All the details

So by now everyone's probably seen our big news we announced earlier today. :) Let me just say, we are just overwhelmed with all the prayers, blessings, and congrats we've recieved. We are so blessed to have such a great family and friends surrounding us right now. We are thankful for each of you.

Since everyone has been asking (well not everyone, but a lot of you), here are some of the important details.

How far along are you? I am 8 weeks and 3 days today. The baby is measuring at 8 weeks 4 days, so we are both right where we should be.

When did we find out? We've known for about 3 weeks now. We told are family, who were so excited some didn't even believe us. I always wanted to do something special to let Randy & our families know, but we were so excited that we just called to let them know. The hard part was keeping it a secret for the past 3 weeks.

We had our first doctor's appointment today and all is good. My due date is May 14th, which I hear a certain little girl in OK is especially excited about.

I haven't been that sick, so far. Nausea and fatigue have been my main challenges. Thankfully, the nausea hasn't been enough to keep me down or away from work. I'm learning more and more how to keep it at bay.

Am I showing yet? Not really. I feel like it. My dress pants no longer fit, but my jeans still do. It is more like I had too much to eat than an actual baby bump.

I think that's all. If I forgot something, just let me know.

Oh and a HUGE shout out to Brooke, my inspiration for our announcement post. She just announced her pregnancy a few weeks ago with the same rhyme and I just loved it! Thanks Brooke for letting me use it!

Guess what????
