Yup,we have a bun in the oven. :) We placed the below pic out at Geoff's party. It was so funny watching people's reactions as it clicked at what they were looking at. We were surpised at how many people had not heard of the expression "there's a bun in the oven." We took that pic the night before the party at 9-10pm at night. We'd been out all day with my parents and I was running on 5-6 hours of sleep. I was so sick of getting that party together, I didn't really feel like caring anymore, and Geoff didn't have the patience to try again for the 15th time. Hopefully future ones will look better!
Here are the FAQs that we have gotten so far.
When are you due? November 19th - the week of Thanksgiving. I'm 14 weeks along, just into the 2nd trimester.
Are you finding out the sex? That's up in the air right now. We have until around the 4th of July to decide. Personally, I adamantly do NOT want to know - I love to be surprised. Geoff, on the other hand, desperately wants to know. I came up with a little compromise. Maybe we could have the ultrasound tech write it down & place it in an envelope. I'll hide it in our house, and if he finds it, then we'll know. If not, then we'll be surprised. You can bet I will be hiding that envelope once every couple days. :)
Are you excited? Ummm. . . I'm getting there. Yes, this was planned. Last fall, when we first were trying to conceive, I became pregnant. We were extremely excited. I had the morning/all-day sickness, and things seemed to be progessing. At the first dr.'s appointment, they always do an ultrasound to make sure everything is healthy. The dr. informed us that our pregnancy wasn't healthy, and that my body hadn't realized that I had miscarried weeks before. The shock of that took over. We had to go to the hospital to have a D & E done, and deal with all the emotions on top of getting through the Christmas season.
Since the dr. gave a us a go-ahead, we decided to try again. So many thoughts about whether we would be able to have a family or not filled my head.
But, the Lord blessed, and allowed us to get pregnant again quickly. The first appointment, boy was I a nervous wreck, but we only heard good news, and saw our little bean. The second appointment went smoothly, and we got to hear the heartbeat again. Praise the Lord! So, now that the 2nd trimester has come, Geoff & I are allowing ourselves to be joyful and less reserved.
Any symptoms/cravings? Yup. Morning sickness-mostly nausea until the magic time of 12:00 pm. That's slowly fading away now. The Big C - gotta love Colace!
Cravings - Doritos, Turkey subs from Subway, and vanilla milkshakes. Yum, yum! (well, for now) Aversions - chocolate & sweets (extremely strange for me!)
