I am finally starting a blog. I have been telling myself for months that I should record everything going on with my pregnancy and 4 months into it, I'm finally getting around to it. It's going so fast!!
Well to start, I'm Stephanie. I am originally from Wichita, KS but moved to Liberty, MO to attend college. I met my wonderful husband through a mutual friend in 2004 and we got married on June 21st, 2008. As much as my parents wanted us to move back down to Wichita, we decided to live in Missouri and bought our first home in Lee's Summit in April of 2009. We have two dogs who are spoiled to death, a 4 year old Corgi and a 1 year old Lab/Airedale Terrier mix.
I have always wanted kids, but we wanted to graduate from college and get settled into a home before seriously thinking about starting a family. Finally, in December of 2009 we decided that it was time and we were pregnant in late April 2010!
We are so excited for this baby. This was our 7 week ultrasound to date the pregnancy and so it doesn't really look like much : ) This Thursday, we have our anatomy ultrasound where we will hopefully find out the gender. Mike is really hoping for a boy, but as long as it's healthy, I'll be happy either way!
Baby is due January 10th, 2011, which still seems extremely far away to me. I know it will be here before I know it, so I am just trying to enjoy every moment of being pregnant. My first trimester was very difficult due to extreme morning sickness and exhaustion, but the 2nd trimester has been much easier. I have muscle pain and am still tired quite a bit, but compared to the first 12 weeks, this is a dream. I'm excited to have a place to document all of the ups and downs of pregnancy and hopefully will be good about writing regularly! Oh and if you didn't get it from the name of my blog, I'm a librarian by day so there will inevitably be book reviews on my blog, just a warning!
