Nic and I are over the moon!!!
There was something so special about the two of us being the only people in the whole world to know for a little while. It also hardly even felt real when the only signs that I actually was pregnant were two little pink lines on a stick and a little nausea. haha What made it all the more real were two events in the last week...
On Tuesday, we got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. Nic and I stared at each other from across the room as we waited anxiously for what we were told would be a very fast sound compared to my own heartbeat. Silence, silence, silence.... and there it was... 146 beats per minute. Through tears in my eyes, I giggled and smiled at Nic and he was grinning from ear to ear. It was amazing!
This weekend we finally shared the news with our family and friends and it was SO much fun telling everyone. Each person's reaction to the news was the best! We always wanted everyone to be surprised when we finally told them so no one knew we were trying. There were shouts of joy, tears, and just an outpouring of love for this new little one to come.
I am currently 13 weeks and just started my second trimester. I was nauseous for about 6 weeks in the later part of my first trimester and pretty tired all the time but the second I hit 12 weeks I have felt great! I am becoming the master of eating mini meals throughout the day. For some reason it seemed to take me a while to figure out that, that's what the baby was needing from me. It must be that I am a first timer. ;) I am due around November 1st so we will be welcoming this baby into the world right before the holidays! We can hardly wait!!!!
