So, remember how I’m a little behind with blogging? Well, today I’m officially 18 weeks pregnant, but we took this picture last week. Just thought it was time we share the great news via blog for those who don’t know yet. The due date is April 18 and no we don’t know gender yet, but we will find out in two weeks. Darin “knows” it’s a boy. He even had an awesome dream about our baby the other night and got to hear his laugh! He’s such a visionary man. =D Who knows…we’ll take a boy or a girl.
Pregnancy’s been pretty great for me…I haven’t hardly been sick at all and I’ve been able to keep up with work and school. It’s been fun to feel the baby moving around more. I heard several kicks while the doctor was listening for the heartbeat this week and I actually felt one last night. Incredible! At first being pregnant all seemed so surreal to me, but now that I have a little “pooch” and know there’s movement in there, it’s so exciting!!
For those who are wondering, this is the real reason why Darin didn’t apply for dental school this year. We realized be could start our family sooner if he could stay home while I completed my fellowship year (working full-time) to get certified as a speech/language pathologist and then he will start dental school and I’ll be home! Our plan actually worked! He’s really excited to be Mr. Mom for a while before he’s engrossed in school again.
