September 1st

September 1st is a big day for Matt and I. It is the due date for our first baby!

I honestly still can't believe it. It is crazy to even type!

About six weeks ago I just wasn't feeling well. I was sooo tired and figured I must be coming down w/ something. After a few days of constant exhaustion I decided that maybe I should just take a test. I was a few weeks "late", but I just thought w/ Christmas and everything else maybe my body was just a little off. I bought the test but assured Matt, "I'm not pregnant.. can't be!"

The next morning... well everything changed:)

Matt had gone to take our dog for a walk.. I took the test. Big Fat Positive.. I think i was shaking. I had always imagined all these neat ways that I'd tell Matt I was pregnant, none of that happened as I could barely hold it in the second he walked in the door. I think he was in a coma for about 4 days:)

The next day we went to the doctor and confirmed and since then it has been quite the ride!

I have had a couple appointments now w/ my OB and just this past Thursday we got to hear the heartbeat. It was such an amazing thing and our baby's heart was beating strong at 150 bpm.

I have been feeling okay. I haven't been getting sick, which I am very thankful for! Just tired, headaches (which I never had before), heartburn.. pretty bad heartburn (which I had also never had before), feeling as if I am constantly going to the bathroom.. (I can only imagine when I get further along!) and a mix between nausea and EXTREMELY hungry. I have never had such an appetite!

We do plan on finding out if its a boy or a girl.. Matt can hardly wait until the beginning of April. He didn't know you had to wait so long:)

Speaking of Matt.. he has been incredible and did finally come out of his coma:) He is so excited to be a dad.

So.. as of today I am 12 weeks along...

I can't wait for September... :)
