The REAL truth to my hiatus...

So yes, I have been gone on a hiatus for a bit. Yes, I have had A LOT going on. Yes, school has been kicking my ass.

But the REAL reason for it all is right here:





Yes...that is our new little bean to be! :) I am only 8 weeks along and although I know it's taboo to tell before your 12th week, I just couldn't wait anymore. Well, that and the fact my waistline has grown and I look like I have gained A LOT of weight. I am not "showing" but I sure have thickened up. Today was the first day of wearing my old maternity jeans. I guess it's true...with the second child you show A LOT quicker. :(

I cried when I put on my maternity pants today. They are a huge pain in the ass. Since I am not "big" yet, I also have to wear my bella band and it's just a pain all the way around. BUT...before too long I am sure I can do without it.

I would have felt really bad if I had continued blogging during the hiatus because I would have felt like I was keeping secrets from all of you. I have even kept distance from my mom and friends just because I am a pretty honest person and to not be honest about this is a hard thing for me to do.

But now the secret is out! The little bean is healthy and is due December 19th. We had our first ultrasound when I was 6 weeks, 4 days along and they could not find the heartbeat. I was pretty scared and pretty anxious but as of Friday, it was there. We even got to hear it on the ultrasound!

I have been EXHAUSTED and sick off and on. I am usually in bed by 9 - TOPS. But other than the total and complete exhaustion and the bouts of barfing or feeling like I have to, I am so excited!!!

So we are plugging along. House hunting. Baby growing. Just doing wonderful!

I will be here more regularly since I am able to be honest with all of you now!

It's good to be back!
