But that's not the news. The news is...
HANS AND I ARE EXPECTING!!!!
|Our announcement photo. We announced on Halloween.|
Yes, this was planned. Completely and totally.
Yes, we're going to find out the sex.
Yes, we already have names picked out. Please! We picked those out over a year ago.
And while we really don't care either way, I'm kind of hoping for a boy. I'm not sure I'll be able to handle girl drama! Still, though, as long as our baby is healthy, then I'm a happy mama.
We had our first doctor's appointment today. Everything looks good. The heartbeat is strong (171 bpm), and for the first time in my life I looked at an ultrasound and saw a baby, not just a sea monkey.

So, I think that covers all the really big stuff. Oh, except for one thing. The doctor did say I'm clear to run the Richmond marathon, as long as I listen to my body and eat enough. So, YAY! I don't think I'll have any time goals for this one. I just want to finish!
