So, today we had our first doctors appointment. Although, we kind of cheated a little and got an ultrasound last Monday. Okay, I guess I should back up a little bit even though I won't go into too much detail because that part is all over now. Lets see...last weekend I got a little paranoid about some bleeding that I had been having so I called the doctors office and they had me go in a get a blood test done on Friday and again on Sunday so they could measure my hormone levels and make sure they were going up like they should. So, we got that over with and then they had us come in for an ultrasound last Monday. Everything looked really good and we even got to hear the heartbeat! It was the most amazing sound ever and made me feel so much better after I was trying not to think the worst all weekend. Then today was the official appointment. It went really well. I really liked the doctor I saw and everything looked good. We also found out why there was some bleeding going on which was really reassuring and nothing to worry about. I also got a prescription for hopefully some pills that will make this morning sickness (pretty much all day sickness for me!) at least a little better. Oh, and the doctor said that even though the ultrasound showed that I was not quite as far along as they thought I was he said it wasn't a big enough difference to change the due date. So, looks like it will be March 24th! I kinda have a feeling it will be a little later than that but who knows. Kurtis and I met on April 1st so that would be pretty funny if that is when the baby was born. Our whole life would be a joke! Okay, lame I know. Well, thats it for now.

So, I can't keep it in any longer! Kurtis and I are going to have a baby!!! We are so excited! Im not very far along and I was going to try to wait to say anything until I had my first doctors appt., but anyone who knows me knows I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut. I have a doctors appt on the 17th and we are anxiously awaiting that. Until then, when we should find out a more definitive due date, the date we have is March 24th. We are so excited, a little surprised that is happened this quickly after going off birth control, but we are not complaining at all! Can you tell Im happy about this? :) I took a pregnancy test about a week and a half ago and I think I have been pretty much in shock so that has what has kept my mouth shut for this long. I have to admit, I feel like crap a lot of the time but I guess that is what happens. For someone who loves food as much as I do its kind of weird to have absolutely no appetite at all. Every time I think about any kind of food it make me want to throw up, I actually did throw up at work on the plane in the galley today! That was an adventure! But, bring on the sickness because I will have a little miracle to show for it next spring! Crazy!
