Our litte June Bug

Hi everyone! I'm Jennifer and DH is Dustin. I found out on October 6 that we are expecting our first baby. Not bad as we have only been ttc'ing since mid-August. Had my first prenatal visit on Oct 26 and I am officially due on June 12. Oddly enough, despite the fact that we were trying, initially I felt terror. Now I'm mostly excited but every now and then I still get that worry. Will I be a good mother? MS set in for me on Sunday of this week and has not really let up since. I keep telling myself that it is all worth it but it's still pretty hard to deal with. DH is probably the greatest thing in all of this. He's been so patient and has really started taking on more than his share of the household duties. He's really the best. I know that I am lucky. My next appt. is the day before Thanksgiving and I will hear the heartbeat for the first time.

Can't wait to meet you June bug!

Ok. Everyone keeps telling me this is going to get better. I read that just over half of pregnant women actually get morning sickness. Evidently I'm in that half. It's been a rough couple of weeks. Seems like I'm constantly in the bathroom and I'm afraid to eat anything for fear it will come up. I'm just forcing things down as I know I have to eat. I'm lucky to have such a wonderful network of friends and family acting as my support system, especially DH who is the greatest thing in the world. I don't know what I'd do without him. Oh well, I know you're worth it June bug! Also, I'm just finishing up my second month and my clothes are already getting tight. Since I haven't been able to keep much down, I can't believe it's from weight gain. DH and I are going to Washington D.C. over Thanksgiving break on vacation so hopefuly when we come back from there I won't be complaining so much in my posts!
