A Big Announcement

Well, I'm sharing the big news. I'm pregnant! I'm about 8 weeks now. We are all very excited and anxiously awaiting the new arrival. My due date is March 26th. It seems like the wait is FAR too long. It has been such a long time since we have had a new little one and I am just beyond myself with excitement. :)

I went to my midwife on Monday and she had my lab results. My progesterone levels were borderline. She said normally she wouldn't be concerned but since I lost the last one so late she wanted me to take some. She said it would make me feel awful. I have a friend who was on it with one of her pregnancies and she said it wasn't bad. Well, I have been on it for about 3 days now and I have noticed that I am a little bit more exhausted. That's quite a statement because I was already VERY tired! But the major difference I have noticed is that I cry...A LOT. About everything. It's absurd. I have never been an emotional pregnant woman....until now. Honestly it's kind of fun. I will be sobbing and shaking my head in bewilderment wondering why on Earth I can't control myself. But whatever. If it will possibly help my baby then let's open the flood gates!

I also am having issues with just doing what I need to do, like cleaning. I don't want to, so I don't. I feel completely unable to pry myself off the couch. It's insane. That part is NOT fun. I miss my clean house. I miss doing fun stuff with my children. But it's only for one more month, and the payoff will be totally worth it. :)

Of course Heath is being incredible through all of this. I really can't believe it. Sometimes I think he is too good to be true. When I cry he makes it better. When I don't clean, he is understanding. When I want a nap he lets me take one. I really love him. I couldn't ask for a better husband.


  1. Yeah for babies!
    I've learned to just do what you need to, especially in those first few months of pregnancy. Need to cry? Cry. Need to sleep? Sleep. Need a Frappe from McDonalds? Get one.

    And I know what it's like to have a totally awesome, too-good-to-be-true husband. I couldn't imagine going through a pregnancy without him.


  2. Thanks Melynda! When is your due date?

  3. Beginning to mid February. Found a doc, just waiting on my records and an appointment. I'm like 15 weeks now - but that's just an educated guess.
