Registering is FUN!

Brandy: Last weekend was Memorial weekend. Brian and I made the most of it by registering for baby stuff! We started at Babies R Us on Saturday and visited Target on Sunday. Target has managed to jack my registry up, so I am not very happy with them right now. Online, I can look it up by registry number, but not by our names. Also, it will not let me log in with my email address even though it sent me a "Welcome" email. It doesn't make sense and it is frustrating. Plus I found out you are supposed to get some nifty bag full of coupons and goodies in the store, and I didn't get anything . I will be calling them very shortly! Babies R Us was wonderful, and they had a much better selection of things. We are registering for most of our stuff here, and just choosing some smaller items from Target. It was a great weekend, but I did not realize how much pressure there is when choosing things for baby! Geez! Brian is totally impatient, and has pleaded with me that he cannot wait to find out the sex of the baby as our original plan entailed. So, IF we find out the sex of the baby, we will still be keeping it a secret from EVERYONE else. Yes I am mean. I have already heard it! I just really want to see the look on everybody's face when we announce "It's a (insert sex here)". Call me mean, call me selfish, but you can't make me spill the beans! This weekend we also watched Marley and Me. Wow, lots of tears on my part. And now it seems to have magically turned on some crying switch that I don't know how to turn off. I have been crying while watching TV and even at the Dry Cleaners yesterday. This doesn't last forever, right? Oh yea - Last week someone at work asked me if I was pregnant. I lied and said NO! I am not ready to tell people here... not until the 1st trimester is over. What does this mean? It means that I am getting a lil' bitty baby bump... enough that someone felt the urge to ask me! I wasn't ready for that yet. My lies will be exposed soon enough. Until then, I will have to be extra careful about wearing clothes that show my bump at work!

A Seed is Planted (Literally!)

Brandy: Well, I am finally stepping into the blogging world. I am creating this page to keep friends and family updated on my pregnancy. Brian and I found out on April 6th that we are expecting our first child! We started out due on December 16th, but they have already changed it to December 14th. We have decided to have the baby at Birth and Women's Center (BWC). I am really excited to have a natural childbirth experience, and stay out of the hospital. We have our first appointment there on Thursday, June 4th. Let's see... What else? We are not going to find out the sex of the baby. Also, we are going to keep the names we pick a secret until our bundle of joy is here. That way I don't have to listen to people tell me about how they hate the name we picked (until it is too late). I am 9 1/2 weeks prego right now, and Monday will make 10 weeks. I escaped morning sickness (yay me), but I have been absolutely exhausted! Other than that, the only symptoms really bothering me are a sore chest, and peeing every 2 seconds. It is all worth it though! We are going to start breaking the news on a larger level when I reach the 2nd trimester. This will put the date I can finally start blabbing about the baby as June 15th. Only a few people know so far, and trust me, keeping this kind of news secret is SO hard!
