An Update

Well I've had my first official ultrasound and....drum roll please......


....there is only one baby and we are indeed much farther along than we thought.  Like 10 weeks and 5 days along.  Our tentative due date is now January 30, 2013 which means (hopefully) I get to be monstrously pregnant during Christmas which I've always thought would be really wonderful!  

Now, to be fair to me and my ability to use NFP, I did think we were fertile when we conceived this little miracle and I took a pregnancy test after the obligatory wait and it was negative so I just assumed we weren't pregnant.  I guess the moodiness and weight gain should have tipped me off :)  Chris, astute as always, said "so....for the past two months when you said you were getting fat, you were just pregnant?"  Yes honey, I guess I was but I don't think it's nearly as funny as you do......


I guess this doesn't really look like a five week baby bump.....but then it doesn't exactly look like a ten week bump either does it?  I'm just excited to have miraculously skipped the majority of my first trimester!  Now my biggest worry is being homeless and doctor-less in the near future when our things move to Florida and the boys and I start our nomadic adventure.

  1. That's such good news! I love the ultrasound picture! What a cute little baby!! The baby bump definitely pops out faster after you've had a few babies.

  2. YAY!!! SUCH great news!! We just found out I'm preggers too! Not quite 5 weeks though... And I DIDN'T think I was fertile (yet) and didn't think there was a chance I could get pregnant when I did (we'd been trying for a few months) and thought my fertile time was during my trip to Hawaii so we'd miss the boat this month.... Well, turns out my fertility doesn't follow the normal schedule even though the rest of my cycle does! I'm due mid-March!!! So....next question.....what's in Florida?!?

    1. That's great news! Chris' next duty station is NAS Jacksonville so that's where we're heading next...we just don't have any housing as of yet and the move's already been scheduled so as of now, once he goes TAD to RI for school the boys and I are homeless :) I'm sure everything will work out though!

  4. Congratulations! And wow, there's something cool about getting to sail by the first trimester. It feels like you get to meet your little one even sooner. Kind of hope it works out for me that way next time around. ;)

    Congrats again!

    1. Thank you so much! I can't wait to meet this little one but I don't think I'll really relax until I pass the twenty week mark. And I might also add that I was embarrassingly excited to see that you've been reading my blog :)
