6 weeks!

I took another HPT, and it's still positive! I only have more, so I'll test again in another week. I'm still feeling pretty good, but it's beginning to get obvious when it's time for me to eat more. So, it's back to eating every two hours for me! The gas seems to have gotten better, and I'm glad to say I still haven't experienced any nausea or food aversions yet. Exhaustion, though? It's definitely here. Jony was so nice this weekend and let me sleep in every day. Awesome.

In birthing news, we have chosen a midwife! We're sitting on it for a few days before making it official, but I'm fairly certain that we're on our road to our home birth!

Other big happenings this week is that we told both of our parents and siblings. We had frames with pictures of the grandkids + 1 extra spot. In that, we put a picture of Jeffrey in a shirt that says "Big Brothers Rock." Jony's sister noticed it pretty quickly with his family, but I had to ask what they thought of his shirt with my parents. Both families are pretty excited! They've already started asking questions about this home birth thing, and I'm sure we'll have plenty more coming our way. That's to be expected, though. We'll be inviting both of our moms to a prenatal appointment to meet the midwife and be able to ask her any questions they have of her.

Cruising right along!
