What Should You Expect...

...when you are expecting?

I'll tell you.

Bloating, and lots of it.
Inflating, uh, chest.
Extreme fatigue.
Constant dull nausea.
Desire to eat lots of toast. And ONLY toast.

But it's also kind of cool.



Don't worry, I took two more, just to make sure it wasn't a major fluke.

Yes people, according to four pregnancy tests, a doctor and an ultrasound... I have a little person growing in my ever expanding belly.

When life throws you a major (and extremely terrifying) curveball... I've learned you just have to go with it.

So everyone is invited to a birthday party for baby Ivins on August 4th.

You remember our deal where I get to name your first born? I've chosen "Pork 'N Beans", since you didn't let me name your cat that.

Kristina said...

When you said in your pre-birthday post that your birthday was interesting, I thought to myself, "I wonder if Jessica's pregnant?" I have a knack for guessing people are pregnant. Or something like that.

Congrats! Y'all will great parents and that is gonna be one cute gelato-lovin baby!

Ashley and Mikkel said...

Kimba said...

Con-FREAKING-gratulations!!!!! YEAH!!!! I've been waiting for a mini Reece since HIGH SCHOOL, and now the possibility of a mini Jess is way too much. Seriously you guys, congratulations! I'm so excited for you! Yeah for babies! It is the best thing ever, I promise. Hard to feel that when you're constantly on The Verge. Have you tried Seabands? You can get them at Walgreens. They helped me a bit. They're really attractive let me tell you, but at that point? You could have strapped a jock strap to my head and if it helped I would have worn it with pride. :) Love you both! Yeah!

Adam and Tara said...

Ms. Walker said...

Hooray! That's so exciting. I just have to comment that the picture of the pregnancy tests brings back an oh so familiar and frightening feeling for me. Hee Hee...How lucky was I to have you as a best friend at that time in my life? Pretty much THE LUCKIEST!! Jessica, come to bed!
