Aaron and I had our first "baby" doctor appointment on Thursday. I was nervous as ever, but everything went great! We actually saw the little baby - which looked like a peanut AND heard the heartbeat! That really sealed the deal! When we saw the baby on the monitor, I was a little in shock - but then when the nurse said to be real quiet and we would listen for the heartbeat...just one second later we heard it just as clear as ever. It was beating so fast - and strong. Tears were pouring down my face - it was unexplainable! What a miracle. Here's our first picture this is at 6 weeks and 3 days.We are due August 10th, 2009 - only 8 months away! Our next appt. will be January 15th - that's when they will get all my bloodwork, and do another ultrasound. Everyone has been saying that I will ba amazed at how much changes by then. I can't wait!
I have been feeling great - a few little tired spells - but no sickness at all! yippee! My grandmother told me that if I wasn't sick then I should just go ahead and have a dozen...FUNNY!
Tuesday night we will pack-up Aaron's car to spend 5 days in GA. It should be interesting - fitting 170 pounds of dogs, all their food, 2 people, all out junk for 5 days - and Christmas presents for each other and 3 families into his 1997 camry - which i fondly refer to as the Dad car. I am pretty sure that the picture of us pulling out of the driveway will slightly resemble a scene from the Griswold's Christmas Vacation!
So till next time - hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!
