  2. Just found your blog :) So excited for you guys. Saw you from a distance at church last week but sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you!
    A couple other pregnancy websites that I really liked are whattoexpect.com (you can sign up for daily email updates) and babycenter.com (weekly updates)--that one was my favorite, and they also send you emails after the baby is born about their development and milestones and lots of helpful info :)
