Finally, time to share our BIG news!!! I don't even know how to express here our excitement at being able to announce our first (of many?) baby! Let me introduce you. This was our little one 5 weeks ago, at 9 1/2 weeks old... 

As of today, baby is 14 weeks. Happy 14 weeks baby! 

We (baby and I) have officially entered our second trimester! But, when is the big Due Date? August 16th! A summer baby! I'm a big supporter of summer birthdays, I've got a June birthday right here. 

Would you like a back story? Well, I found out I was expecting on December 8th. I had a dollar store test at home, took it, and stared at what almost looked like a little pink line. It was so faint I wasn't sure I saw it because it was there or because I wanted something to be there. So what did I do? I took another dollar store test... same result (I'm not sure why I thought it would be different). 

Ok, I thought. Enough of these dollar store tests, time to go spend the big bucks at the grocery store. I ran down to my closest Yokes, bought my test, and went home. In true "just my luck fashion" I didn't really pay a lot of attention to the box I had grabbed and once I got home I discovered that the two pack box I had purchased had only one test. Stupid poor, embarrassed, pregnant teenager (I assume) had stolen one of my tests! That means I paid $12 for one test! However, I was in to much of a hurry and a bundle of nerves to go back and demand the cashier give me a second test, plus that might be weird.

This time there was a little less faint of a line, so I was pretty sure this was the one! The next step was to tell Kevin. I waited for him to come home and broke it to him gently (I mean nervously- for me). I am so bad at anything emotional or any kind of big news. I tend to immediately start crying, good news or bad, and I tend to freak people out. Thankfully Kevin was not freaked out, he was super excited and made me feel so much better. I love that guy!

So that's my story. Of course, you should not be surprised that ever since we found out Kevin has been helping me keep a week by week record of my pregnancy. These come complete with pictures and a summary of the week. It's my version of a pregnancy journal. I've put every week so far here in this post, and I plan posting every week from now until baby. Enjoy!
