15 Weeks and Counting!

Everything is going pretty well. I managed to skate through with no morning sickness! In 5 weeks I will have another ultrasound and find out if this is a boy or a girl. This has been the most burning question for me, so these next five weeks are going to drag by!

We Have A Heartbeat!

Today I had my first doctor appointment. I was looking forward to hearing hte heartbeat, but my doctor told me not ot get my hopes up, it is still early and she was doubtful we would hear it. She did not want me to panic and think something was wrong, but said we could try anyway. I said I definitely wanted to try and sure enough, there was a little "whoosh, whoosh, whoosh"! She said she could clearly tell it was the baby's because mine was around 77 and the baby's was around 170!

My mom said that must mean it's a girl. My appetite lately makes me think it must be a boy!

Ultrasound is on December 31st. What a way to close the year!

To Tell Or Not To Tell?

I thought I was going to shout it from the rooftops when I first found out I was pregnant. I thought for sure I'd have trouble keeping this secret. Oddly enough, as we approach the time to start telling everyone, I'm having reservations about it. I kind of like having this special little secret. I will be telling people, and it will be exciting, and it will have a new kind of excitement all its' own, but it will be different.

Announcing an Expectation!

Well, I never would have guessed I'd be ready for this step in my life but I've been thinking about it more and more often. Finally my husband said he had been thinking about it and here we are, 7 weeks into our new journey!

This is such a crazy feeling to know that from here on out your life will never be the same. Okay, so that is kind of scary, too! It's not horrible scary, just sobering scary. I've never really been a carefree, responsibility-be-damned sort of girl, so this will responsibility will not be completely life altering, but the thought of another living being relying on you 100% for everything is kind of weird. Talk about growing up in a hurry. I really don't know how younger women, or even younger girls, do this. I am 31 and I just barely think I'm ready for this!

We are very excited, despite the nerves. My husband just seemed to realize that this was all real last week and now is all into shopping and getting the room ready. Now that he is ready, he is ready now! He will have a hard time adjusting to another 7+ months to wait!

We did get some of the room prepared, as in all of my things have been moved out of it! The room that will ultimately be the baby's was my art room. I had a LOT of stuff in there. It is so strange to see it empty and now I can not do anything more with it for at least three months because everything will be dependent on boy vs. girl! Oh well, at least this way I had control over where all of my things were organized.
