Belly, belly and more belly!

Since I have nothing to report (other than some severe "morning" sickness over the past few days), I thought I would delight with some bare belly pictures. Enjoy the diversity of my loungewear. :-)

6 weeks (Still had a waist. It was fun.)

8 weeks (First sign of belly. Unfortunately, it's pregnancy bloat and not baby.)

10 weeks (Bloat goes bye-bye...soon to make an appearance, baby!)

12 weeks (Bring on the baby! I can finally tell a difference. My clothes do not fit!)

Thump, thump, thump!

Today was our 11 1/2 week doctor visit and I'm happy to report that things seem to be going perfectly so far!

We finally got to hear the baby's heartbeat on a doppler which was incredibly cool. And fast too...176 bpm. I think our Fig is running laps or maybe doing some kickboxing (not that I can feel it yet). The uterus is moving up too, which equals baby bump should be making an appearance shortly. I'm ready to look pregnant instead of lumpy, which is what I'm currently sporting.

We go back in another month and then we'll be scheduling our big ultrasound which will hopefully determine whether we are going to be in the pink or blue. Ahhh, the anticipation is killing me.

I don't have any pictures for this post. Just a happy mommy to be that is glad there will be no peeing in a cup for at least another month. Doing that on cue is a little tricky sometimes...

A bean no more...

Our little one is already growing up so much! What once was a bean is now a....FIG! Okay, so I have to admit that I've never even seen a fig before. I had to Google to see what it even looked like. It would be more specific to say that our little one is now around 2 inches long and weighes about 1/4 ounce. Also, he or she is no longer an embryo. Instead, our fig is officially a 

They grow up so fast....

Here's a pile of figs, in case you're unaware of their size.

Baby's First Picture

I thought I should add our little bean's first picture. Here he/she is at 7 weeks, 4 days. This was our first doctor's appointment and our first chance to see the little heart just chugging away. Amazing!

And bean makes three!!!

Wow! So....just to make it official, I'm pregnant! If you talk to me on any kind of regular basis, this is probably news you've already heard. (Especially since I'll tell anyone who will listen!) 

Kevin and I are freaking out with excitement over this news and can't believe it happened so quickly! It was planned, but we thought it might take a few months--guess we were wrong.

As of yesterday, I'm 10 weeks along on a 40-week journey. We got our BFP (big fat positive) at 5 weeks, which I guess means I've been officially pregnant for only 5 short weeks. I have to say it feels like it's been much much longer.

Pregnancy so far has been a roller coaster ride of emotions, cravings and lots 
of nausea. I thought Iwas going to be one of the lucky ones who didn't experience 
morning sickness. Unfortunately, that was not the case! It's been full force and pretty
constant. I know it's worth it for the end result though, so that (and my saltines) 
keep me going. 

Anyone that knows me knows I couldn't go through something like this without 
making a spot on the internet for it, so this blog is that. Check back often for insane 
mother-to-be ramblings that I'm sure will pop up on an almost daily basis. And if you're on this blog, you can also prepare yourself for lots of fun TMI 
pictures of my ever-expanding baby bump.  Consider yourself warned!

(By the way, the pic above is how we told our parents and family that a baby was on the way. We included this picture of our positive HPT and watched them try to figure out the news. So fun...)
