Morning, Noon, and Night. AND The Waiting Game


I DO NOT get why in the hell anyone ever called it "Morning Sickness"... because clearly over here it is morning, noon, and night.

Tomorrow I will be 8 weeks. I cannot even believe that right now. It is just so crazy to think that we are having a baby!
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments last week and thank you for keeping the secret. I promise to start "Bump Pictures" after this appointment. To be honest, there is a little one starting, but it is more "bloat" than "bump".

We have our second appointment on Tuesday next week, where we will get to meet Lil Bunny and hear a heart beat! We cannot even wait. I cannot even stand it right now... I wish that I had taken an appointment this week. But then again, JM has been so busy at work, we knew that he would be able to get there on Tuesday. I couldn't imagine him not being there!

BUT back to the waiting part...
I have figured it out that pregnancy is a waiting game. 9 (really 10) months of waiting to meet the greatest love of your life.
Right now I am waiting to see if the rest of my breakfast is going to come back to haunt me in a minute... This morning it was to see if I am going to throw up before or after my shower. Gross huh?

Then I will be waiting to announce it on Facebook at 12 weeks. We have a plan for that which includes us posting it as we board a plane to St. Lucia for a week. That way we can just turn the phones off... So you must keep the secret until then.
Speaking of St. Lucia, yes we are still going. A few have asked, and honestly it is is going to be a blast! I will get to eat what I want, get a massage, and be in the sun! Just because I cannot drink doesn't mean that I cannot have a VIRGIN daiquiri. Plus I am not a big drinker to begin with.
I just hope that the nausea and sickness goes away by then...

Another thing we are waiting on... Finding out the sex.
Some of you are saying- "You are crazy! Why would you want to do that?" "You will want to find out because you will be impatient" "What about the nursery?" "what about the clothes?!?!"
Umm yeah, I have heard it all by now, and your questions are making me want to wait until Lil Bunny makes his/her grand appearance this Halloween even more.
So that is what we are going to do.
We are going to wait until Lil Bunny is born to find out, because I cannot think of a better surprise than that... I cannot wait for JM to scream out "It's a ______!!!!!"
I get all teary just thinking about that moment!

But until then we wait...
We wait for the sickness to pass, wait for the next 7-8 months to go by fast and worry-free, and we wait for the greatest joy of our lives to come and meet us.

Promise to be back on Tuesday with all of the news of the appointment!

It is going to be beautiful this weekend in Atlanta, I hope that everyone goes out an enjoys it! I sure will be...

Have a Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Aww great post! I totally understand the waiting part. I could never wait to find out the gender myself - I'm wayyyy too impatient for that, but good for you both!! I'm sure you will have a great time in St.Lucia. Miss you.

  2. I have a hard time believing you will wait to find out.

  3. LOL Mr. Southern Belle! I will be able to wait. I really want that surprise more than anything. JM agreed- which I was surprised by. We said that we would only find out if it were twins... Hope not! If my dreams tell me anything then I am having a half cat/ half baby!

  4. I love it.. Sorry you're not feeling well! You know my stance in the waiting and I love that you are waiting! Soo happy for y'all. It will be such a joy on that day :)

  5. I had no idea you were pregnany!! Congrats! It really is a waiting game! I remener I would count the days between appointments so we could see or hear something again! I was very impatient too and paid extra to find out the sex at 15 weeks! It was so worth it though, I needed to plan! So excited for you guy! Sorry you are so sick...maybe its a girl! :)
