The Past Six Weeks

As you might imagine, after yesterday's announcement I've been trying to read and respond to as many "congratulations" emails as I can. I just love how much every single baby is so loved before anyone even knows his or her name. You mention the word "pregnancy" or "expecting" and people can't help but be spilling over with excitement.

I hope this news also explains why I haven't been the best blogger in the past month or so. My time has been consumed with naps and trying to keep myself still on the couch until the morning (all day) yuckiness has subsided. So far no vomiting but so far no desire for food or the smell of food either. Unless that food is a fruit. Then I'll take as much as you can give me thank you very much.

It was hard trying to blog about my life when most of my life, lately, was so much about this new little life. But I'm of the group that tries to wait until I hear that teeny tiny heartbeat at the end of the first trimester before I can share the news with the rest of the public. So that's where we were Monday morning and why I posted the news that afternoon.

I've been getting quite a few questions wondering if I was pregnant at my sister's wedding. The answer is yes I was pregnant but it was too early for me to know yet. Of course I had a hunch so I kept the wine and champagne to a minimum but I have to admit that the timing was rather genius. I was still able to have a good time but I didn't have to wait another whole month for something we've really been praying and hoping for.

The other question I've been getting is when I am due. I've come to not like this question very much. When I was pregnant with William I would quickly respond, "December tenth!" to anyone who wondered. William's birthday ended up being November 21 so I've learned my lesson that babies come on their own schedule not yours or your doctor's.

Technically speaking my OB chart says my due date is April 27. But because an early delivery the first time around can make that chance even greater with subsequent pregnancies I've been responding to those questions by saying "mid April" or "right around Easter." Of course now that I'm saying that this baby probably won't come until May. But for those of you who like more exactness you can always take a gander at the handy dandy gadget on the right side of my blog. It will tell you exactly, technically speaking of course, where I am in my pregnancy and how much I've got left.

Thank you so much to everyone for your emails, thoughts and prayers. They mean so much to us. And now that the secret's out, hopefully you'll be hearing from me a lot more often. Even if it is only to complain about how I haven't been able to get off the couch all morning.

  1. April 27 is a lucky day Jenny :) I'll pray that this little one decides to keep cooking! (Isabelle & Blake's birthday are both the 27th) Congratulations.
