BIG NEWS







I have been so crazy with the business photos lately that I haven't been that great about taking any of us or our life or posting anything...case in point: I loaded the photos off of 1 of our cameras and it had pictures from a year ago on it! Yea...that's life I suppose. That leads into our BIG NEWS though, I was loading the photos of our lil' peanut (don't mind the spotted mirror-just one more thing I have little desire to do). Yup, we're expecting May 31st. I was going to try and keep the news secret until I was through the 1st trimester...however this lil' peanut of ours is making my body go through a gamete of hormone unpleasantness right now. I was sick so it was hard to hide at work...so we decided to go ahead and tell our families and let word spread from there. We have since gone in for our first appointment. The lil' peanut is doing great...it was pretty amazing, made it all more real when we could see the fingers and limbs moving. Baby Oram was moving all over the place...this is probably a sign of things to come, neither of us were babies content with sitting still. I am going to a clinic in Jackson Hole that has 4 women on staff-which I am thrilled about. They have 2 OBGYN's, 1 NP, and 1 midwife. Not sure what to think as far as my birthing options go, but I am keeping an open mind. Tomorrow I will be 11 weeks-crazy to think. I took the first pregnancy test on my birthday, October 3rd, and it was a faint line. Alas, the box said any line was a line...so I kinda freaked a little-it's very surreal. It had happened on our 2nd month of trying-I thought for sure it would take longer than that! I retested on that Friday and the results were in...we were definitely expecting. I had some symptoms, but mostly nothing had changed at that point. 2 weeks later though the sickness hit. First it was morning, then afternoon, then whenever, and then at night. It kept getting worse, until we went to our first appointment and I got on medication to help me....and help it did! I started the meds last Thursday and have been way more functional since then. It has come with it's own side effects that are not pleasant, but it beats worshipping the porcelain god! I am still struggling to eat meat, but I am now able to eat more than cold cereal :0). Eric and I, although a little nervous, are super excited. We can't wait to see what baby Oram will look like...and I am especially hoping for a small Oram sized baby. As far as the rest of our life right now, I have put in my 2 weeks notice @ work so that I can move on to a different job that is more flexible and something I can keep doing when the baby comes. Eric starts basketball next week and is continuing his progress with Pure Performance and ZERO. I am starting to climb out of my editing hole...now that I can finally edit without feeling sick. All in all life is good, but different....and we're good with that :0).

Good days for all my friends!

Liz

I am so very happy for you! I don't really like admitting it, but I hate being pregnant because of the sickness, but I can testify that it does get better. (Although sometimes it takes longer than others. I was sick for 7 months straight with my first.) Medication is a blessing, and so are the little ones that come from the nasty sicky. Good Luck and Congratulations!

Sooo excited for you! Being a mother is amazing! But I do have to say that I have been sick for the past couple days and it reminded me that I am definitely not in a rush to have the pregnancy sickness again! That was by far the worst part! Good luck with everything!

Congrats Liz! I am so excited for you! I wish you all the best of luck and hope that you continue to feel better (with the help of medicine). I've been waiting, since your announcement of expanding your family earlier this year. Yeah!!!
