The Big Reveal: Live it with me

So, I sorta kinda snapped out of it today-when I leaned over to pick up my bible off my bedside table and threw up instead. Well, not right then but I pretty much barely made it to the toilet.

And that's what you've been missing for the past month and a half.

I'm not entirely sure why I decided to keep it from my blog for so long, I mean, at first it was so I could tell our parents in more personal forms of communication other than an internet post ( I think everyone appreciated this. ha.) ....but then, once that was taken care of...along with a lot of other wonderful people who celebrated/were shocked, right along with us...I dont know. I don't know why I held back from blogging about it.

Until today. Today, I'm blogging about being pregnant/knocked up/with child/preggars/on the nest/expecting/ a bun in the oven/ riding the baby train.

Its kind of crazy that after blogging about college and about being out in the real world, getting a job, getting married, and countless other big changes I would now come to this-something that I hesitated to blog about.
When I was pondering it, I think the only other thing that I haven't blogged about in a very timely manner would have to be when I first started having feelings for Brett, but that was mostly because I knew he was reading my blog at the time and I didn't want to give anything away. So, that brings us to this little piece of news. I have been keeping this "little" secret from my blog for...oooooh....8 weeks.

That's right kids. I'm 10 weeks pregnant. Sooo mark your calendars ( in pencil) for the first week of August and get ready for some major changes in the Wilson household.


So, I kept it a secret a long time. And I was basically waiting to tell my blog that I was pregnant after I had my first ultra sound, you know...the one where they prove to you in no uncertain terms that you've got a little person in your tummy. But, that's not until next week, so why the early reveal after all this time? Well, that takes us back to me throwing up over my bible this afternoon...

You guys have been missing out. You've missed the Christmas where I spent MOST of my time not moving...and the other half of my time hunched over the toilet. You've missed my new bed time: 8pm. You've missed the New Years that Brett and I spent in bed...reading. And you've missed my discovery of peppermints as the best quick fix for nausea, and my wonderful ex-roommate/nurse Lindsay sending me contraband hospital remedies, and you've missed my darling husband being SO INCREDIBLY USEFUL and THOUGHTFUL you'd probably start calling him Prince Charming if you saw it, you've missed my new inability to do pretty much ANYTHING during a given day, and you've missed my new found hatred for having to stand up during a church service. You've missed my current love of PB&Js and how for a two week span all I wanted was apples ( I don't like apples normally)....

And to be honest, if next week, something goes horribly wrong and there is no little heart beat in my tummy I'd want to tell you about it. And I'd want you to know about this past month and a half so you'd know just what a journey this has already been...AND if next week I'm more excited about this pregnancy then I have been thus far...well, then-you'll know why!


So there you go. The big reveal. Now lets all count down the days until next Thursday together. ;-)

Silly military doctors. I can't wait for the next visit. The heart beat will amaze you!

Love ya,
Mama

You're in for a treat! I was never so thankful for throwing up until after I heard that little heart beat...somehow made me feel like I was really accomplishing something each time I ran for the bathroom. Plus, everyone says that the more sick you are, the better chance that you'll have a great pregnancy...and the wives-tale is that you'll have a little girl :-)

Our little bundles of joy will be about 10 weeks apart...how fun! I can't wait to hear all about your pregnancy. Congrats!!!

Congratulations, Ab-flex! Woohoo! :)

Rachael said...

Wow! That's so AWESOME! I'm so excited for you guys! And I'm sure you've heard this before, but the tiredness and sickness normally does seem to get better around the 4th month...hopefully that will be no different for you.

Congratulations!! You and Brett are going to be amazing parents and have an absolutely adorable baby, obviously. :-)

Amanda said...

Congratulations lady! You will for sure make beautiful babies!

I certainly can't hold it over your head for keeping your secret so long -- I was 14 weeks along before we even told our parents about this pregnancy. It made the pregnancy seem to go by faster though! Now, I only have 14 weeks to go. :o)

Congrats again!

Hehe...It's been so long since I read your blog, the first thing I wanted to do when I came back to your blog was to see how you broke the news to your blog world of friends...=)
I hope you are coping ok with all the ups and downs...BTW...I have just submitted a paper to present at a conference in Montreal...now we could start sending up those request that I get accepted to said conference and find other conferences in North America to attend in the same trip that allow me to get the funding I need to also squeeze in a trip to visit you that would be...wait for it... in August!!! +)
