Our Christmas Gift!

Our first official appointment was on December 24th. We were very excited and happy when we seen our baby for the first time together. The baby was much bigger than when I seen it the previous week with and we seen it's strong heartbeat. My provider said that our official due date is July 22nd 2009! We are measuring to be 10weeks pregnant with a perfect baby in a perfect sac!

Okay, our official first appointment was scheduled for December 12th. Wes and I were so so excited. December 12th came and we got a call that our provider was out of the office and that we would have to reschedule our appointment. I was devastated and actually came to tears. Wes calmed me down and reassured me that everything would be okay. That day I had a long talk with God. God revealed to me that my baby was growing great and that my symptoms of pregnancy was his reassurance to me. Symptoms (nausea, vomiting, heartburn, tiredness, and just being hormonal) that seem so irritating are all great signs that our baby is thriving.

Being that I am a Labor & Delivery Nurse I was still just so curious to see my baby. I attempted to use the ultrasound on myself in an empty room when it was slow at work. I did not see anything that looked like a baby. So I broke down after only a few people knowing I was pregnant at work and told one of the Doctors. She asked freely if I wanted her to scan me and I said yes really really quick. I seen my baby and its heartbeat for the first time on December 18th. The Doctor also gave me a picture to take home and show Wes. I guess I have a few perks being in the hospital business!

Our first month pregnant

We are officially expecting! We found out on the 20th of November. I woke up early in the morning around 4 am and got down on my knees asking God if I was pregnant after being three days late. The last time I felt in my spirit a similar "yes" was when I sought the Lord if Wes was going to be my husband before we even start dating. After Wes awoke I told him that I had to go to Target to pick somethings up and if he would mind if I purchased a pregnancy test too. I anxiously arrived at target around 1030am. When I walked in the store every woman was either pregnant or had a baby in their cart. I thought to myself "Lord are you messing with me"? After purchasing all I had to get along with my home pregnancy test, I could not wait until I arrived at home to take it. So I took the test in the bathroom at the store. After about 10 seconds it read positive. I rushed home to tell Wes the news around 11am. It seemed like the longest car ride EVER. When I walked in the house Wes asked if I needed help with carrying anything. I said "YES" as I walked up stairs with the positive pregnancy test in my hand. As he turned around I told him we were pregnant and showed him the test. He asked if it was safe to touch the test. He eventually did and we then embraced as we also got choked up together.
