Where to begin.... We are having a baby!!! I'm so excited!!!
It's like the minute you find out your pregnant everything changes, especially your mindset! Lance and I have always wanted kids and Lance would have wanted me to pop out the kids the minute I said "I Do" but we weren't ready and honestly I don't know if I am right now, I mean I don't know if you ever really are for something this big. The last few years have been AMAZING with Lance, he is my best friend and we have so much fun living life together. We love going to the movies, late night snack runs, slumber parties in the living room, vacations, and sometimes just being kids ourselves! So as all these emotions began to hit me, the first thing I thought was "I'm gonna miss those times" but my husband reassured me he's still here, he's not going anywhere lol and it's gonna be that much more fun with our family!
I'm a lil scared, nervous, and anxious but I think that's normal and before I would have let these fears get in the way because I had such a great mom and wasn't sure I could live up to that. But now I realize she is my inspiration and I'm glad I could know and have had such a wonderful mom! Really, life is too short and I don't want to miss out on such a wonderful purpose! So the journey begins....
I found out right before Christmas and Lance and I wanted to surprise our families. So, since we went to visit my family in California, we made a video for Lance's family to play on Christmas and surprised them. How we told my family is I bought Lance a gift that he could open in front of my family. They were shocked...it took them a few seconds to catch on.
I haven't seen my official OBGYN yet but if we go by my first visit to the Dr I saw for the pregnancy test I am going on 8 weeks. It's been interesting thus far, I have definitely experienced my first morning sickness and I have learned that riding in cars makes me sick whether I go 2 hours or 10 min. No food cravings yet, really any kind of bread sounds good to my tummy at this point! I have been a lil sleepy at times but other than that it's been pretty good, hopefully it stays this way!
