Baby Stinson is on its way!


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!

YAY!!! I am sooo excited!!! My doc said that my due date is Nov 17 or 18, so we have basically the same due date. How wierd is that??? Are you naming the baby Parker? That was one of my options when I was pregnant with EK. Glad you are feeling good. I have been pretty tired and a little nauseous, but it usually ends by around 9 weeks.
