YEP! Matthew and I are expecting!! We are so excited. We just started trying in late September and are shocked that it happened so quickly. (I had bought a book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and I am convinced that is why it happened so quickly. I recommend all women buy this book – you learn A LOT about your body! Seriously, pretty much all my “mom” friends are advocates of this book too.) According to the internet calculators, my due date is July 24, just three days prior to my birthday! Ironically, it is Matthew’s birthday today, so we both get a gift. 🙂 Needless to say, our parents are thrilled, especially mine since it is the first grandchild on that side of the family. My dad is already calling himself Papa.
As you may have read, Amber and Josh were planning on taking our pictures Saturday for our Christmas card, so we got a double whammy out of the shoot- Christmas Card AND Pregnancy news. Here are a couple of my favorites.
After the shoot was our Courtney Delaura class at Scrapn’ Memories. We had a lot of fun. I will share pictures in another post… I had to buy the Scrapbooks Etc. Baby book and a couple baby rub-ons and paper. Lol. After class, Amber and I had a little time to kill, so we went to Old Navy, where I found maternity pants for $6!! YEA! They are for next spring- we figured I would surely be “that big” by the.
Matthew and I have both independently ordered pregnancy books already off Amazon, and I am thinking a third order is likely…
So, those of you who are Moms, what do you wish someone would have advised you at the start of your pregnancy? Please share!! I look forward to reading your thoughts.
Please be praying for us during this exciting season, as well as for the baby!
