Baby Young

So... we are pregnant! 

We are going to have a baby Young or a young baby, whichever way you want to put it. We are due October 29th. Since McKay's Birthday is October 21st he wants the baby to either come on his actual birthday, or as far away from it as possible. We'll see how that works out. We are only 10 weeks and change along, but this pregnancy feels like it is taking FOREVER! We pretty much knew we were pregnant immediately, so I have felt pregnant since the beginning of February. Since we had the miscarriage in November I had already experienced early pregnancy symptoms and was recognizing them almost immediately. We found out for sure on February 19th. It was technically the first day that we could find out whether or not we were pregnant, and I told myself we would wait longer, but I felt so sick, and so sure I was pregnant I just wanted to get the test over with. Needless to say, it was positive. As were the tests we took after that. 

We decided to wait a little while longer to announce this pregnancy because we had just experienced a miscarriage and now realize how delicate that little life really is. We decided we would wait to tell people until we had our doctors appointment and saw that everything was ok. We had an early ultrasound at 7 weeks just to make sure the baby was growing like it should and that it had a heart beat. The last baby didn't have one of those, so when the hooked me up to the Doppler thing and I heard the baby's fast little heart beat I started laughing and crying at the same time. It was amazing. I am so excited for McKay to be able to hear it's heartbeat at our next appointment later this month.

We had our regular first pregnancy appointment at 9 1/2 weeks. So far everything looks good. The doctor said that the baby is measuring 3-4 days smaller than expected, but that is not enough to change the due date, so we are still on track for October 29th for now.

We are so excited to be parents (and also a little nervous) and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to start our little family. We both hope to have a girl first, but I keep feeling like it will be a little boy, so we will see what happens!

4 weeks, and soooo excited!

 10 weeks, and sooooo bloated!

I'm 4 weeks ahead of you and still bloated as heck. So I'm thinking that feeling NEVER goes away, haha.

Congrats again!
