A Little Gessel

I don't know the best way to do this, because I've never done it before. But Greg and I are having a baby. I'm 13 weeks along. My due date is August 16. So surprise!

We are very excited. I have been pretty sick. But I got some meds at my last appointment and hopefully that will improve our quality of life. (Mine because I felt so sick and Greg's because I don't cook much when I feel so sick.)

My mother has already promised to bring me a crib and baby stuff from my older sister. My mother-in-law confessed that she already has a box full of baby clothes that she's picked up while she's been waiting for grandchildren. This will be the first grandchild on Greg's side and they are also very excited.

We are now more motivated to start house hunting. Our apartment's lease is up at the end of April. We have decided where we want to live. We are pre-approved. Now we just need to find the perfect house.

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! Our babies will be so close together - just a few weeks apart! I hope you start feeling better soon. I started feeling better this last week - so maybe week 15 will be just as lucky for you! Hooray for babies!

Congratulations, Sarah and Greg!!! We are thrilled for you! Yes, it's no fun at all feeling sick during pregnancy, but soooo worth it. Daniel had to do ALL the dishes for 2.5 months straight because even just walking into the kitchen triggered my gag reflex. He ate a LOT of cold cereal for dinner. I forbade him from heating almost anything, be it in the microwave or on the stove. Maybe Greg could make a similiar sacrifice for you and the baby for the next couple weeks :) Right, Greg :)??? Oh, and please email me at swissklanae@yahoo.com b/c, believe it or not, I don't have your address (the byu.net one was nixed, wasn't it?)

Yay!! More friends for the great grand children! :) I hope you get feeling better! You should register on babycenter.com. It sends you emails every week on how your baby is developing! It is way fun! We are super excited for you!

Hooray! Awesome news for you. Good luck on the house hunting -- I love being a (new) home owner.

Ashlee and Bill said...

Oh Sarah!!! Congrats! I'm so excited for you. Let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do for you. Week 16 was the magic week for me, waking up and realizing I no longer felt sick was the best day ever!

Lesley said...

We are so happy for you guys. My little boy sure loves you, and I have always thought that you guys would be very fun parents. I can't wait to hear what you are having... my vote is 'boy'.

Good luck with the house-hunting!

Langdon and Raquel said...

Yay!!! When we saw you guys before Christmas, I was wondering, but didn't want to ask. I'm so happy for both of you! You're going to be the best parents. Your little baby is so blessed to be coming to you.

So where did you decide to buy? Good luck with the house search. Two exciting things at once. Congratulations.

Congrats! I hope that the meds work for you! Week 16 is always a magic week for me! It is no fun to be so sick!

Being a mother is such a blessing, children change your life but are so worth it! I can even say that with a 3 week old and little sleep! : )

Exciting about the house thing too! Hope that you stay in our ward! Good luck!

Brett and Stefani Garner said...

How FUN! Congratulations! Sorry about the sick part. Now if you guys will move a little closer so we actually see you and our kids can play together...that would be awesome!

Shea & Erin Gibbons said...

Congratulations! It sounds like everything is going your way, (except the sick part, but the baby, the house stuff, that all sounds wonderful!) Keep us posted! PS Our blog is sheanerin.blogspot blah blah blah.

Oh my soul you got a lot of comments. Hooray for babies. Also, Debbie is adorable. Of course she's been baby clothes shopping.

Second, you will have an adorable baby and I call first dibs on being its favorite aunt. Of course.

We're SO excited for you two!!! Kids are great! Just make sure to enjoy all the sleep you can get before the baby comes, because you won't ever get that much again.
