Oh my - I've gained an inch!

Okay - I am now 9 weeks along in my pregnancy. I am getting a belly that I cannot keep sucked in anymore! I weigh and measure myself every Sunday. My beginning measurement and weight was 29" and 139lbs. I am NOW - 30" and 141.2lbs!!! Just last week I was 29 1/4" and 140.8lbs. So I have gained 3/4" in just 1 week!!! I am growing so fast!!! Well, I mean, our baby is growing fast! My first appointment is December 10th at 9:30am. So wish me luck, or pray for me, pray for our child, or whatever!! haha!!! I am getting so anxious to see and hear our little baby for the first time. Having a life being created within you has got to be the most amazing thing ever. I am so blessed. And amazed at God's awesome power.

Telling Ryan's Grandma Caylor & Aunt Becky

Here is our latest video! I believe we have told everyone we can tell now!! Geesh! This is Ryan's Grandma Caylor and Aunt Becky. Ryan's mom told us they were all going to be at Donato's so we thought it would be perfect to just show up like we were getting pizza and just happened to run into them. I had tried to figure out some sort of way to tell them and earlier in the day I had attempted to suck in my belly...but the belly didn't exactly go away. So I thought I would show them what I can do with my belly and see if they can figure out why it is like it is:

So what do you think?!? That was fun! :) Now that everyone has been told I think I will now give you updates on how I am feeling and doing and post some pictures on here. Sounds like fun! :)

Telling Ryan's mom

Hello everyone!! So this past Sunday we met up with Ryan's mom - Debbie. Our plans were to meet up after Church to have lunch. Well, surprise surprise!! She showed up at Church! We had not yet told her about our exciting news...but EVERYONE in the Church knew since our Minister announced it to everyone during service the previous week. So, I'm sure you can imagine our nervousness that someone was going to come up to us, right in front of Debbie, and say..."So how ya feelin'?? How's the pregnancy going?? Any morning sickness yet??" Yeah...we were terrified! Luckily I was able to kind of inform those around us that Debbie didn't know yet so no news was spilled - and we bolted out of there as soon as service ended!

At lunch, Ryan had the bright idea to act like he was looking for some picture on our camera so he could get the video started. At that point this is where the video starts:

Yup...she's excited! And can't wait for us to tell her sister and mom (our Aunt Becky and Grandma Caylor). They don't know yet so....shhh!!!! We plan on telling them in a couple weeks.

We also have yet to tell our other Aunt and Ryan's dad. So...shhh!!! We will tell them when we are ready!!
