12 Weeks


Yesterday, we went to the doctor to hear baby's heartbeat. So he starts looking for it, and we just can't find it. Kind of freaky...but I guess I'm pretty early on to always hear the heartbeat. So my doctor says, "We have a rule that you don't leave without hearing the heartbeat!" I like this rule :) So we went and did an ultrasound and low and behold, baby is just fine but moving around like nuts and that's why we couldn't hear the heartbeat! "It" would just fling "itself" and throw "it's" head backwards. Here is a crappy video, but you can see "it" fling "it's" head back!

We are so stoked and I can't wait to FEEL those kicks!

Little T-Rex


Say hello to our little T-rex :) It was so cool to see the baby today at 9 weeks. I won't lie, I was an emotional roller coaster. I just wanted to see SOMETHING in there. To hear and to see was the best ever. I go in again in two weeks, just to hear the baby and reassure myself! My doctor is awesome :) He asked when I wanted to come in next and I asked him what was normal. He said about 4 weeks which would put me at about 13 weeks. But he was like, "let's have you come in in two weeks just to calm your nerves and we will see and hear the baby again."
PHEW!
It was so cool to see the baby kicking it's legs and it's little "T-rex" arms. Reminds me of this-
Our little big headed baby with little arms. 
And the heartbeat was just fluttering. I was just boobing, it was amazing. I can't believe it still.
So I am 9 weeks on the dot and baby is expected to arrive around February 13, 2013. Valentines baby maybe? Or on Daddy's birthday (Feb. 17)
We are so happy and excited!

6 Weeks

I've decided that I need to be documenting such fun times in our lives and I will publish these later. I just don't want to forget. Just hoping it's not jinxing me!

Monday, June 18, 2012- 6 weeks, 3 days pregnant

This time was not much of a surprise. I was cramping slightly and I just knew it. So randy drove me to Walgreens at 9 pm to get a test and I just couldn't wait until morning. I didn't have to pee, but I tried anyways. The test was fast and was positive! I was excited, but the next few weeks were an emotional roller coaster. I couldn't believe it but I was so scared and just paranoid. We went to the temple and I've been better since. I swear they thought I was crazy, sobbing in there, but it was just what I needed. We decided in the beginning to put it into the hands of the Lord and so we are just taking one day at a time. I cramp a little everyday, but I'm thinking that it is due to gas and bloating. 4 weeks was great....5 weeks was great. BOOM 6 weeks....morning sickness like mad. And I'm so grateful for it....bring it on!! I'm hoping that being sick this time is a good sign! As soon as I found out, my doctor put me on a baby aspirin to help prevent clotting and progesterone to help with development. Here's hoping it works out! I'm so excited/scared/overwhelmed/and overjoyed! So blessed!
