19 weeks and growing...

Here I am @ 19 weeks!!! random picture I'm throwing in here... this is the day I told Ben we were expecting!!

I don't want to get into too many details about us "trying" to get pregnant... needless to say we had decided to let go and let God.. especially with Ben starting nursing school and cutting down on his hours @ work. God has a sense of humor because that month (June) it happened!! I took a pregnancy test on July 1... first day mother nature was supposed to visit : ) within 15 seconds it said Pregnant! I took about six more while he was @ school... I then went to my home away from home, Target to buy the book "What to Expect When You're Expecting." I wrapped it up along w/ a couple of the pregnancy tests... Ben was doing so well in school and very eager to learn... soo, I told him I was proud of him and got him a present.. I found a card that said, "You're going to be a great dad!!" I knew once he read that he'd get it... I'll never forget the smile on his face as he opened the card.... he would read a word then look @ me, then look back @ the card, then back @ me.... @ this point I finally become emotional!! Pure joy of course, I was so excited!! Our immediate family found out pretty quickly.. we didn't tell anyone else until after my 8 week appt, which was July 27. Ben has not been able to come to my appointments because of school... BUT he talked with his teacher today and she's agreed to let him come the afternoon of the 20th!!! (we find out what we're having)
Saturday morning my mom, sis, nieces, & I got up to go shopping.. of course Amber broke out the camera!! My first time to wear maternity jeans and I'm in love!!!!
I still don't feel pregnant.. but I sure am enjoying this growing belly!! I've always had a fascination w/ pregnant bellies and I'm loving to watch mine grow!!!!
Of course I had to end w/ my newest pair of shoes... my sister and I both got a pair, they're funky!! Ben's comment on the new purchase, "go figure, heels!"
I'll be updating again next Tuesday!!! I'm praying everything looks great on the ultrasound and obviously thrilled to put a name w/ Baby M!!! Please keep Ben and I in your prayers as we embark on this new adventure.....

Aren't maternity pants grand?? I joked that I wouldn't go back to regular pants, but somehow by the end I was ready for my pants that zipped and buttoned. You look great! Can't wait for the 20th!
