I've been so patient.



It's been 57 days since I found out. 57 days and 29 blog posts. I have waited the societal drive appropriate amount of time and now I am ready to shout from the mountain tops - I am pregnant!!! The nine long months of trying now seems like a distant memory. As of today I am officially twelve weeks and feeling just great. I love going through the feelings and changes of pregnancy. And although it makes other people angry at me, I haven't been sick at all! We met with the doctor today and listened to the most precious sound of our baby's heart. 156 beats per minute - the doctor jokingly claimed, "Then it's a boy." Brian and I are so happy and are counting the days down til we can shower our baby with love and kisses.

And yes, I may be only twelve weeks, but I do already have an obvious baby bump. It was not fun hiding it from my co-workers everyday. Thank goodness for my baggy lab jacket. I will finally tell all of them today. The announcement will come in the form of pink and blue cupcakes - an idea straight from Carrie (what a creative gal).

Now I can post about everything baby (and you know I will). And to start - I will show you one thing I will not be knitting for my baby. If you make your baby wear this, you're just plain mean.

Congratulations!
What a wonderful blessing for you and Brian!
I'm jealous of all the cute things you will be knitting your little one. :)
I will be praying that the rest of your pregnancy goes well and God blesses you with a healthy baby.

Mamie on board!!! Mamie has tears of utter joy too. Blessings, blessings!!.....FINALLY I can share with all the people who will be praying for your journey into parenthood. Lots of prayers are going up for 2 (!!!) count them people - 2 Burch babies on the way. Chuckles is so very excited! Cottage neighbors gave us an expensive highchair that he spent literally hours cleaning off to be presentable for the babes. Mind you, he'll be cleaning it again by next summer. How more blest can grandparents be. And, I'm getting braver with my needles, thread and knitting. Many surprises coming from two of the most spoilingest (is that a word?, who cares, I'm going to be a grandmother!) grandparents EVER!! I've been waiting a long time to see this post and it feels wonderful.

Angie said...

Thanks for all the well wishes! And yes, I sense this will be a spoiled grandchild, for sure.

I'm trying to eat all of the pink cupcakes for good luck.
