We’re having a Baby!
DC and I found out on October 29th after taking a home pregnancy test that there is a bun in my oven and we are more than a little excited … sometimes it’s absolutely frightening!
We had only just decided that we would start “trying” … I was hoping that the start would be some time in January once I was settled into my new job and fully moved to New Hampshire, but someone had other plans for us
On November 21st we had our first ultrasound and got a really good glimpse at our little “pickle” growing inside me. You can just make out his/her little T-rex arms and stubby legs in the photo.
I was not prepared for the amazement that the ultrasound held. Seeing the heartbeat. Watching Pickle’s little arms moving about. Totally incredible.
We’re anticipating an early July birthday for our little one. Doc says around July 6th or 7th, but I am more hopeful that it will be July 3rd, which was my Grandfather’s Birthday.
So far everything seems to be going well. I have some major food aversions and morning-noon-night sickness. I even had to purchase maternity jeans because I have been so completely bloated!
Our families have all been informed as well as our closest friends and facebook, but I still have to announce to my boss and co-workers. I’m a little nervous telling my boss since I literally JUST started my new position and I haven’t even received any clients yet. I’m pretty sure it will all be fine, I just hope she doesn’t think I will let this impact my performance, because now more than ever I want to do a really great job and be the best I can be.
So much change for me this year. It’s hard to think back to where I was just months ago before I met DC, living & loving my single life and now … I’m going to be a MOM! SO WEIRD!!! LOL
Now, let’s see how long I can avoid becoming a “mommy blogger”
