Ndidzakhala mwuana…

This is Nyanja for we are having a baby. We’re pregnant!!! We told our parents this weekend. I am 14 weeks along and my due date is February 28th. We will be cutting our trip a little shorter than planned. Our plan is to head back to the States at the end of January and deliver in Birmingham. We have a physician here in Lusaka. She is wonderful. I have seen her once already to get an ultrasound. We will go for our next checkout at 20 weeks.

I have been feeling fine. The only time I start to feel sick is if I wait too long to eat. I am not really showing but I can tell that my body is changing. I was relieved to be out of the first trimester. It is becoming more real.

I have decided to take update photos and post them on the blog. Since I am in such a beautiful country I decided that I would make the most of my background. I do wish I could be closer to share this wonderful time, but until I return my blog will have to be our bond. Love you and miss you all.
