Thank you ALL so much for your sweet comments. I loved seeing all of the comments from people who read but have never commented before. Hi to you all!

It was so fun to sit back yesterday and read all of the blog comments, twitter comments and facebook messages.
That is until somebody told Luke congratulations on Facebook and he said he was still waiting on a blood test to prove if it was his.
Dear Lord that man wears me out.
We are so thankful to have so many people praying with us in this journey. It is such a nerve wracking time but I am learning to trust God every step of the way.
I know worry is bad, and now it's really bad because I don't want the baby to feel my "worries" so I am practicing lots of faith and trust.
Imagine that.
I know some people choose to wait until the 1st trimester is over to make the news public, and I understand that. But I was just so exited to share our secret and I knew that so many of our friends would commit to praying for our baby during this time. It was too special to wait!
Here are some of my pregnancy facts right now:
  • I will be 11 weeks on Wednesday and I am due March 16th (2 days after my birthday)
  • I feel great! I only felt a little nauseous weeks 6 and 7 and nothing sounded good to eat. But after that I have felt great and never got "sick" (throwing up).
  • Are you ready for this?? I HATE Chick Fila. I can't handle it right now. I ate it during week 7 and now I want to die if somebody mentions eating there. I feel like I have betrayed my first love. This is what heartbreak feels like.
  • I am tired ALL. THE. Time. I think pregnant women should be allowed to only work part time during the 1st trimester. Some days it has been so hard for me to stay awake while working.
  • I am clearly craving Cheez-its and could eat a box a day if I let myself. But I don't. I only allow myself half a box.
  • I have the best husband ever. He has been so good to me during this time. From my crazy worries of "I just don't' feel pregnant today do you think that's bad?" All the way to fending for himself for dinner because the absolute last thing I want to do is cook dinner (well second to last thing, eating Chick Fila ranks as the #1 last thing I want to do right now)
  • Yes we will be finding out what the gender is. And I already feel like I know. I know I don't really "know" but I'm 99% sure I'm right. :-) Of course Luke thinks I'm crazy.
So I think that's all for now! I think I answered all of the questions that were left in comments but if you have another one feel free to ask. I was always curious about what pregnancy was like and now that I'm going through it I am happy to share. I have already discovered things that "they" don't tell you will happen. That is a future post!
Also, several of you mentioned that I don't follow you on Twitter. If you follow me on Twitter but I don't follow you will you please email me your twitter name? I don't ever not follow anyone on purpose, you probably just got lost in the mix! You can email it to

"he said he was still waiting on a blood test to prove if it was his."

SO FUNNY. Sounds like something my husband would say.

I want to follow you on Twitter but can't find your name. I'm @shortpixy.

Kristy said...

I am cracking up that Luke said that! My hubby would joke around and say dumb stuff like that when I was pregnant with baby #1- the child that looks exactly like him!!! Hahaha

I follow you on twitter! I'm @halljk3.

One Day said...

Luke is too funny! I am so happy for both of you!!

Jamie said...

I know what you mean about Chick fil a. I am 14 weeks pregnant and I HATE the thought of it right now. And the tired thing, don't get me started. I feel like I could fall asleep and if no one bothered me, stay that way until February! So excited for you!

Anonymous said...

I feel like you are having a boy- I have never once been wrong about guessing a gender, though I suppose there is a first for everything. Lifting your baby up in prayer!

Jesslee said...

Being exessively tired was one of the reasons I first took a pregnancy test and sure enough that was the cause. I follow you on Twitter and I'd love for you to follow me :) @justbecausejess

Ashley E. said...

I feel like your having a boy too! When I was pregnant, one morning I ate a chicken biscuit from Chick fil a and then went to the mall...well I ended up running out of the mall literally two minutes after i had walked in and hurling by my car. I couldn't eat Chick fil a for a LONG time after that!!!

Megan said...

You know everyone is dying to see your bump when it starts to show! You will make one adorable pregnant person! I'm praying for a healthy pregnancy!

Emily said...

gosh you are just so absolutely adorable:) I am so excited for you and happy that I can be a part of it all:) When are you coming to visit me and cate?? She wants to meet you:)
I am laughing about the cheez its and luke eating the last ones! Ryan ate my bread at dinner one night and I cried! Ha! I was just that hungry! Oh and the tiredness! I remember that too... but its good because your body is working harder than it ever has!! Working hard growing that precious lil baby in your belly:) love ya

Emily said...

Oh and ps.. I told everyone after my first ultrasound.. my mom said that way I had more people praying for our baby!!

K said...

I normally LOVE chick-fil-a too but absolutely could not handle it early in my second pregnancy.

Don't be too sure that you're right on the gender. I felt absolutely 100% positive that my first was a boy and when I found out she was a girl I had a hard time getting over my disappointment because I was so set on a boy. Anyway, I'm sure you'll be happy with either! I'm like you, I couldn't wait to tell the world my news. I don't see how some people can keep it secret for months! Praying you have an uneventful and smooth pregnancy! Congrats again :)

Ams said...

I am so excited for you!
And I can't believe Luke wrote that on facebook... he kills me!!!

Mrs. Classic said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to watch you raise a little one in the Lord!

Hilary said...

Congratulations! That is so exciting. I can't wait to hear more details :)

Cari said...

Congratulations! I'm just catching up with your last post. How exciting!

I am on twitter, twitter.com/booksbrooksme

Becca said...

Oh I remember that level of exhaustion. That's why I haven't gotten pregnant again, I can't figure out how you can do it when you have another kid running around. Because I pretty much just slept all the time while I was pregnant! (ps- kidding about that being why I'm not pregnant again - we're adopting instead) :-)

Erica said...

Congratulations on your new "twig." Loving Luke's comment, my husband would probably say something similar. I'm excited to follow your pregnancy, I hope it continues to progress smoothly!

Courtney said...

I was going to say boy too. That was the first picture I got in my head when you announced the news. Who knows though!! Congratulations again!

kels said...

yeah BABY!! congrats, Megan!! how exciting! :) praying for your growing family.

Jess said...

I am so happy for you both!!

I hope you return to your Chick-Fil-A love.... even if it's after Baby Tree comes.

Totally get the "pregnancy wonders".... I'm so curious to experience it for myself (though that is YEARS down the road). Can't wait to read your "they never told me this" post, lol.

jenn said...

what your husband said is hilarious!!! =)

i am so happy for you guys!!

i follow you on twitter - not sure if you follow me (@jenngetts)

Sweet Simplicity said...

WHAT??? No Chick-fil-a? I think that is how you know you are pregnant. :)

Sweet Simplicity said...

You know, I guess it could be worse. You could be craving Chick-fil-a and then not be able to get it on Sunday. haha.

Rachel said...

I can't believe the CFA thing!! How crazy!

I worry about being pregnant during the first trimester and teaching. I just don't know how I'll do it. I've heard so many stories of people being so tired that first trimester and I seriously don't know how I'll teach. I suppose I'll just have to use my sick days to get some sleep!

Jennifer said...

I cannot believe you aren't eating CFA right now! That's amazing! I hope you like it again. I ate a lot of my favorite foods during the first trimester and then couldn't eat them again until the 3rd trimester. It just took some time for them to taste good again!!

I am just so excited for you!

the rigdons said...

YAAAY for a baby tree!! seriously so excited for you guys- having a baby is the BEST!

Kim said...

I have the same worry problems. This pregnancy has been a test for me (even though we've been so blessed with a healthy pregnancy) - I just struggle with it so much. We're almost done now and I'm terrified to give birth! I guess I just have to choose faith over fear even though the fear screams at me! I can't wait to see our sweet baby though :)

And I thought for SURE the baby was a boy and lo and behold it's a girl. I guess I know nothing! Can't wait to hear what you are having. Hope you get some energy back soon!!

Heather said...

So sorry about the chick fil a thing!! That stinks! You are almost out of your 1st trimester, wow! I can't wait to hear what you will be having, either way, that baby will be adorable. You hubby made me laugh about his comment on the paternity!! HA!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

In my first trimester, I hit a slump at 2.00 literally every day. I didn't know how I would make it. But somehow I did. Don't worry, your energy will make it back to you soon!

My husband said the exact same thing Luke did. What is wrong with them?! Then she came out looking just like him. There's your blood test buddy!

Nicole said...

Hi, I just found your blog through Kelly's Korner and congratulations on the new baby! My husband and I are also expecting our first and our due date is March 15th so it is exciting to be "going through" this process with someone. Praying for you!

Kassie said...

Wow Megan, a million congrats!!! Looking forward to meeting your new Baby Leaf. ;) You will just be the cutest pregnant girl! And the blood test thing by your hubs: hysterical! Men... :)

And I follow you on Twitter! I just got one a couple weeks ago: @kassiemf.

The Shabby Princess said...

Congratulations to you and Luke, what an exciting time for you!

You will be an amazing mommy!

Heather said...

I thought I commented earlier, I guess maybe it didn't go through. So happy for you and I can't wait to hear what you are having! You are almost through your 1st trimester,woo-hoo!! This baby is going to be adorable! Congrats again!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

So excited for you guys!

Cindy said...

Congrats to you! Being pregnant is such an exciting time!

Stolen by Mullen said...

Oh Megan...all too soon you will definitely start feeling pregnant! :) I know how that feels though - I took pregnancy tests ALL THE TIME! Remember that as you worry about how that big baby will come out - that that is the easy part...this 9 months (it's actually 10) is the toughest - you make it through that and you will breeze through the delivery!!

Lucky in Love said...

Dude...I feel the exact same way about Chick-fil-a. It is so, so sad. But the thought of a chicken sandwich just grosses me out!

But waffle fries?

Now those sound pretty good.

Margaret said...

I've been reading for a while and am de-lurking...but I wanted to tell you congratulations!! You will be a wonderful mother!

ps - I totally have the same complex about medical issues (i.e. your frequent trips to the ER post). That is too funny someone else is like me!!

Meghan said...

I have never commented before, but wanted to say congrats! How very exciting! I just requested you on twitter, I am the_meggo. :)

Tabbie:) said...

Mrs. EDO said...

Catching up on my neglected Google Reader...Congrats on being preggo! I'm 20 weeks right now, and I'm still having major problems deciding what I want to eat... I know I'm hungry, but I usually at a loss to decide what exactly I want!

I can't wait to follow your progress! :)

Suz said...

How exciting! So, after reading your latet post, I'm totally going with a boy!! I'm wondering if that is how you are leaning! :)

They say salty greasy foods = boy and sweets = girl! :)
