How Sweet!

I was not feeling very good earlier this evening. I got dizzy and had a headache so I laid down to rest for a bit. I wasn't feeling up to making dinner so John made (from scratch) pancakes and eggs (my favorite!). He is the sweetest most greatest husband ever! The pancakes and eggs were delicious!

John has been so great during all this. He endures my moods, my cravings, my aches and pains and highs and lows. I am so grateful and appreciative to have him and his support in my life. Thank you, John!

First Ultrasound-1/19/10!!

Today we saw our baby for the first time! It is confirmed that I am currently 12 weeks and the due date is August 7th. Take a look! He/she is soo cool. John and I were so excited. He/she was jumping all around and moving his/her arms and legs. It was amazing.

Above is the baby looking directly at us, you can see the eyes, nose and mouth!

We can't wait to meet him/her. We can't wait to know if it's a him or her!

1/13/10-2nd Prenatal Visit

John and I heard the baby's heart beat for the first time! It was exhilarating and mesmerizing! I didn't listen to the radio on the way home because I did not want to forget the sound. No ultrasound yet....that is scheduled for January 28th. I'm kind of sad that I still don't have an accurate due date and the doctor's office records had not been updated to reflect my being further along as indicated by the blood test. So, I have no idea how far along I am but I'll just be happy that I have my energy back. The doctor's office gave me this diaper bag gift that was stuffed with magazines and other information. After reading through some of the material I am beginning to feel overwhelmed....not that I thought this would be easy! I know time will fly by and I am sooo good at procrastinating I bet I won't go shopping for baby supplies until the week before I'm due.....I hope that doesn't happen. I feel like I haven't asked the doc enough questions....Can you tell I'm freaking out a bit?

My energy is back?

Over the last week I have been feeling pretty good. Reduced feelings of nausea and exhaustion. I don't want to jinx it but I'm glad to feel decent again. One day I even worked out which I have not been able to do for the last 5 weeks. The weather has been warming up a bit and I feel great when I sit outside in the sun. John and I went to Lowe's this weekend and I fell in LOVE with this patio swing glider thing. I tried to play the pregnant card in order to get it but it didn't work :(

This coming week is our 2nd doctor's appointment. I am excited and nervous (I don't like doctor's or doctor's offices very much). Maybe they will give me an actual due date this time!

John took these pictures a few nights ago. I think some of this is from the dinner I just ate. Have a look!

I have been feeling awful for the last few weeks but today I am feeling pretty good. I have had the last week off of work for the holidays and it has been relaxing and wonderful not to feel stressed out and rushed. Today I am working on getting the chores done to get ready to go back to work on Monday :( I actually made my first maternity clothing purchase today (not that I need it yet). Gap was having a crazy sale so I snagged a cute shirt for $10, I really don't think it's fair that pregnant ladies get cuter clothes than everybody else. I think I'll wear it even after I have the baby!

First Blog Ever

So, this is my first personal blog ever. Here are things I hope to accomplish while keeping this blog:
1. Keep friends and family up to date and entertained
2. Record exciting (and not so exciting) events
3. Have fun!

I hope I keep up with it and I hope everyone enjoys it!
(The first few posts here are from my pregnancy blog that I really didn't like because you can't customize it.)

First Doctor Appointment-December 15, 2009

Today John and I went to our first doctor appointment. I didn't know what to expect. They took a gallon of blood from me and I felt really dizzy! The doc talked with us about how to combat the nausea and the importance of eating and drinking. She talked about how I may not feel like eating etc but I feel like I am the opposite. Sure I feel sick sometimes but when I don't, I feel like I can't get enough food yet she said I should not be eating more than normal! I have been feeling really tired lately and I cut out caffeine...The next appointment is in mid January. She said that we won't get an ultrasound until 20 weeks or more.....I felt sad to hear that we would have to wait that long. I left feeling slightly unsatisfied but tried to understand that every doctor's office is different.

On December 5, 2009 We Found Out ......

We are pregnant! What a rush. I awoke this morning ready to test (I'm around 8 days late). I took the test and nearly immediately it reported the positive results. I had actually planned to bring it out of the bathroom so John and I could wait for the result together (it says it takes 3 minutes!). I came out of the bathroom and didn't know what to do so I hand it John (sorry John) and he sees the result and turns white and I thought it might faint. We just stood there for awhile smiling at eachother. It was sort of this surreal thing. I felt really nervous and shaky and then happy and then crying! It felt like a dream. WOW!

The entire day today felt surreal. John told his family and I surprised my mom later in the day with a bib that had "I love grandma" on it. We bought a book for me and a book for John on tips for the expectant Dad. So many emotions and thoughts running through my head is making it hard to finish my homework. What a day!
