It's Baby Time!

Yes. We are having a baby, and it's a BOY!

When is he due? We aren't exactly sure. First we were told August 27th, then we were told somewhere around September 15th - 17th. We have another ultrasound in a few weeks that should give us the exact date. I just keep telling people we are due in the middle of September.

Do I feel sick? Not anymore. I felt fine until I went to the doctor and he told me I was only 8 weeks along instead of 12. I think he drugged me or jinxed me - because that whole next week I told Jake I was only doing this once - I didn't feel like myself at all, and I had to have a plastic grocery bag with me wherever I went just in case I lost my cookies. I feel normal now, which makes me understand why people do this more than once. It isn't THAT bad...I'm just a wimp when it comes to sickness. I always cry when I'm sick - no matter what. Just ask my mom.

Have I had any weird cravings? Not really. I eat everything I ate before, I just let myself eat more of it. I like thin mints, or grasshopper cookies. ALOT. I liked them before too, but I enjoy more of them than I did before. There has only been one time when I ordered chicken enchiladas at a restaurant, and I tried one bite and stopped eating them because I thought they were disgusting (normally I LOVE chicken enchiladas). I had water for dinner - with chips and salsa.

I took the liberty of using a program online to see what our baby boy will look like:



I am praying that our little boy doesn't actually turn out to look like this.
Jake says he looks like Shrek - I laughed out loud in my office by myself when I read that text.

We are excited!
