Some more details...

So I know at least Paige wants more details about the baby, so I decided to divulge.

I'm 3 months along-exactly 12 weeks and 2 days-. I found out we were pregnant the end of Februaryish and had the way I was going to tell Cody all planned out.. I had bought a little unisex onesie way earlier and had wrapped it and hid it in my dresser so he wouldn't find it. The day I had decided to take a test I woke up at like 5 am and couldn't go back to sleep because I was too excited! So I laid in bed until 6:30 and finally got up and took one and was so excited it was positive!! Only bad news...It was 6:30 am on a Saturday morning! Cody wasn't going to wake up for like 4 hours! So finally he woke up and I gave him his present. I told him it was an old birthday present that I had hid and forgotten about--which I"ve done before so it wasn't anything new. He opened it and had the most blank look on his face ever. He just looked at me...so confused! So I told him-That wasn't an old birthday present, we're having a baby!!!

Hooray.

So we're both very excited and can't wait until October 26 when our baby is due. (I'm really hoping the dr's will be like-Um..you're actually a month farther along than we thought!) (I know that probably will not happen...Like the chances are -5% of that happening...but I can hope)

Everything has been looking awesome so far and we hope it keeps looking awesome. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.




Those are from when I was only 7 1/2 weeks, so that's why our baby looks more like a....peanut or gummy bear. Depending on which picture you're looking at. Also, in the 1st there is the yolk sac..which has thankfully gone away now because Cody hates that word. Or..those two words put together. By now our baby should (and I'm assumming does) look like an actual baby.

I've been really, really sick..Luckily the dr gave me morning sickness medicine and that's been working wonders. Well, it did for about 3 weeks and then the sickness came back and hasn't quite gone away fully yet. Hopefully by next week I won't have to take any more medicine and it'll just be done. It was so awful to be throwing up all the time! I had to run out of my classes to get to the bathroom in time and once I even threw up in the hallway walking to one of my classes. It was awful. Today I threw up just thinking about having to go to the dentist on Thursday. Weird, eh? And once looking at a girls unbrushed hair made it happen. Yeah, I don't know what's wrong with me.

But we're so happy and excited and can't wait to have a baby! We'll for sure post more when more happens and I can't wait for June when we get to find out what we're having! We have names picked out..but will save those for later :)

Hooray for babies!

I love all the details! You're so funny! Who knew a girls unbrushed hair could make someone throw up... if only she knew, maybe she would have brushed her hair! lol.
Can't wait to hear the names you have picked out!
October babies are the best. Our first two babies were due in Oct (16th and 23rd... though the 2nd one was born in sept. little stinker). I loved being due in October! ;0)

Yeah! I love all the details too! I'm so sorry you've been so sick... I wish I could make it up to you somehow (and April too for all she went through) for bringing me so much happiness! I love you and that little gummy bear! I think it's a little chocolate covered cinnamon bear! :)

You're little "peanut" is so cute. :)

Laura posted an ultrasound on her blog yesterday also. She's due in June (mid-month). She didn't get over the morning sickness until she was four months along. I hope you'll be done with it before then. It's the pits, but the reward is worth it! Congrats.

Congratulations again! Thanks for the details, I am sorry that you're sick though. That's a bummer & will make it hard when you have a 2 or 3 year old running around & are pregnant with your next. Ugh. But yes, the reward is very worth it. I would love to have an October baby, but I am glad to be 5 1/2 months right now. :) We wanted an April baby, but that's life. Maybe someday. Thanks for the pictures & all the juicy details! Love ya!

Congrats congrats! You will be such a great mommy! Oct 26 is a GREAT day to be due. (It was my due date with Chandler) You will be so cute with a baby belly. Congrats again to you and Cody!

April said...

I hope you feel better soon! I never really had morning sickness but I can imagine that it is no fun at all - I hate throwing up!

the milners said...

I have so been out of the loop!!! Sorry you've been so sick...is that why you never VT me last month?! I'm just teasing! My apartment was so messy you would have probably thrown up!

Anyway, congratulations! I'm so excited for you!
