And then there were 3....

Can you guess it from the title? Yepp, I'm pregnant!! I know, its crazy and unbelievable!! But we are THRILLED!!!!

Do you want the story? I will list the basics first then I will get to the story...

How far along are you? I am 12 weeks!

When are you due? October 20th

When did you find out? I found out on February 6th, the day after Bryce left on his deployment...

Was this planned? Ummm not really. I wasn't on bc so we knew it could happen but didn't think it would happen the first month! Actually, we knew it wouldn't happen on the first try! God had better plans...

How have you been feeling? GREAT!!! I haven't really had any morning sickness at all. I have gotten sick a couple of times but it was completely random. My appetite? Now thats a different story! It's finally coming back but for about 4 weeks, I couldn't eat anything! Nothing sounded good! I think I lost about 2 pounds!

Are you showing yet? I can tell that I am but when other people look at me, they probably think I just ate a little too much for dinner. ha!

Is Bryce excited? He is sooooo excited!! He seems more excited than me actually! He always talks about the baby!

Is it a boy or girl? Still too early to tell. Not even sure when I will find out. I heard you can find out as early as 14 weeks now but it will probably be around 18 weeks before I find out.

Next appointment? I go on April 15th for my next appointment.

Ok enough of the questions...now on to the good stuff...

Like I said, I found out the day AFTER Bryce left for his deployment. If I assumed I was pregnant before he left, of course I would have taken a test...but I didn't! The night Bryce left, I went to a friends house to stay the night. I was telling my friend, Kristie, all these weird things that were going on. I was craving spicy foods like crazy and I was always sleepy. She said, "Liz, you could be pregnant". I said, "Nah, I dont think so". She said, "Yes, you could definitely be pregnant".

So I went home that next morning and took a multivitamin and threw up almost immediately. So, I gave it up and took a test. Sure enough, it was positive! I texted Bryce and told him to call me as soon as he could!!

That evening, we talked on skype and I told him the news. He was like, "REALLY?" And ALL SMILES!!! It was precious!! He was so excited...me on the other hand..I was just in utter shock and disbelief! Also a little scared! But I got over that real quick!!

We are so excited and cant wait for our little baby to get here! God has blessed us so much and I know there are good things to come in our future!!

More to come about how I told our families....
