We have news!

Pregnancy number 5 has begun! Once again, I'll do a Q&A style blog again. If there's anything I've left out that you want to know, feel free to ask.

When did you find out? We found out a week ago today.

How far along are you? 6 weeks 1 day today

When are you due? August 19, 2012

How big is the baby currently? Baby is a size of a lentil. :)

How are you feeling? Tired! I can't get enough sleep. I've had some nausea but nothing too awful.

What was your first symptoms? Fatigue and a "cold." I have gotten a "cold' with every pregnancy.

Have you been to the doctor? Just for bloodwork. Tomorrow is my third lab appointment.

Were you trying? Not really. We weren't preventing either.

How did you tell? When I first saw the test, I called Chris at work and just said "Congrats Daddy" when he answered.

For my family, my niece helped me make a shirt that she wore on Christmas morning. It said "I'm gonna be a BIG cousin!!" It took a few minutes for them to read it, but once they did, they were ecstatic and bawling. :)

For his family, we used cookies. We used sugar cookies to write out "C + A = 3" and "8-19-12" below that. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law got it pretty quickly. His dad needed a little help.

Are you excited, scared, or both?
Very excited. A little scared. I'm mostly excited but waves of fear definitely surface!
