Our baby!

As many of you know, Stephen and I are expecting our first baby on March 10th (my dads birthday). Although it came as a bit of a surprise, we couldn't be happier and are so excited for this next step in our lives. I am almost 3 months along and doing fabulous. I haven't been very sick at all which has been such a blessing. Occasionally, I will get a little nauseous here and there but it is very manageable and easily fixed with a few crackers. :)
Yesterday Stephen and I went to the doctor for our first OB appointment. We were so excited to hear the heartbeat but had no idea we would actually be able to see the baby with an ultrasound. The doctor put that jelly stuff on my stomach and in a few seconds we saw our little baby (which is the size of a grape right now) jumping around everywhere in my belly. It was so amazing to see and at that point it became so real to me. It was such a neat feeling and I felt so much love inside for this little child. I have always known that pregnancy is a wonderful thing but you can never really understand until it is happening to you. We can't wait for our baby to join our family in 6 months!
