I'm at 11 weeks today and still feeling great! I had a doctors appt on Monday and got to hear the baby's heartbeat. It is so exciting to know something is in there growing! It's starting to look more and more like a person each week!

I'm Pregnant!!!

I am 9 weeks and 3 days today, and due sometime around December 12th. It took us awhile to figure out the best way to tell our parents but since Mother's Day was coming up we decided to hopefully keep a secret and do it then. For those of you who wanted to know how we broke the exciting news here's what we did! We wrapped a picture frame with a poem that said...

Although I am very, very small
I asked my mom and dad to call
On this wonderful Mother's Day
To share the news that I'm on the way

This frame is my gift to you
To hold my photo when I'm brand new
I'll surely see you on Christmas Day
But until then, I'll just say...

Happy Mother's Day, Grandma!

Everything worked out just perfectly! No one was expecting it and of course that made it alot more fun! It was so awesome and exciting for everyone!! I was pretty nervous mainly because I have not been sick at all so it doesn't seem quite real yet but I'm not going to complain everything seems to be going very well. I had my first doctors appt last Thurs. It was 45 minutes long and all they did is a bunch of tests and paper work! So as weird as it sounds I am really looking forward to my next appt on the 28th. Even though it's the more icky physical part, I'll be pretty close to the 2nd trimester which is so exciting!!!
