We found out a week before Christmas. We couldn't wait to tell our families especially since a holiday was coming up, and we were going to spend Christmas with Greg's family. This is their first grandchild! So we told everyone when I was only 6 weeks along! Super early I know...we were just so excited and couldn't hold it in!
So far, pregnancy for me hasn't been that bad. During my first trimester, I had some nausea but never actually vomited because of it and it didn't last all that long. I think I'm one of those super lucky women because I've heard stories of how other women had nausea for almost half their pregnancy or longer!
My second trimester has been great! I've got to feel our little guy move (yes, it's a boy!) and Greg has been able to feel him move also! Our little boy is funny especially when it comes to letting his daddy feel him move. Almost every time I tell Greg "Hey wanna feel him move?" Greg would excitedly put his hand on my belly and the baby would stop moving! Silly little guy. I haven't taken any belly shots yet because I don't think I look pregnant! I know and Greg knows I'm showing but I think I look like I just gained a bunch of weight and that's it :( I'll take one today, post it, and see what you think.
Here's a picture of our boy at 21 weeks. He's a cutie :)
We are so excited for our son to come, but at the same time it's kind of scary! Being responsible for something so precious and completely dependent makes me nervous even though I've babysat plenty of babies and toddlers. I guess the fact that this one is actually mine to take care of makes me feel that way. But I know Greg and I won't be horrible parents and that we'll have plenty of support from our families and friends to help us out when we need it!
We can't wait to see who he looks like, if he will have red hair or not, what color his eyes are, what kind of personality he'll have, and everything else that comes with such a bundle of joy!
What's his name you ask? Right now, it's Brandon James. (Flows pretty well don't ya think?)
Baby Brandon, we love you and are looking forward to getting to know you!
His little foot!
