A Big Annoucement

So, for a while now I have wanted to post this, but have been waiting on a number of things to do so. I couldn't wait any longer and so I am sharing with all of you ♥

So isn't this exciting? We found out when I was almost five weeks along back in May. It came as a complete shock at first. Like a really big shock.

Now that we are in the second trimester, everything is going better. The first trimester was horrible. I was nauseous non-stop all day and night. I was super exhausted and barely could even think or move.

However, even though these symptoms have gotten a bit better, I noticed since I hit the twelve week mark, I'm throwing up a lot. At least twice a day...mostly in the mornings. Hopefully that goes away soon.

So we are at 14.5 weeks now. See the little bump? Not much of one yet. I've lost one pound since I last weighed myself when I turned 14 weeks. The weight has been coming and going on and off.

My due date is set for January 17th. It's funny because that was the original date I set for our wedding but had to be pushed back one week because the venue was booked. Now I'm really hoping baby comes on that day.

We are not making any announcement of it on Facebook so if you are friends with me on my personal page, I ask that you not mention anything publicly. On my blog page, that's fine. We have decided to wait a while longer before saying anything on there.

My next appointment is the end of August. That will be my 20 week ultrasound as well. I have decided not to find out the sex of the baby again like I did last time. I am still up in the air with whether I want to completely wait and have it be a surprise in the delivery room with this one, or do another gender reveal party like we did before. That was a lot of fun. So I'm not sure yet. But I still have time to decide what I want to do.

So anyway, that is it. So you'll have to hear again about my pregnancy updates and complaints about being a hot air balloon for the next few months (✿◠‿◠)
