After losing a baby in October... We are excited to announce we are Pregnant.

I am 11 weeks today and Due September 7th!

We found out right before New years and then had an ultrasound at 7 weeks. They were unable to get the trans-vaginal to work so they measured from on top of my tummy and the baby had a great heartbeat of 136 but was measuring 1 week behind. I know exactly when we conceived so even though the doctor wasn't worried I was.

I was given another ultrasound at 8 weeks. At this ultrasound everything went great, The baby measured 8 weeks on the dot and had a heartbeat of 174. We were very hopeful but didn't want to say anything till we made it past the time of the loss of our last baby.

Yesterday I went to the doctor and we had a scare when he could not get a heartbeat on the Doppler. We were very upset and worried but were sent for an Emergency ultrasound where they found baby was just hiding. Baby is doing great. He/she had a heartbeat of 189 and was measuring again right on the dot (10 weeks 6 days). Baby slept most of the ultrasound but did wake up long enough to give us a wave with its hand.

I have been very tired and nauseous. My cravings include fruit, pizza and lately I can't get enough Lemonade.

I will be finding out if it is a boy or girl but Phil wants to be surprised. So in an attempt to keep it a surprise to Phil I won't be telling!
