Enough Teasing...



Thanks for playing along! A and I are excited to announce that yes, we are expecting our first baby on February 8, 2009! We wanted to be cautious and wait until the 1st trimester was over before we spread the news, but I just couldn't wait another day to share my exciting news with y'all. We are so thankful and thrilled about our blessing.

So that explains---the canceled anniversary trip to the Dominican Republic (who wants to go to an all inclusive and not drink), the move to the slightly bigger apartment and the general lack of posts about life.

I know you want to ask:

1) Were we trying? Yes, but it happen very quickly for us so we are very lucky.

2) How far along are you? I'm 11 weeks and 2 days. =)

3) How are you feeling? Oh girls--it has been a TOUGH 11 weeks. Let's just say I'm on Zofran 2-3 times a day right now and I spent our anniversary vacation hanging my head over the porcelain god at our beach house. I've never been this tired in my entire life. But, I'm coming around and it is all for a VERY good cause and I know it is worth it.

4) Are you showing? A little. I tried on two skirts today that were too tight. According to BabyCenter the baby is the size of a fig this week. My sweet lil' fig!

5) Have you told your job? No, not yet. I'm going to do that in the next two weeks before I start popping out of my shirts! I'm NOT looking forward to the conversation. I do plan to stay at my current job until the baby comes and then we'll go from there.

6) Have you had an ultrasound? Yes, I've had two and they were AMAZING! Everything looks great so far. A got to go to the 2nd one and it was one of the best moments in my life to watch our little bean moving around on the screen together. I get chills just thinking about it. I'll post pics soon. I have another one on July 31st.

7) Are you going to find out what it is? Yes, we are going to find out. How else would I monogram everything?? I have an appt scheduled for Sept 3rd and I'll be almost 18 weeks then so I'm hoping that will be when we find out.

8) Do you want a girl or a boy? I just want a healthy baby. I want one or two more kids after this baby so I'm good with either one. Hubby REALLY wants a boy (of course, he too, just wants a healthy baby)

9) Do you have names picked out? We have several family names that we both like, but we'll wait and narrow down the options when we know what it is.

10) So you are going to have a Yankee baby? I KNOW, I KNOW. Who would have ever thought my 1st child would have an NYC birth certificate--but both A and I really wanted kids and we figured that now was as good a time as any to start trying. It should be quite an adventure to have a city baby and I'm glad to have you gals around to give me tips on being a new mommy.

So excited to finally share our news with y'all!!

You know, when I saw your Gatorade on the previous post, I remembered drinking a ton of red gatorade when I was pregnant. It was the only drink I could keep down for some reason. Too funny.

Oh, congratulations!

You guys sound just thrilled, and all of your blogger girls are thrilled for you.

I've always thought Gatorade should do two new and idfferent spots to expand the brand:
1) for colds and flu sufferers, and;
2) for expecting ladies.

Woo-hoo!
