11 week sonogram

We had our 11 week sonogram on 6/30/2010. Patrick and I had so much fun watching the baby on the monitor. We thought it still looked like an alien but it finally had arms and legs. We could see the baby moving his/hers arms around and could even see the fingers. It was also neat to be able to see the eyes so clearly. The baby had a great heart beat and it was a out of body experience to be able to hear the heartbeat together for the first time. Our next sonogram will be at 18 weeks and we should be able to find out the sex at that sonogram. We are anxiously waiting!!

Sonograms are so much fun!

We had our first sonogram at 5 weeks. There is not much to look at but if you look closely you can see the tiny dot, that is the baby. We were excited to find out that everything looked normal and my blood work came back great!

Our next sonogram was at 8 weeks. The baby kind of looks like an alien but it has a head and body, small arms, and will soon become a fetus. Patrick unfortunately was late for this appointment and then didn't know where I was or how to find me. He missed the sonogram so I had to hear the heartbeat alone. It was an outrageous feeling to know that something inside me had it's own heartbeat.

We're having a baby!

On May 11, 2010 I found out I was pregnant. I devised a plan on how to tell Patrick the good news. I bought him Twizzlers and Sunny D and left them on the counter with a note. Of course he didn't get it. He didn't even eat any of the snacks. I had a feeling that my plan would backfire so I had a backup plan. Before we went to dinner that night I gave him a gift. He opened it and it was two positive pregnancy tests and a card. He was very excited to find out that he was going to be a dad! The next day he bought me beautiful flowers!!! I'm such a lucky girl!
