It's REAL awkward to try to write a blog post after not writing anyyyyything for 3 1/2 months.
I guess the only good explanation for this hiatus is...
We're having a BABY!
It's true, and we are ecstatic. Brian left to go to Korea for a couple months and I started feeling real sick and then I realized I was kind of sleeping all day. I put two and two together, took a test, and that was that. We were pregnant.
We were definitely surprised and a little bit shocked at first, mostly since Brian was away and it didn't feel real quite yet. Now that he is back and we have let our secret out, we couldn't be more excited. We feel so grateful that the Lord would bless us with a sweet new life growing inside of me.
We've been so blessed to have gotten to see our baby and hear the little wooshing heartbeat twice already. Everything looks great, and I am a little over 13 weeks along right now. I mostly look like I have just finished eating a large hamburger, which at most times is truth. I have been craving hamburgers and watermelon and indian food like it's my job. The nausea has subsided greatly, and I am feeling 100x better than the first 12 weeks, thankfully. My taste for coffee has completely disappeared, though, and I'm praying it comes back! Will it come back? I miss my warm mug in the mornings.
Brian has been the best caretaker and gets me snacks all day long. He always checks to see how many oz. of water I've finished and is constantly refilling my water bottle. Our midwife told him he must make sure I drink at least a gallon of water a day, and he is taking his job very seriously. And for this girl, who kind of hates water, a gallon a day is pure torture.
So, there is our fun news! Now that the cat is out of the bag, I plan to update this here blog much more frequently than say, every 3 1/2 months or so. Thanks for celebrating with us!
