Well, it's official... the stork is coming to my house on June 20th, or there abouts! It still feels very surreal to me. We have been trying for so long and now that I'm pregnant, I am shocked that I really am. I guess that's what happens when you have been waiting so long for something.
I have my first ultrasound next Wednesday. I can't wait!
Dom and I found out we were pregnant yesterday on our roadtrip to Illinois for a Lighthouse Conference. The phone rang, Dom answered, and begged her to tell him the results of my blood test first. She made him give me the phone, of course. I said, "please have good news for me." She said, "Congratulations Amanda, your pregnant!" I can't tell you the intense joy and excitement that I felt. It was ust the best feeling! We proceeded to call everyone we could. Most were not home, but we were able to get in touch with all of them sooner or later. Dom's family was thrilled and when I told my mom, she screamed with excitement. It is so wonderful to have such a wonderful response from everyone.
We then got to our conference. I told people here and there and all were happy to hear the news. At the social that evening Dom and I were talking to some people and I told them we were expecting. The women got the whole rooms attention and announced that we are expecting our second child and just found out. Everyone clapped and I got a lot of congrats. That was so much fun for me. I do like the spotlight sometimes and so I absolutly loved that attention! I mean, I felt like shouting my news from the rooftops, so it was nice to have a stranger do it for me! I have been feeling sick to my stomach off and on and I am soooooooo tired. All good signs! Mena is thrilled that there is a baby in my belly. I am sure she will talk more about it every day.
