We're Having a Baby!

Yes, we're heading to the hospital today to have a baby. A what??????? A BABY! I had not revealed my pregnancy to the internet world over the past several months. (Ok, nine months...)

And I was really going to post today about how I was due in a couple of weeks and we both felt it was time to "reveal" the nursery room we were decorating and to announce the pregnancy to my bloggy pals. I even made a new blog header over the weekend. (I have added it now, to the top of the blog.)But, things don't always work out like you think they will and last night, my water membrane ruptured. So, we are getting packed up to go to the hospital in an hour....

Am I nervous now or what? I was not planning on going this early...and I'm not even sure what to write about. I've wanted to write about the pregancy this whole time and yet we chose to keep it private. I had terrible morning sickness and well all kinds of other symptoms that go along with being pregnant.

So, I just wanted to quickly type out what is happening and explain why I have been so secretive about my upcoming "life changes" which I hinted to in my post about the changing seasons. Also, I probably will be pretty busy very soon so I may not be available to blog but I did ask dear hubby to bring his laptop to the hospital. We are not completely packed and ready so he may forget... One of the baby's recent ultrasound pictures...look at that yawn!

She was tired from all the testing!

Keep us in your prayers! I have been praying consistently and asking God to keep the baby safe and healthy. I am looking forward to meeting our sweet baby girl and I am nervous at the same time. Be back to write soon. I'll leave you with some pictures of the nursery...

Clouds on the ceiling by Dear Hubby and StepDaughter #1. Subtle but soft and pretty. We went with pink of course and a "shabby chic" stripe pattern with aqua polka dots. Of course, now, this is my favorite room in the house! I will be spending lots of late nights there soon. :-)

There are lots of squealing and a couple of tears of joy here in the Oliver Rain household. Jillian, I am soooo happy for you. Motherhood is such a wonderful thing and I know you will LOVE having a baby girl. I'm sending prayers and good, positive thoughts your way, my friend. And a little love too!

The nursery looks so pretty, perfect for a baby girl. And that is the sweetest little yawn. You are going to do great.
