More "training" for MrsHall

If you hadnt noticed my pudgy midsection or glowing face, lol (Renee had noticed weeks ago with her comment to this post), this is the reason why.. Hubby and I are expecting a baby!!!! The baby is due in December and we are sooo excited!! This was the first baby pic, lol. pretty small but definitely a heart stealer. Can u even find my little grape baby? Look closely.... This was the first sonogram that we took at 6 weeks, so the baby was still very small. And when we heard the baby's heart beat it was racing, but everything was fine.

Today marks 12 weeks - 3 months exactly! And so the adventure begins...



I had a real strong feeling that I was pregnant and I finally took a pregnancy test on Easter Sunday. If you will recall, I was on vacation in Memphis, TN. When I got home, I told Hubby that I brought him the best gift back from vacation!! The best gift ever and he would love it!... I handed him a BabyRuth candy bar, and then a babybottle filled with candy.. and then I handed him a pick of the pregnancy test... it finally all clicked for him and he was soooo excited!!! It really was exciting for both of us.

And so the journey begins ...
I havent had any sickness. And other than being seriously tired all the time, I am feeling pretty good. As soon as the tiredness is gone, I need to get back to my workout routine.. more like my "walking routine." My sister has really been on me about slacking with our aerobics, but I have been so tired, I just want to sleep when I get home. This baby growing is hard work! But Im gonna get back to it soon.

So ever since I found out about being pregnant, I swear there have been a wave of babies as well. There are atleast 2 other women in my office that are pregnant. All due around Oct and Dec. I think there are 2 sorority sisters that are pregnant. And then there are 2 other bloggers that are expecting (Melanie at Then Comes Wife and Rose at from Sneakers to Stilettos you can read about each of their adventures too!).. and then just all kinds of other friends that I know.. I think in total, there are like 10 women that I know.. and still counting..

As far as the baby's sex, Hubby and the rest of the family are really hoping for a girl. My coworkers are agreed, that its a boy. Me, I am keeping an open mind, but I will be sure to let you all know as soon as we do!

Thanks for coming along for the ride.. and awaaaaay we go!!! More "training" for Mrs Hall, lol!
