We're having a....

It's been awhile since I posted on my little blog and there's a reason... I have had NO energy due to being 14 weeks PREGNANT!! Yes, Darrin and I are adding to our little family! It's so exciting to finally say it now!  We found out at five weeks and it's still crazy that I have a little bean growing inside of me. I've waited for this moment since I was a child and it's unreal that I will be a Mom by Christmas time!
My first trimester is exactly how I pictured it... Sick:( My Mom and my sister were both the same way when they were pregnant and I am just like them. Guess it runs in the family! Now, that I'm into my second trimester, I'm getting better and feeling more energy. Darrin's been so caring and understanding of how I have been feeling. He's taken on roles that I can't do and doesn't complain. He's an incredible husband and he will be an amazing father.

I just went maternity shopping the past two weekends because I'm starting to show. Things are getting a little snug;) We had our thirteen week appointment last week and heard the strong heartbeat. We also switched to a wonderful midwife in my practice because my original doctor left. We are so happy with her and she was so informative, which we need! We don't get another ultrasound until we know the sex, which is in six more weeks! We have our instincts on the gender, but who really knows? We just can't wait!

Since my last blog post in April, we haven't done too much since I haven't been the life of the party lately, but some things we have done:
-Beginning of May, we flew to CA to tell my family and friends the exciting news in person!
-Told my Dad at his 70th Birthday and will never forget his reaction;)
-We celebrated our one year anniversary!
-Finally had a small housewarming party.
-Maddie turned one and has been loving swimming in the lake a lot. She's a huge water dog!
-Lot's of positive changes at my work.
-I have been doing more freelance design work at night.
-My Mom retired after 32 years of teaching fourth grade! I'm so proud of her. 

We have a lot of projects to start this summer. I'm surprised that I haven't done any baby planning, but hope this trimester will be the time to get things done.

So, that's our exciting news! We are so happy and looking forward to the next six months until we meet baby Quesenberry!
