happy new year!

so yea. karl and i are expecting, adding a new addition to the family, pregnant, have a bun in the oven, knocked up, in the family way, eating for two, preggers, with child, um... i am running out of pregnancy slang... please contribute your favorites in the comment section.

bridget got her wish: we were pregnant at the same time!! not very long since she delivered mylee jayne shortly after this picture and i didn't actually know i was pregnant until a few days after this picture.

so this is our big BLOG announcement!! *HOPEFULLY* we have gotten to tell most of you in person or over the phone. *HOPEFULLY* friends and family that were sworn to secrecy did not tell you. and, if you knew, and you let the secret leak, well, that is dissappointing. for you. and the people that you told. because they got to find out second hand. and that sucks.
so here are the answers to the FAQs:
  • i am 13 weeks, 1 day (as of this morning). That is pretty much thru the first trimester/first third. (big sigh of relief!)
  • i have been pregnant since BEFORE halloween, i was pregnant in mexico! (BOO!), and for thanksgiving and all the happy hours and christmas parties in between and after. FAKE drinking is FUN. (fooled ya!)
  • karl and i agreed not to tell the world until we heard a heartbeat/had an US. we heard a strong heartbeat (160 something) at 12 weeks exactly right before xmas. doc says chances of a miscarriage at this point are SLIM to NONE. yea. it was a great christmas present to share. it made the secret worthwhile.
  • my official due date according to the doctor is july 5. but july 4th is much easier to remember.
  • we have our first Ultra Sound January 18 at 16 weeks. (i don't know why they measure it in weeks; it is secret doctor code. it is like measuring babies age in months. 18 months old? JUST SAY ONE.)
  • we are NOT finding out if it is a boy or girl. it is going to be a surprise. you can buy me things in green and yellow and orange (and even pink and blue if you are bold!). i promise it won't ruin the fun of buying baby gifts or decorating a nursery. (not that you have to buy us any gifts, but if you do it will still be fun!)
  • we don't have any names yet. ALTHOUGH john robus hills, eric desjardin hills, and phillip matthew price matheny hills HAVE already been suggested.
  • matt price is in the lead in the running for godparent. he has given us a presentation. though, if we have a girl, he might not be interested.
  • i am not really showing (i can tell. you probably can't.) i FOR SURE look bigger than that picture above! i will post a picture tomorrow or monday. you can be the judge. it just looks kinda like a beer gut. i have gained two pounds. pretty good for three months. momma said she didn't show till month 5 or so. i can wait.
  • um, let's see, this is getting lengthy. i feel good. i have had some morning sickness. (nausea and vomiting both.) karmically, i think that is good. i don't mind puking. it is those girls that HATE throwing up that shouldn't have to do it. i have had some cramping, a few migranes (new to me!) and some bloody noses. and some searing pains in my ass. literally. all of which doc said are fine and normal. i promise to try and not gross you out. it really hasn't been bad at all. i sleep a lot and i feel pretty normal!!

I will stop for now. I will try not to blog SOLEY about the pregnancy BUT i have been keeping it a secret for three months so I kind of need to get some of it OUT of my brain. i still feel nervous it's not real or something is going to happen, but we are really trying to enjoy this time, and i hope i can share a little of it with you all. if you have any more questions or i missed something major, let me know and i will address it next blog.

horray!!! that's so super exciting! you ARE good at fake drinking--at first as i read this, i was becoming concerned that you'd been drinking with us at the x-mas party without knowing you were preggers (whew, good thing you knew, huh?). congratulations!

melissa said...

oh little kathleen. baby is sooo happy to not hide the dirty truth any longer. : ) i'm so happy for the both of you, and if i can be of assistance in any way (like, i'm pretty sure i can help you eat for two!), let me know pigeon. love love. xoxox

katie...congratulations! i just heard from my parents who talked to your parents that you are totally preggos! so being that i randomly communicate with you through this blog...i just want to extend my sincere heartfelt congratulations and wish you the easiest pregnancy ever! and as for me ( a frequent reader of your blog) i would not mind hearing all about your pregnancy!!!!!

Lauryl Lane said...

oh my! i had no idea! i mean, no idea that you were even contemplating having children anytime soon. wow. congrats to you both and wow... i think this will be the only baby of my chio friends since... since kristen had elizabeth like two years ago or something. actually, makalie had a baby this past summer but i don't really keep in touch with her anymore (aside from her email, "hi, i had a baby! here are pictures of her..."), so, wow. babies. yikes. i'm scared of them and the responsibility involved, but you and karl are going to rock the parenting thing. well, you already have a house, so that helps. and two jobs. that helps too. ;) YAY!!! i'm getting excited! i might even try knitting a blanket or something like that. maybe. ;)

Leslie Robus said...

ok - so I so meant to call you this week and say congrats! b/c telling karl through the phone when he called john just wasn't the same as telling you personally! So...we are so very excited for the two of you. You will be a wonderful mommy and karl will be a great dad too! I can't believe there is going to be a little hills!!! We will be in the rock in a couple of weeks and will have to get together...who knows maybe i will still call you w/ congrats messages! love ya!!!

KAT!!! That's AWESOME! You guys are going to be such great parents! I can't wait to watch you progress the next six months. Wow! Kat's having a baby. Does that mean we're old? I hope not...

Also, what do you mean you don't "mind" puking? Are you CRAZY? I can't stand it. You have a good outlook about it though.

P.S. Makalie had a baby? What? Lauryl and I need to talk!

Megan said...

I am too excited for yall! And I think it's great that you aren't going to find out the sex of the baby. I love surprises!!!

Stacia said...

CONGRATULATIONS, I am so happy for you!

HOOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CONGRATULATIONS, KAT AND KARL!!!!!!! I am SO happy for you guys!! And hooray for not finding out! They have shirts that say "I'm not finding out" for when you get big and people get annoying. You need one. I shall look online. Also, um hello how cool if baby Hills and I shared a bday!! July 3rd anyone?!

Listening to the stories from Jenny's wedding about you not drinking makes me laugh my ass off!

mr. mups said...

Congrats Katie and Karl! You will be a wonderful parents ! Even though you're having your own child now, don't forget that if I have ugly children I am still sending them, FedEx, directly to you. Just kidding, love ! Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy and take care of yourself. Can't wait to hear more updates!

Lindsay said...

I am very excited for you guys! Congrats!!!! If you need any real world practice, just come and hang out with Will and I for a few hours. It really is a great time; enjoy it. He/she will be here before you know it. Congrats again!!!!!

Leah Billings said...

Congratulations you two!! What funtastic news. You sure fooled me at the x-mas party. Speaking of x-mas, you guys will have a little baby at next years party. Wow! That's exciting. Good luck over the next few months, and I say blog about it all you want. This is such a cool time in your life!!
