Doctors Appointment

So Derek and I went to the Doctor yesterday, and we got to hear the heartbeat. When we first got in there Dr. B. Said that it was still early and we probably wouldn't hear anything, so he searched and searched, and right before he was about to put the microphone thingy away, there it was! It was loud and clear and it was perfect. I could have listened to it for hours. It was amazing. I will not be getting an ultrasound for another 9 weeks... which is kind of sad, but as long as I can hear the heartbeat and know that the baby is healthy I am happy. I feel as though my tummy has finally popped out a bit. Derek says I am looking more and more pregnant everyday. I am not sure if he is just saying that because he knows I am wanting to look preggers, or if he really thinks so., either way it is sweet of him. My next appointment is right before Christmas on the 22nd. By then I believe I will be out of my first trimester, but again the whole timing thing still is confusing. Yesterday the doctor said I was 9 weeks and 2 days, but last time I saw him I was 6 weeks and that was four weeks ago... so that would mean 10 weeks. I know the 40 weeks starts from the first day of my last period, but obviously I didn't get pregnant that week so the baby is actually 9 weeks, but I am 10 weeks...CONFUSING! Anyways, I am a happy camper! I am feeling better, although I am much more tired now.. but besides that I am feeling good.

Tummy: 30 inches

I am now 9 weeks pregnant... but the whole timing things is really confusing. Because Really I am more like 7 weeks, but the doctor starts the timing from the first day of my last normal cycle. So, I am not sure if when I read articles about what is supposed to happen each week, if I should read the 9 weeks, or if I should read the seven weeks? Help from you out there who have been pregnant! My next appointment is on Tuesday the 25th. I always get nervous that something will go wrong, I hope that is normal! I have not been sick at all lately, and I do not really "feel" pregnant. So this also worries me. I can't wait until the doctors appointment though. I hope he does an ultra sound. I heard at the 10 week appointment they we will see. Derek is off so he is going to go with me just in case.

So My waist has not grown since last week, but it is also hard to know if I am measuring in the exact same spot or not, but my boobs did grow by a whole inch!!! This is the one part of me that I was hoping would grow before Hawaii! :)

Here is my weekly pic. -------->

Dreaming of Twins

So I am having dreams that I am going to have twins. This is kind of starting to freak me out! Either I am nervous about having twins and that is why I am dreaming about it, or God is trying to prepare me... I am not saying I wouldn't be totally happy with twins, but wow going from zero to two is a little overwhelming. I guess I just have to wait and see what I am blessed with. (But I am still a little nervous) Who knows maybe Derek and I will be the new "John and Kate Plus 8"

We're having a a baby

It is official we went to the doctor and I am 6 weeks pregnant. I still can't believe it! We are so excited and are having a hard time with waiting until June to meet our baby boy or girl. I knew right away that I was pregnant. Not because I "had a feeling" but because I took 9 pregnancy tests. Yeah I know, I'm crazy. I just didn't think it would happen so fast. I was so happy to hear the doctor say for sure that I was pregnant. My next doctors appointment is on the 25th. So far I am feeling okay. I am nauseous all the time and hungry all the time. The tiredness has kicked into full gear as well. Well I will keep you posted, and more picks are going to come soon...
