12 weeks down!

We have taken to calling the baby "baby Junior" (no I'm not really naming the kid that!) Here is the newest picture of him/or her. This is from our 12 week visit where they check for neural tube defects and all of that, do lots of blood work, etc. Everything turned out just fine so far! I have had morning sickness all the way up to week 12! So thankful that is over with for the most part!
When I woke up the other morning and tried to put my scrubs on, they wouldn't fit anymore! I tried 3 or 4 shirts on and NONE of them would go over my belly!!! It was like it "popped" over night!! I'm enjoying the belly so far although it does seem to get in the way sometimes! (I know, the best is yet to come! ha ha)

Almost finished with the first one!

I went to the OB dr today for my horrible cold/cough and we were able to pick up the baby's heartbeat with the doppler. It was so exciting! (especially since the dr said the heartbeat usually can't be picked up with doppler until 15-16 weeks) We didn't get to hear the heartbeat on the first ultrasound only see it (I didn't have the best ultrasound tech). I have had a LOT of morning sickness, mid day sickness and night sickness too (ha ha). We're nearing the end of the first trimester so hopefully the sickness will get a little better.
We go back next Friday for 12 week ultrasound, some blood work and all that good stuff! I just can't wait to find out what we're having for sure so I can start buying more things! We already have a baby bed thanks to Granny Tammy (my momma) and the Chicco keyfit travel system we were wanting thanks to Papaw Tony (my daddy). We're just so excited about this baby! Although I've had some unpleasant pregnancy symptoms I'm still trying to enjoy it more than anything! We're so blessed!!!

Oh baby, baby!

I am HORRIBLE at blogging! I keep forgetting to post on here, then my computer messed up...I finally got a new one!
I have new news since the last time I posted on here! We're having a baby!! I am only 10 weeks now...we are soooo excited!! I almost think Jenessa was more excited than us when we first found out! She was jumping up and down wanting to call everyone too! We're so excited about this new adventure in our lives and can't wait to find out what we're having! I am so impatient that we finally tried the wedding band on a thread thing (hey, the little old ladies I know swear by it!) according to the old wives tale, we are having a boy...we don't really care what we're having either as long as it gets here and is healthy but we're still just dying to know one way or the other! Can't wait to start decorating the nursery! We already have a baby bed and have picked a bunch of things out that would go either way but I'm trying not to get ahead of myself...
I have always wanted a baby more than anything and just can't contain my excitement! :) Neither can my parents! They're sooo excited about having a "grandbaby." I will try to keep everyone updated!
