Well, I could certainly make you wait for the big news... but I'm not that cruel.
This is a picture of my sister-in-law, Stacey, and I. Stacey married my brother in May of 2009, roughly six months after Jason and I got married. This picture was taken last weekend at a family get together in Virginia.
The best part of this picture??? There are actually FOUR people in this picture! That's right folks... my sister-in-law is pregnant!!! She is due about two months after me. She is twelve weeks today and I am so happy for Stacey and my brother. The baby has a strong heartbeat and everything is progressing very well for them. What could be more awesome than having someone close to go through the pregnancy experience with?! I'm thrilled that our children will be so close in age. Our family is very blessed!
I'm so excited to become an AUNT!!! I've wanted to shout this news for weeks, but I've kept quiet per their wishes. However on Christmas Day, after sharing the news with family and friends, they posted this picture on Facebook:
As they say, it's now "Facebook Official" which means Aunt Kris can share the news, too!
Ok. Now that I've spilled the beans... we can proceed with the weekly update. :)
How Far Along? 21 Weeks, 4 Days
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Had another weigh in at my appointment yesterday... Down 2lbs from my last appointment in November. Still lingering at the -5lbs mark.
Now, now... before you send me pregnancy hate-mail about how unhealthy I am eating, let me tell you that I limit myself to one McDonalds stop per week, and my Hot & Spicy McChicken sandwich is only 380 calories. And the sweet tea is just the perfect drink to wash down the delicious spicyness.
Looking Forward To: the new year! Bring on 2013!
See you next week!
