We’re Pregnant!

Two lines on both. Yep, that's conclusive evidence.

Well, it is probably more accurate to say that J is! We found out in January that my beautiful wife is expecting our first child, and it has been an exciting and bumpy ride since. People talk about morning sickness and having a rough first trimester, but I had no idea what they meant (besides a general feeling of sympathy) until these past few months. As some of you know, morning sickness can happen at any time, and it can happen all the time. Unfortunately, that’s what the wife endured through January and February.

However, we are now into the second trimester, which we were looking forward to most eagerly, and things are looking up. J feels much better. She even cooks sometimes now! We also just got back from going to church for the first time in a while; J just wasn’t up to going for a month or two. I’m overjoyed to that she’s feeling more like herself these days. It feels as if I have my wife back.

We are still wrapping our minds around having a kiddo of our own, but it helps to have friends who have already gone through pregnancy or are experiencing its unique combination of joy and discomfort right now. We really appreciate all the well wishes and prayers from all of you, and we’ll post news and pictures as the pregnancy rolls on.

Here is a picture of the wife about thirteen weeks in:

J is holding back her dress a bit to emphasize the bump that is daily becoming more and more evident.

Oh, and for those of you who wonder, we are due September 26!


  1. Congratulations to the both of you. I am on my 6th months of pregnancy and i must say I really hate the first term of my this whole thing. haha..

  2. Congrats guys! You are going to be fantastic parents to Baby E!

  3. Congratulations! Jen, you are the cutest pregnant lady I have seen as of late (and I have quite a few friends that have been through this process!) I hope things continue to get better!

    Love, Mandy & Justin

  4. Ug, morning sickness. I remember my wife having it even into her 2nd trimesters. I loved this update and hope you’ll throw many more to us as things progress.

  5. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not yay for morning sickness of course, but ya for Jen being preggers! I love it!

    Love the cute bump, too!

    Jen looks amazing here, of course!

  6. Yeehaw!!

  7. Mom S. just showed me the photo of Jenni and
    Baby E. You both look great! Glad to hear that
    you’re nearly over the Egyptian flu (the strain
    that affects “mummies”)–those first few months
    can be pretty rough.
    I understand you’ll find out whether you’re carry-
    ing a boy or a girl the first part of May. We’ll
    be anxiously awaiting that news!
    Take care! Keep in touch!
