We are expecting! Our little bundle of joy is due March 30th, 2012! Yep, the day before my birthday! So to answer a few questions up front....
No, we were not planning this! We were planning on trying soon, as some of you know I was having health problem, part of that was effecting my menstrual cycles. In order to give our little one the best chance possible we were also preventing pregnancy until I got healthy again. Needless to say we were a little surprised when in August I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive, especially since I haven't had a cycle since March 2011.
Things in our lives have kind of fallen into place for this and it has strengthened our testimonies of your Heavenly Father's hand in all things. We are so excited.
No, we will not be finding out the gender of the baby. I don't think there is anything wrong with finding out, but I have always wanted a surprise! Plus I am afraid that if I know what we are having that I will buy way to much stuff.
Do we hope for a boy or a girl? Ok you all know this answer! We will be so happy with whatever gender of baby we are blessed with, but I would be lying if I don't secretly hope its a boy!
Cravings? Yes, I had my doubts that this was a real thing, but I have been craving a few things, anything with tomatoes, especially v8. Orange Juice and Pepperoncinis!
So I got to do all of the telling to our parents since Josh is out of town (lucky guy he gets to be gone for 1/2 of the pregnancy, I am sure time will seem to fly for him). Click the link below to watch how I told my family and their reactions. Not the best cinematography, but its pretty neat!
