I know I say this at the beginning of every blog, but HOLY.MOLY. I am a horrible blogger. My last post was on December 10? Sheesh. It's almost been a year and so much to catch up on!
Jon and I found out we were pregnant on Sunday, June 3. It feels like yesterday. I felt funny that weekend. Finally, on Sunday afternoon, I told Jon I was going to buy a pregnancy test. He thought I might be jumping the gun a little bit, but told me to go ahead if it would put my mind at ease. I went in to the bathroom, came back out, and it wasn't a minute later that the little test read "Pregnant." I looked up at Jon who was very cozily laying on the couch, and just instantly burst into tears. He thought I was crying because the test was negative. I couldn't get out the words until he saw for himself. WOW. Are you sure? Is this thing for real? Seriously??? I took the other test for safe measure, and low and behold, that one said pregnant too!!!! Here.we.go.again.
I called my family, and my mom thought I had gotten into a car accident. She and I both screamed and cried. Jon called his family and they were very excited for us. I can't believe this is happening.again. I can't go through what I went through before. I can't. Jon was OVER THE MOON excited. It took me a little while to get excited, but I finally got there. We are going to be parents! Watch out world!!!
Before every Dr's appointment, I get nervous and the tears come. I just can't help it. My fabulous husband always calms me down before we leave and let's me know everything is ok and reminds me we get to see the baby today. He's going to be such a good Daddy.
We found out we are having a girl, and we are OVER THE MOON excited!!! A little baby girl! I like to call her my mini me. Jon jokes that she's going to be my little best friend. I can't wait to dress her up in dresses, and sparkley shoes and lots and lots of bows. The bigger the bow, the better! Jon and I decided on baby names I think before we were ever engaged. If it was a girl, we decided we were going to name her Ila Faye, after my grandmother. My Granny meant the absolute world to me. To be carrying on her maiden name, Embree, is an honor in itself. So, Jon and I decided that the perfect girl name would be Ila Faye Maxfield. We both knew that when we were blessed with a little girl, and having her name be Ila, we were in for a ride! She's going to be a ring tail tooter, but with a name like Ila, how could you not be?
So, we've made it to 25 weeks. A part of me thinks WOW! I'm 25 weeks already?? The other part of me thinks, holy.schmoly. I'm only 25 weeks??? These weeks have spun by, some seem to go faster than others, but that's just life. When we found out in June that we were due in February, I thought...there isn't any way I can possibly be pregnant that long!!! But, next week starts November, and February will be here before we know it! My pregnancy has gone okay for the most part. I have the typical all day sickness in my first trimester, felt pretty good all through out my second trimester. Now that I'm getting near the end my 2nd trimester and about to begin my third, things are getting a little cramped in my tummy, but that just reminds me that sweet Baby Ila is growing in there. It takes me a little longer to get up and get around. I have aches in places that I didn't know could ache. BUT, I'm definitely not complaining. I'm grateful and so excited that I'm finally pregnant and we are going to be parents!
I promise to keep my blog more up to date. It will get a little more exciting to read about someone else besides me and Jon! Stay tuned! :)
