I've been DYING to post this on here but had to make sure we got all our family and friends informed beforehand...Matt and I are having a baby!!! Well, I'm pretty sure I'll be the one to actually have it but you know what I mean. We are over the moon excited and are loving every part of this journey so far...it's been a long time in the making!! Here are the answers to some FAQ's:
How far along am I? How am I feeling?
I'm 12 weeks and feeling great. I haven't been sick at all and I've just mainly felt tired a lot.
Are we finding out what we're having?
YES and it cannot come soon enough. We get to find out at our 18 week appointment and I am super pumped about it.
Have you thought about names?
Absolutely! We'll definitely use a family name and we're not keeping the name a secret. As soon as we know, you'll know!
How does Matt feel about everything?
He's so sweet about it all. He has faithfully been reading his father-to-be books and has been very attentive to my needs.
What about Buford?
He knows nothing...yet. I fear that his reign as king may soon come to an end. I'm sure he'll still sleep in the bed, get on the furniture, and get plenty of attention from us!
Am I craving anything?
Yes...anything chocolate and ANY carb. Lovely, right? I'm also liking apples with peanut butter, cereal, and pretzels. Sorry Mom, I haven't been eating my leafy greens like you told me to.
Now, get this: two of my best friends from home are also pregnant. Sarah is due one week after me and Molly is due two weeks after me! Congrats to the both of them too! It has been WONDERFUL having them as a mini support group. It's so fun to be going through this with some of my best friends!
And finally...I've already started getting some things together for the nursery. I know, it's early but I found this dresser for CHEAP and couldn't pass it up. We'll put glass knobs on it and use it as the changing table.
Also, this is the bassinet that we'll use. It is a family heirloom and has been used by many a baby in Matt's family. I think Buford thinks it's his...he would not get out of the way when I was trying to take this picture! Now that I look at it, he looks kind of sad doesn't he? It's so fun having baby stuff in the house already!!
