Hi everyone! Sorry that I had not posted much lately. The holidays and braving the cold winter has taken a bit more out of me than I'd like to admit.
However, I am now in my 12th. week of pregnancy, and so far, everything seems to be going well. I've not had any morning sickness, and my weight gain has been minimal, which is great because even before I got pregnant, I was already overweight.
About the only really noticeable difference in me (at least that I can feel) is that I now tend to get tired more easily....growing a baby is work!
It's way to early still to know the gender of the baby, but I think as long as the baby is happy and healthy, we'll be happy as can be!
Up until week 11, the only person in my side of the family who knows about this was my sister, and she had managed to keep a really tight lip on everything. By the beginning of week 12, I just let it rip and told the rest of my family (surviving members include my uncle, aunt, and stepmom.). My aunt was a bit in shock but by her second e-mail (she is currently traveling abroad.) she was sounding happy about it. Maybe this baby is the ticket to my family finally getting a piece of good news after the past 3-4 years of people passing away.), and accepting my GF.....I mean, we've been together longer than most of the marriages that I've seen!
I"ll post ultrasound pictures as I can get them (the first few weren't that clear). Everyone please stay warm! (This has been one of the coldest winters that I can remember!) I will update more as events warrant!
