Our Big News!!-Yipeee!

We are having a baby!
We found out that we are going to be having a baby and we couldn't be any happier. I am 9 weeks and 2 days. We have been told that the 30x40 image of our dogs is going to have to be replaced by our baby and we are okay with that. We are excited whether it is a boy or a girl. I tried to have a bet with Ben on what the baby would be, but he couldn't decide and didn't want to play the game because it was too hard of a decision to pick. We even have an ultra-sound too. You aren't supposed to get one until 8-10 weeks, but we got it at 6 weeks. It may be because we have the hook up at the Women's Medical Center with Ben's dad being an OB-GYN. And for those who are asking, no he won't be delivering the baby, but he will definitely be in charge in another room.
Everyone is so excited for us and that makes it so much fun. One of our friends has given us a bag full of fun mother-to-be books and some fun pilates and yoga dvd's for when I decide I'm going to exercise. Thanks Shannon! One of the books is "Belly Laughs" by Jenny McCarthy. It is hilarious and totally worth reading. I will warn you though, she says things that will shock you. One, because of things that happen to when your pregnant that everyone forgets to tell you, and two, because it is coming out of Jenny McCarthy's mouth.
I have felt a little queasy here and there, but no vomiting thank goodness. Food isn't very appealing to me, but I will still eat it. A few cravings I've had lately are Chinese food, Red Barron mini pizzas, hamburgers, spaghetti, warm milk with vanilla extract and sugar, and Subway meatball sandwiches with salt and vinegar chips. Really, I don't think the cravings have hit yet because those are all things I wanted before I was pregnant. I've tried to be good and eat veggies, but it's a little hard.
We are due Feb 12th and have another appt with the OB in two weeks.
Please say your prayers for us and for a healthy baby.
Leave me a comment with any advice and/or questions if I forgot something. I want to share this with my blog viewers. Thanks everyone!
Look at my myspace to see the development of the baby.

Ben and I in the waiting room for our first meeting and then our first ultrasound.

This is my guess. I don't know what is what just yet, but I'm hoping when I go in in two weeks we can see more definition. That's my little Pistachio!!

The word is officially OUT! Yeah! You two will make such cute parents! And yes, you will replace the photo of the dogs but as a Mom to 2, I will warn you now...your kids will be the last to be photographed every Christmas for the yearly cards. Just an occupational hazard.

See you tomorrow!

Hi friend!! CONGRATS again! =) I'm so excited for you. It's such a wonderful and magical time. I looooved Belly Laughs. So funny! Although, I feel like her pregnancy and labor was a heck of a lot harder than mine! It was smooth and easy 90% of the time. My advice is to try to enjoy this pregnancy. Sleep as often as you want. Take a pre-babymoon with your husband! We took a week long pre-babymoon to the beach and it was heavenly. Cherish each new phase in your pregnancy. It's all such a miracle. I'll be praying for ya'll! Hugs!

Sarah- I think that sounds like a great idea. I think we are going to try and plan a babymoon for sure. We love San Diego, so maybe we'll go there.
