We're EXPECTING!!!!!So Master and i are completely excited :) We have just found out this past week the amazing news!! It's the most exciting thing ever and i cant believe that the two of us are going to be bringing a little one into this world. It's the most exciting thing in the world to know that i have a life growing inside of me.
We are a little bit nervous because right now im facing a little bit of spotting, but according to the doctors that is normal for women to spot in their first trimester of pregnancy. I havent been to my first appointment yet, but as of now the best guess is im anywhere between 5 and 7 weeks pregnant. To me it is the most exciting time in the world. The spotting has me a little nervous but after talking to two nurses and an ObGyn about it i kind of am not as worried about it. Its still a major factor in the back of my mind, especially because i dont know whats causing it and i dont know how far along i am. My mind says ill be okay if i can just find out how far along i am and hopefully hear the baby's heartbeat(from what ive read you can hear it as early as 8 weeks but im not sure). Master keeps me calm and im trying to not to worry because i know its bad for baby. So for now im just keeping an eye on things and if it gets worse i think we'll go in and get it checked out even if its just to say that this is normal and the baby is doing alright.
Master and i are ready to have some fun and tell His family. We're waiting until Christmas and by then hopefully i will have had my first appointment and will find out just how far along i am with the baby. :) The debate has already started as to what we want to have--a boy or girl. Either way we know that we want the baby to be healthy. Id like a boy because i want him to be protective of his little sister when/if we have a girl and Master wants a little girl. Its crazy but i feel that we are both bonding with the baby right now. The baby isnt very big, but have an unofficial name until we find out what the baby is. We call it Peanut :) and its so cute because Master tells Peanut bye every morning that i go to work and just at random moments. The weird thing is that i find myself rubbing my tummy and thinking of the new life that is growing in there. It's the best feeling in the world and now i feel like i have to be so protective of my stomach.
My family is going to be told the day after Christmas, but im kind of leery of going up there. With everything that happened with our wedding i am not to sure how this is going to go. Its bad enough i have to go up there alone because they are mad at Him for protecting me. Ugh, i hate family drama. To add to it, they dont seem to be too happy that im bringing our dog with us, but she deserves to experience a change of scenery and shes way better behaved than my parents dog because she just listens very well. Yes she may have crack dog moments but thats normal for her breed.
Anyways...i figured id break the news here first because i feel like im bursting at the seams to tell everyone. It's exciting and i cant wait, but we are still thanking God everyday that He allows us to have this baby. Its going to be interesting because Master and i arent the typical couple and sad to say our life has changed a little bit since i found out i was pregnant, but i have a feeling it will change once i get further along. Right now, i just feel that i have to be a little too protective. Other than that im having all the usual symptoms....nausea, lightheaded at random moments, weird food cravings, and just not being able to handle other things that i used to love. It's going to be a brand new experience.
So anyone that has advice, we would be more than welcome to take any advice we can get. Especially because it is a lot different when you start having children in the lifestyle versus having children and you're a regular vanilla couple. If you have tips of what you thought you should have bought and didnt, things you wished you had known, or just anything please feel free to pass it along.
Master and i will keep this updated and i look forward to letting everyone know what we're having. Either way please pray for us and that this baby will continue to develop happy and healthy and come out a healthy beautiful baby(or babies***knock on wood*** because there is a chance of that happening too with my family genes).
