Thats right! We are pregnant! Sad news is the hubs just got back surgery so he is a bit miserable but in better spirits knowing theres a bun in the oven =] Its almost hard to believe that there is a little cell inside of me turning into a baby as we speak! I cannot wait to be at the first ultrasound to be able to see it and hear a heart beat! My first pregnancy class is next week wednesday so I imagine it will start getting real, soon! I haven't had many symptoms just been exhausted, but thats usual ;]
I was racking my brain trying to figure out a way to tell Joel and it pretty much came to me on a silver platter. After Joel's surgery, he was asking for baby wipes to "hygiene" himself (Military life.) since he cant take showers yet so when I found out I was pregnant I was stoked to use the baby wipes as my way to tell him! It was the morning of his 2nd surgery and I couldn't wait so I pulled out the baby wipes telling him he should hygiene, it took him a second of looking completely dead to the world to give me the "REALLY??" expression (I don't blame him after all he had gone through). I hugged him as softly as I could without hurting him and then off we went to surgery =[ Everything went well and we are back at home recovering! I am getting LOTS of practice for this baby with this big baby at home, helping him out of bed, feeding him, cleaning him, and wiping his behind... thats right... I thought that would happen when we were old and grey, but nope... we definitely have gone to a whole new level of love lol
My mom-in-law has been here to help with Joel so we couldn't help but buy something gender neutral! If its a girl, I am DEFINITELY getting the pink zebra one =]

Happy or moody? Had an episode at the hospital while my husband was recovering from his surgery, all of a sudden I was super irritable and frustrated with the hospital staff, and then I started busting out laughing because there were tears rolling down my face! I couldnt even control it, I was full on crying and I wasnt even crying. Weirdest moment so far! Overall though I have been happy =]
Weekly wisdom: Only need 300 more calories a day, dont feed for 2! Hoping to stay in as good of shape as possible while still keeping baby healthy (Fingers crossed atleast) =]
Looking forward to? GENDER! And a bump to create new outfits with!
