Parents to be!

I know it has been a long while since my last post, but I have a really good excuse. We're pregnant! It is so exciting! I know that doesn't sound like a good excuse for not posting, but there's more. You know how the princess (Kate Middleton) has had extreme morning sickness and had to be hospitalized for it? Well, I had that too, only I wasn't hospitalized. It was really bad. I couldn't keep any kinds of food down no matter what I did. That was the first trimester, and now I'm well into the second trimester! 16 weeks today! Woohoo!

We had our first appointment today! We had a little problem with insurance, so that's why we didn't go to a doctor sooner. It was a little nerve racking at first, since I've never been to THAT kind of doctor, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. Granted, I only had an abdominal ultrasound and some blood drawn, but the "fun" stuff is to come in 2 weeks. Yay.

So we got to see our little munchkin moving around! It was such a great experience!! Between weeks 16 and 22 weeks, you can feel the baby "moving". It has been described as feeling butterflies in your stomach, I still haven't had the opportunity to feel it yet, but during the ultrasound I could see our little baby moving around! It looked like it was doing sit ups! It was super cute!

I apologize if the quality of the picture isn't the best, I took the picture with my camera. We have an idea of what the gender might be, but we're going to wait a few weeks to finalize it. We're trying to figure out a clever way to tell the public as well. I have an idea, but we're still going to wait. I have another appointment in 2 weeks and we'll post more baby updates then. We are so excited for this opportunity to be parents!
