"Mommy and Daddy"....

Two of the sweetest words we are on our way to being known as!
On January 5th, after having a few days on just not feeling so well, and having ridiculously vivid strange dreams I caved and took a pregnancy test BEFORE actually missing my "monthly visitor."
4 days before to be exact. To my surprise after a brief 6 months of trying, the test was POSITIVE! I was at work, in the bathroom freaking out!

I tried to trick Mike into getting into a photobooth at Kmart by my work where I planned to share the news....the photobooth was gone....so my sweet Mikey learned he was going to be a daddy in the KMart Parking lot. He proposed at the mall...we're classy like that!

I will never forget the look in his eyes, even though he wasn't sure if he believed me or not!

That whole week I felt pretty sick but really was hungry A LOT...and for BEEF. It sickens me to think how much beef I actually consumed that week because now beef, or meat in general really, makes me gag to think about...so moving on.
After that first week I didn't experience much nausea and I was somewhat worried. Well, no need to be worried, between week 5 and 6 the nausea came rushing back.
I am now at week 9. Still battling the nausea but having only thrown up 3 times. My pants are getting snug and I've already purchased a couple new bras...oh my!

As much as Mikey and those that see me daily hear of my aches and yucks I am truly excited for this journey! According to all the online calculations my due date is September 16th. My first doctor's appointment is on the 19th and we'll see what he has to say. We will be happy with a healthy baby boy or girl. Some days I think there's a little sweet girl growing inside and sometimes I think it's a little stud growing!
On my side of the family this will be the 11th baby following Jill's baby boy in March! On the Simmons side our sweet little one will be the 7th. So at times you may hear me refer to our little muffin as 7-11....after-all...slurpees have yet to disappoint me...and baby!

And there you have it!

Congratulations! That is so exciting. You know I craved rotisserie chicken throughout my whole pregnancy. And now I hate it. Pregnancy is a strange beast. Good Luck!
