And then there were 3!!!

Adam and I are pregnant!



I am nine and a half weeks along and so far so good. I haven't had any morning sickness… maybe a little nausea but nothing to speak of… I am starting to crave certain foods, not odd ones, just certain ones. And things that I used to like (like Chipotle) now seem revolting. All in all, it's been pretty easy so far! Oh and Adam and I have nicknamed the baby Peabert until we know the sex of the baby! If you are asking, it's a hybrid between Peanut and Blobert (guess which name was mine and which one was Adams).

My friends have been teasing me that I will be one of 'those' girls that loves being pregnant, embraces the crappy stuff and enjoys watching her body get big… and they are totally right. That isn't to say that I won't have days where I wish it was over with… I am sure I will… however, I really am going to love this. I relish the idea of a big stomach (hopefully not big legs, big ankles, big arms, big face, ect… but whatever)… I can't wait to actually see a living human actually growing in me. The thought almost makes me burst with anticipation! If you are rolling your eyes right now, smack yourself for me please.

Anyway, I say all that to say, I am so excited… I can't believe this day is here… I have dreamed about it longer than I have dreamed about a husband (sorry honey!).

The one sadness is that my mom isn't here to watch this…she would have loved to see me as a mom… She was going to make an AWESOME grandmother... she would have loved to see a little Adam/Jessica running around ;~)

Stay tuned… I am sure I will talk a little more about the baby… who am I kidding, that is my #1 topic right now!

Oh and BTW – I am the 6th girl to be pregnant in our bible study… holy what's in the water batman! Kristen, April, Molly, Diane and Kiley, I am right behind you guys!

Congrats Jess....
It's pretty amazing!!! It really hit us when they use that microphone thingy and you listen to the heartbeat. That made it SO real. Enjoy it all.

But be careful not to push hubby aside. Remember that your relationship comes first....

YAY!! I gasped out loud when I read the title and saw the sonogram, and I'm subbing in ghe library today, lol!
Girl, I'm so happy for you! And you too, Adam! Save the sonogram pic, frame it, it's their first picture! I've got both of my boys 1st sonograms in frames still and smile when I see them.
This is the best time ever, I absolutely loved being pregnant both times. Never had any morning sickness, loved my tummy getting big and loved watching them move around and their feet kicking out to where you can rub them. FUN!!
Congratulations! Lot's of prayers going up, and giving MUCH thanks!!
