It’s official! We are pregnant! Baby Bohle will be arriving this Christmas. It was about 3 months ago when we found out and have been anxious to share our news with everyone! Right now, I am 14 weeks along and doing well! As we have told family and friends our big news, we have found that there are several of the same questions asked each time. I figured we would do a FAQ with the Bohle’s, because I know you all are thinking and wondering the same things. Here we go:
Q. How are you [Amanda] feeling?
A. Great! I haven’t been sick once. Nor have I experienced that dreaded word that every pregnant women fears–nausea. Praise the Lord! I haven been pretty tired. There were some days at the end of the school year where it took every once of being in me to walk out to the car and drive myself home. One afternoon about 3 weeks ago, I think I took 3 naps. My newest pregnancy symptom? Hunger! Oh my lands am I hungry! I feel like I could eat a cow at least three times a day.
Q. Was this a surprise or was it planned?
A. A little of both. We had talked about how right now wouldn’t be the best time to start having kids considering we are moving and starting a new life in Holland. Well–that’s when we found out we were expecting. Go figure–God’s plan is always greater than ours.
Q. Is your due date really Christmas?
A. Yes. We’ve been given several different dates and Christmas was one of them. For now, until we are told otherwise, we are planning on a Christmas baby. Do the doctors really know though? It all seems like a suggestion anyways.
Q. Will you [Amanda] look for a teaching job?
A.Yes! Well–actually I’ve already found one. Last week I accepted a part-time preschool position at Holland Christian Schools. It is three mornings, 10 hours a week. It couldn’t be more perfect to allow me to be mommy and teacher at the same time. My mom would be proud–teaching preschool after all! God’s hand could not be more evident in this transition to life in Holland and life as parents.
Keep an eye out for continued updates on this journey! We are pretty excited!
There you have it folks. Chris and I are celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary this week by watching our home be packed into the back of a semi-truck! Now we are trying to settle into life in Holland!
