It's a...BOY!!

Last night at our 14 week 4d ultrasound, we found out we are expecting a little baby boy! The ultrasound tech said she had 13 people before me that day, and they were ALL having girls, so I'm pretty confident that she knew when she saw his boy parts. It was amazing to have our whole family there with us to share the experience. I can't wait to go back when I'm further along to see better images of his face!

At Last

After a short hiatus, a nervous breakdown, and a vacation, we tried two more cycles of injectables, and WE GOT PREGNANT!

I am about 7-8 weeks, due on October 14, 2011. My first appointment was at 6 weeks, and we saw the heartbeat. Second appointment was just on Wednesday, got to see the heartbeat again, and the baby is a lot bigger than just a week ago! I was released to regular OB, and my next appointment will be on 3/14.

I still can't believe this is happening. I feel like I should pinch myself; it's so amazing! I keep fearing the worst, though. Everytime I go in, I'm afraid they won't find a heartbeat, and everytime I use the restroom, I expect to find spotting. All we got for so long was disappointment, and now that we have something to be excited about, it's hard to let it sink in.

So far I feel pretty good, just some nausea and vomiting, which I will gladly take for 9 straight months as long as my little peanut is growing healthy and strong!

Jesus Saves by Jeremy Camp

Hope is here, shout the news to everyone
It's a new day, peace has come, Jesus saves
Mercy triumphs at the cross
Love is come to rescue us, Jesus saves

Hope is here, what a joyful noise we'll make
As we join with heaven's song
To let all the world know that Jesus saves
Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves

Free at last, every debt has been repaid
Broken hearts can be remade, Jesus saves
Sing above the storms of life, sing through the darkest night
Jesus saves
