Baby Snow

December 30, 2014

Dear Blog,
I have not updated in a long time. Now it's the perfect time to start writing again. We found out we were expecting on Tuesday November 18th. I was already more than four weeks along and I didn't think I was pregnant. My only symptom was that my chest was hurting and felt sore a lot. I had a fake two day "period" so that's why I waited so long to take a test.   Jacob bought the clear blue tests. The first one I messed up by not laying it down flat right after I took it. So I
a question mark came up. The second one I was extra careful with it. I waited those three long minutes by myself in the bathroom. I even prayed for comfort. Then I looked at it...PREGNANT!!!! I cried so hard by myself. I couldn't believe there was a little miracle growing inside of me!
Then I had to stop crying and clean my face off. I went to our bedroom and told Jacob it was a negative. I had to make up a cute way to tell him. I could tell I was a bad lier and Jake didn't really believe me. So I ran to our attic and opened our baby box. I got the baby girl dress and sock shoes out and the boy mustache onesie out. I found a gift bag and a blank card & envelope. I wrote..."Daddy I can't wait to meet you and I will love you so much! I will give you lots of kisses in August 2015. Xoxo" Then I put the test on the bottom of the bag. Then I ran downstairs and I went to our bedroom. I told him I had a present for him. His eyes were all waterly. He knew it already. He read our card and got the presents out. Then he hugged mommy so much!
We are so blessed and excited for our little miracle. We have already seen our baby twice by ultrasound. Seeing the heartbeat for the first time at six weeks was amazing and a relief. It was so clear and strong. The tech said it was a very heathly heartbeat too. I did have to be on bed rest for two weeks and that's why ultrasounds are such a relief. Now I have to take it easy, not stand for too long, no exercise, and etc. It will be worth it in the end.
I also got "morning sickness" (it's an all day thing) at week 6. I lost four pounds last time I went to the doctor's and I now I am underweight. I have to now eat every two hours! I can do it!
Now I am officially 10 weeks and five days! It has been so fun announcing our pregnancy on Christmas eve to my parents and Christmas for the rest of the family and friends!
We love our little sweet pea so much!
PS: I think it's a girl.

10 week bump!

All I crave is citrus for example oranges, cuties, grapefruit, and lemon!
