I have a happy secret…

I have written and re-written this post about 15 times because, honestly, there’s no really smooth, graceful way to announce, “Hey everyone – I’m pregnant!”  Or maybe there is a smooth, graceful way and I just can’t think of it…

Regardless, yes – I am pregnant!  And today, October 25th, seemed a fitting day to announce it as its also my father’s birthday!  The newest addition to our family is doing quite well at 8 weeks along, and he or she has a tentatively scheduled appearance set for the first week of June!  I’ve been nauseated and more tired than usual, but I’m happy to have it if it means that we have a healthy baby at the end 🙂  It’ll be hard for me to go through my first pregnancy so far away from family, but I know that so many of them wish they could be here to celebrate with us.

So, there you have it – our own little June bug!  Please keep us and the baby in your thoughts and prayers as we navigate this process and as I learn about maternity care in New Zealand!

  1. wow, congrats!!! I read your most recent post first and with you mentioning food smelling bad then spontaneously wanting thai food, i thought, “Hm, I wonder….” And looking down further in your blog, I see it is true! Congrats and good luck!!! I look forward to reading the parts that you choose to share on line 🙂

  2. Congratulations!!!! Such wonderful news and I’m so happy for you x All my children have been born here and I loved the freedom of choice here in terms of where you hope to have your baby (home or hospital). I built up the most wonderful friendships with my midwife and the continuity of care here is fantastic. Please email me if you have any questions. I also have a couple of books I no longer need which I’d happily send to you.

    Wishing you a very happy, healthy pregnancy!

    Love and best wishes, Sarah x

  3. Congratulations, Jenny! How exciting for you both! 🙂 I’m so glad that it happened so easily for you and I hope the morning sickness isn’t too terrible! 🙂

  4. Congratulations! I wondered why you didn’t seem to be posting much. 🙂 I hope you don’t have much morning sickness, I didn’t and it was a huge blessing. One of my first signs that I was pregnant was being really really tired. I realized it faster after the 1st one.

  5. Oh my gosh, exciting!! Congratulations!!

    On a side note, yours is the THIRD pregnancy announcement I have read this morning. Something is in the water!! 🙂

  6. Huge congratulations to you!! I know there’s a lot to learn & you’re missing your family more than ever right now but it will all be worth it when you meet your sweet June bug 🙂 So happy for you!!!
