So...we found out we were pregnant at the beginning of July. We saw the baby for the first time on August 9th.
I felt great for the first 12 weeks. I had very few symptoms. I dealt with some nausea, but nothing that Zofran couldn't take care of! (BTW...Zofran is a M-I-R-C-L-E drug when you are preggers!) I had fun sharing the news with family and friends. Everyone has been very excited for us.
I'm really glad that my neighbor is only a little over a month farther along than I am. It's nice going having someone to share the experience with on that level. We got to hear the heartbeat in September. That was an indescribable experience! It was amazing!!!!! I told Derek the baby is definitely his, it was being difficult and moving while Dr. Anderson tried to find it!
The last few weeks have been rough. I have suffered from morning sickness almost daily. I can only be thankful it started late and seems to be letting up for now! At almost 16 weeks, I'm feeing more energetic. I felt the baby move last week a few times! I had to stop and think when I felt it the first time. that was incredible feeling! I have already had to break down and buy maternity clothes because none of my pants fit and my shirts have started getting snug! Thank goodness I have great a great family that has chipped in and helped with that!
I go back during the first week of November for another sonogram and to find out what we are having. I can't wait!!!!! This month will hopefully fly by between work and studying for comps. I am amazed that it is already October! At this rate I don't know how I will get everything done by March! Our due date is March 26. If I can make it to that point, I will be able to take the last 8 weeks off from school and enjoy almost 5 months of being Mommy before I have to go back to work.
I picked out an ocean theme for the nursery. My early splurge was the bedding set I found for $100 off its normal price. I just couldn't resist that kind of deal! I can't wait to set the nursery up!
Ok, I think I have included the important points of the last 16 weeks....I will post more as I have new thoughts, information, and ideas. Enjoy!
