I Believe...

The truth is finally setting in. I stare at the u/s pics for moments at a time unable to believe they are really of my baby. But it really is strating to sink in. After all these years and all these countless trips to the RE, a miracle really has happened. We're really going to have a baby of our own.

Needless to say, our family is thrilled, we are thrilled. A small bit of progress has started on the nursery. We are definitely going to find out the sex of baby bubbles. Our next u/s is scheduled for Jan. 5th. So hopefully we will be able to see that day.

Everyone is convinced, I will have a girl. I really don't know. I thought at first maybe a boy, but I really can't say I have strong feeling one way or another.

My body really started to shift this week at 13 weeks. My regular jeans definitely don't fit at all anymore. Work / dress pants are still a doable as long as they are fairly stretchy fabric. I have to get out and at least get some pants next weekend. Mater.nity clothes suck! I couldn't wait until I had to wear them, now I can find nothing that feels comfortable or looks flattering. Maybe it is my prepregnancy plus size that makes it more difficult or perhaps I am just at that in between stage right now. Time will tell. But I think a major shopping trip is in order soon.

I think we're actually having a baby!

We saw it! It looked like a baby and they tell me it's in me! I can't believe it. Me - I'm really going to have a baby! I don't think I honestly believed it was really going to happen until now!

We saw the little baby bubbles rolling around, stretching out it's arms and legs and a beautiful heart beating strong at 163!

It was wonderfully amazing.

I'm having a baby, I think I'll go shout it from the roof tops!!

12 Week Ultrasound...

Today's the big day. The first real look at baby bubbles. Hopefully I'll be posting later today about how wonderful it was. Honestly I'm scared. I know it's silly to be scared at this late date and I've already heard a strong heart beat. But anything can happen and today, I just want to be reassured all is going well in there. Please pray for us today.

I'll post later with details.
