Time to cheer people!

It's true, some of you have probably already heard, some of you might be expecting it, some of you might have figured it out, and some of you might have no clue what I'm talking about. Let me fill you in-

We're pregnant!! Hooray! It took two weeks for that second line to show up but we couldn't be happier. I've been patiently waiting for Travis to get in a place in his life where he feels ready for this step and now that graduation is around the corner he gave me the green light. We have been so blessed and are so incredibly grateful for this opportunity that the Lord has given us. We found out in February and at the time Travis was working with an obgyn so I was able to get lots of free ultrasounds! It was wonderful. My first ultrasound the baby was a dot. Really, just a tiny dot. The second one the baby looked more like a gummy bear. But the most recent one we had done the baby actually looked like a baby.

This ultrasound was taken at nine weeks and it is so precious. The heart rate was wonderful to hear. It made me actually feel like there is something inside of me growing. It was at 166 beats per minute. This is me now. I am 13 weeks pregnant and couldn't be feeling better. I am one of the lucky pregnant women that hasn't gotten any morning sickness, nausea, or had throwing up. Trust me, I am grateful for this consdering I was working during my first trimester. But today is a new day and not only I am no longer working (:D) but I am now in my second trimester! I can definitely tell I have a belly. I put on a button up shirt yesterday and the button by my stomach looked like it was ready to pop. I put all of those shirts away so I won't have to look at them anymore. We have no idea what we're having yet-we won't know until the beginning of June! We are not partial to having a boy or a girl. We have a bunch of names for both and would be extremely excited for either. But we are definitely excited to find out! Can you believe it?? I'm pregnant! I love that our time to start a family has finally come. We have been married for three years, Trav is graduating, and I am never going to work again. I love it! Life is great. Oh, and everyone that reads this better comment about how excited they are for us!! I wanna see and hear cheers and jumps for joy people! :) Oh, we're due October 19.

Horray! We are so happy! Of course we didn't know, so this is a great surprise!

Let us know if you need (or want) anything. Not that you'll be lacking advice or info from others, but we're not shy about anything!

Isn't it so magical to hear the heartbeat?
