Christmas Cards

Christmas is going to be here in only two months! Morgan and I decided we want to send out our first Christmas as a family. We wanted to take the pics early before my belly starts showing so my sister katie came with us and took some pictures for us. I haven't decided which one to send out yet, and I still need to edit them but here are the rough drafts.
P.S. If you would like a card, please leave me your address!

I am 12 weeks already and I can't believe I am almost out of the first trimester! I just got a cute pregnancy journal from Barnes and Noble called The Belly Book. You write how you're feeling, how you felt when you first found out you were pregnant, how you felt hearing the heartbeat, and has places to put the ultrasound pictures and to write about them. I don't want to forget how I felt, and I think it will be something that will be fun to read when the baby gets older.

I think so far I've been pretty lucky with the pregnancy symptoms because I haven't thrown up! I have felt nauseous almost every morning, and sometimes throughout the day, but not unbearable. Other symptoms I have been having aren't so fun! I have been exhausted lately! Partly because I am not sleeping as well, and partly because all the baby brewing makes your body tired... make that exhausted. I am lucky to have Morgan cause he loves making me dinner and helping me around the house! It's really cute! Another thing that happens during pregnancy is hunger. I am eating a lot more, and if I am hungry it's almost unbearable! My dr. wants me to gain about 35 pounds which is more than average since I started my pregnancy under weight. Other than those few things, I would say I have it pretty great! I thoroughly enjoy my pregnancy and find each day very exciting!

We're having a baby!!

It's official, we are expecting a baby! I am 11 weeks now, and the official due date is April 27th! We are extremely excited and can't wait for our new little addition.

The ultrasound picture is 10 weeks along so the baby is really small, but it was so exciting to see our cute little baby moving and the heart beating! I am really excited to be a mommy, and Morgan is ecstatic to be a daddy! I know he will make such a great dad!

We still have to wait until 20 weeks to find out what we are having and I am already getting impatient! I can't wait to find out so we can start buying cute little baby stuff.
