WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!
We have successfully entered Week 13, leaving the first trimester behind! Our baby is due on February 2, 2011, and we are VERY excited! I have been fortunate in not being very sick, however I have spent the past 3 months sleeping about 12 hours per day!
Changes since I've been pregnant:
- My sense of smell is impeccable!
- The smell of clean laundry makes me sick
- I can eat a LOT
- Corndogs and pickles are my new favorite (unhealthy) snack
- I never knew I would need so many bathroom breaks
Most of all, I'm just ecstatic about having a baby and we are so excited about becoming parents!
Quick story... During our last appointment, we were looking forward to hearing the baby's heartbeat; after the doctor tried to hear the heartbeat for 5 minutes with no result, he brought in an ultra-sound machine. I was in a bit of a panic, but the doctor soon calmed my fears and Jared and I were able to see the baby move! The doc said that everything looks great and the baby looks healthy, and we are so thankful to be expecting!
