I am so overwhelmed by all the love from yesterday! Each and every one of your comments, tweets, emails, texts, etc just melted my heart. Thank you so much for your kind words, excitement and well wishes- they mean the world to me!
…and phew, am I glad the news is OUT! Do you know how hard it is to blog about healthy living with all I wanted for a few weeks were bagels and cream cheese and the thought of broccoli made me want to gag? It’s hard 🙂
The blog won’t turn into all baby talk – promise! – but this week may be dedicated to some of the changes that have happened lately, but first, let me answer the most asked questions…
How far along are you?
As of yesterday, I am 15 weeks pregnant with Baby D (Baby Dixon). We had a doctor appointment yesterday and heard the heard pounding away at 144 beats per minute. It’s the sweetest sound I’ll ever hear.
This puts my due date at September 6. Whew- summer is going to be a hot one!
Where you trying?
This little guy or girl was a wonderful surprise! So in short, no, we were not actively trying. In fact, we had just decided to wait one more year before giving it a go, but God had other plans. We always knew we wanted kids, and once I finally believed the pregnancy tests (which took a loooong time), we couldn’t be more excited!
When did you find out?
I have been keeping Baby D a secret for THREE MONTHS! I found out on December 29. Why did I test? Looking back, I’m not quite sure. I just kept feeling extremely tired- even in the middle of the day- which is unlike my usual, energetic self. I’ll tell the whole story on another post 🙂
Do you know if Baby D is a he or she?
No, we don’t know yet, though I’ve been feeling boy all along. We will be finding out in three weeks, however, we plan to keep it a secret until he/she is born… wish me luck! 🙂
I’m just so excited about it all, that this week will be baby week on the blog! I’ll fill you in about the changes in eating and exercising I’ve experienced (it’s been wacky!), and tell you the story of the day I found out I was pregnant, too.
Thank you again SO MUCH for all your kind words and support… what an adventure!
Any other pregnancy/baby questions you’d like me to answer?
