Mocha revealed

A bunch of people have a bunch of questions! Since no one in blogger land and very, very few friends/family knew about this, they want answers!


One of the biggest questions is how far along are you...

18 weeks


due date...

August 6th, 2009. It happens to be 1 year and 4 days after Timothy's due date, and 6 days after his first birthday.



Nickname...


Mocha. For many reasons we have fallen in love with this nickname. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant I began to crave mocha's. I mean I NEED them! I don't normally drink coffee at all but he/she had other idea's (don't worry too much...the one I drink only has 35 mg of caffeine per cup and I limit myself to a few per week). My husband is a coffee-oholic. We can't drive past a Starbucks with out him getting a cup. I love chocolate (which is the main ingredient in a mocha)!!! And it is a cute gender neutral name.


Gender...

Yep and Nope. As Mocha's mommy and daddy, we get to know! But in case you are wondering...we aren't going to share! Heee Heeee


Health...

We went to our formal ultrasound this week and Mocha looks WONDERFUL. He is kicking and squirming, opening all of his fingers to wave to us, and making faces at us. She is measuring right on date. She is perfect in every way!



How did I keep this a secret for SO long...

Lots of hiding out in my house during the nausea and vomiting stage. A wonderful husband that "covered" for me while I was skipping church and events. And wearing lots of big clothes with zip up jackets.



Why did I keep this a secret for so long...

This is the big/hard one. I will start by saying that this has thrown me over the edge emotionally. I want to share more about this but it is little too much right now, as I have so much to tell. For now please understand that I am not able to treat this like a "normal" pregnancy and although I am filled with joy I am also filled with many more emotions.

Jennifer, I think this is all so wonderful and no one could blame you for keeping it private. I'm sorry that you are "not able to treat this like a normal pregnancy" I guess it's one of the battle scars. I can't imagine all of the emotions your are facing. I am sending so much luck and prayers your way. Congratulations!
