10 weeks

Well, we have officially made it to 10 weeks! I am definitely ready to start feeling better and it just hasn't happened yet. I'll have a few days of feeling pretty good and then- BAM!- back to feeling icky. I am not complaining since it's a good sign, I am just ready for food to sound good again!

The doppler is being broken in nicely, hehehe! Last night this little one was playing hide and seek which I did not find all! Heartbeat is still ranging between 170-175 which is nice and strong.

I am ready for second trimester to get here...just a few short weeks away!!!

Doppler & Heartbeat!!!

So, the Doppler arrived today!!! Lane gave me the pep talk on remembering that it's still early and not to panic if we don't hear anything. I thought to myself, maybe we should wait, but that thought lasted about .5 seconds! How on earth could I not try immediately? HELLO! Hehehe! Anyways, we busted the Doppler out and....WE IMMEDIATELY HEARD A GOOD, STRONG HEARTBEAT!!! WOHOOOO! Our little one's hear rate ranged between 170-175! Music to our ears!

We will record it the next time we check and see if we can post it here. Holy toledo, we are even more excited!!! At 9 weeks 4 days we got to hear our baby's heart beating away! Yahooo!!!

9 weeks today

We have made it to the 9 week mark! Only a few more weeks to go and we will be in our second trimester! Exciting! You know us...well know me....the doppler has been ordered. It's due to arrive next week so you know there will be a post as soon as it gets here. My mom clearly remembers the doppler with Hunter so it's highly likely we'll have some good stories this time around too!

For some reason, the barfy feeling seems to be getting worse, not better. No complaints about that, every little symptom is a great sign!! Its hard to love food one day and totally dislike it the next!

We continue to pray everyday that this little one is healthy and that this pregnancy is blessed.

First appointment!

First appointment, August 11th, 2008 at 4:10 p.m..............................................

We have a heartbeat! Wooohoooo!! Our wee one was measuring right on at 8 weeks and 3 days and that little heart was pumping away. What an amazing little miracle! We have a due date of
March 20, 2009.

Next appointment is September 17th at 9:00 a.m. The big ultrasound will be at the end of October. We have a feeling that time is really going to fly this time. Everything is becoming so much more real! Hunter is going to be a big brother! Yippeee!!

Please continue to pray for this little one. We are not out of the woods yet, but doc says this baby is coming home!
