First Post

No pictures to post yet, but will add some as soon as they are available. For those who don't know our story, we have wanted to be parents since we married just over 4 years ago. After trying on our own and with the help of doctors for almost 2 years, we decided that adoption was the way to go. Enter MIC...that's our nickname for the child we will eventually get from China. We have been waiting for MIC for over 2 years now and unfortunately the wait is getting longer. This past summer while other people were going to the beach or taking a Disneyland vacation, we were doing fertility treatments. Although we both consider this a miracle baby, it is by no means a surprise pregnancy. We worked very hard to get here.

I am about 8 weeks along, due May 17th. I have had 2 sonograms already (those pics will be posted once I get the disc from the doctor). As you may have read in Wrangler's blog, I have morning sickness all day long. I am taking some medicine which lets me eat, but for the most part I feel lousy. I am hoping that this will pass soon.

I wanted to set up a separate blog for the pregnancy because not everyone is going to care about all the stuff I plan to say in this one. I know my mom will love this since she lives in Michigan and can't be here to experience all of this with me. I will bring everyone up-to-date throughout the next few posts. Things like how Paul and I found out, how we told our parents, and how we came up with the name for this blog. Please feel free to contact me if you want more information about how we got here.

Congratulations! We are so happy for you two and can't wait to meet the little one!! Do you have names picked out yet?? By the way, try carbohydrates here and there for the nausea...that's supposed to help! Although NOTHING helped me...my nausea was horrible and lasted 6 months. I hope you have better luck! See you soon. Love Jen, Pete & the kids
