And then there were three...

Yes! We are pregnant and really excited. Jason and I (yes, this is Ashley typing) were late to church one day (Jan 20th) and had been praying about what in the WORLD I was supposed to be doing after graduation now that I had quit my job. There had even been one very interesting blessing given that just confused us further. Anyway, we sat in the foyer at church waiting for sacrament to get over so we didn't disturb anyone. There were a couple kids playing out there and a cute little boy started babbling at me (no real words) so I played with him for a second. Next thing I know, I look up and Jason has tears coming down his face! I was so utterly confused. He shook his head like, "Don't ask now, later." So we went in to the chapel and he sits down, leans over, and says, "I think we should have a baby." I asked him a few questions, then we realized we weren't listening at all. So we sat through the rest of sacrament, then found an empty room/closet space and talked instead of going to Sunday School. We got our first positive pregnancy test on the 10th of Feb. and a doctor confirmation on the 15th, which is when we called the fam. We are really excited. Jason wants a boy, but I don't care which we get. So far I have been dizzy, had headache and been REALLY tired, but I haven't thrown up yet and only had a little bit of nausea. Thank goodness; I hate throwing up.

I thought I'd left a comment earlier, but it didn't come up, so I'll try again:
Congratulations, once again!!! We are very excited for you. I'm sure I'll be more in touch as time goes on.
Oh, and how many weeks along are you now?
(you probably ought to preface everything you write with how far along you are in weeks, because I'll always be asking) :)
Anyway - I look forward to hearing how things are going. Keep us updated!
Oh, and I thought it was funny that I started writing my birth stories right before we found out. Perhaps they will be more interesting to you now!
Good luck to you both
- Kristen
