bit earlier than that.
More on that next time.
