The Big Announcement

Well, I have been keeping this secret way too long and it's been absolutely maddening not to be able to talk about it openly. It's not necessarily blog related, but it will certainly have an impact on my content from this point on.

If you are guessing that I am pregnant you would be correct! I will have lots of time to talk about all the details after this blog move is over. I have so much catching up to do you all are going to be sick of hearing about the pregnancy, but for now here is an a brief overview of where things are.

I am 12 weeks along.

The due date is November 24 (just days before Thanksgiving).

Now that I am officially in my 2nd trimester I am feeling so much better, but I had been super nauseous for the first 10 weeks.

It's still too soon to know the gender, but we do plan on finding out!

This wasn't a planned pregnancy, and it's a little scary. I am still really happy to be pregnant though. We knew we wanted to have more children and it will be nice to have another sibling for my kiddos that is still pretty close in age.

I had my first midwife appointment and they did not do a sonogram, but we did get to hear the heartbeat. All the blood tests came back great too.

Not a lot of people know yet and this is our first online announcement (a Messy Mom exclusive, wink wink), but now that the cat is out of the bag we'll be releasing our auto tune song on Facebook. I know I am such a nerd, but I've always wanted to do this and HEY, there's an app for that!


 I couldn't think of a better time to share the big news than in the middle of The [New] Messy Mom Launch Party Now the party is really getting started baby! Yeah!

Who's with me?
