Jon and I are expecting our first child!!
I'm exactly 14 weeks pregnant today and we're SO thrilled to finally be sharing the news with everyone! We decided to keep it a "secret" (only family and very close friends have known until now) just until we were out of the first trimester--- to be on the safe side :) It was VERY hard to keep it to ourselves and its starting to feel much more real, now that we're able to share about it.
Unfortunately, like almost every other woman I know, the first trimester was fairly brutal. Right around the 6 week mark, the nausea/throwing up and extreme exhaustion hit. I not only had "morning sickness," but ALL DAY sickness from week 6 'til about week 11 or 12. It also didn't help getting the flu right around that time too. I'm still experiencing some morning sickness but it has tapered off a lot compared to how bad it was prior to the 3 month point. I'm really hoping that this second trimester will prove to be better than the first, as I'm promised it will be :)
Our due date is June 22 which means that unless the baby is very late, we'll have another June birthday in the Esau family. Jon, his Dad, his brother-in-law Erich, and his nephew Konrad, are all in June. So we'll either be adding another boy birthday just to take the count up to 5, or, we'll have a girl to even out the score a bit :) We've decided to wait until the delivery day to find out the gender of the baby and will be overjoyed, no matter which way things go. As long as he/she is healthy and doesn't weigh too much, we'll be thrilled ;) Though I think the weight issue matters more to me than Jon :)
