That light pink line

I have taken quite a few pregnancy tests in the past few (or more) months, and had gotten used to the fact that the place where the little pink line should be always came up blank. On February 12th I decided to take a test again. I was late (but that happens a lot) and I had a dream that I had a little girl. So when I looked and saw the little pink line I was shocked, surprised, and happy. I immediately said a prayer of gratitude. Russ was at work, but I had to tell someone and I didn't want to tell Russ over the phone so I told William. He smiled and said, "awesome". He then went and drew a picture to let Russ in on the news. Then we made a valentine to give him with the picture in it.

It is a little nerve racking that it is happening RIGHT NOW, since we did not close on the house last month and we will not close today. Our new close date is on or before March 19th. As soon as the repairs are made and the inspection of the repairs is done then we can close. The repairs are well under way and it all *should* be done by the end of next week. So now this means I will be sick during the move. Not fun, but we will make it work.

I have felt a little sicker everyday. This is good because it means that things are going good with the pregnancy. Or at least it is supposed to mean that - last time it didn't. I never did throw up, but I was sick. Anyway, I have stayed true to the goal I set in the last post...until now. Today I woke up with Russ at 5:30 and he brought me something to eat in bed, because I felt sick then I went back to bed until 9:00 when the kids woke up. I am still in my pajamas and it is 11:00. Yuck. I don't want everyday to be like this. But sleeping just seems so unbelievably important to me right now. I just hope that if all my good habits of the last month are thrown out the window, that they will come quickly back when I am feeling better.

I also hope I remember to do this-
Isn't that so cool/cute?
(A few people thought that these are pictures of me. They are not. Click the link under the picture to see the source.)
I have also been more emotional and hot already. I got teary while my children were watching Lady and the Tramp when you see the baby. I also got teary in a sweet part in the Princess and the Frog.
Mostly I am excited about the whole thing. I keep thinking of when my other two awesome kids were babies. How sweet it is to have a new baby. Then to watch them grow into people. William and Gracie are always amazing me and I want more!
So the next couple months will most likely be crazy, but they will pass and then at the end we should have a home and a tiny baby to welcome to it. This is what I am planning on and hoping for. Life is beautiful - I hope I can remember that in the next couple of months.
