Me too!

(Please ignore the ultra dirty oven in the above picture. It's for illustrative purposes only. I didn't realize how much it needed to be cleaned until I took this picture.)

Do you get it? If you don't then you can scroll down to the next picture and then it should be pretty clear.

Yep, I'm pregnant! About seven weeks along. I had my first prenatal appointment today and everything looks good. Got to see the little bean, it's heart beating, so that was a highlight. Other than that it was just lots of paperwork. Oh and I'm very relieved to know that there is only one baby in there, people kept bringing up twins and it was making me nervous. Plus I've been really bloated this entire time and already look like I'm 4 months pregnant! (Sorry if that's tmi.) Maybe it's because I never got my stomach back in shape after Kaylin. Hopefully it will go back down before it starts getting big--i'm not supposed to be this big yet. And I would show a picture but I'd be a bit embarrassed so I think I'll wait on that.

(Here's a picture of the little guy, or girl, at seven weeks.)

We found out about the pregnancy (it was planned) at the beginning of February, but I wanted to wait until my appointment before telling lots of people, just to make sure everything was alright and that I was actually pregnant.

My due date is approximately October 13th, but based on my temperature readings I ovulated late and the ultrasound measures later too, so it's probably a few days later.

Kaylin is too young to really know what's going on, but she'll be almost 2 1/2 by the time the baby is born, so hopefully by then she'll understand and be excited. She's really into babies right now, always pointing them out and loves carrying around baby dolls, rocking and feeding them, (even trying to nurse them!) so I'll take that as a good sign. That's one thing that is really going to be different this time around and that is having a toddler that is used to being the center of attention (and she's still nursing and very much not ready to quit). It's going to be a learning process but hopefully she'll love her little baby brother or sister and they'll get along great and be really close. I'm going to have to start getting tips from parents of multiple kids on how to balance things.

Well I can't think of anything else to add, and hopefully now i'll be better about posting more often, although I really must say I've been completely unmotivated and even thinking about not having a blog anymore, so we'll see. I still love reading everyone else's though!

My Valentines

Happy Valentines Day! (A day late!) I'm so thankful for all of the love in my life, my husband and daughter, family and friends! I'm very blessed! Hope you all had a day full of love!

(Kaylin was a bit grumpy here because it was a little past her naptime. It was the only clear shot of her in her red shirt and red bow that I got. Plus I think it's kind of cute.)
