|We made this cookie for our family and gave it to them on THANKSGIVING. What better day to possess and share gratitude??|
I just went in my room and sobbed like a baby for an hour! I was so happy. I knew that Heavenly Father cared for us and that he understood that we needed relief from our burdens.
JJ was actually in Chicago when I found out. I decided to keep my mouth shut until he came home (THIS TOOK A LOT OF PATIENCE) I decided to make it fun for him when he came home by doing a scavenger hunt with clues of his "early Christmas present."
Here is the summary in pics:
JJ's reaction was PRICELESS! He was so surprised!!!!
We made a cookie that said, "we're pregnant" for both the Haglunds and the Ahlmans.
|Me with my parents. Don't mind me. Pregnancy makes you so tired and you look and feel HASHED!!|
Everyone's reactions were crazier than I expected. Especially the Haglunds. THEY FREAKED!!!
VIDEO COMING SOON
Pregnancy is crazy though. I'm always exhausted, bloated, nauseous, and I never have an appetite (well, yet!). I do have weird cravings though and I'm hating foods I once loved AKA SWEET TOOTH FAIRY CUPCAKES and DIET DEW! What? I've been obsessed with both FOREVER!
|These no more look appetizing|
In this trimester, I've been craving super healthy food. I think the Wendy's chicken pecan salads are my new indulgence. I also crave broccoli and turkey. Sweet and salty foods make me sick!
I think the most noticeable thing about my pregnancy are my emotions. Last night, the Haglunds took us to the "Muppets Movie." I cried and a ten year old girl! It was supposed to be a funny movie too!
All I know is JJ and I are very grateful, which is why we chose to announce it on Thanksgiving. In just the short time, our lives have changed. It's almost like a chamber in your heart opens that you didn't even know existed when you carry a child. You become more submissive and caring for those around you and yourself. Pregnancy makes you feel more selfless. After all, you're living your life cautiously so your child can INHERIT a life. We couldn't be more grateful for the support from our families. I can't wait for our future family! We're so blessed.
