8 Weeks!

Chris and I went for our first ultrasound today. I think the hardest part was consuming 32 oz of water in an hour and not being able to pee, but it was definitely worth it. As you can see, he or she is but a little tiny blob amidst a sea of...whatever is in there. In the middle of that little blob, we could see a tiny little heartbeat. It was incredible to see, and we both keep looking at this photo on our fridge and thinking about what a miracle life is...that God has this little one's life in His hands already. Wow.

New Year, New Beginnings!

I think it's safe to say that 2009 will be the most life-changing and busiest year of our lives as of yet. Over the Christmas holidays two sets of people extremely close to us got engaged and we are in both wedding parties. And, on January 1st we learned that we are going to be parents. That sounds so strange to say - PARENTS. Yikes! On New Years Day morning, I got up before Chris was awake and peed on the stick. I honestly had my doubts, because I didn't feel super different, but there was just something that made me think to take it. So, I while I was waiting I washed my face, brushed my teeth, and took a peek. There it was - that extra little line, indicating that that were was indeed life inside me. Even when I saw that it didn't seem real...I didn't feel sick or anything! Two days later we went to the doctor (the fourth walk in clinic that day that wasn't closed, full, or had a two hour wait) and he confirmed it with another test, and for some reason it seemed more real. It has now been almost a week since we've known about this and now I'm feeling a bit of the nausea and I feel like I'm always hungry. I know I'm in for a lot more!
