The post that took forever to get here!

What seems like forever ago, we found out we were pregnant. I avoided posting about it until our first visit to the doctor, so we could make sure everything was okay. That first visit was today. I'm extremely happy to say that everything is okay. Baby Jackson is almost eight weeks old and mama is healthy and happy other than the dreaded morning sickness which has plagued me since week four. It's been so difficult not to share this exciting news here, where I share everything. My recent lack of posting has been a result of sickness, fear that I would spill the beans too soon and something would go wrong, and a general feeling of mind numbness.
Even with the ultrasound photos as proof, this all seems so unreal. We had planned on having a baby this year, but hadn't planed on it happening this soon. Either way, we're very excited, nervous, and every other emotion you can imagine. I'll be looking forward to the sound advice that all the other mama's around here have to share, and I'll be paying close attention to Kristen's pregnancy and birth adventure since I'll be following close behind.

I'm so excited for you! (Seriously I can't wipe the grin off my face!)

You are already a wonderful mom and friend; this baby is very lucky.

:) Email anytime (not that I have great advice--it's my first time too), but I can commiserate when needed and offer any help I can.
