It’s true, there is a baby Shurtz on the way. We found out at the end of August that we would be expecting. The baby is due April 27th, 2011. We are super excited. The first part of my pregnancy was a little rough but really not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Instead of morning sickness I had night sickness, so this meant early bed times. Aaron had to learn how the talent of making your own food while airing out the house so your wife can’t smell any of the remains. I did find a friend in the porch swing when food smells my stomach upset. Now in month 4 and I’m feeling SO much better. Tomorrow we find out the sex of the baby. Aaron was hoping for a boy but I know if it’s a girl she will have him smitten and wrapped around her finger! When we first got the test results back from the doctor Aaron asked me if it was a typo on the report J I think he was a little scaredJ None the less we are both very excited for this new stage of our lives and I think with the help of all our family we have been trained well to be good parents. I haven’t thought much about names yet…nothing has really struck me to be that amazing or perfect enough. We’ll start thinking about names more seriously after the ultrasound. I have been very bad at taking pictures of my belly, mostly because I haven’t felt like it was growing much until recently.
This is how we told our families. We convinced them Polly had a cute new outfit to show everyone, then brought her out in this. Everyone was very surprised and it was really fun to see everyones reactions!
This is me at 10 1/2 weeks, just a little tummy! And I look a little sleepy, I've always had a hard time keeping my eyes open for pictures.
