If you could catch a glimpse of my grocery store receipt, you may have figured this out a little sooner. The addition of Cookie Crisp cereal, Pop Tarts and gallons of apple juice and milk would be a dead giveaway. ... I'm pregnant!
It's become an adventure for Ty to unload the groceries and discover what his crazy pregnant wife has brought home this week.
Let's see, what else has changed?
My idea of cooking is picking up a pizza from Papa Murphy's and exerting enough energy to unwrap it and bake it at 350.
I have become a sweatpants-wearing maven.
We eat cereal for dinner.
I could eat a hamburger (or two) every day of my life.
But, despite the dust my cookbooks are collecting, we're loving this journey. Our little nugget will be 12 weeks tomorrow, and we'll find out in a month if we're having a boy or a girl. We had a doctor's visit today and an ultrasound. The baby was doing somersaults ... rolling, flipping and moving its hands and feet ... already taking after Dad's excellent swim stroke. I saw some pretty stellar flip turns, as well. Just like a Jordan, already swimming in utero! It's OK, Mommy's already seeing the scholarship dollars.
Baby Jordan is due August 8. From here, I'm not really sure what all I'll share about this pregnancy. I probably will not be showing you my belly. I don't want to look at it most days, so I figured you would agree. I will tell you all about my cravings and the crazy things people say to me along the way. I've already had some wonderful gems thrown my way. It's funny what people consider complementary!
My greatest blessing is that I get to share this journey with some of my closest friends. In fact, I'm pregnant at the same time as HALF of my bridesmaids. My cousin and matron of honor Casey is having a girl in April. My best friend, LJ, is five weeks ahead of me. And another bridesmaid (who's name I will not disclose) is just three weeks behind me.
As they say, good things come in batches! Or, more likely, the good Lord knew I would be better off not going through this alone!
