We're Having a A Baby!


WUHOO!! That is the well known response from my mom when she heard the news and a response that I will never forget. Tex and I are pregnant with our first child! We are absolutely elated with joy, way nervous, too anxious, and soooo excited! We are 3 months and 5 days into our pregnancy. The due date of our "little pumpkin" what I so kindly have nicknamed the baby is April 7th.

I have been with Tex going on 6 years now, and can remember discussing children years ago but never thought the day would actually arrive. We both cleared up early on in the relationship if one another wanted to have children, and luckily I was so kind to say yes I would be the bearer of children for sure, and he so kindly said I will contribute to the making of a child. And now even with a huge milestone in a pregnancy completed, the first trimester, it still feels like the day will not come soon enough when I can hold my precious little one. I am thrilled to be a mom and thrilled to have a husband who will be an excellent dad.

We have had 3 doctor visits so far and to catch you all up...here it is in a nutshell. No morning sickness for me, but my migraines are awful, worse than awful, debilitating. So far I have gained a whole 14 lbs, the doctor says I am doing great, and to proceed with whatever I am doing. On August 25th, an unexpected sickness made me go to the doc's office. I was put on IV and good painpills to calm a horrible migraine, yes a migraine put me out; I never thought a migraine could be that bad, but that was my diagnosis. The docs wanted to make sure the preg wasn't ectopic, so they ordered an ultrasound. Tex was by my side the whole time. We saw the little one and got 2 pics on the 25th, it was the coolest thing in the world, and the strangest knowing that there is a little human being growing in my belly. We didn't hear the heartbeat but it was pumping at 162. Then on September 15th, we heard the heartbeat, Tex almost cried, and all I could do was giggle and then stop breathing so I could hear the baby's heartbeat. It was racing away at 170.

So Wuhoo! We are having a baby! Tex and I will be parents , my parents will be grandparents and my sister will be an aunt and brothers will be uncles! It's weird that having a baby impacts the whole family. But I am already really excited for the little one that they have such cool relatives and an awesome Mom and Dad waiting.
