Hey everyone! My appologies to everyone for not keeping in touch a little better (for those of you who actually check this blog regularly). Although I have to say, I don't know anyone else who shares their lives as often as we do. But that's another topic for another day.
Our big news: we have a new addition to our family! The little person will be making their apperance sometime around mid-June. Just to clear things up: we will not find out the gender beforehand, so you just have to wait. Also, we will decide on names, but will not tell you until the person is born. So once again, you'll just have to wait. Interestingly enough, the "just have to wait" idea has now become a trend among celebrities, and I think it's because of our bright and shining example. The element of suprise is back in style!
For a few months, Greg and I had ben considering the idea of adding someone to the family. We happen to like Andrew quite a bit, and also, he's just so damn cute. So at some point, I finally came to the point where I said, yes, I think we should start "trying" soon.
I went to the doctor for an unrelated thing (my arms have been itchy all summer -- sun allergies or something!! [?]). While there, I just told him any symptom I could think of that I had, and he decided to run a series of tests just to rule things out. Army doctors are funded like crazy, and we don't have to pay them anything, so they like to just do all kinds of stuff if you let them. One of these tests was a pregancy test.
After my visit, I told Greg about the various tests, and we went on with our day. The next morning I woke up to a message on my cell phone "Mrs. Darling, the reason you have these symptoms is because you are pregnant." I couldn't believe it, so I had to listen to the message a bunch of times (5 times actually, I counted) before I would call Greg. OHMYGOSH! So as it turns out, while I was considering getting pregnant in the near future, I already was! I called the doctor just to hear it "live" he confirmed it, probably while making "koo-koo" signs to the nearby nurses ("These crazy pregnant people!")
So that's that! As of this week's Thursday I will be 15 weeks pregnant.
