Baby Hitter Update

So far so good!

We want to say “thank you” to everyone who has prayed or sent their well wishes.  So far, everything is looking great!  We went to the Dr. on the 23rd and then had an ultrasound on the 27th.  I have added the picture below.  His/her heartbeat was at a whopping 188 bpm, which the nurse said is very healthy!  Woo hoo!!

We have another ultrasound on May 18th, so we will keep everyone posted!  They have not changed the due date, so we are still looking at November 24th, 2012.  Jay may be getting the best birthday present of all! ❤

So far I have not really gotten sick, but I definitely do NOT feel like myself.  I am nauseous almost every day, but I manage to keep it down.  My energy level is at an amazing level of ZERO!  Hopefully that will change soon, as I near the end of the first trimester.  I have put in work orders for the dish, laundry, bathroom and cleaning in general fairies, but I have not received a reply yet.  Soon though, I can feel it!! 😉

Lane is SUPER excited and tells everyone he knows that he is going to have a little baby brother or sister.  Of course he is aware of the risks, but that doesn’t stop him from being excited.  He prays for the baby at bedtime prayers.

Jay and I have agreed to disagree on whether it’s a boy or girl.  We have also agreed that we will not discuss baby names until we know for sure. HAHA.

I am excited to keep everyone updated on this wonderful journey, and we appreciate all prayers and well wishes!

~Our Story~

Over 9 years ago, Jay and I met thru mutual friends.  Never in a million years did we ever think we would be married today!  Years went by and we eventually lost touch with one another, moving on with our lives.  In the Summer of 2010 I contacted Jay via Facebook to see what he had been up to.  We started talking more frequently and one thing led to another.  In the Summer of 2011 Jay asked me to marry him!  I was ecstatic!!!  I finally had found someone who I truly loved and wanted to spend my life with.  Lane and Jay got a long great, so there was nothing holding us back.  October 22, 2011, we said our vows in front of family and friends.  Married life has been absolutely amazing!  Having your best friend there with you everyday, to support you, to help you, to be your rock is something I wish everyone has the opportunity to experience.  It truly is a one of a kind feeling.

It has taken some getting used to though.  Sharing my stuff, space, time and of course the joint checking. 😉  But I would not trade it for anything!  Jay and I have come to the mutual agreement that I am always right (or maybe I came up with that on my own!) but none the less, we communicate and work things out.  This is what true happiness is all about.

The only thing that could make our life more complete would be to have a baby of our own.  As many of you know, I have a beautiful Angel up in Heaven, Cheyenne.  After Cheyenne, I was blessed with Lane, followed by a few miscarriages.  When Jay and I got married I was terrified that I would not be able to give him the child he wanted.  He loves Lane, but he wants to be able to experience “fatherhood” with his own child as well.  This was my biggest fear, that I would let him down.  Thru much praying and faith I would like to ask you to save the date of November 24, 2012 as we welcome our own bundle of joy!!!!  Yes, you have read that correctly.  I am currently 8 weeks and 1 day pregnant and the little peanut should make his or her debut right around Jay’s birthday.  Please keep us in your prayers, as anything can change, and it is all in God’s hands at this point. Please do not post anything on Facebook, as we would like to wait until we are further along…just to make sure. Thank you.

I will try to update the blog as often as I can with details (I will spare you the gross ones!), pictures and family events.  Thank you all for reading this! 🙂
