10 weeks today!

May 27th, 2010

Getting closer every day to being out of the 1st trimester....only a couple more weeks! I will be relieved to be past that point, but of course, we know better than anyone that there is no "safe" stage unfortunately.

We have told our families and many of our friends. It's so much fun to share such amazing news! We are blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives and everyone is very happy for us and have given us nothing but love and support! There's nothing better than being surrounded by love from the people that matter the most. This baby will definitely be welcomed into this world with open arms.

I've still been very lucky in that the nausea hasn't caused any actual vomiting. Not that being nauseous all the time is fun either, but I absolutely hate throwing up, so I'm glad that hasn't been an issue. I've been craving lots of fruit, and orange juice seems to be my best friend! Oh and sleep....I can't get enough of it. I've been so tired. I'm hoping the fatigue passes soon because I need my energy!

We are headed home for the long Memorial Day weekend. I can't wait to see our families! Hopefully the weather is nice because I'm hoping to sit outside and get some color. There's nothing too attractive about a pasty white fat lady haha!

Still praying and thanking God for our blessings every day! Goodnight for now ;)

Mother's Day

May 9th, 2010

What does a person like me say about Mother's day? Looking past the fact that I was at work all day and didn't really get to "celebrate" anyway....Mother's day is somewhat of a bittersweet day for me. I would love to have little Gabriel here in my life every day, but a day like today exemplifies that feeling even more. I am a mom and I always will be, but the past few years it's been in a different way than most. I've been a mommy to an angel! Well, this year was a little different. I'm an expecting mommy! I'm so happy to be pregnant and I can't wait to have our little one here in our arms!

Mother's day wasn't a complete loss though this year. My parents surprised me by driving to my work to see me. It's a 4 hour drive one way for them. What amazing people they are! It was so great to see them. It definitely made my day! I'm so lucky to have such wonderful parents. And I was so happy to get to see my mom on Mother's day.

Wishing all the moms of the world a very happy Mother's matter what kind of mommy you are! ;)

6 Weeks!

April 29th, 2010

I'm feeling fat and bloated. I'm always tired and my boobs are killing me. Nausea has kicked in but I haven't thrown up at I'm happy about that. Yep, I'm definitely pregnant! I won't complain though because I'm so excited I can barely contain myself.

I took my first "belly" picture this week and I look like I should be 12 weeks rather than only 6. I've heard people say that most people start showing sooner the second time around which would make sense. I didn't start showing with Gabriel until I was 5-6 months along. But for now, I'm going to go with I'm just bloated right now. I can't wait for my real baby bump to come along though! YAY

I kept my pregnancy a secret last time around but this time it's so much harder. I want to tell everyone I see! I think I will be telling the rest of my family on Sunday at my nephew's birthday. And I will probably tell a few of my closest friends. It's so hard to not just shout it out!

I just keep praying everyday that Baby Hermanson keeps growing and remains healthy! All I want for Christmas is my little one :)
