Baby O looking like a cabbage patch doll. :)
For some of you I’m sure you are ready to let the cat out of the bag and so are we, we are expecting Baby Ormsby in March 2011! After trying for months, going to doctors and specialists, going through numerous procedures (Cory and I), taking numerous drugs, being told we had a slim chance we decided to let go and let God have control. After many prayers I went in for a regular appointment to check on my cyst (I have PCOS), I was told I was pregnant, 5 weeks! Praise God! I was in complete shock and wanted to cry but then again I was in shock and Cory wasn’t there. After a two hour appointment I called Cory and told him the exciting news. His first reaction was ‘shut-up’ (wow, we have some adjusting to do before baby O gets here) and his second reaction was ‘you made me go through all those tests and spend all that money…see I told you it wasn’t me!’ My sweet hubby!
After finding out I realized all the signs I should have paid a little closer attention to: dizziness, exhaustion, dehydrated, a lovely pooch and being sick after a margarita! It was like a light switch turned on and I went from being normal to feeling nauseous all day. I was miserable! We all know I love to eat and love queso and guacamole, these two things made me sick, everything made me sick. My cravings: pickled okra, Wendy’s baked potatoes with sour cream and chives, fruit bars and ice cream! Fast forward to 10 weeks and I finally felt better and gained some energy before our trip to Charleston and Savannah.
Now that we are at the end of our first trimester we are excited about our new chapter in life! Please continue to pray for Baby O’s health and protection and wisdom for Cory and I in the days to come.
