I found this on & it updates you weekly on what your baby is doing & how it's growing.Baby's brain -- both hemispheres! -- is growing fast, generating about 100 new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby's third!) is now in place.

Baby's First Photo Shoot

Our 1st ultra sound was today & we got to see the baby's heart beat. It was a preatty amazing experience and we are so excited to be parents. Our due date is April 16 2010 makeing the baby 6 weeks and 5 days old. Right now the baby is growing like crazy, and is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

1st Prenatal Appointment

I had my first prenatal appointment yesterday. It was pretty uneventful. I took another pee test to confirm the home pregnancy test results, and no surprise there- it was positive. It was a little reassuring to have a doctor confirm the exciting news though.

I met Dr. Peppy and really liked him. I was somewhat nervous because I have never been to a male OBGYN but he didn’t creep me out. In fact, he was really nice and laid back, I guess we will see how it goes when he “goes down on me”! He made me laugh when he referred to being pregnant as a condition and then proceeded to go over all of the things I can & can’t do anymore, it seemed like the list was never ending.

I’m not really sure when I had my last period so he used my last known period which was in June and when my July period should have been and came up with a couple of estimated due dates (EDD). If I conceived after my June period my EDD is 3/20/10 which will be our 1st wedding anniversary, and if I conceived after my July period my EDD is 4/20/10 which is Aaron’s birthday. Obviously, these dates are not 100% accurate but it gives us an idea.

I go back on 8/26 for our 1st ultrasound to confirm a delivery date and to hear the baby’s heartbeat. Aaron and I are beyond excited and we are praying for a healthy baby and a smooth pregnancy.

I'm Pregnant!!!

We had a pretty big change of plans this weekend, but I would not have had it any other way. I knew I was late but chalked it up to having a stressful month. I decided to test on Saturday & guess what... a Big Fat Positive! Aaron & I are so excited to be parents. I have a Doctors appointment on Thursday so I will check back then with updates!

Happy Friday!

I'm so glad it's Friday. I could not be more ready for the weekend. Tonight my friend Jen from work is going to come out with us. I think we're going to hit up the pub and have several drinks. Saturday our friends Tom & Tara are having a BBQ. I'm so excited to see baby Brody, lay by the pool, drink with good friends, and end the night off with our insanely competitive board games.

On a different note, Brooke got a job today at the golf course & she starts tomorrow! I'm glad things are working out for her and she seems to be enjoying herself so far.

I will try to remember to take pictures this weekend! I hope everyone has a fun & safe weekend!
