The cat is out of the bag! We've officially made the announcement that we're pregnant so everyone knows! It's relieving to not have to keep this secret anymore. Telling Braedan was interesting. He was excited until he asked, "How many more minutes until the baby gets here?" and I had to tell him that it takes a very long time for babies to grow in their mommy's tummies. He lost interest at that point. Luckily he's too curious for his own good and came back with a ton of questions the next day. So far we've avoided the dreaded "Where do babies come from?"
Sorry we haven't posted belly pictures yet. Life has been pretty busy. With school and my new job Rich and I have hardly been at home together long enough to take one! But I promise they will come soon!
The exciting news is that I feel like I actually have a belly to take a picture of. My jeans have been getting tighter and tighter by the day. I was even forced to shop for maternity shirts the other day because my regular shirts are sadly too short to cover my lame hair tie around the pants button trick.
I've also noticed a bit of swelling in my hands at night and in the morning. Not to the point where I have to remove my wedding ring, but enough that it takes a minute to get it off.
In conclusion to my 12 week update I'll let you all know that we saw the midwife on Tuesday and everything looks good. We even got to hear the little bean's heartbeat on the doppler! Next week we get an ultrasound so there will be good pictures of baby!
Here's our 12 week photo! Rich was in a hurry to get to work and Braedan wasn't interested in holding the chalkboard this time, so it's not great, but it's documentation! 3 weeks sure changes a lot!
