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!
