Am I Really Pregnant??

I am almost 7 weeks pregnant, and I still don't believe that I really am. My mom said it didn't ever hit her that she was pregnant until the fourth month. I am going to California a week from today, and my aunt does ultrasounds, so I will be able to see the baby for the first time at 8 weeks. Maybe that will make it more real, maybe it won't be until my belly starts getting huge.

This morning Chris was talking to his mom, and she said he was 9 pounds 10 ounces when he was born. I sure hope whatever your weight was as a baby doesn't reflect what your baby's weight will be, because if that's the case, I am much more worried for giving birth!!! I look at my 5 pound dog and can't even imagine that! Haha.

I already need to buy some new jeans, I can only button two pairs out of 6, and I have only gained one or two pounds. Luckily, a lot of my friends and family who have had babies are my size, so I may just be able to borrow some maternity clothes. That's the great thing about being one of the youngest in the family and in my church :)

I am hoping and praying that I can enjoy this pregnancy, I already know it is going to go by so fast, which is good, because I want my baby!, but from the stories I've heard, I'm sure I'll miss having my baby safe and warm in my belly and feeling it kick and swim around :)

There is so much more to come and this is just the beginning of many many new experiences, I am so excited and feel so blessed that we got pregnant so quickly!!!

It's Baby Time!

Chris and I just found out a week ago that we are pregnant. It only took us two months of trying, I never imagined it would happen so quick!! I can't even explain how excited I am! So many of my family and friends are pregnant, I felt out of the loop until now!! My sister in law, cousin, and I will all give birth within 5 months of each other. That is so exciting to know that I have so many friends to get advice from and go through pregnancy with, and already have playmates for my unborn child! :)

I almost don't even believe that I'm pregnant, and probably won't until I see it on my first ultrasound (June 2 - 6 when I go to California, my aunt does ultrasounds). I know it will be teeny tiny and look more like an alien, but at least a cute one!

We told our parents about the pregnancy last night, I wanted to take another test and double check before I got anyone excited. I put the two pregnancy tests in a ziplock bag at the bottom of a gift bag, and put another gift for my parents on top of it. Just something un-baby related. I told them it was an early Father's Day gift and a late Mother's Day gift. Niether of them had any idea that it was going to be another grandbaby!! They will have 3 grandbabies come January, before my mom is even 45! I am going to have so much fun planning baby stuff and spending time with my mom throughout this pregnancy. It's an excuse to go shopping and to yard sales :)

I am already getting stomach pains that are waking me up at 2 am, I didn't think any symptoms started this early! I usually eat eggs for breakfast every morning, but the last couple days I don't even want to look at eggs or smell them! I am interested and excited at what is to come in the next few weeks. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow! :)

The retired pastor that taught at my church when I first started going there, who also did our wedding, didn't even know we were trying to get pregnant, and about three weeks ago he told me he had a dream that I came up to him and told him I was pregnant. So yesterday when we started telling our friends, I told one of my best friends Brianna, who is his granddaughter, to also tell him that I really am pregnant. He told her that on Sunday at church, just a few days ago, that he was looking at me and just had a feeling that I was pregnant. How cool is that?? But now I am going to be asking him a lot more often what he is dreaming about.... :)

I will try to post a picture soon, I already have a belly! (which isnt baby, I hear its bloating...) My "what to expect when you're expecting" book is telling me to take a good look at my waistline now, because in a few weeks I wont be seeing it again for quite some time!!
