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!

oh man, I totally just laughed out loud and Lucy was totally scared. That's awesome. Make sure you post baby bump pictures.

Ugh, Mary, please no pictures with Jake cuddling your naked pregnant stomach. I haven't checked your blog in FOREVER and was so excited!! And I forgot you went on a cruise, so it was a fun surprise over and over again! And if your baby looks like that, I will not be telling you your baby is cute... :)
