BABY, BABY, BABY!!!!

All I have to say is
IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Skylar and I have a BIG announcement to make.....


WE ARE EXPECTING OUR FIRST BABY!


I am officially 7 weeks and my due date is February 8. It seems like a long time away, but i know it will go by fast! Maybe not though, with the way i have been feeling time is going by way too slow! There is no such thing as morning sickness! It is 24 hour sickness for me. Now, I know we all go through this, but it is way hard working 10 hour days and being sick. Somehow, i know i will get through it and it will all be worth it in the end.


I won't give a big drawn out story, but Skylar and I are so excited. It has been a long time coming and it is such a miracle!
After trying for 2 and 1/2 years i had finally gotten to the point of resigning myself to the fact that i may never have my own children. I have no doubt now that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and i can not doubt that now is the time for us to bring a child into the world!

Congratulations! We're so happy for you! Our first one didn't come for almost four years, so I know how you have been feeling. Also, I had "morning" sickness all day long with all seven of my pregnancies, up to about seven months each time. Ginger, as in ginger ale and ginger-ade helped me. Tiffany might have some good ideas for you also!

Congratulations to you both! It is such a happy time and I know how it is being so sick. I was sick the whole time with Jackson and this pregnancy is the same. It is terrible. Hang in there though..It is so worth it when your little one is here and you get to enjoy all those moments. Preggie drops and pops have helped alot as well as Zofran which your Dr. can prescribe for you if you don't have it. I hope you feel better. Keep us posted...Again congrats!

Traci! ZOFRAN! ZOFRAN! ZOFRAN! And something that I loved at night during the early days were Pace Pops from the grocery store. Tell you doctor to give the zofran to you. Love ya! Marci

James and Bethany said...

I am so excited for you guys! You guys deserve it. You are going to love being a mother! It is great. I hate morning sickness and you are right it lasts all day long. What helped me was popsicles. I lived off of them for months. no smell and no preparation. I love you!!

Congrats! This is just the beginning of a huge adventure. Sorry you are feeling sick, just remember the whole pregnancy ends with a beautiful baby!

Regan & Annie Duckworth said...

Congrats on the pregnancy...and of course I remember you. I am pretty sure we made up a song about chap stick floating in the water at Lake Powell. Way fun! Sorry about being sick. Blah. I didn't have any of that thanks heavens.

Larvin & Ashley said...

Congrats! Babies definitely bring a sense of what life really is. I also was super sick 24/7. I lost twenty pounds my first trimester. The best thing for me was Vitamin B pills and half a unisom. I know it sounds crazy but my OB prescribed it. You can get both over the counter. Good Luck! If you have any questions I have seemed to go through everything. If I have not my sister-in-laws have. There are 17 grandchildren with one on the way all under 6 years old.

Abbie & Trevor said...

I feel like a blog stalker but I saw you through Richae's blog and had to comment on your pregnancy news. I am so excited for you guys and know the difficulty of trying for a baby. We are going on one year and nine months of trying and it seems like eternity when you are just ready to be a mom. You might have to give me some advice...

Marleen said...

Congrats! Motherhood is wonderful. Are you going to find out what the sex of the baby is? Also, thank you for your comment on my blog. My sister-in-law is amazed and grateful for all of the support she is getting through their family's ordeal. For me it is so nice to hear about babies being born and people getting pregnant. Thank you for sharing the happy news.

Congratulations!
