oh baby

The cat is finally out of the bag! As of today, I am 13 weeks pregnant. I can't believe I posting this in a public forum - after keeping it a secret for the last 9 weeks. But it is true & I have a growing belly to prove it. We went to the doctor for the third time on yesterday & got to hear the heartbeat of the baby. We were waiting for that to announce it. I feel like this is stream-of-consciousness right now. And so our secret is out.

Besides my sister, Emily, high schoolers have had the most enthusiastic response. I guess that makes sense, but it has been fun to see kids respond and be excited for us.

So I have a mix of emotions. Obviously excited, but also nervous, surprised...I feel overall excited, but the thought of something dependent on me, that is growing inside of me freaks me out a little bit. But it is good, I think.

Week 10 & 11 I had Philip take a picture of me because I felt like my belly was growing. It is....but isn't that obvious. This is week 11. I gave up on Week 12 & haven't taken one this week because I don't know that the bump is pronounced enough.

I guess this is just the beginning...
