Big News...

So I've said in the past that I was going to become better at blogging. I am serious this time...because I want all my friends and family to be able to share our pregnancy experience with us. :) Yep, that's right, Cory and I are expecting a baby!
I found out I was pregnant on May 4th...through the use of a home pregnancy test...followed by two other home pregnancy tests (hehe). I was so nervous about being excited until everything was confirmed by the doctor.
We went to our first Ob/Gyn appointment this past Friday (May 16th) and got to see the heartbeat and everything! Now that has to be the greatest thing I've ever seen! When the pregnancy was first confirmed at this appointment, they said that I was 7 weeks and 3 days along and due January 1st. After doing the ultrasound, however, the doctor thought I was closer to 6 weeks and due closer to January 9th. At this point I really don't care about those specifics, I was just soooo happy to hear that the baby looked healthy and had a strong heartbeat!
And now for pictures...
This was right after the (first) positive home pregnancy test. Excuse how messy I look, I had just gotten up. :)
And here's my first belly shot. I guess I was between 5 and 6 weeks along here.
And here is the first baby picture! It's pretty fuzzy, but that's the little guy...or girl there on the bottom, right side of the big black area. :) The heart beating was this bright light pulsating on the screen there. It was soooo amazing, I wish you could see it in this picture! :)

Well, I hope you enjoyed the pictures and news. :) Check back often and keep us in your thoughts!
