JoJoBean Blessings

God helped adjust my attitude. (He actually kick started it because I was doing a terrible job of changing it by myself).

Key Terms:
JoJoBean = combination of Joanna and Benjamin (potential baby names)
SnowBod = body like a snowman
TTC = Trying To Conceive

Despite the barfiness and light headedness, I am overwhelmed with blessings in this pregnancy. Little JoJoBean is growing and meeting all of his/her marks at every visit. Heart rate is great, weight gain is good, and no severe pain or bleeding.

Our families are THRILLED about our pregnancy - this is the first grandbaby for both families and the first grandchild for my parents. 

Lisa (my sister-in-law) is due a month after me so we've been able to celebrate and commiserate together.  She's been just as sick as I have so it's been awesome to walk through it with her. (we also were able to walk through our TTC year together). Christmas is going to be crazy!!

My belly quickly expanded into a volleyball while my arms and waist have shrunk. I never thought I would be one of those women who just "showed" in the stomach, I thought I would balloon everywhere. I'm rockin' this snowbod while I have it!

I have a job within an organization that promotes family. I wasn't afraid to tell my boss I was pregnant - I was thrilled to tell him!

We have a church family that loves us. I especially adore my small group - they're full of love, laughs, and wisdom.


God's good, man. God is so good.
