My eggo is preggo


Thanks to everyone for your nice comments to my last post. It really touches me that you all care so much. :)

So yep, after 20 months of trying I am finally knocked up. I don't know how it happened... wait, I do know how it happened, I just don't know why it happened this time and not before. But of course I couldn't be happier.

I am due March 3rd and am currently 11 weeks and 2 days pregnant. OMG! We found out on June 25th, the same day that we signed all the papers for our new home. I'll never forget that day.

I think that I'm having a girl, my mom thinks I'm having a boy. I bet one of us is right. I really don't care either way. I think I'd be a good boy mom as I'm soooo not girly! ;) But knitting wise, I find cuter patterns for girls. Hehe. We should find out what's in there sometime in October.

Oh and now that I'm pregnant, be prepared to sometime read about boobies, morning sickness, stretch marks and all that fun stuff. I've been feeling nauseous since before I even found out I was pregnant, but it wasn't too bad... until last week. WTF? All my books tell me I'm supposed to start feeling better around 10 weeks and I get worse?

I am very exciting to start knitting for the little one but for some reason, I haven't cast on for anything yet. Everytime I want to, I convince myself that I should really try to finish my shawl first so I knit one row of it and it takes me forever and then I don't want to knit anymore. I think I'll start a blanket today, knit a bit on it and THEN go back to the shawl.

Oh also, I said last April that I would be on a yarn diet till the end of the year. When I made that decision, I told Chris that the only thing that would make me break that diet would be a pregnancy. Soooo... ;) I still haven't bought anything because I have yarn for the blanket and another baby project I want to start, but once we find out what we're having, I'll probably HAVE to buy some yarn. I'm sure I would have succeeded in my yarn diet if I hadn't gotten pregnant by the way... ;)

You are too cute.

Yep, definitely, either you or your mom is right.

Well, since I'm apparently having a 3rd boy, I totally think you should have a boy too - so that they can be buddies ;0)

I agree though, my Rav queue is all loaded up with girl patterns too. Especially since for 6 weeks they told us it's a girl. I'm going back for another U/S soon, so we'll see if they still say it's a boy, LOL.

SO HAPPY you're finally pregnant! And we'll be on maternity leave together for almost all of the time! (I'm only 9 weeks and 3 days ahead of you).

June 25th is a nice day to find out - that's my "dating" anniversary with my hubby! We met June 25, 2002. And I'm sure you'll remember that day forever. I still remember the day I found out I was pregnant with Sean! (Like it was yesterday and not over 4 years ago!)

ps- morning sickness CAN last the entire pregnancy. I know people who had it until the end. Not to scare you or anything..!

Hey, if there's any occasion to buy yarn, it's for your long-awaited for little one! Girl patterns are cute, but knitting for boys rocks too! Hang in there on the morning sickness, sometimes it just means you're overly tired. Rest, rest and REST! You're going to need it! :)

Oh, Caroline! When I read your last blog post, I actually squeeled for joy for you. My hubby was like - what is going on??? Your Mom is right: it will either be a boy or a girl.hahahaha You can always do some nice knit toys that will be good for either gender. A blanket or something. Believe me, most Moms I know got sick sick sick of pink everything when they had girls and blue everything if they had boys. adventurous with your color choices. Soooooo happy for you!

Mazal tov again! I'm so happy for you! Either way, boy or girl, you'll have a great time. Pregnancy isn't always fun, but it is definitely an amazing experience!

I've only recently started following your blog but congratulations!! I'll cross my finger for a boy, but thats because im biased with all nephews :D Can't wait to see the baby knits! I personaly think that boy knits are much more adorable this again could be my bias view.

Congratulations! A pregnancy is such a miracle! I look forward to seeing all your baby boy or girl knits! Funny you say you are not too girly with the pink background of your blog!!!
