This CRAZY little thing called LIFE

Just some of the things I have felt this past month: overwhelmed, excited, anxious, blessed, scared, loved, worried, humbled, distressed, comforted, and overjoyed. Time has been dragging so slowly, I feel like it's been a YEAR already since we found out. (And I can't believe I've kept my mouth shut as long as I did!)

Ahhhh, right? Crazy! I know, believe me, I know...

Dan and I are very excited!!! We were also very surprised! But we appreciate the fact that the Lord works in his own time, and we know this is a huge blessing in our lives.

Just give me a second for a cheesy rant, the things I have been blessed and grateful for as of late: My number one always, I'm so grateful for ♥Dan♥ and how wonderful he's been to me. He's so excited and he puts up with my complaining about being sick so well! (I really do complain a lot... But come on, feeling sick all day everyday is hard! And I sure get tired of having to eat all the time!) I honestly could not have married someone more perfect for me. I'm so excited to start a family with the love of my life! I'm also SO grateful for my sweet mom. She has been such a huge comfort and source of strength and well needed good advice! I'm so grateful for The Gospel, for the strength I am given in my life that I don't deserve, for answers to my prayers, for love from family and good friends.


SO here I am, 10 weeks along! We are due March 27th, and we will find out in November what we are having. (Dan is just sure it's a boy.) We had our first ultrasound two weeks ago and it was amazing. Hearing the hearbeat was so surreal! This little peanut is growing inside of me:

Overall the preganancy so far hasn't been too rough, compared to others I've heard about. But I am pretty discouraged by the fact that I'm only 2 1/2 months along yet I already have a hard time sucking in my little tummy! Luckily I've always been a regular gym goer, so working out during pregnancy is a yes. (I can't wait until the nausea goes away so I can work out more!)

And yes, I will give in and take pictures as my belly gets bigger because I heard I would regret it if I don't. Here's me at 10 1/2 weeks:

I made sure to take this on a day I couldn't suck in. See, there it is! I call it my "pooch".

Well there you go, our life with a happy little new twist! I will keep you updated as we go.

On another note, we just got home from a nice 5 day weekend in Lake Powell. I had never been to Lake Powell before, it is gorgeous! We had so much fun!

Good times!

Well that's all for now folks. Love you all!


  1. Meghan! Congratulations! That really is so exciting! I'm stoked for you! You really are going to be such a cute mom! Seriously, congrats! Definitely keep us updated:) (oh, and Powell looks fun too, gotta love that place). You two are so cute.

  2. COngrats!!! That is so exciting. I am impressed you haven't told anyone and you are that far along, way to go!!! I hope you get feeling better soon!!! The middle months are the best, so enjoy every second of it...
