It’s about time

I am officially 13 weeks pregnant and figured it was time to spread the word- after having two miscarriages in the last 18 months I wanted to wait until I was out of my first trimester to share the good news. So far I have been feeling horrible, although it has finally started to get better in the last week or so. Brendan has been a real champ and let me lay on the couch and take naps while he watched cartoons. I’ve been feeling a bit neglectful but my stomach wouldn’t let me do much and I think both Brendan and I are thrilled at getting back to normal.

The due date is September 19th.

  2. HOORAY! Congratulations to the Near family. That kid picked a good family to come to! And September is a great month to be born in.

    I'm super bummed I won't be able to see you this summer but I know you will all have a blast together.

  3. YAY!!!!! Congratulations!!! I know it sucks to be sick, but that's how I could always tell if I was going to keep the baby or not. It's a weird oxymoronic feeling I guess to wish desperately to feel good again at the same time being so grateful to be puking because it means all is good in there. So in the most loving way possible - I wish you much sickness! We'll keep you guys in our prayers!!
