First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage . . .

Then comes a baby in a baby carriage.
I couldn't be happier to announce that M and I are expecting our first child!! I am currently 13 weeks pregnant with a due date of May 11. So far everything has been going very well. I have only had a bit of nausea and no puking. (That is a relief as I HATE to throw up.) I have been a bit on the tired side. (Afternoon naps have been a good friend to me.)

Here is an ultrasound picture from my first doctor's visit. We were 8 weeks at this point, so not much to see.




I had my second doctor's appointment yesterday and everything checked out well. I got to hear the heartbeat again. (That is music to an expecting mother's ears.)

Here I am today. I haven't switched to maternity clothes yet, but have started buying a few pieces here and there. Everyone says stay in your normal clothes as long as possible, so I am. (They make this neat thing called a Bella Band. Let me tell you, it is helpful for when you can't button your pants anymore.)



We told our families this weekend on our trip. I will fill you in on how we did that later.

Congratulations! I was wondering when I would read a post like this from you. You look so cute and happy. I pray you have a happy uneventful pregnancy. And I agree that the heartbeat of your unborn baby is one of the greatest sounds ever! God Bless!

Holy Cats!!! I am so happy for you guys!! You are a cute preggers. I think by 13 weeks I got 13 lbs of saltine crackers stuck to my butt already.
