Thank you all SO, so much for sharing our excitement and for all of the sweet congratulations!
Our families' reactions were so precious to us and I'm so glad we were able to get them all on video - even my dad and Mr. D's sister (who live in Nashville and California, respectively). Thank goodness for technology!
I've had several questions so here's a little post with some details:
- What is your due date?
August 14, 2013
- How far along are you?
Today, I am 14 weeks and 5 days.
- How have you been feeling?
I have been very, very, very blessed. I never felt sick to my stomach - I was just very tired and I had some pretty consistent tension headaches in the first trimester - but both of those have improved drastically since hitting the second trimester. I did have some weird food aversions during the first trimester but I never actually felt or got sick. I was so thankful!
- What have you been craving?
My biggest craving has been ice cold water - which is so funny because I have always been a lukewarm water drinker. It has always grossed Mr. D out and he is astonished that I am now wanting ice cold water. I've also craved Diet Coke and since I can't drink it - that craving is pretty big. Some other cravings have been the black & white Little Debbie zebra cakes, Moose Tracks ice cream, fruit (oranges, apples, strawberries), and cereal. But as my sister said - those are all things I'd normally eat anyway. Haha!
- When did you find out you were pregnant?
At least 100 years ago. It feels that way, at least. I found out very early on December 2, 2012.
- Are you going to find out if it is a girl or a boy?
YES YES YES! We are finding out on March 13! I will be exactly 18 weeks that day. Cannot wait!
- Do you have a feeling or guess of what the gender is?
Well, I always pictured myself having a boy first (or even all boys). But, ever since I got pregnant, I've felt like this baby is a girl. So I'm kind of confused myself. Who knows!
- How many ultrasounds have you had?
I've had two - one at 8 weeks and another at 12 weeks. We heard the heartbeat at both of those and then we also heard it at 10 weeks and at 13 weeks 5 days. That little heartbeat is my favorite sound in the whole world.
- Is this blog going to become a baby/mommy blog?
This blog has always just been about my life with Mr. D and the fun that we have. I'm certainly not the most eloquent writer, and I don't do a ton of giveaways, sponsored posts, etc. I've always just written about the things we have going on. I will continue to write about our lives - not just baby things - and of course I'll keep on vlogging! Obviously, because a baby is becoming part of our lives, there will be baby things here.
And just for fun, here's a picture of me at the 12 week ultrasound!
