Pregnant...



Well a lot has happened since I last wrote. Jonny and I were surprised the day after Christmas with the news I was pregnant. I woke up Christmas night starving, I mean like I hadn't eaten in weeks. I woke up the next day and said something just isn't right. Anyway we got the pink line. No this wasn't planned although we had talked about maybe starting a family in the next year or two. Well I guess God had different plans. I am due at the end of August with a little boy.

We are getting excited but let me tell you it took us a few months to get here. We really have an amazingly fun life. Between travel, work and our crazy social life figuring out how a baby was going to fit in hard. But I say God gives you 9 months to get ready for the changes. We are now getting very excited and look forward to meeting our son.

I however am not one who likes being pregnant. The first trimester I was soooooo sick. I mean I didn't get out of bed for 6 weeks. It was really crazy. I finally started to feel better but as an athlete it is so hard not being able to do the things you have always done. I am not just talking about the no drinking (although that sucks too) but I can't work at all or do sports to the level I was.

I am 6 months pregnant and still exercising but am really surprised how everyday that gets harder. Everyday baby boys is more active and everyday I get more winded doing normal activities. The crazy thing is I know it is going to get worse before it gets better.

For the next few months I will be sharing my pregnant thoughts on my blog since, well I am not working.

As for work, I was in the movie Priest that came out this last weekend and both Jonny and I worked on Fast 5 that came out two weeks ago. I also worked on Pirates 4 that comes out this week. I was one of the mermaids. Jonny is super busy with Wipeout which is just about finished filming for the season. He has also been super busy working on producing a few other shows with some of the Wipeout people as well as some other friends. It is looking very promising for him. It is weird that neither of us are really doing stunt right now. I know we both miss stunts but right now it just isn't in our cards.

You and Jon are blessed Heather. Colin, our oldest, came by surprise when we were thinking whether with our life style we'd ever have kids. 5 kids and 25 years later, it's been a gift. Kids will make your life more rewarding in more ways than one.
