Baby Names

You all know me and my need to have decisions made. So we have officially decided upon a boy's and a girl's name for the baby. If the baby is a girl, we have decided on Samantha Gillian and if it is a boy, we have decided on Aidan Tyler. We'll let you know as soon as we know, just which one it is going to be!

Finally my first OB appt and ultrasound

I am exactly 8 weeks today and here are our first pictures of the baby! Everything is going well and the baby's heartbeat was fine at 142 beats per minute. Dr said everything looked good and healthy! Hearing the heartbeat today was so awesome!! And seeing it beating was even cooler! Just this neat little flickering movement. They did adjust my due date back... so I am exactly 8 weeks today.

Just an Update

Well, I haven't really posted much. But not much new is really going on. Starting to get a little queasy from time to time, but that's about it. Last week we bought our travel system since it was on sale. So we are slowly starting to pick up some of the bigger things so that it won't be such a dent in the bank account later! We are starting to let family and friends know about our big news, so that has been a fun expereince. Will post more next week and will hopefully have some pictures form the ultrasound to post too!

1st appt

Well I had my first appointment on Tuesday. They started off with an US which was really cool, but a little frustrating too. Based on my LMP I should have been 5 weeks 5 days, but after the Ultrasound and they Dr determined that I must only be 4 weeks 6 days. So frustrating b/c they didn't see the baby yet, only the sack, because it is too early, and now I have to go back again in two more weeks. But so far things looking really well. My last HCG was over 3,400 and that was the Friday before my appt, and I don't remember my progesterone but was in the high 20's and I guess that was ok too. So we're keeping our fingers crossed!
