our happy announcement

It sure has been a long time since I posted, but the past few months have been pretty eventful, thanks to anticipation of the newest little Webb, due on September 23rd. I spent the whole first trimester cautiously optimistic, excited about the pregnancy but so nervous about possibly miscarrying again. I was SO thrilled to see a healthy baby on our 12 week ultrasound, and everything has gone well since.

We told our parents in late January and close friends as time passed but held off on spreading our news widely until Easter weekend. Sweet Leah, my brother Jeff's girlfriend made us an adorable sign, and we used it as a prop to announce our news to the world. I was almost 15 weeks on Easter Sunday.

happy, happy, happy

I am close to 17 weeks at this point, and oh how I am starting to feel it! My belly has appeared and can no longer be concealed, and I've bought a few maternity clothing items. I am loving the warmer weather though and the ability to wear some of my normal dresses and skirts that are a little more flowy.

I didn't have a bit of morning sickness (and am so thankful for that!), but I did eat fairly frequently to avoid nausea. Lately I've gotten a bit light-headed if I stand for too long or don't drink enough water, but that is avoidable. My only cravings are pretty stereotypical- pickles! And early on it was grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes and french fries...not anything healthy at all. I was an every-morning coffee drinker pre-pregnancy, but now I can take it or leave it.

I have several dear friends who are also pregnant right now, and I love having them all to experience with. I know what a blessing it is to have a healthy pregnancy and am not taking a bit of it for granted. Having everyone be so excited for us is just icing on the cake. Next up? Finding out what we're having in the next couple of weeks so the nursery-designing and clothes-shopping can begin!
