A boy or a girl?

Hey everyone! I have found myself in a little bit more of a blogging mood lately…just haven’t taken the time to sit down and write anything.

We found out about a week ago that we will be welcoming a baby girl into our little family!  It was so fun seeing the ultrasound.  It made it so much more real and calmed some of my anxiety knowing and seeing that everything was ok. 

There are so many more options for decorating, clothes, etc. for baby girls… I am going to have so much fun with this. Open-mouthed smile

My appointments have been a few weeks later than normal because of scheduling conflicts, etc., so after what seemed like an eternity of waiting, we can finally start preparing. We have plans to make a nursery shopping trip soon.  I’ve been surfing the net for all kinds of ideas and I’m hoping we can find what I’m looking for!

The pregnancy is going great.  I guess I have been one of those lucky ones who doesn’t get morning sickness (just a little nausea) and have been feeling pretty good!  I’ve been sick over the past week with a nagging cold, cough, etc.…but it’s that time of year and I’m slowly getting better.  I have the best husband in the world who takes care of me, so I’m still a happy chica.

I have been finding lots of surprises in pregnancy.  There are so many things I could write about, and maybe I will have to finally get them out of my head and published here.  What an experience!

I will be 24 weeks on Tuesday, so I’m getting really close to the third trimester! The time seems to drag on and on but yet it’s going really quickly too.

Baby is due May 6th, which will be perfect.  The weather will be starting to warm up and I look forward to taking our little princess out in a stroller for walks, and working my way back up to running.  Hubby and I will sign up for some 5Ks and it will be nice to get back into the “weight loss” groove again. There are so many changes ahead—I am excited and nervous at the same time. Smile

Happy New Year!

Did 2013 fly by for anyone else? Wow!

I am both excited and nervous to ring in 2014. This year will bring a new chapter into hubby's and my life. In 4 1/2 short months our family will grow! Being the worry wart that I am, I am filled with all of the anxieties that I think most first time mothers have. But I am inspired to be a wonderful mother and fill my new role with all of my heart. And one of the best things is that I'm not in this alone... I have the most amazing husband and it makes me smile when I imagine him as a dad. Truly thankful!

I wish you all a happy new year! May you set goals for yourself and value yourself enough to achieve them. Remember that the physical things are not what's most important. As my dad recently told me, "Enjoy the experience. Life is too short not to". My goal is to start enjoying today and leave tomorrow's worries in God's hands. This will take some work!

I look forward to returning to blogging regularly later this year. Whether it be a continuation of A Journey to Thin or, most likely, a new forum to discuss the next leg of my journey and anything else that pops into my head. I will be back though! I hope you will stay around to join me as I begin the next chapter.
