Something is Happening in November

Clint and I are expecting!  I am 9 weeks along right now.  If feels like 9 months already!  hehe....not really. 

We learned on March 11.  I had been feeling very dizzy for a few days.  I really did not think I was pregnant, but something told me to buy a test after work.  Instantly, the test was positive.  It did not hit me for a few days after.  Even thought we wanted this very badly, I was pretty overwhelmed by the thought of having to care for another human being in less than a year.  One day, I was the happiest ever.  The next, I was a stressed out mess.  Luckily, it has passed for now and we are both happy as a clam! 

We decided to wait to tell our families until after our first appointment.  To our surprise, they wanted to preform an ultrasound, where we also heard the heart beat.  It was pretty amazing.  They actually thought I was farther along than I really was.  Turns out I was only 7 weeks along at the appointment. 



We decided to surprise my parents by taking them out to dinner for their anniversary.  After we ordered our food, we presented them with a card.  Inside the card was signed from us, our furry babies, and Baby Viers.  My mom just gave us a look and said, "What is with the Baby Viers?"  Clint told her we are expecting.  She froze for a moment and looked at me then looked at Clint, then me again.  Then came the tears.  After she scarfed down her food, she ran over to Kate Spade and bought the first diaper bag she saw.  There was no stopping her. 

This one to be exact


So far so good, though.  I have been lucky enough to not develop much morning sickness (knock on wood).  Just a little nauseous at times.  I am mainly tired.  Naps are a must!  Meals are not so fun right now either.  I hate cooking right now and certain foods just make me gag.  For example, I love red peppers!  Right now, the word makes me want to puke!  I can't even look at what I just typed!  My biggest craving is slurpee's.  After I have one, I feel like a million bucks!  I try not to have them often though because of the sugar content.

I apologize for not being around much lately.  For about three weeks now, I have just been so exhausted.  It's amazing how it just hits you.  I have been dying to show you projects we have completed around the house and cannot wait to update you on our bundle of joy!  Bare with me right now...YEAH!

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY! Congratulations! I'm thrilled for you guys! (Also, I'm not quite done growing this baby yet, but I'd say the first tri was definitely the hardest, so hang in there! It's amazing how completely exhausted you are, isn't it?)

Congratulations! I can't imagine what a roller coaster of emotions that would be. It's always interesting to hear about how pregnancy affects different women. It's going to be a busy few months! :)
