The end of the first trimester

Today officially marks the start of the 2nd trimester! Crazy to think we made it through the first! Thank God it was a pretty easy 13 weeks - no morning sickness, not too much nausea and the exhaustion wasn't too bad! We had our appt with the doctor on Dec. 10th just for a checkup, baby had a heartbeat of 155 and was moving around like crazy! We set a date for the gender ultrasound and it's Jan. 22nd!! Thankfully we have the holidays to keep us occupied until then. Doctor also gave us the ok for all travel, including going to the Virgin Islands to see my mom in February and then to Rome in March!! Fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong and we're able to keep those trips scheduled!!

Joe and I went to Florida for Thanksgiving - it was a pretty easy trip and not too many stops for bathroom breaks :) People thought my bladder was bad before, it's even worse now!

Here's a 13 week belly pic...not much of a change but there's some. I'm having a hard time buttoning my pants (I tried to fit into a pair of my pre-pregnancy skinny-jeans this weekend - HA! That didn't happen, I felt like a sausage :) So every now and then I break out the maternity jeans just to give myself some comfort!

9 weeks and counting!

Today is officially 9 weeks! My pants are starting to get tighter and the little blob is now at 2 cm! We were able to see the blob again at our appt yesterday. He has little buds and a big ole head (we were reassured by the doc that his body will catch up :) He was moving around and his little heartbeat was at 180 bpm!

Here's a picture of Joe trying to act like he's the one going through all the body changes *rolleyes*

Our First Glimpse!

It was definitely love at first sight! On October 12th we were able to not only see our little blob but also hear the little heartbeat!! It was an emotional time for us as I had been having some complications with the pregnancy and was under close watch by my doc. It was an amazing sound and at 6 weeks, 1 day the little blob's heart rate was 123 beats per minute. Such a beautiful sound!!

I also took a "before" shot (I was already 5 weeks!) so I could always remember that pre-pregnancy bod! :)

Joe + Chrissie = Baby!!

The morning of September 27th I woke up to a funny feeling. Running to the bathroom I ripped open the cabinet, tore into the package and proceeded to pee on a stick :) I watched as not one but two little lines came up...thinking it had to be wrong I peed on another stick - this time one that actually spelled the words out! Within seconds a beautiful word came up...PREGNANT! I couldn't believe my eyes! Then came the decision - do I wait till after work and tell Joe the sweet, creative way I had planned or do I go wake him up and share the news now? Shaking and not thinking properly, I decided I couldn't wait!! I woke Joe up, told him I had something for him and then flipped the light on while shoving the pee-stick in his face. Stunned, shocked, confused, excited, we both couldn't believe it. We were in shock for most of the day as it slowly started to sink in. We still can't believe it! We're having a baby!!!
