It's finally happened! We're having a baby! I'm due around November 17 so that makes me right at 8 weeks preggo! We are both very excited--today's doctor's appointment made it seem much more real.
I went in for my first checkup and they did a regular ultrasound and an internal ultrasound, which allowed us to really see the baby and the heart beating! It was amazing! She said it was a good, strong heartbeat which is all we wanted to hear. Then she turned on the volume and we could hear it. I was very relieved. Sometimes I feel like it's too good to be true. I have been feeling things all along, since about 4 weeks. It' felt like a very mild cramping. They explained that it's my uterus growing.
Anyway, I found out right at around 3 1/2 weeks (on Wednesday). I just had a weird feeling and had had an upset stomach for three days. So I went to CVS and bought Pepto, pregnancy test, and acid reflux medicine! I took the pregnancy test first just on a hunch, and immediately a positive result showed! I was so happy! When Troy got home, I gave him a little present--my baby shoes from when I was (duh) a baby. He teared up and hugged me!
Then mom & Rodney and Mrs. Janice came up that Sunday and went to church with us. Right before lunch, I gave mama the same present and it took her a while to get it. But then she squealed and did a little jump! I know she is so excited. It will be her first grandbaby.
So far, I've had no morning sickness! Just feeling tired...but I have been going, going, going. Cheer practice, Ritz practice, and just standing on my feet all day. But I don't mind! I told Troy that the pampering needs to start now--foot massages, playing with my hair, letting me nap without seeming lazy...
Lots of folks are pregnant with me! Little Parker will have so many sweet friends to play with! I like to make lists of everyone I know who's preggo, but I won't list it here. Now it's time for bed.
Goodnight little Jellybean! We love you and are praying for you!
