Baby on the way!

Dear first trimester,

I hate your stinking guts. You make me vomit. You're scum between my toes.

Love, Holly.

OK seriously, I am 11 1/2 weeks right now and I am literally counting down the days until I am officially out of this. According to the masses, once the second trimester comes along, everything will be great. I CANNOT WAIT! I think if you can come up with a symptom of pregnancy that isn't enjoyable...I've had it. However, they are slowly fading and I am definitely starting to feel better. Including getting out of the awkward growth stage where everyone is unsure if you're are pregnant or just making one too many trips to in and out lately. Sad to say I think I might fit in both of those categories.

Finding out I was pregnant was really exciting and almost surreal. I immediately started thinking about all of the fun things we would be able to do- pick a name, buy clothes, decorate a room, have a shower, watch the baby move around, and just get ready to be parents- and then I realized I couldn't do any of that for quite some time. The first few months are just spent hoping you will feel better sometime soon and waiting to find out what you are having before you can actually get to all of those fun things.

Names- Discuss these early on! It's going to take a while to make a decision on this one. I actually went through an entire website of baby names (girls and boys) a-z and was shot down on every name that I loved. SAD. SOOOOO, Ive come to terms with the fact that all of our kids will just have numbers; no names.

In all actuality, Jon and I are VERY excited to be parents and all yucky things aside, being pregnant is such a privelege. And we can't wait to find out what we are having!!!
