Two lines....A Change in Life

Wow! Just in case someone out there doesn't know yet, we are having a baby! The focus of my blog will be shifting as we try to keep family and friends updated on the progress of the pregnancy. It's definitely NOT a time for weight loss anymore!

I still can't believe it! Today we had our first ultrasound and it was truly amazing. I don't think it all seemed real until we saw the little heart beating today. I haven't really been able to enjoy the miracle we were given until today. I had been focused on the heartburn, the crazy cravings, and the ever present nausea. Now I know what's causing all that and WOW, just wow. I know things will get better and then worse again until it's all over, but it's nice to see what's causing all that. It's still the scariest thing ever to me, as I'm not that confident in my ability to parent, but it's happening. What an amazing way to start the new year! (I'll try to post the blurry ultrasound picture soon. I have to get it scanned first!)

Happy New Year everyone!

I still can't believe it!! Everybody swears the parent instinct kicks in as soon as it arrives. What an exciting new year. My niece just found out about my sister-in-laws pregnancy. She wants to name it Lucky or Trail Mix. I don't think she gets a vote!!!
