Our Valentine's Announcement

We are so very excited to finally announce that we are expecting our first child this August! I've been pretty silent on the blog lately because of this. First, because I have a hard time keeping a secret and didn't have much else to talk about, but also because we literally were doing nothing. I've been at home exhausted and nauseous for about a month and a half. I'm finally feeling a bit better and getting more energy, so hopefully I'll be able to post more.

Our first appointment was at 10 weeks (two weeks ago). They tried to hear the heartbeat on the doppler, but the doctor said it was just too early. They were going to let us go and try again at 14 weeks, but we just needed some kind of reassurance that we do have a little bean in there! They got us in to the ultrasound room and let us see our baby and gave us a few pictures. He/she was flapping their arms and legs around and the heart was beating at a very strong rate of 171bpm. I thought we would be more emotional in that moment, but we both were in such awe. The above pic looks a little blurry, but you can definitely see the head, legs and at least one arm. Is baby even waving at us? :)

We plan on starting some belly pics now that we're at 12 weeks and there is finally a tiny belly to take pics of (or is it bloat? hard to tell). Looking forward to that 2nd trimester starting here soon!
