Oh I haven't even started this and I'm tearing up already..dang hormones. I just wanted to put into writing how very blessed I am. I have parents and inlaws that are possibly more excited about this pregnancy than I am (which is hard to beat, I'm ecstatic). My amazing mom (who has been bugging me to make her a grandma since our wedding day) has taken me twice now shopping for baby and maternity clothes. I have a mother-in-law who is taking her daughters and me for a girls weekend to hang out and go shopping. All I ever hear about is baby talk-and you know what-That is GREAT! I'm sure I'll eventually get tired of the baby getting all the attention but not today! My dad, brother, father-in-law and brother-in-law are even getting into this pregnancy asking questions, joking, making plans for when the baby is here. I am so very blessed to be surrounded by such Godly people who bring such joy into my life, and to be married to a selfless man I couldn't deserve in a million years. Thank you Lord.

3 months!!!

Holy crap, I'm already 3 months into this pregnancy! Yesterday was 12 weeks for me, and compared to 40 weeks that doesn't seem like many, but 3 months compared to 9 months..THAT got my attention!

I've been feeling much better here lately, now rarely do I almost throw up/dry heave. It's been a little over 2 weeks since my subchorionic hematoma stopped bleeding and I think DH is more happy about that than I am b/c it means my doctor released me from a 6 week pelvic rest. I'm just glad the 4 weeks of bleeding is over with-yuck.

Yesterday I bought, started, and finished reading "Belly Laughs" by Jenny McCarthy. Pregnant or not, anyone can enjoy this book, it is hilarious, although lude and crude in certain places. Go check it out!

BTW, if I remember later tonight (ha I have preggo brain who I am kidding) then I will post last nights weekly belly shot!

10 weeks

Wow sorry I haven't posted in forever (wait who am I saying sorry to,no one reads this!) Things have been different than I expected with pregnancy. Complicated. BUT..God is good, all the time, and this baby bean is growing strong in me regardless of bleeding, cramping, and so forth. David and I had our 3rd appt on Tuesday. Technically I was 9weeks 6 days pregnant, but the baby measured 9w3d. Not a big deal, no concern from Dr. We heard a strong hearbeat of 173bpm which was very different from 2 weeks before that when the hb was 148bpm. We also saw the baby wiggling around-VERY COOL! So without further is our bean!..oh btw, this awesome picture you see here, is due to a certain ultrasound wand and I becoming VERY familiar with eachother...hopefully next time I go in (13 weeks) I will be far enough along for the on-top-of-the-belly ultrasound!
