12 Weeks...

Yep, 12 weeks! It seems like it is going pretty fast, but I am sure as I get bigger and it gets hotter, I will not feel that way for much longer. Things are going great and we had another Dr. appt. yesterday. We got to hear the heartbeat again and it was 166 bpm!

I have been feeling pretty good these days. I would say weeks 8-11 were my hardest, but compared to some girls, I think am pretty lucky. I dealt with some "evening" nausea and occasional sickness, and of course exhaustion, but I would say my worst symptom has been a few migranes. I had one a week for about 3 weeks straight. Not fun, but hopefully those are behind me.

Hearing the heartbeat yesterday made it even more real and made Bobby and I excited all over again!! In 6 months we will have a little baby in our house...CRAZY!

What else...oh my clothes are not fitting anymore, but I am not big enough to fit in most maternity. So, this makes the bella band my bff. Umm, I still feel tired a lot at the end of the day, and I am still always hungry! :) -- I think Bobby is tired of hearing the phrases, "I need to go the bathroom (again)" and "I am hungry". His responses are either "What's new!" or "ALREADY?!" HA!

Our next appt. will be at the end of June and then we find out the gender in July -- YAY! I am very excited about the next few months ahead!! Stay tuned...

Drum Roll please...

Bobby and I are so HAPPY to announce that we are EXPECTING a BABY in early DECEMBER!! I am 8 weeks and feeling pretty good. I have had some nausea and fatigue, oh and I am ALWAYS hungry, but I am feeling good for the most part. '

We found out we were pregnant on April 2nd and after 4 pregnancy tests and a confirmation from the Dr., Bobby finally started to believe it. :)

Today we had our ultrasound and got to see and HEAR the heartbeat. It was amazing and so cute to see Bobby's reaction to it. I think his exact words were "oh WOW!!". So needless to say we are thrilled and excited about our journey toward parenthood.

(Oh and for those that are wondering -- we sat Polo down and told her about her new "sibling". She barked about it a little, but I think she will be ok) ;)
