Just Kidding?

This last week has been fun sharing our news with our families and some of our friends. But it still feels like we're just pretending. It sure doesn't seem real yet. Maybe a few months after the baby is born it will finally sink in?

A few times now Paul has put his hands on my stomach and tried to feel something. He also has put his ear to my stomach to try to hear something. Nothing to see or feel yet. I am looking forward to when he CAN see and feel something.

And the last piece of important news....Cheerios are my new best friend.

Merry Christmas!

Yesterday was Christmas Day! Paul and I went over to my parents house and gave them this Christmas ornament. It took them a minute to notice the key point of the ornament...the pregnant lady! Finally they saw it and were very happy for us.

My sister Jo and niece Lori came over and we showed them the ornament. They both looked at it and together said, "Uh-oh!" Lori is very excited to have a cousin that lives in the same state as her. All of her other cousins live across the country so she doesn't see them very often.

Then we all went over to my Grandma and Aunt's house where we were able to share the news with my Grandma, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, and Brother-in-law. Of course we had good food and presents too!

I am so thankful for my family. I am thankful that they are so excited for us and that they will always be there to help us when we need it. I love you guys!

Christmas Eve

Today I finished working 9 days in a row at Macy's. It was horrible. I have been so exhausted, and my feet hurt so bad. But it's finally over and I have a few days off before I work 3 more days next week.

Tonight we had fun spending time with Paul's grandparents, aunt & uncle, and cousins. They were happy to hear our news. We also called Paul's parents who live in Moses Lake and Paul broke the news to his Dad that he is going to be a Grandpa. Paul actually had told his mom the news last week when he called her to wish her a happy birthday. They are both very happy for us.

Tomorrow we tell my family!

7 Weeks

Today I am 7 weeks pregnant. And I am going to be working almost everyday for the next 2 weeks before Christmas.

Christmas is coming soon and I am both excited and scared to start telling everyone. It still kinda feels like we are just pretending to be pregnant.

I have started feeling nauseous the last few days, mostly just if I haven't eaten for a couple of hours. I feel a lot more sick in the evenings than in the mornings.

It's December

Today is December first. We are planning to tell our families our news at Christmas, if we can wait that long. I will be 9 weeks along by then.

My cold is finally starting to get better, though I'm still tired.

Yesterday I went to a Pregnancy Clinic and they gave me another pregnancy test. They gave me a lot of helpful information and resources. After that I stopped at Value Village and bought a pair of maternity jeans for $3! I don't need them yet, but it was fun to get something. I also got some prenatal vitamins today.

Every Tuesday morning I work in the nursery at church for 3 hours during MOPS, which is a program for mom's with small kids. This morning it was so strange to hold little babies and try to imagine what holding my own baby will be like.

Tonight Paul and I went to Walmart to walk around for something to do. While we were there he suggested going over to look at all the baby gear to start thinking about what we will need. After that we decided to go out for dinner since we haven't for quite awhile and I may start feeling too sick to be able to enjoy food any day now. We had a nice evening together.
