When I first found out I was pregnant I was super excited that I was blogging during this pregnancy so that I could document it and remember all sorts of things that I don't remember with Ellington. And then...I didn't blog. Now I'm halfway through and haven't blogged a thing about being pregnant (other than feeling sick all through Christmas). I also don't have any pictures. :( Shame. I have a few on instagram but for some reason no matter what I try I can't get them on here. My goal is to try to get better about taking a pic every few weeks on the real camera and give pregnancy updates. We'll see.
So how about a few details with no pictures? Let's start at the beginning. :) I found out I was pregnant on Monday Oct. 29th at about 6:30 am. Robert goes to a men's Bible study really early on Monday mornings and he was already gone. So I found out alone in our bathroom before school. :) I was SHOCKED. Even though it is definitely what we wanted, I was not expecting it that morning. It was fun going through the day knowing that I was the only person in the whole world who knew I was pregnant. Robert had a meeting in Jackson that day and didn't get home until late afternoon. Ellington colored a pictured for him that said "I am going to be a big sister!" and she gave it to him when he got home. He was excited and a little shocked too I think. We told our families in November. I am just not good at the waiting part. Then we announced it to the rest of the world either at the verrry end of November.
So, how have I been feeling? Glad you asked. The first four months were rough. Maybe tmi, but I didn't throw up as much as I did with Ellington but I generally felt worse than I did with Ellington. It was like I was always under some yucky feeling cloud. Robert was around a lot during most of this time and did SO MUCH. I don't know how I would have made it without him! Ellington was also super sweet and always tried to take care of me. I still have moments of not feeling great but overall I am doing really really well now!
I am about 2 days away from being 20 full weeks so I am halfway done! That seems really crazy, but July still seems like a loooong way away! We find out whether we are having a girl or a boy NEXT week! Yay! I have been very impatient these last few weeks. I am ready to know! I went and looked at E's unltrasound pic and we found out with her at 17 wks 5 days, so it seems like it has taken extra long this time. :) I have NO clue what we are having. Mostly I lean towards boy just because we already have a girl, but who knows?! I can.not.wait.
So there is a brief update of the last 20 weeks. Hopefully I can document a little more in the next 20 weeks!
