Yep, still pregnant! Haha. I think it's true.

We swore we were going to wait until after the first trimester to announce it, and we haven't said anything on Facebook yet, but practically everyone knows. Your dad can hardly contain himself. I'm still in disbelief, so I just sort of announce it casually, mid-conversation, like I'm chatting about a new pair of shoes.

The other day, during Saturday night service for Liberty Offering at church, me, your Auntie Jen and Lindsay, Bekah and Katie D were standing in the hallway. In an effort to fill a silence, I announced to Katie and Bekah, "Hey, so, did you guys hear I'm pregnant?"

Shrieking ensued. They hadn't known, and watching their faces was the best thing ever. I may do that from here on out... no super suspenseful build-up, just a casual side conversation. And watch the jaws drop! Hahaha.

So, I'm sick. Not like, nauseous and can't eat sick (although, nothing sounds good right now), but "excruciating head cold but can't take any meds" sick, which might be worse. Dad's slept on the couch two nights in a row now, because I am such an avid nose blower. He doesn't get it. Last night, I stuck my face into a jar of Vick's vapor rub, just in the hopes of some quick relief.

I hate having a cold. There's nothing worse than the nagging agony of sinus pressure and a scratchy throat.

Although, labor is probably worse. I'll check back in 9 months.

Oh, and side note: went to the doctor last Wednesday - took a urine sample AND a blood test, just to confirm I was indeed pregnant... haha. I'm a doubter, clearly. I need the proof. Dr. Taggert called me back on Friday to tell me that my HCG levels are measuring at several weeks pregnant... so, I'm guessing I'm about 6 weeks along, which means you might be a Christmas baby!

That's pretty exciting. I'm gonna be a mom, THIS YEAR.

No. Way.
