Ok... you can't... although I wish I could say that my chubby belly is in any way related to this little baby. At 4 weeks he or she is smaller than a grain of rice and definately not showing!

I haven't gone to the doctor yet (other than the clinic at school to verify my two postitive home tests) so I don't have a known due date yet - but we're figuring end of December.

Apparently four weeks is a little early to spread the good news but we're both SO EXCITED there was no way we could keep it to ourselves!

I'm inviting any and all advice because I'm clueless! A friend of mine (who is expecting her first baby in July) gave me a "What to Expect When You're Expecting" book that I'm already obsessed with.

Yea!!! We are so excited, too. Look at my blog. And who gave you the book? That's the exact book I told you to get. It's awesome! Love y'all

Congratulations! Such exciting news! We totally lived by that book when we were pregnant with Katie. After she was born we got "What to Expect the First Year" and then "What to Expect the Toddler Years". Yeah, we were a little obsessed too, but they were so helpful for clueless people like us. Happy pregnancy!

My advice: Own a Boppy, accept help and pray for it, buy Baby Einstein now so that you can use the bathroom by yourself later, get the Epidural, and do what you think over anyone else's advice because you will know what's right!
Congrats, Congrats, Congrats!

What a funny cartoon! We had not heard this good news. Perhaps this was your announcement! Fun!! Happy for you.

Yea!! Congratulations! I also liked "Your Pregnancy Week by Week", because it gave me something different to read each week. And who says 4 weeks is too early to spread the news?? If you're excited and ready to shout it from the rooftops, go ahead. We're all excited for you!!!

Congratulations Ivy! I hope your feeling well.Crackers before you even get out of bed seem to help and take naps as often as you can. I love being a grandma so will your Mom

IVY!!!! I'm SO excited for you!!! Enjoy not showing while it lasts!! I think at like 21 weeks I just started to balloon! Now I'm huge I feel like!
I'm really just so excited for you! It's the best!
Have you been sick at all? We need to chat and catch up!
Michael and I are moving to Henderson in August, so if you're ever in Vegas visiting Calder's family let me know!

Ahhh Ivy I totally wish that you were here so we could figure this out together! It's been a crazy couple of months for sure. Have you been sick at all?

Congrats to you! I am thrilled for you and that seems to be "THE BOOK". Kim has a copy of that as well and is also quoting things out of it...LIKE I DONT" ALREADY KNOW? Haha.
