week 7

Well, we're in week 7. I have been blessed to not deal with much to any sickness thus far. I have had plenty of nausea and tiredness, but no throwing up. Thank you Lord! I am so thankful for that. :)

I suppose that so far I have not really "felt" pregnant and it has all been so surreal that I am still grasping the fact that we are going to be parents. All of it is still so fresh and new in my heart and mind and I think I am still processing it slowly. :)

I, by no means, am a small girl and this week I have felt huge(er) than ever. Not sure if it is post thanksgiving, even though I was really pretty good over the holiday, or if I'm just bloating or water logged or what...I'm just feeling like a beached whale and it is frustrating. I just keep drinking water, trying to eat right and hopefully I will stay on the right track.

I got the Christmas decorations up this weekend and got to put our "Bb's" first ornament on the tree. My parents and sister got us each a new ornament this year. They are all so cute. I'll have to post pictures sometime. It got me thinking of all the sweet traditions my mother has had over the years and what kind of traditions I will start with our children, in our home. What crazy thoughts and expectations I have been having lately, ones I didn't think I would have for awhile.

I'm trying to decide when to start the baby room preparations, but have not had the time to really get in there and start cleaning out all of our office stuff. I suppose I will start the nesting process soon enough, so I am enjoying resting for now. :)

I'm thankful, blessed and truly excited about all the Lord has in store for us.
Love you all,

6 weeks

So, we are 6 weeks along. We had a sono today and got to see a tiny little fetal pole and we even saw the flutter of a heart. :) beautiful! We're getting more excited everyday and hope to really start getting some things cleaned out of the office and stuff this weekend. I can't start too early right? haha Time is going to start flying by.

I'm feeling a bit yucky, most of the time, but have been eating healthy and trying to rest a lot. :)
Soaking up as much sleep as I can get right now is high on my priority list!!
I'll post the sono pictures soon!
Thank you for the prayers.
Blessings,

Week 5

Well, for those of you keeping up with our blog, we had some more bloodwork done, just to see my progress of hormones increasing. They are increasing "beautifully", my nurse said. :) We found out so early along that they were wanting to make sure we are still pregnant and progressing. We have another sonogram on Thursday afternoon. I'm excited about this one, because I have no doubts that we are pregnant and God is truly performing a miracle inside of me.

I think we are going to start cleaning out the office this week, so we can clean out the entire room completely and get it ready to host a little one next summer. We are still early in the process, but you can't start preparing early enough right? :)

Thank you all for your love and support through all of this and I will try my best to keep this updated instead of through email or facebook.
much love,

Shaina

A New Beginning

Well, I suppose for now, this blog is going to turn into an update central for all of our family and friends to see the progress of our....

NEW LITTLE ONE. :)

Yes, we found out we are expecting and had our first sonogram today, to see how far along we are. We are not far along at all. :) Maybe 4 and a half weeks. We will go back on the 18th for a second sonogram to see if we have made any progress.

There are so many things that are about to change and we thank you for your prayers and support through it all! Keep checking back for updates on all that is going on with us!

God is so good and we are so thankful to Him for this new adventure He has us on!

Nick and Shaina
