guess my days of eating raw cookie dough are over...
well well well. i'm pretty sure a ton of people already know [my mom is really good at spreading news], but due to work-secret-keeping i couldn't blog about it until TODAY...so now i'm free! i'm having a baby!
baby wells [or baby dub. or zool, as the majority of my family calls it...as in, "there is no dana only zool" from ghostbusters...except there is "no lyndsey" when this baby is around, because i'm grumpy and sick and tired all the time] is due to arrive on the 4th of july, 2010 -- my favorite holiday.
at first i was super anxious about everything. but then a few weeks ago i had my first doctor's appointment and i saw the little jelly bean floating around and we heard it's heartbeat and it was all REAL. and we are so excited now.
baby dub is already the proud owner of a few gifts [thank you doris!] and a blog giveaway for some baby products, so we're well on our way. the past six weeks have been awful, feeling like i had the flu and having to be in bed by 930 p.m. every night, but i think i'm pulling out of it. i'm not showing at all yet -- in fact, i've lost seven pounds -- and the baby is currently the size of a lime [i LOVE the babycenter.com updates that tell you the corresponding fruit size of your baby every week!].
we're reading books and researching online enough to start feeling prepared...but let's be serious, i'm also freaking myself out over all the scary possibilities that could happen. i'm also avoiding lunchmeat and hot dogs [and raw cookie dough] but i REALLY want to eat them. i'm hoping for a girl, but b says he needs a boy. we'll see who wins.
and there you have it! if you noticed a drop off in blog posts, those started happening around the time i found out. i'm not good at keeping secrets, and since i didn't have much else to say besides baby stuff i just didn't post. now we should be back to regularly scheduled programming :)
