Spring: New Beginnings

It’s been a whirlwind of a year so far!

Hubby finally finished school, I started a new job, and we’ve just been enjoying life, taking it day by day and enjoying this beautiful city we live in. (If you’ve never visited Victoria, BC or Vancouver Island, I recommend you give it a Google.. you might have your next trip planned out.)

After the my last post, I left feeling like we needed some time to compose ourselves and figure some things out.

I had decided at that point that I was going to go back on birth control so we could take some time to figure it out. Turns out I liked the theory of that more than the practice so we ended up using one of the more ancient forms of birth control.

Fast forward a couple months and well, we are 7 weeks pregnant!

While there is always that nagging voice in the back of my mind – especially since I haven’t had my first ultrasound yet – I am feeling positive with the new season and the place we are in right now.

Our first ultrasound is a week tomorrow (19th) and we are super excited to get to see that peanut!

We have to thank all of our friends and family who have had us in their prayers through the months – I honestly think that has made a huge difference in our journey. We are so blessed to both have such amazing families that care so much.

My mom surprised us with ice cream bars and pickles yesterday which was adorable. (I don’t think I’m quite ready to eat those together though.. ew.)

I had a bit of nausea over the past week but this week has not been so bad.  I would say it’s less nausea than it is just outright disgust at the thought of eating most foods.

Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse over the next couple weeks as they say morning sickness and nausea usually gets the worst over week 7 and 8.

I’m holding hope that the lack of nausea is because it’s a boy 😉

My hubby’s aunt thinks it’s a boy, I had a dream it was a boy, and my mom did the sewing needle test yesterday and it also thinks it’s going to be a boy! (If you want to know what the sewing needle test is, I included a link here. It’s silly and maybe a bit hokey sounding but I think it’s just a fun and goofy thing to do.)

Of course, we will be happy no matter what! 10 fingers and 10 toes 🙂

  1. That’s fantastic!! Congratulations!

    I have to caution you though on the morning sickness, I had 3 boys and had morning sickness with all 3. Thankfully by the 3rd I knew what to avoid entirely. Learned all about ginger capsules and papaya extract. (Those may become your best friend). Hopefully though you’ll sail right through the pregnancy!


    1. Good to know! Just being hopeful 😉 I thought I was getting over it after this weekend (I felt great) but today was terrible! Luckily I’m not a puker but it was certainly close a couple of times today, haha. I’ll have to pick those up if they’re going to help me tolerate food a little better!
