Well....

I have dreamed of writing this post a million times.  Sometimes I even had it down, word for word, in my brain.  But now that the time to write it has finally come, I'm so overwhelmed with emotions (joy, excitement, and terror, to name a few) that I can't even be creative about it.  So I'll just go ahead and tell you what we found out on Christmas day and actually started believing when we saw a heartbeat this morning:

I'm pregnant.

Yep, there's a baby in there.  An embryo, actually.  But a healthy-looking blob of an embryo with its heart all a-flutter and everything.  I'm 6.5 weeks along, putting the technical due date somewhere around September 2.  I'll give you more details later, along with my (extensive) plan of care, but for now, let's just revel in the news...there's another Itty Bitty Hill in the mix!  Though there will always only be one Itty Bitty...so maybe this one is Eensy Weensy Hill.  Let's try that on for a few days.  :)  Please join us in praying for a very loooong and healthy pregnancy.

  6. I am BEYOND happy for you and John and for Becca to have a sibling! I will pray that your pregnancy is long and as "uneventful" (a positive thing in this case) as possible! I'm doing cartwheels inside (if I tried to do a real one, I might break something. Either in my body or around me.) Congrats!!!!
