In case you hadn't heard....

We're having a baby;) Most of you probably know since we told everyone ages ago... but... tadahhh! I've been supersick and haven't wanted to put clothes on let alone update the bloggityblog... so... better late than never! I'm too lazy to take a pic of the real one. We got the 1st ultrasounds... but it was just a tadpole then... and my stupid expensive heavyduty printer decided to stop scanning... grrr.) So i can't justscan that either... So use your imagination... hopefully i'll have it figured out by the next ultrasound!

The first appointment was interesting to say the least... but oh well! The doctor decided to spend forever trying to figure out if there we're two babies in there... he finally decided there wasn't... but we did get to see it and hear the heartbeat really early... so I can't complain!

We went to the doctor again today... supposedly we are around 13 weeks... we got to hear the heartbeat again! SOOO much fun... and reassuring. I've realized that i'm very impatient about this stuff. I want to be able to see the baby when ever I want.. and hear it whenever I want... but the doctors won't oblige. jerks. Hearing the heartbeat is just fantastic though... It beats so fast! I swear the kid is running laps in there!

To any husbands or future dads out there... be nice to your wives if they get the morning aka "all-day sickness". It can be a real beast. They aren't making it up. I can attest to that. I know it's totally worth it... but man it drags ALOT out of you during those first few weeks.

Anywa ys... I'm wishing for my tastebuds to return to me... everything tastes different, I always have a nasty taste lingering in my throat that makes me want to hurl... My body is warping in all different ways... I feel like I need a makeover... and yet I wouldn't give it up for anything... ;) So hopefully everything goes well... and in December we'll have a cute little kid poppin out!

Yea!!! Congrats Steph! I am so happy for ya! Having your first is so much fun, except the morning sickness of course. But do you remember what the heartbeat was? They say you can tell the sex of the baby from the number of heartbeats it has. So comment on my blog and tell me what it was! Keep your blog updated!

Thanks ya'll:) We're excited... Kaiser is lame and won't let me have another ultrasound till like... 24wks... the only other one we had was from 7-8 wks and it was just like this tiny little tadpole... So I might cheat and go get one done somewhere earlier... They didn't tell me the HB rate... Just that they heard it... i'll try askin next time;)
