11 weeks

Well, our 11th week is about half way over. We went to the doctor today for a check up and to hear the heart beat! We got to heart it and it was pounding away! We are so blessed and thankful that so far everything has been smooth and we are both healthy. My blood pressure, glucose, etc was all fine and so I am encouraged that all I am doing to stay healthy and relaxed is paying off. :)

I have so much I want to do around the house that I don't even know where to start. Maybe if I wait another week or so, the energy will kick in and I will get things into gear. We are getting a new office desk and are going to begin getting our new "tiny office" put together in our utility area of the house...so that our old office can be turned into a nursery. exciting and tiring at the same time!

I have started to sell Mary Kay. So far I am loving it and even just getting started has been a growing time for my faith and my personal growth. If you or anyone you know would like to try some mary kay or already does and needs product, give me a call! I'd be more than happy to help you! Selling mary kay and getting my business running will help allow me to stay at home when this sweet baby comes along! Prayers are appreciated. :) and sales. :)

Christmas was great this year and we both realized how different next year will be with a sweet 5 month old in our life. We are still trying to get it in our head that we are having a baby...it is still so unreal sometimes. :)

I have been blessed to not be sick during this first trimester and for that I am so deeply grateful to the Lord. I have been exhausted but have managed to still muster energy when I need it. :)


Question of the week for all of you moms who happen to read this....

Did y'all do any of the genetic testing and why did you or didn't you?
(we are praying about it, but strongly feel that we will not do any of the testing, but I would love feedback please!) thank you much!

Hey friend!
We didn't do the genetic testing with the two boys and I
Just signed the papers to not do it with this little one. We decided that regardless of any "issues" a baby is a gift from the Lord. And that if we were chosen to have a baby with special needs, then we would find out soon enough. Does that make any sense? On the flip slide, I've heard of people that wanted to be prepared/educated to best martens babies specific needs!
I know you will listen and follow! And that's tgebest thing you can dp for YOUR baby!!! :)
I'm so excited to be experiencing this with...both through blog and expecting as well!! :)
