The Wife and I are Expecting a Baby!

It has been a long journey thus far, but The Wife and I are expecting a baby.  Missed the Journey?  Well, it went from:

Then Yesterday, when the doctor pointed to the screen and said this is your little yolk sack (kind of gross they call it that but whatever).  When I asked what that flicker in the middle is, he responded, “the heart.”  Craziness

Then they turned the sound on, and you could actually hear the heart beat.  I know we are early on but the Doc was optimistic so it breaths a sigh of relief into the situation.

Just like I have brought you along the ride for debt repayment and attempting to get my financial life in order, I hope to bring you through My Journey of a pregnant wife (scariness) and then raising our child!

    Congrats Evan, I look forward to reading about your newest journey.

    My wife and I went through a miscarriage too (I can still remember the date of the Dr. appointment). But less than a year later we had our first child – he’ll turn 3 this summer. We are having our second in about 2 months and let me tell you I am just as scared now as I was for the first. But everything seems to work out. I never thought I was this patient, it is amazing how a child really does affect you. Enjoy the ride…and take lots of pics!

  4. Congrats! (I know that’s a bit early, but it’s exciting news!

    Nice! Congratulations. And you know, pregnancy seems kid of full of strange and creepy terms like ‘yolk sack.’ I think you just have to go with it ;)
