Ho-Hum Summer

HA! Yeah, right! I haven't blogged for a while, but the three of you that read this now know why! I'm now 12 weeks pregnant (almost 13!), and I am greatly anticipating the end of the first trimester. I am absolutely thrilled to have survived it as there were times that I thought it would do me in! Matt and I have already had lots of fun telling our parents, families, friends, talking about names, finding a crib (already!), hearing the heartbeat at 10 weeks and an ultrasound, too. I have a pregnancy journal, so I enjoy keeping that up to date.

Our (amazing, incredible, so-good-to-me-I-don't-deserve-it) friends threw us a surprise baby shower last night. And that was definitely a surprise! I wasn't having a very good weekend, so when they sprung it on me...well, I was very overwhelmed by their kindness. I don't have any pictures yet since we didn't have our camera, but they took some, so hopefully I can post some soon. They wanted to throw one that Matt could come to, which I thought was so sweet. They had a baby food identifying contest for the guys, and everyone guessed the birthdate, weight, and sex of the baby. Most of the girls guessed it would be a girl...most of the guys guessed we'll have a boy. :-) It will be fun to see if anyone guessed right!

We have a few calm weeks, and then we will have some traveling fun at the end of September and middle of October! I'm excited to visit my sisters and celebrate Hannah's birthday in October. Hopefully, I'll be showing by then, too! The way I'm eating, it shouldn't be a problem.

Hooray for the second trimester! Have I told you how excited I am for you two? :)

I knew about the surprise shower heehee YAY!

And you know what? I remember during my first pregnancy reading that during the first trimester the mother's body uses up the same amount of energy growing the baby as if she were climbing Mt. Everest! I found that interesting. And it made sense because I was so tired. I wish I could remember what book I read that in~was it "What to Expect When You're Expecting," not sure.

Are you sharing the names you're thinking of? Or keeping them a secret? YAY I'm so excited for you!

Ann, I don't think our names are a big secret. Maybe I should ask Matt before I tell people. :-)
