Can this be?

We went for our ultrasound on Thursday and got to see the little peanut...tadpole and all. The baby's heartrate was in the 170's and we got to see it beating. It's SO cool to know a tiny living person is inside growing and moving and getting bigger to enter the world. It'll be really awesome when I can feel the baby move and of course know what it is. My curiosity is out of control. But for now...I'm enjoying one day at a time because I know it will go fast. Although it sure would be nice for these next 2 or 3 weeks to hurry along and carry the nausea with it.

It's been a month of great surprises. We got great news  around Valentine's day that we're pregnant!! I can't tell you how excited and nervous I am all at the same time. I'm 9 weeks so that puts me due October 20th. Just in time for the holidays! It's still early so keep us in your prayers. I have my ultrasound tomorrow and we can't wait to see the little peanut even though he/she is only the size of a grape. I've been feeling nauseous a lot, but once I eat it goes away for a few hours. It will be nice when I'm feeling a little better. And smells are TERRIBLE! Pretty much everything that smells weird makes me gag and nauseous. I sure hope THAT goes away. Eeek! Plus...last week I had 7 days off from work with plans to clean house and  organize drawers and cabinets, but exhaustion hit me and I laid on the couch for 7 days!! Can't wait to share more as the weeks pass along. Please pray the baby is healthy and God continues to grow and build this beautiful gift He gave us.
