Big Announcement!

So remember how I said I've been in a bit of a rut and out of energy lately?  Well...now you get to find out why!
(Our last name is type of fish)
Joe and I are expecting our first child!

We started telling our family and closest friends a few weeks ago, but I wanted to wait until after the first trimester to post it on the blog (and after I told everyone I wanted to tell over the phone)!

There are a lot of questions we get when we tell people, so I'll answer a few of those for y'all!

How far along are you?
14 weeks, as of Sunday!

When are you due?
March 29, 2015!  Ironically, Joe graduates on March 27th!  I guess the end of March is going to be a very busy, life-changing time for us!

Are you going to find out the gender?
I think we're going to wait until he/she is born to find out!  Everyone we've talked to has said it's so much fun to wait, so I think that's what we'll do.  I kind of want gender-specific stuff, though...so we'll see :)

Were you guys "trying"?
Haha...no.  I actually didn't find out I was pregnant until I was about 8 weeks along.  HOWEVER, we have always talked about having kids, so this must be God's timing for us to start a family.  We are very excited!

How have you been feeling?
Overall, very good.  I have had a little bit of nausea/morning sickness, but I think I could count those days on both hands.  The nausea is normally bad-smell-induced.  Taking out the trash has been ROUGH the past 6 weeks!

The main thing I have been feeling is SUPER TIRED when I get home from work.  That's why I haven't been blogging much--I've been falling asleep on the couch between 8-9 each night!

Do you have any cravings/aversions to food?
Not really.  I have wanted sweets a lot more, and there are some times where nothing looks appetizing to me.  Overall, though, I've been able to eat my normal diet and not have any issues!

Are you showing yet?

I think so!  That, or I'm getting fat due to the fact that I haven't been exercising as regularly!

And a question that y'all specifically might have...are you going to blog about your pregnancy?
Yes, probably.  I will probably post something once a week about things that I've been feeling/that have been happening.  Nothing too graphic, don't worry!

If you have other questions for me, leave them in the comments :)  Back tomorrow with a review of a cool fitness app!
