The Best Mothers Day Gift...

...Is finding out you are going to be a mom!

We lost several babies a couple of years ago and haven't "tried" since. We found out a couple of weeks ago that we are expecting unexpectedly : ) I have a fantastic doctor who did an ultrasound right away to see how things are going and it's all good! We saw the fluttering little heartbeat and strongly developing fetus (I totally cried right there on the table!). I'd post the ultrasound pictures but at this point it's just a little white blob. We were informed that the chance of miscarriage is less than 5% at this point so we are very HAPPY!

So it's no wonder to me now why I've felt so unmotivated the last couple months. Besides being absolutely nauseous, sick, and tired I am feeling good in my head and heart! I'm excited for Monday - I'm going to get back to work in the studio (finally) and life should be getting back to "normal". Hopefully I'll have some new jewelry to post soon : )

Oh - did I mention I'm due December 25th? Yikes!
