First blog ever!

I've never blogged before, but have always wanted to and thought this would be the perfect thing to do as we begin our family and the wonderful adventures we partake in.

As most of you know Nick and I have been trying to start a family for about 5 months now and man who thought it could be that hard! There were times of frustration and worries, knowing my family history and knowing that my parents went through a long process just to get me in the world. Therefore I was worried that we would have the same problem.

Good news we found out we were pregnant about 4 weeks ago and things could not be more exciting in our life right now. I made my first prenatal appointment for May 12 and waited patiently for it to get here.

May 1st weekend I decided to travel with Sabrina to NYC to visit Jessica and her new life in the big city. We were so excited and ready for a fun trip. On our last evening in the big apple I decided to make my exit "without" grace. Us girls had spent the day walking the Brooklyn bridge and eating cupcakes and then we went back to get dressed up for our evening. As we exited out of her building (of course it was raining and windy) I ended up tripping and falling down the stairs outside of her building and breaking my elbow and a bunch of cuts and scrapes. With all the pain and shock of what happened I could not even shed a tear because I was so worried about my baby. I ended up taking an early flight home on Sunday and spending the day in the ER.

Currently I am in a partial cast (splint) and wearing a sling for who knows how long. Nick and my family have been a constant support in cleaning my house, getting me ready in the morning (bra, washing hair, etc) and helping me get around.

We finally went to our first appointment and we were so nervous, but excited!! Baby is great and we got to hear the heartbeat. We have a picture which looks like a blob but we are having a Santa baby (due Christmas Day)!! Next appointment is June 2nd.

Please pray for our family as Nick finishes up with finals this semester, my elbow recovers FAST, the awful morning sickness that has finally crept into my life, and the growth of our miracle.
