Jelly Bean

That is right Brett and I are having a Jelly Bean. Today was my Dr's appointment. It was about 3 hours long, ahhh. But well worth it since we got to see our baby for the first time. It looks like a Jelly Bean with a flicker light. We knew right away that the flicker was our babies heart beat. That about CRAZY. They said everything looks really good. The heart rate was really strong 146 bpm which they said was very healthy. She even game me something to help with the nausea YAY. I might make it through this first trimester after all. Anyways I just thought I would share my wonderful experience with you all. Our due date is July 9th, oh so far away.

7 weeks

Well today I am 7 weeks pregnant. You can tell its my first I don't shut up about it haha. But I love Wednesdays cause its when I hit a new week. So I get to look up everything about that week of pregnancy. Most of the time I end up peaking at the next week too. Its crazy to think my baby already has a strong heart, kidneys, brain like all the major stuff. But what got me is that it said the baby is already swimming around. If it takes after his Dad, he is going to be a great swimmer, if after his Mom, not so great haha.

That reminds me of something on Brett and I's honeymoon. Brett was saying I needed to relax more and just be spontaneous. Well we rented a boat and took it out in a inlet of the ocean. Let me just say an inlet of the ocean isn't anything like lake. Which I know now. Well we put down anchor and decided to fish, well I decided to try this spontaneous thing and I jumped in to swim. I guess you have to watch when you can be spontaneous. The tide was really strong and pulled me out into where the boats were and further and further away from where Brett and the boat was. So he had to pull in anchor and drive over to get me. Yeah wasn't one of the highlights of our honeymoon but sure makes me laugh now.

Now that I got that side note/story out of the way, I really hope this baby swims like his Daddy. Oh and stops making Mommy so sick.

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great thanksgiving. I think its obvious what I am thankful for. My husband and my new Baby to be. Oh yeah and my family and friends. That we always seem to find enough to get by. For my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and the Holly Ghost. That is just a start, there is a whole lot more.

The Uninvited Guest

So I feel like morning sickness is like the guest that you really didn't want to invite but tag along when one of your friends. That jumps in right when you start to have fun and reminds you just how annoying they are. Making all your favorite party foods just not enjoyable, and all you favorite games just unbearable. You know when you invited your friend there was this chance that they may bring it along with them, but you hope that they don't. I invited a baby into our life, I knew that it may bring along morning sickness, but man does it suck. Last night we had Brett's sister and a guy over to play games and right when I was in the middle of enjoying everything here comes the annoying guess to make sure I can't. I guess I am just happy to know that it will eventually leave. I also know that in the end it will be well worth it.

I am so excited to be a Mom. I have been waiting for this most of my adult life. I think its still hard to belive it is actually happening. I am sure Brett gets sick of it, but I am always saying " were going to have a baby", or "Is it weird to think you are going to be a Dad" he always says no its not. But the other day I asked is it weird to think in 8 months you will have a Son or Daughter. I think that hit home to him. Not just that we are going to have a baby, but that it will be his baby. Since then he seems a lot more worried about how I am doing and feeling. I can't think of a better man for the job of a father though. But I guess that's why I married him. I figure if he can put up with me, he can take anything a kid is going to dish out.

Taking a Chance

One year ago today, little did I know how much my life was about to change. The day started with school just like any other day. But after school is when all the phone calls began. My Mom and Sisters like clock work took turns calling me all day. That along with my friends. Everyone excited and nervous for me, but none as excited or nervous as me. Looking back I think if I had known how much my life was about to change I would have been even more excited, well and nervous. Finally after a day of anticipation, around 7:30pm I got a long awaited knock at the door. I opened the door and there he is, with flowers and a huge smile my future husband. I am so very very grateful that he had enough faith in us, that he packed up his car and drove 3 days across the country to give us a chance. I know that my life wouldn't be as blessed today with out him in it. I love you Brett!!!

I am addicted to taking pregnancy test. The dollar store has them for, that's right a dollar. I keep taking them to see if the line gets darker or shows up faster. I don't know if this is because its fun to actually see it show up, and I get that excitement all over again. Or if its because I am paranoid that my hormones aren't doubling. If the line gets darker then it means they are. Either way they are showing up faster and getting darker. So looks like all is OK. Guess I just need to learn that patience and just wait until Nov 26Th for my Ultra Sound.
