week 17...ish

Memorial weekend after eating a lot of BBQ and snacks...
In the baby's future room....                            

We cannot wait for June 11th, when we have our 20 week ultrasound and find out the gender of our baby! I have been feeling well, but my doctor said I am on the borderline of being anemic, so I am taking more iron supplements including my pre-natals. I haven't felt the baby kick or move yet...but can't wait to feel that!

The best sound I've ever heard

At our second appoint we met with the nurse practitioner Rita to hear results from all the blood testing I had done previously. To our relief, all the tests came out good, she just recommended I get more iron in my diet. Then the best part happened...we heard our baby's heartbeat! It was the greatest sound ever, I instantly started crying with excitement and relief. It is official..there is actually a little person growing inside me. I can now feel comfortable to tell all my friends the exciting news..although many of them already had a feeling something was going on. On May 11th we will have our first ultrasound and I hope to remember to have Bruce videotape it with my phone so I can share the experience with everyone.
