We had our first OB appointment on January 21st. It was the basic full exam, chatting with the doctor about what to expect, urine and blood samples. We'd figured at that point we where 9weeks 2days pregnant but when the doctor checked the size of my uterus she estimated we where more like 10-12 weeks. Therefore she scheduled an ultrasound to find out exactly how far along we where and to figure out our due date. Other than seeming to be a little further ahead she said everything was looking great. So, we scheduled that for January 31st and waited a very long 10 days to see our little baby love.

Well baby today is the big day! Our first ultrasound to see just how old you are! When I had my first OB appointment we thought that we where about 9 weeks along (that was last week) but after checking the doctor thought we could be more like 10-12 weeks. Meaning today we could be somewhere
between 11.5 and 13.5 weeks.
I'm not sure how I slept last night baby. I am SO excited to see your little self bouncing around and hear the doctor say that you look healthy and wonderful. You've turned your mommy into all sorts of worried baby. I'm constantly wondering if you're okay in there so seeing you todayis bound to help me relax a bit. I think daddy will love it if I relax a bit too. Looking forward to seeing your lovely self baby. You have me so in love already.

I am in love! Seeing our baby moving around today inside my belly was simply amazing! The little bean was trying to do back flips during the ultrasound..cutest thing in the world! The heart beat was steady and strong at 169bpm and hearing it made me cry. Hubs couldn't believe his eyes and was shocked when the tech showed him a model of how big the baby actually is. Seeing baby move, wiggle and hearing it's heart beat made this all so real. Leaving the office I couldn't help but feel all sorts of excited, amazed and blessed.
This new adventure came far sooner than we ever expected but we're ready to take on the challenges and excitement that being parent's involves!
