Where I've Been

So it's been about two months since I blogged consistently on this thing. Figured it's about time that I let you all in on where I've been.

Recently, a lot of my time has been spent here:

American Standard 2002.014.020 Champion-4 Right Height Elongated Two-Piece Toilet, White
And the reason you ask?

Well, I'm delighted to announce that hubby and I are expecting a little turkey!

Our due date is Thanksgiving Day (11/25) and we are just estatic! The above ultrasound was taken at 9 weeks, but I'll be 14 weeks on Thursday.

I mentioned here before that hubby and I have been trying for quite awhile to have a baby (about a year in fact). So, when we found out on the first day of spring (the beginning of new life) that there was a new life growing inside of me and then having that new life due on Thanksgiving Day (as a reminder to always be thankful for the ways God provides) we are just so amazed at the way God works.

For the most part I really can't complain. The morning (noon and night) sickness struck full force about 2.5 weeks ago, but hopefully it won't last too much longer. The upside is that I've actually lost weight so far because I can't even keep water down some days, but hopefully soon I'll be able to start keeping up with a slow and steady weight gain. We should be able to find out in about another month what we're having and I can't wait! Secretly (alright not so secretly) I'm hoping for a bundle of pink, but I'll be thrilled no matter what.

So, that's the biggest news that's been going on around here. One of the main reasons why I haven't blogged is because I knew I'd spill the beans before we were ready to go public, but I have also been very busy with travels and other stuff. Hopefully I'll get to post about all that stuff soon and return to a more normal blogging schedule.

We get to have another ultrasound of our baby this Thursday, but here is the 3D ultrasound from 9 weeks:

If you look closely, you can see the little nose.


  1. Brie, I am sooo happy for you! I wondered if that were the reason but I dared not ask. The ultrsound is just precious!

  2. Brie, I'm so thrilled for you! I've actually been meaning to write to you about the blog post you shared a couple of months ago about trying to get pregnant. I have prayed for you since then and am just so excited that the Lord has answered with a "yes"!! Congrats!

  3. Brie! Seeing the ultrasound is just amazing - you have a little person growing inside of you. All the best in the days, weeks and months ahead. I look forward to following your journey on here.

  4. That is some pretty BIG news! Congratulations! God is good isn't He?

  5. This is great news! I never had a 3-d ultrasound "way back when" but I've seen them and they are amazing! Congrats :)
