baby devey

I've been a terrible blogger lately.
 
I'm not even going to try to deny it.
 
But would it help if I told you that I'M GOING TO HAVE A BABY?!?!
 
That's right.  I'm pregnant.  With child.  Have a bun in the oven.  Am going to be a MOMMY.  And I can barely contain my excitement.



 It's such a surreal feeling.  We had our first ultrasound yesterday and even watching the baby up on the screen, it was hard to believe that the picture was actually coming from a baby in my tummy.  That the heartbeat I was hearing was coming from my body but that it wasn't my own.
 
Surreal, but beautiful.
 
I'm twelve weeks along, and I am so ecstatic to report that the nausea has lessened considerably in the last couple of weeks.  [You know, except for last weekend when I caught the stomach flu.  Then I had considerable nausea and even ended up completely dehydrated in the hospital.  And I'm sure it was just made 5,000 times worse by the fact that I'm pregnant.]
 
I would show you a "bump" picture, but let's be completely honest here: I don't look any different right now.  And any chance I did have of gaining some sort of tiny bump was probably gone with the pounds I lost during the Stomach Flu Incident of 2012.
 
Tim is absolutely convinced we are going to have a boy.  I honestly have no feeling one way or the other.  I keep thinking that whole maternal instinct thing will kick in and somehow I'll magically know the gender of my unborn child.  But I'm not holding my breath.  [Bad for the baby, duh.]
 
Either way, we are so excited.  There have been happy tears shed over this baby on more than one occasion.  And not just by me.



 Baby, you are worth every second of this.  Every.Single.One.

Congratulations! Being pregnant is so magical (once that morning sickness goes away :p) and if you think about it, you will have a tiny baby in your arms in about six months from now. Now that is something to look forward to. :)

Yea yea yea! It is worth every second. And as for the gender thing, Kirk and I were both convinced it was a girl (even though we secretly both wanted a boy first). But nope! Our instincts were dead wrong! So don't you worry and just wait to be surprised at that fun appointment. Lucky baby to have you as parents!

I know we're not like super ultimate friends that know each other crazy good, but I think you're amazingly sweet and kind. And I think you'll make an incredible mother. Fo rizzle. And I'm happy we get to have babies together. Please have a girl.

So excited for you two!!

Yay! Babies Everywhere!

Congrats! Can't wait to read all about your experiences. (Although a lot of us understand that pregnancy = bad blogging. It's just the way it is!)

Good luck mama!
