Jack and I are expecting!! I'm about 11 weeks along and we are due in June :) We hadn't planned on having a baby this soon in the marriage (we though five years sounded about right ha ha), but in October when it came time to go pick up another Nuva Ring I was hesitant for some reason. So I put it off a day...and another day... and on the third day when Jack brought it up I burst into tears. So some conversation and a blessing later, we decided to forego the birth control. The very next month we were staring at a pregnancy test with a big, fat YES on it. Whew!
It has been a rough 11 weeks. I've never been so sick for so long! Jack has been the most wonderful husband in the world. The second week I ended up in the hospital with dehydration from throwing up and had to lay in a bed hooked to IVs. He sat with me for three hours and read The Hunger Games the whole time aloud to me. Since then, I've lost about 13 pounds since pretty much all I can eat is Rice Krispy cereal and some fruits. Jack cleans the house, takes Tucker out, and brings me whatever I need. Love him :) the beautiful blessings from him help so much and I am finally starting to eat some normal food again the past couple of days and get out a bit. We have had sooo much support from family, especially Carol, who calls to check in every day and see how I'm feeling and what she can do.
We couldn't be more excited or feel more blessed. We love talking incessantly about what the baby will look like and how we will parent. This Thanksgiving week I can confidently say that I have never felt more blessed or thankful in my entire life. I'm so so so thankful for Jack and the priesthood he holds, for both of our families, and for this tiny spirit that will soon be a part of our family.
