Careful blog followers may have already figured this out, but I figured it was about time to break the news (after having already notified friends and family...) we are expecting!
Reactions have varied. Most people are extremely happy and excited for us. Dave, of course, had already figured it out, and yet another friend actually rushed me off the phone before I had the chance to tell them. Boy, nothing kills the excitement like that, huh? All in all things have been going well, though I have managed to experience every pregnancy symptom in the book. I've got morning sickness (otherwise known as any time you're awake sickness), nosebleeds, general tiredness and malaise and on Sunday I was sidelined by a migraine. No terribly exotic food cravings yet, though I will say that food commercials on television are having an unusual amount of sway in my mind.
Not to mention, there's the whole "emotional" thing going on. I made the mistake of watching The Lake House with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock and even though I had already read the spoiler and knew how it ended (and more specifically, I knew that Keanu doesn't die and they do end up together) I still bawled terribly. One night on the way home, Dean Martin music made me get bleary-eyed. Anyone who was at my wedding knows that I have a tendency to blubber easily, but this is just getting ridiculous.
Anyhoo, you may notice a few posts that seem out of order-- I'm going to start putting up some of the posts that I have written over the past few weeks that I hadn't yet made available to the general, unknowing public.
Be aware, we will be finding out if we're having a boy or a girl-- I'll have that info probably next month.
Love and Kisses,
