Have you heard the news?

On February 1st, 2011 we found out that we were finally pregnant after trying for quite some time.  Trying to get pregnant is not as easy as one might think!  But...the good Lord above finally blessed us with a miracle in my belly!  We are due on October 7th, 2011 and we can't wait for the fun to start!  I have been very blessed, because I haven't been sick once!  I know most people would kill for that kind of pregnancy, but I somehow got lucky!  I was extremely tired and very grumpy in the first trimester.  I honestly wanted to quit my career on a daily basis due to the high level of hormone fluctuation in my body.  YIKES!  My poor students have had to endure one cranky lady, but they usually deserved it! :)

I am currently 4 months/16 weeks along and I bought a bunch of journals, yet I never find time to write in them.  I don't know why I think I will find time to write a blog, but I am hoping it is a different situation.  My goal was to create this blog to keep a diary of everything throughout the pregnancy and then some.

At 6 weeks I took an "Intelligender test" from Wal-Greens to determine the sex of the baby.  My brother insisted that we pay $30.00 and try this silly test.  I honestly gave in because I was tired of listening to him nag me about taking the test!  As you can tell from the pictures the color definitely matches that of the boy.  Shawn and I both think it will be a boy, but we will find out for sure in three more days!  We are so excited and I can't wait to start decorating.  I don't know how people go until the very end and keep it a surprise! 

On another note, I bought a fancy camera today (Canon Rebel Ti2), I think that is what it is called at least.  I bought this camera with money that I have earned throughout the year working overtime basically.  I have done a few extra programs on the side and made a little bit of money, so I figured it was time to spoil myself.  My goal was to have an awesome camera for when the baby arrives, and Shawn agreed.  So, I will be posting new pics as I learn how to take them!  Tomorrow is Easter, so I am sure I will have plenty of photo opportunities!  


  1. Aww Brianna Congratulations! I'm so excited for you and can't wait to follow your blog. I've missed keeping up with you so hopefully you will have time to post frequently. If you need any blog or camera help just let me know. Blogging has become the journal of our lives. There's even a website blurb that prints off your blog in a scrapbook form so you can preserve the memories.
