Oh Baby...

I haven't been neglecting this blog by accident...major life "stuff" has been happening lately and I just haven't been ready to share yet. My husband and I are still adjusting to this latest development, but we agreed now it's time to let the word out officially...we're expecting a baby in June!

So far my pregnancy has involved a lot of puking and sleeping. Apparently that's incredibly common in the first trimester. I like to claim that this first trimester has been sponsored by Linda Blair. Seriously, I never knew what would set me off and it would differ from one day to the next!

Explain to me the logic behind not being able to keep down rice cereal and dry toast, but craving Coke and Taco Bell's nachos and Crunchwrap Supremes? I've learned to just go with the cravings and make my insides (and what feels like the parasite growing inside me) happy.

I haven't been able to stand cooking anything meat-related in about 2 months and I'm hoping that changes soon, we're a little starved for protein around here. I had a doctor's appointment today and everything looks good. My due date is June 17 and I'm going to be 13 weeks along on Friday. It still feels like yesterday when we found out (more than 4 weeks ago) and completely panicked at this new little surprise God has decided to drop in our laps! Thankfully, we're starting to adjust our brains to the concept of having a baby, although this whole pregnancy/labor/birth thing seems like a disgusting cosmic joke to me.

I am definitely not of the "this is a beautiful process" school of school of thought revolves mostly around the "this is so gross and horrifying, why can't I be unconscious throughout this process" concept.

So that's what's new in our lives at the moment, hopefully I'll be updating this blog a little more regularly now that I can actual feel comfortable sharing what's going on in my head lately. We have picked out names for a girl and a boy - we LOVE them, but the girl's name is really really cool. No, we're not sharing it yet on here...but probably will once we know what we're having.

As for now, I'm off to find a Taco Bell fix.
