And baby makes three

Well, I suppose by now you already know there is going to be a baby Christians in November. We're thrilled, and nervous, and scared all at once. I am, at least. The news brought with it a flood of emotions, and it brought back a lot of memories from January. When we lost our first pregnancy it was extremely painful emotionally, but I feel this baby is an answered prayer, and definitely a gift from God. I know that no matter how long God chooses to let me carry this baby, it is a blessing, and I will not ever think otherwise.

We have told all our family members, and are preparing to make the big announcement on facebook. This is a sign of the times, I suppose, as it seems rather common to make a big deal about the facebook announcement.

I guess I should post a bit about the baby, and how things are going so far. Firstly, I'm due November 22nd. I'm feeling okay so far. Morning sickness hasn't been too bad yet, just a lot of nausea and feeling gross at night. I'm always tired, but that's normal. I am trying to take it easy during the first trimester, just to be on the safe side (and I've noticed there are physical repercussions to pushing myself too hard).

I've seen the doctor twice already and have another appointment this week. She says everything looks great, and we're getting ready to meet the OB. Here in Canada things are different, and I do prenatal exams with my family doctor in the beginning, and then switch over to my OB later on. I still want a midwife, but it's hard to get one here, and I haven't been told whether or not there is space for me yet. My first ultrasound is on May 10th (I'll be 12 weeks), and I am very anxious to see the baby!

Well, that's it for now. I'm hoping to do weekly updates so everyone near and far can stay connected throughout this pregnancy.
