Surreal.

Yesterday's ultrasound was awesome. But do you think that the techs know what they are doing to you when they take FOREVER to tell you what they are seeing? Aaron could see the screen, I could not. I was looking at Aaron, and his eyes gave away what he was seeing. And then the tech said - it's hard to see - and turned the screen to me - I could TOTALLY see the little flicker of a heartbeat. I was so nervous. I knew that I just wasn't ready to deal with bad news. And thank god, I didn't.

Many have felt this way in the past, I know. But it seems a little bit crazy that I'm pregnant. I've honestly never thought past the whole 'get pregnant' part - so I have to admit the whole idea of making the baby come out just kind of entered my head last night. Yeah. I'm going to push that to the back of my mind again for a few months.

Let's just say that Aaron has a 25 inch head. God save me.

This whole thing is surreal. Seeing the changes my body is going through. Feeling nauseous almost all the time (but no throwing up, thank god). Thinking about when I'll need to buy maternity clothes. Picking my OB/GYN - and actually scheduling my first appointment (next Tuesday!!!!!).

I'm finally excited. And enjoying. And just really thankful that I'm at this point.

Congratulations!! There is nothing more beautiful than a tiny little heartbeat flickering on the screen. I could not be happier for you. Yay!

I totally know what you mean. After spending so much time (and $) on baby-making it becomes surprisingly hard to believe that it all worked!

Jeramy has a huge head too, which concerns me greatly.

Yay for a heartbeat! Congratulations to you and Aaron.

Yay!

I read that the size of the mother's body is a more consistent predictor of baby size than dad's build. :-)

Congratulations!

Yay! I'm so glad you could see the heartbeat and they didn't torture you for too long. I also have no idea how babies come out, but I'm sure someone will fill me in when it's needed.

Woohoo!! Baby heartbeat and all! I am so glad you were able to be at sock camp and I had no idea there was an ob/gyn there! That was awesome. Take care.

Samantha said...

You deserve to be excited. And Aaron even deserves to have a little bit a swelled head!
