News to Share!!!

This is our most recent "Family" picture taken in the winter of 2009. Our family will grow from three members (yes, we count Izzie) to four!

When Adam came home from work, he found this on the counter. He didn't quite know how to react, so he fell over on the kitchen floor (kidding of course). As for me, I was shocked believe it or not! Of all months, I thought there would be no way for it to happen this month. I went to bootcamp one Saturday morning, held a baby shower one of my best friends, went to a baby shower, and welcomed Elle to the world all in the same weekend. My whole entire body was sore from bootcamp, so I didn't notice anything different with my body besides that I was miserable! Since, my body has recovered and I am feeling really good (knock on wood). Bootcamp might be on hold though!

After sharing the news with Adam, we decided to share it together with Izzie. Let me say that she is the QUEEN of the house and her world is going to change come next spring!

We shared the news with Adam's family this past weekend. It wasn't too difficult, as Jerry always offers me a beer! I know we couldn't hide our news for too long! Adam got me a diet coke and made the announcement that I was drinking soda for a reason. I don't know who jumped off the couch faster... Laura or Jerome. Not too long later, Dave, Missy, and Elle came home and we were talking about adjusting dogs to babies. Adam dropped into the conversation that "we will just have to wait until March to see how Izzie deals with a new baby!" There was a silence for what felt like forever and then I think Missy finally made the connection ;) .

I wasn't able to spring it upon my mom because of the fact she has been wanting another grandchild for a long time and I think she knew my cycles better than I did... is that weird??? So she found out right away, and she helps me get my doctor appointments. Yes, I am able to make my own appointments, but when my mom knows the doctor's schedules and can "bend the rules to squeeze me in," I have to take full advantage! My brother and sister were at Rock Fest for the entire weekend. I should have had a headliner band make the announcement, but I guess a low key grill out will get the job done.

We have just began sharing the news, but are already getting the questions! To help answer a few:

1. When are you due? I am roughly due March 20th (My Spring Break). I see the doctor on August 16th for my first prenatal visit and to hear the heartbeat. Because twins run in my family, and I had been on a fertility medication they will check right away for multiples. PLEASE just one, MAYBE two!!!!!!

2. Are you going to find out the gender? We are undecided on this one. We go back and forth. Right now we are thinking probably not!

3. Do you have names picked out? It's kind of early, but yes, we have had names picked out for awhile (some choices for each gender) and we will NOT be sharing them with anyone!

As family and friends are slowly finding out, it is making it more real! Since our news, Adam and I have had two other couples share their news and both are due in February/March as well! I am excited to share sober nights, food binges, and complaining sessions with fellow mommies-to-be. We probably should take the time to thank/warn Missy and Dave right now though, because they are the go-to for questions at this point!
