All knocked up...



I know it has been awhile and I believe me, I have missed all of you.
I have signed on many times and had to walk away after only getting though a blog or two to head back to the place that I have come to know very well in the last 5 weeks... the bathroom.
So yes, as of today I'm 12 weeks pregnant and no I wasn't one of those people that wanted to wait before telling, it is actually the first time that sitting in the computer hasn't made me ill.
I need to first say, that we are very excited and nervous all rolled into one. Hearing the heartbeat for the first time, is a sound I will never forget. We had been trying for really only about a month and it happened way faster than we expected. We feel truly blessed for what God has given us. Sometimes it does not even seem real.
Second, I'm sending high props to all the women that have been though this whole pregnancy vomiting thing...WOW...I had no idea. And then there are women that have little ones at home and still have to function. I'm fortunate enough that I only work 3 days a week, so I just stayed in bed the others and we took a 2 week vacation in the worst weeks, which made for a very non-exciting vacation but lots of well needed R&R. My husband has been great, I'm so blessed for him. He's done EVERYTHING he could to make this easier for me.
As for now, I'm starting to feel better and I'm so ready to join society again.
