If you’ve been following me on the blog or Facebook lately, you’ll know that I’ve been very vocal about my top goal for 2011 which is (Drumroll, please….) TO HAVE A BABY. Being the powerful intention setter that I am (and with a little help from Nick), I’m happy to report that we’ve got success on the first go round. :) I had no idea that it could happen that fast, but folks, be careful **it works just like they say it does**. I’m still not over the initial shock factor!
I don’t feel like playing by the normal pregnancy rules, so we’re announcing Baby Novak at 5 weeks in (no gasping, please)! That’s right, we don’t even know the official due date yet, should be sometime in mid-October! Turns out that my body wasn’t being attacked by a parasite these last few weeks, it was merely letting me know that a baby was on board. Could have fooled me! My skin looks like I’m back in high school (sorry, no pics for you), every smell makes me want to throw up (although I haven’t yet) and I have the weirdest cravings for Sun Chips…
And yes, that does mean we’re still at risk for a miscarriage until the 2nd trimester but I’d never want to go at that alone, so if it does happen, know that I’m counting on you for support. But in the meantime, let’s just assume that everything will sail along smoothly and I’ll keep you updated on how baby and I are doing. Deal?
You’ll be pleased to know I am taking full advantage of my AMAZING partner in crime and am getting him trained quite nicely – he’s already getting me water every night, which I SOOOO appreciate. We’ll be adding in foot rubs shortly….
Both of us are still a bit edgy about the whole thing, but overall we’re pretty pumped to join the “Parents Club”. I’ll be planting myself in Minnesota and delivering there, so there’ll be ample time for everyone to come visit. YAHOO! That’s all for now folks, thanks for sharing in our joy!
