I'm Alive!

Wow... I haven't written a blog post in almost 8 months!
I've missed it though.
I have to wonder: will anyone even read this?

SOO much has happened since I last posted. And blogger has changed a bit!
 I don't even know where to begin...

I think I'll just write a quick update now, and maybe I'll fill you guys in more in the future. 
I know you've heard it before, but I do plan to blog more regularly :-) 

If you follow me on Facebook you already know the biggest news since I last updated: 

Michael and I are going to be parents!!!
I'm due in July :-)

I took a picture each month, starting at 3 months, and I'm wearing the same clothes in them, my shirt is going to stretch! 
I wasn't really showing at all until around 4 months

 Three months
 Four months
 Five months
Six months
 Seven months

I'm seven and a half months pregnant now. 
And I am feeling great! I've been taking good care of myself, and I've been trying to give my body everything it needs. I haven't even had much back pain at all yet! Which is one thing I was worried about, because of my scoliosis

We are really excited!
Nervous, overwhelmed, anxious, intimidated and so many other emotions. But definitely excited! 
I feel ready to be a mom, you know? I know it will be an adjustment, but I'm ready to start adjusting :)

I'm going to be having a wonderful natural birth experience in a wonderful birth center about five minutes away from my house, with a midwife. I've been doing hypnobabies and I am so excited about it! I know it will work wonderfully. And I'm looking forward to telling you all about my birth experience after our little one is with us. 

So, you're probably wondering if we are having a boy or a girl
How we told our families is I made cupcakes and I put colored frosting in the middle, and I had them all take a bite at the same time.

And this is how I announced on Facebook:

My sister Helena is in town for a bit! I'm so excited about that! I haven't seen her yet, but I will see her tomorrow and we can compare belly sizes... Because she is expecting too! She is about two weeks farther along than I am! AND we are BOTH having girls! Crazy.

Since she is in town we are having my baby shower this Saturday! I am really looking forward to it.
And we will have a shower for her the Friday after! It will be great fun.

I will be sure to post pictures. 
Because I will blog again soon :-)
