Week 12

Saturday is the 12 week mark. I have been reading everything I can to try and understand what is going on. I have 3 books now. One is called What to expect when your expecting and the other two are for expecting fathers. They talk more about what to expect the first year rather than what the pregnancy is all about. There is a lot to learn for me. I know it all can't come from books but it is nice to be a little knowledgeable. That way maybe Kristen and I can have better conversations about what is going on and I can maybe understand what she is going through so I can help her any way possible.

I believe she has been feeling better this week. There was one day that she worried me and she felt really bad. She has been taking her vitamins and I think she has been eating well. I went to the store today and got her a WHOLE bunch of snack foods that I think are somewhat healthy and good for her to eat. I also got some chicken that we can cook and would be healthy for her to eat.

I am getting more and more excited about the baby. There is so much that we need to take care of and plan for. Money is going to be an issue we have to deal with and we are going to need to convert one of the bedrooms into a baby room. Everybody that we have talked to about the baby is so excited for us. I assumed that some people would tell us that we are dumb for having one so early but I haven't heard that once. It was very fast and Kristen and I both know that. We are happy that people are so supportive.

I keep thinking about how fortunate I am to have all of the blessings that are in my life. I have a beautiful wife and a great family. I have a big house that has plenty of room for guests and Kristen's brother to have the basement. Kristen and I both have good jobs and we are doing very well. God has truly given us many blessings.
