And baby makes three...

Nick and I are so excited to announce that we will be having a little one join the crazy Long family in January!! It only took two home pregnancy tests and one blood test to make us realize :-) We feel so blessed to have this little baby coming into our family and can hardly wait to see babies little face! Needless to say, it's all we talk about around here! I am feeling pretty good - just so tired! I feel like I could fall asleep anywhere, anytime. I will take fatigue over throwing up any day though! I am sure people will read this and wonder if I will be okay considering my transplant and the answer is yes. I worked very closely with my doctors to taper certain medications and this was definetly a very planned, prayerful pregnancy. I have a really good doctor that specializes in post transplant pregnancies so I am in really good hands. But your prayers on our behalf are always welcome and appreciated!

Congratulations! I remember when I found out I was pregnant. We had been trying forever and then when it finally happened I was so nervous! I bit off all my fingernails :) I am so happy for both of you! Being a mom is the best job Ive ever had :)

Fisher Family said...

Awesome news Amanda and Nick!!! It made my day. I have to admit when I read the title on your previous post I got excited, then saw it was about your new car and not a baby. (A new car is exciting too just not same.) Now to see this post the excitment returns. You will be such a good Mama. So, so happy for you and your family.

Stacey said...

Congratulations! I'm excited for you too. I understand about the fatigue, but you're lucky you haven't been sick. Being parents is harder than you could ever imagine, but knowing you, you'll pass with flying colors. I can't wait to see pictures and hear all the stories. Be prepared to have your blog overtaken by the baby. That's all we ever post. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well and we will certainly pray for you.

losing my needles said...

I'm with the Fisher family in saying that your post titles have been quite misleading... "Start Spreading the News" "A New Addition to the Family." It's a good thing that "Baby Makes Three" was actually an announcement. Anyway, Congratulations! I'm totally excited for you. I guess I need to start on that book for you...

Kayla said...

Congrats, Amanda and Nick. Go ahead and rest as much as you need!!

Starley Family said...

Becky said...

Hey! Such wonderful news! So now you have 2 new editions to the family. The car and the baby! Not listed in the order of importance, or coarse. Congrats you guys. We are so happy for you!

Starley Family said...

You've been Tagged!!!! Go to my blog to see what lovely tasks I have pegged you for.
Lol, Stace

Aaron & Melissa said...

Now that the word is officially out, we can join the rest of the happy friends and say CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so glad things are going well with the pregnancy. We wish we were going to be here to see the little one born. We'll just have another excuse to visit you guys to see him or her!

The Bradley's said...

YAY! YAY!! YAY!!! I am SO excited for you guys. I thought I would sleep through the first three months with this one...too bad the kiddos wouldn't let me. :) Never fear, around week 12 I woke up one morning feeling great and it's been much easier since then. I hope you have the same experience! You'll be an awesome mommy. I'm SO excited. Did I say that already? Along with the rest of the world? :)

The Taylors said...
