So, it is official. Paul and I are going to be parents. Scary, huh??? We are so excited and can't wait. Seriously, I have a feeling that this is going to be a long 9 months for me!

I met with the nurse last week and they estimate my due date to be September 1st, but it could change as I progress. I am praying that I have an ultrasound soon to determine exactly how far along I am. I will keep you posted.

We have already told everyone under the sun. I made the announcement official by posting it on Facebook so that the world would know:-) My family was excited. This will be the 3rd baby in the Huizinga family that will be born in 2009. Christmas will be extremely hectic next year! Paul's family was also super excited. We bought customized fortune cookies with fortunes that said:
"Thompson family hold on to your seat,
Soon there will be a new baby to meet!"

"Caden is no longer the only grandkid,
wait till you hear what Betsy and Paul did!"

"The Thompson family is having another,
Mac's going to get a little sister or brother!"

"A Thompson baby is on its way,
We hope you can make it for the big birthday!"

It was hilarious. Mom was screaming in the restaurant and Monique and Dad kept telling her to be quiet because they hadn't read their fortunes yet and didn't know what she was screaming about. It was so much fun!

Please pray that the pregnancy goes well and that we have a healthy baby come September. So far, I am feeling great. A bit of nausea here and there, but it is all for the good of the cause, right? We will keep you posted as the pregnancy progresses and I'll be sure to post pics as I get huge and fat:-)
