Sometime around April 20, 2011, there will be a little Hey Baby.
(Doesn’t that look like a gummy bear? Nomnomnom…)
I’m now out of my first trimester. It’s been so hard to keep it a secret for so long! Perhaps that’s why you haven’t seen many posts lately…I knew I couldn’t keep my mouth shut! 😉
Everyone seems to have the same questions, so here’s some answers…
Will you find out the gender? Yes! My husband would rather not, but I don’t think I want to do that the first time around. I’m working two jobs and would rather be as prepared as possible. Perhaps if I didn’t have as much on my plate I could be more carefree about it.
Have you had any morning sickness? Nothing I can complain about. 🙁 I’ve had a little, but I never did throw up. Mostly I just had food aversions. For about a month or 6 weeks I only wanted donuts and ice cream. I fought that as best I could, I swear!
Is your family excited? Yes! I’m so so lucky to have an awesome mother-in-law who probably couldn’t be more excited if it was her own child. And before you look at me sideways about the whole MIL thing, let me tell you that she’s got the best boundaries of anyone I know. In the two years Dave and I have been married, she never once asked if and when we’d try to get pregnant. I even told someone else, right in front of her, that we were trying, and she never asked about it. My dad’s pretty stoked since this will be his first grandchild! I know my grandmother is happy because the last time I mentioned we’d be trying for kids soon, she said, Well, you better hurry up! (she’s 93, and I want her to see her first great grandchild, but realistically she was saying to hurry since she might not be around much longer. LOL)
Have you started talking about names? Yes, but the problem is we’ve got good ideas for girls names but no ideas for boys names. 🙁 It’s really important to me to give a nod to relatives who’ve come before us. My grandmother’s name is Verna, her husband’s name was Vernon…see the dilemma? 😉
If you have more questions, ask away and I’ll answer them all! Not sure if I’ll answer them in the comments or by modifying the post…will have to think on that.
Oh, and before I go, I want to mention some other bloggers who I consider friends (or consider myself to be their blog stalker) who are pregnant as well:
- Liz from Mabel’s House
- Wendy from Musings of a Bookish Kitty
- Tanya from mamatots (I met Tanya on a forum for women due during April 2011, and we’ve got so much in common that I took an instant liking to her!)
- Nicole at Making it Lovely (she’s not really my friend, but I like her blog)
- And some other people who I’m not sure want to be called out. If this is you, let me know and I’ll add you in!
