SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE...

We are expecting our 1st BABY!!!
Turns out the Bahamas treated us well...;)
Our new addition is due around November 30th!
Our Doctor thinks around Dec. 1st.
The ultrasound put us due on Nov. 27th!...We'll see!


The day we found out:

I was getting ready to go to lunch with my cousin Kiley on March 25th, and Dustin got a phone call...It was Cole...

He said to Dustin, "Are you sure Tash isn't pregnant?"

Dustin, "I don't think so, how come?"

Cole, "Cause I keep having dreams that she is.."

Me yelling from the bathroom, "What did he just say?"

Dustin, "Cole thinks your pregnant..."

Me, "That's it, I am getting a test just to make sure..."

Well, that afternoon, right before my Physiology class, I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive...I had to leave for class in 30 min. so we immediately told Dustin's parents, and after sitting through class for 3 hours and hitting a deer on the way home, we finally got to tell my Mom and Jerry! I have honestly NEVER been so excited!

Previous signs:

Back in February, we went to the Bahamas...'nuf said;)

Then...

When we went to Vegas for our Anniversary, and I was seriously so hungry...like every hour I was eating something....I knew I felt different, but I truly didn't think I was pregnant!

I was craving lemons...

I was EXTREMELY tired...

Yes, maybe even a little irritable at times...

But, thanks to Cole's "visions," and 3 pregnancy tests we found out at 5 weeks along!

We told our parents right away...the minute we found out. But considering the fact that we leave and sell for the summer, we thought we would have a BBQ at our house to tell the rest of our family in person... I made sugar cookies with "+" signs on them. Cole and Heather also announced that they are expecting baby #2. They wrote the cutest poem and had my sister read it to the whole family! What a great day!!!

(we also told our grandparents, right away...I bought a bottle of Prego for each of them and tied a blue and pink ribbon around the top! I tried to emphasize the Prego by adding quotations and underlining it... it took them a minute to catch on, but it turned out great!)

We told Dustin's sisters by showing them the bottles of Prego we bought for my grandparents! We told them that we bought them their favorite spaghetti sauce. Chas and Dez both said, "That's wierd...you bought us spaghetti sauce?" ha ha! And then we had to ask them what kind it was...after that they both caught on!!!;)


Update:

We have decided not to go sell this summer. We are going to miss our friends so much, but I am so excited to spend our first summer "married" in Utah! We have been thinking long and hard about what was best for us, and we decided maybe taking the summer to prepare for the baby, and having the summer for Dustin to find a steady job, was what we should do!

Yesterday, we heard our baby's heartbeat for the first time! What a neat experience! It is finally starting to sink in that in 6 1/2 months we will have a sweet baby!

Life is great! xoxo
