Math? Science? No, not so much my forte. History? English? Yes, yes indeed. I could handle those subjects. In fact, I love English and History. Math, not so much. I don't necessarily HATE math, it just doesn't come too easily for me. I'm not so good at it.
So, why am I talking about math here? Well, I had a visit to the doctor yesterday and I found out something that's kinda crazy. I only thought I was 14 weeks along. I was informed I am 16 weeks along. Somewhere in this pregnancy I lost two weeks. And I am totally ok with that. :)
Yes, we're expecting again! And, as you can imagine, we waited this long to tell everyone outside of immediate family because of our last pregnancy and my sudden, "I'm pregnant!" post and then a few days later, "I miscarried" post. Sorry to keep you all out of the loop, but honestly, until today, I really didn't even let myself get excited about this pregnancy, for fear that I would lose it. I know, I know, where's my faith, right? Reality was interfering.
So, now that the news is out, I'll update you on the last few months and my keeping quiet. :) I started feeling nasty and nauseous about the end of February. Smells would send me spiraling downward toward a toilet. And I could never puke. Hated it. I only threw up once. I just wanted relief! But, I am mostly over all that now. I still get the occasional bout of nausea but, for the most part, I am over it. Thank goodness! As far as being tired, HOLY CRAP. I am convinced if I was left alone to sleep for 20 hours out of the day, I could have. I felt exhausted all the time. I just wanted to nap all day, every day. Now I have a lot more energy, but I still get tired way easily. Other than that, no crazy cravings (yet) and lots of weird, vivid dreams. Oh, and I'm getting fat. Yippee! :) Seriously, not liking the thick mid-section, but there's gotta be some room for new baby Calaway, right? I guess I can stretch for him/her. :)
Oh, and we're not gonna find out the sex. Sorry. We want to be surprised, so you get to be surprised with us! Isn't that fun?? :) We decided we want Christmas to come early this year, in the form of the newest member of our little family.
I'm due October 29th. Yes, that would be the day before my 23rd birthday. Happy Birthday to me! Who knows, maybe I will share my birthday with our baby! That would be pretty awesome.
I have ultrasound pictures to show you too, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I am enjoying them. I think I could look at this new little wee babe all day long. I've fallen in love again. :) I think Dallin has too. We already love this little alien creature inside of me. (Seriously, some of the pictures today were scarily similar to the aliens on Independence Day. Thank goodness at our next appointment he/she will look more normal! :))
So, here they are, enjoy!! Oh, and Hillary, Ashley Furness, or Tammy Furness, Sadie, anybody that has contact with Bishop Egbert: Please tell him for us that we are expecting. He told us he wanted to know when I was pregnant again. Thank you a million!
Profile Picture. This kid did NOT want to be photographed today. The fact that we got this shot was quite amazing.
See the hand at the mouth? Every time we tried to look at his/her face, he/she covered it's face with their hand or would turn their face downward. Pretty cute for an alien baby though. :)
