Well it's official...

...I'm pregnant and allowed to tell people. I'm hitting 12 weeks on Wednesday, but today I had my appointment and the Doppler thingy picked up a heartbeat. Phew! I haven't advertised this, but I miscarried last November and so I was nervous that I would again this time. However, this time there was happy news :)

We will find out what we're having in August sometime. If it's a girl: Zooey Lyn or Edith Lyn (Edie for short), or if it's a boy: Eli James. We're quite decisive. Surprising, I know. No jokes about if I'm still considering "Pencil" or "Seven (Evan for short)".

Symptoms: tired all the time!, nauseous some of the time, dizzy almost all the time. Craving: Taco Bell bean burritos with lots of red sauce, nectarines, zesty pickles (such a cliche, but does this count as a craving if I eat these regularly?), and various soups. Telling M: he sometimes thinks he has a baby in his belly, and he sometimes says he wants to poke/hit the baby. Yikes! When I'm due: January 16th, but I had M 10 days early.

Yay, Kendahl! Congratulations! --And great names. I am jealous of your collective ability to be decisive (and at 12 weeks, no less).

Congratulations Kendahl!! I am so happy for you and Ryan and of course Miles too! Miles will be a good big brother! :]
Love, Kristi
PS- I am VERY impressed with the fact that you and Ryan have already agreed upon "the names". John HATED the name deciding process, probably because I wanted to talk about it as soon as I found out the happy news! :]

Congrats! That's very exciting! It's fun to have a second baby because there's an older sibling to share in the joy of having a baby around!

Kendahl---yea! Though I already knew;I can relate that it is wonderful to get past the "safe" 12weeks zone. I think about you often...pretty much daily (though many of those thoughts are concerning my dance and thus selfish). I hope you start feeling better soon.
