i got so many wonderful gifts! i got almost everything i was hoping for this year! including one HUGE gift that i have been hoping to get for a long time....
yes you guessed it.
here is our tiny little baby!!!!!! : )
we found out december 17th that God was giving us the gift we had been praying for : ).
basically i felt very moody and i cried about every 17 seconds. i thought this was odd. i had taken many pregnancy tests hoping for a good result and seeing a big ugly "not pregnant" in the little window, so i was kinda nervous to take another one. but i figured that it's not about me, if there's a little baby in there i need to know. so i put my fear of disappointment aside and took the test.
phil walked in right after i set it down out the counter. i said something to him then we looked down and it was already positive!!!
i think i said something like, "oh my gosh! OH MY GOSH!" then i said, "sooo.. are you sure you want a baby??" then we laughed and cried and hugged and stood there kind of in shock. it's so unreal when that test reads positive!
this is us so happy but completely in shock. haha i think we're displaying that pretty well here.
i took another one the next morning to be sure
yesterday was the first doctor's appointment.. i am 8 1/2 weeks along and as far as they can tell, i'm due august 23rd. we're so excited!!! the doctors said that everything looks perfect so i figured it was safe to share with the world now : ). i know a lot of people wait until the second trimester to tell everyone and i probably would too, but after seeing my little baby yesterday... well i couldn't keep it in anymore!!! there's nothing in the world like seeing your little baby's heart beating. it's seriously a miracle : ).
in case you're wondering i am feeling pretty good. i am extremely lucky i realize to only have mild nausea. i am tired a lot and i cry about 700 times a day (happy and sad tears) but i just thank God i'm not super sick. and i'm pretty sure any sickness i feel is now ignored as i look at my little baby's first picture : ). i just love our tiny little baby! i realize it looks like a nothing blob to most, but to me it's the cutest little fetus i ever did see. i can't wait until the day i get to meet our little guy or gal. SO EXCITED!!!
