Now we can share our news...

Happy New Year Everyone!

We had a great Christmas over with Matt's folks in Cape Breton. My folks from BC came out for a week as well. Fun was had by all!

On Christmas Day we shared our news with our parents.... we are pregnant and due in early July!

We had kept it a secret from the parents so we could tell them in person at Christmas. It was so hard to hold in! I am pretty sure I told everyone in Kugluktuk that I was pregnant because I just had to share my news with someone!

We gave both sets of parents a frame with pictures of baby items out of the Sears catalogue and baby stickers. It took all of them a few minutes to figure it all out- I will post pictures on the weekend.

So far it has not been a fun pregnancy! I have been so sick I have missed a lot of work. The nausea and vomiting became so bad I have to be on medication for it. But it looks like everything is going well! I will be getting my ultrasound in about 3 weeks when the traveling ultrasound team is back in town. That will also give us a better due date.

So life up here in the North is going to change as well know it! However, a couple of elders here in town have told us we are having twins..... now that would be a shock to the system!

Hahaha..... oh dear Kara :) being sick is no good at all... I was going to make you guys a diaper bag, but once I finished the other one I was making, it was too painful to make another. Gah. Frustrating pattern. So, I guess I'll be whipping out the knitting needles to make hats for baby Went :) Can't wait! Am hoping to head up for a visit this summer to visit & lend a hand... much love to you all!
