Maybe it was all the hormones, but I was genuinely moved to tears at all of your kind words for our little announcement on Friday. Micah and I are just over the moon, and I was SO excited to finally get to share our news with you guys (you wouldn't believe how hard it was for me to hold it in for almost eight weeks!). And I promised to share the details, so details you shall have.
We had planned on starting "trying" in May. (Isn't it so awkward to share that you're basically having a whole lot of sex with your husband? Considering that Micah is the most handsome man in existence, I figured you guys assumed, but in case there was ever any doubt... ;)) But since I was basically MIA that month, and it's sort of important that both people be present, we didn't really start until the next month. Two months, a whole lot of ovulation sticks, and a few Clear Blue tests later, we had ourselves a baby!
As of today, I am 12.5 weeks pregnant, and I seriously couldn't be happier.
Apart from the constant nausea, food aversions, a super-hero's sense of smell, digestive issues (TMI, I know, but I'm going to do my best to keep things real around here), and overwhelming fatigue, I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet.
And that's no sarcasm, y'all. For no real reason, there was a tiny (or maybe a gigantic) part of me that had braced myself for fertility issues. And I know so many who have struggled and are still struggling, praying with all of their might for the chance to bring a baby into this world. So every time I feel tempted to complain about how I feel or how tired I am, I remember what a gift this is and how quickly it will fly by. I really do want to try and cherish every moment.
So I swear I'll have other, normal things to talk about, but I do have a few posts that I wrote as things were happening that I'd like to share, and I'm also planning on doing weekly or bi-weekly bump dates. Mostly just so I never forget all of the tiny details that I cherish so much right now.
Thank you guys again for your sweet thoughts, and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
