Our secret is out.
So, Shaun and I are pregnant. Because we don't have insurance...we have yet to see a doctor and are not sure on the REAL due date. In our attempts to buy additional insurance until Shaun's starts up in January. AND...we make too much to apply for State pregnancy coverage. We'll see. I'm not eating much sugar at all and trying to eat healthy in hopes of keeping the baby healthy--and reducing chances of gestational diabetes. (Which makes the baby larger--and more difficult to deliver--and many other issues come up too.) (Diabetes runs in our families.)
So, back to the due date--it may be as soon as June 5th, or as late as July 5th. I don't want to explain the details in a blog as to why we think this--but we didn't test positive until October 23. We're both REALLY excited and looking forward to the growth of our family. Since I don't know the due date...maybe I'll have to get two widgets for the blog--so, I can see the range of possible growth. Baby's usually come 2 weeks late anyway, right? I'm just hoping the little kid doesn't interrupt my birthday on July 20, 2009 to make an appearance. That would be distracting for my guests. But really, we'll be excited whatever happens. I can't say we are prepared for everything, but we know that Heavenly Father is always directing us toward good opportunities and challenges.
AND--for those of you who think it's going to be a girl, like me, you're on my rooting team; and those who thinks it's going to be a boy--you're now on Shaun's team. (Please note that this is all in loving jest as we will be happy either way.) YEAH! A baby is coming! Pray that it will be healthy and happy...and not make me feel sick please.By the way, we have the names (boy & girl) picked out--and they both start with an "E." So, we're calling it "Baby E" until we find out the sex.
Please let us know what types of things (materially speaking) are essential to having a baby? Your top baby picks, if you will.
