Lets go back a little bit ...

Let me take you back to Christmas time. Well even further, to Thanksgiving. This is when Matt and I found out we were pregnant! We decided not to tell anyone yet since I was only 4 weeks pregnant. So we waited until we were back to Arizona for Christmas to tell our families. We told my family before my brother left on his mission and Matt's family when all his siblings were in town.

We handed everyone an envelope with this picture in it.
Telling my family was hilarious because Grace, my niece, was told I was holding a "pee stick" and she continued to ask me about it. "What is it?" ... "Where does it go?" ... "Can I have one" ... She continued to talk about it in to the next week.

While I was in Arizona I was sick. Very sick, but I learned how to control it. All I had to do was eat. The weirdest thing is having to eat when you are nauseous. This is why I lost so much weight while there.

When we got back, we had a doctors appointment where we got this ultra sound.
This is when I was 9 weeks. This was so exciting for Matt and I. We were able to hear the heart beat! I totally cried, which is normal these days.

Now I am 16 weeks, due August 6. I am feeling better but still have some bad spells and I get headaches constantly.

I don't really have a prego belly, just not the normal belly look.

I have an appointment this week and I will be scheduling the ultra sound to find out the gender! So hopefully in the next couple of weeks!

We are thrilled! We couldn't be more excited for baby Pobst to enter our life's!

It's about time you officially announced it! Congratulations! Don't forget to buy/read/memorize/love the Babywise book. PS... I want to see pictures of how you have painted/decorated your new 2-bedroom apartment (including baby's room!)

Congrats Christi! How fun for you guys. I always told Dane that I knew that you would be such great parents when I saw the way that you were with the nursery kiddos. We're so excited for you guys.

I still can't believe you're pregnant! I agree with Ruth about the Babywise book- it's AWESOME!! I love that ultrasound picture! Is that the one you sent me that I couldn't open?

The Robertson Family said...

Yay! We're talking about it! I'm so happy that everything is going well with the pregnancy. Being sick means strong hormones=strong pregnancy. Sucks but way worth it. Caffeine helps with prego headaches I hear. Good luck with that! I hope everything goes awesome for you! So we'll get to see the little one while we're there for San Diego. Cool, good timing! We'll visit you.

holy crap!! That is so exciting!! I am a few days.. maybe 1.5 weeks away from delivering.. and about 8 seconds away from insanity! I am telling you... ENJOY the second trimester!!! The first and third are aweful! I had a blast in my second trimester! Food is wonderful, you feel great and you are not so so fat but fat enough for people to tell you, you look cute and hold the door for you! Enjoy!

yay! you're preggers! my advice: go out with your hubby as much as you can and enjoy your time alone together. having a baby is the most wonderful thing in the world, and your lives will never be the same. so have you found out if it's a boy or girl yet? i was 16 weeks when we found out.

Mama Bear said...

Can't wait to find out what you are having!!

The Pritchard Party said...

YAAAAAY! I'm so happy for you! I feel bad that you'll be pregnant during the summer, but at least you live in Cali where it's not so bad. I'm already dying here. :o) CONGRATULATIONS!

Coopers said...
