Heyyyyyy! Where have you been all my life? What’s it been … like two months?!
Well, lots has happened since I last wrote.
I guess the biggest news is that I’m pregnant! I know what you’re thinking because it’s the first thing everybody asks, and the answer is … we weren’t trying and we weren’t not trying. We just … were. Our baby is due September 17th, so I just passed 12 weeks. We just this week started telling people. We decided to wait to share the news until 12 weeks for two reasons: 1. I have heard that the first three months are the biggest risk of miscarriage, and 2. I don’t feel pregnant. At all. After having so many friends get horribly sick throughout their first few months of pregnancy, I just assumed I would have the same experience. So although the test I took told me I was indeed pregnant, I haven’t felt any different and until we actually saw the sonogram last week, I wasn’t 100% convinced. I guess I’m a lucky one.
As we share the news with people, we’re getting more and more excited about it. It took a while for it to sink in. And actually, sometimes I still forget. I guess those days when I forget I’m pregnant are numbered, huh?
Speaking of being pregnant, there must be something in the water at Compassion because every third woman of childbearing age seems to be pregnant. I’m not joking. Pregnancy is very contagious, apparently.
In other news, our house is under contract! We put it on the market a couple months ago and for over a month did not have one single showing. Then, out of the blue, we had a showing, then three showings in one day and then an offer. The inspection is this weekend, and as long as all goes well, we’re hoping to close on April 15. And that means we have to get moving on finding a house to buy! This whole coordination of selling and buying a house is complicated and it stresses me out. Thankfully, we have some very good friends who have offered to help us out if we have lag time.
Chris left yesterday for Kenya with a group of bloggers. I’m very glad he got to go on the trip. He loves Kenya and he gets to see Lerionga again. But I have to say, for some reason him being gone on this trip is harder on me than normal. I’m not sure why. But I’m literally counting the days until he’s back. (Sheesh. Who am I and what have I done with my independent self?)
Anyway, it’s good to be back on the blog. Lots of big things going on in the Giovagnoni household these days. Hold on and buckle your seatbelts! I think we’re in for a wild ride.
Congratulations!!! We're so excited for you! Obviously, we like being parents – or we would've stopped after Nathaniel! I was never sick while pregnant either. I always felt kind of guilty but after enough horror stories I learned to just be thankful! Oh, and pregnancy hormones are whack! Be prepared for uncontrollable emotion, and warn your hubby!
Glad you are back and glad for all the great things that are going on in life! Have I told you yet that you'll be the cutest with a baby belly? You will. Congrats.
Congrats on all fronts….This should be an amazing year! PS-Glad the blog is back up and running.
Congratulations! We are so happy for you two. Emily was never sick through her pregnancy either, some are blessed that way. Your last four weeks you most likely will be feeling very pregnant and will want your precious little to be out and into your arms.
Wow, Becky! Congrats!!! You will be such a fun mommy. And your kid is sure to have a cool name. 🙂
