If you haven’t heard already – Neal and I are expecting our first baby!!!! !!!!! !!
If you can’t tell from my exorbitant amount of exclamation points, we are tickled pink! (Or blue. We’re not sure yet.) But either way, the Harris family is excited as can be!
First, I want to thank everyone for all the kind words the last few days. It’s still a shock to us, and I know a lot of you are shocked for ME. Haha! “Jenn, pregnant?!” Oh yes yall, pregnant.
We are due July 30th, which is God’s lil’ way of laughing at me. I despise heat. Summer has never been my friend and the thought of being 9 months pregnant in the peak of the summer heat is nauseating at best. But the blessing of becoming a mother outweighs that and I am very much looking forward to carrying and caring for this child.
Neal and I had our first ultrasound December 27th. I waited for what seems like an eternity for that day. I rushed through Christmas just to get to that day, and it was a beautiful, perfect moment.
With this being our first child, everything is a new experience to us. Being 10 weeks along, I can’t really tell there’s a baby growing inside of me. I “know” because of the nasty symptoms that come with the first trimester like nausea, headaches (migraines for me) and extreme fatigue. But obviously, I can’t “feel” anything yet. Having that first ultrasound changed it all for us.
