Yesterday we had our NT scan. We got to see baby again and this time it actually looks like a baby! The tech had the hardest time getting the photos she needed and my abdomen sure paid the price for that one. She had to keep jabbing at my abdomen in an effort to try and get the baby to move the right way. After about 45 minutes baby finally moved and she was able to get the photos she needed. YEAH!!! I love to see baby as often as I can so it was great.

Here we are 10 weeks and 6 days along. I am so excited that we have made it this far! Most of the fears I was having at the beginning are gone, most. I really want to shout to the world that we are going to be having our first child but when is the right time to tell and how do you tell people? Who do you tell personally and who do you let others tell? There are a couple of people that don't know that I really want to tell myself but other then that I am just not sure. I don't want to offend anyone by not telling them personally but at the same time this news is about us not them so why do we have to make sure we tell certain people ourselves.
When it comes to family I think we are going to leave it in the hands of our parents, both mothers have been very impatiently waiting to tell the world (one more understanding then the other) so I am sure they will be delighted to spread the news.
One of M's cousins is getting married next weekend so that again is something we have to take into consideration. We most definitely do not want to take anything away from such a special time in there lives but at the same time I am ready to tell now and I am a bit, maybe it's these raging hormones, irritated that my news has to take a back seat to hers. I did not time it so that we would be ready to tell just when she is about to get married. I am done hiding it from people! I want to tell now!
I guess deep down inside I know that waiting a little while longer is the right thing to do for us and for M's cousin I am just ready now and I am so excited!

Last week we got our first baby gift. Some amazing friends gave us some cute onesies with kitties on them. They also gave us a beautiful hand made blanket. It means so much to know that they care about us enough to make the baby something. It is so beautiful and I am sure baby T will love it! Thank you!!!

We had our first ultrasound on Thursday. They moved me up two days so our official EDD is April 12, 2010. Baby looked good, really it just looked like a blob but a good blob. Heart beat was really strong at 167 so that was great to hear. We go back for our NT scan on September 29th so I am looking forward to that.
My morning sickness is pretty much gone. As long as I eat every few hours I feel good. YEAH!

Tomorrow I will be 8 weeks and I am very excited. I really thought that I would not make it this far. I have my first doctors appointment tomorrow as well and I am hoping she will be able to give me some type of relief. If she does an internal exam she should be able to feel the size of my uterus so I am hoping all go's as expected. I am also expecting to get a requisition for my first ultrasound. I am really hoping that they don't make me wait until I am 12-13 weeks. That is WAY to long to have to wait. I want to go NOW I am so desperate to see a heartbeat.
I am so excited to be able to see this baby. Yeah for babies!!
