1st OFFICIAL doctor's appointment

We had our first official appointment with my wonderful midwife yesterday! They gave me some books and lots of helpful imformation about them and pregnancy! I had to get some blood work also, which I'm a pro at since I have to do it a lot! :) We tried to pick up the baby's heartbeat with the doppler but since my silly uterus is tipped backwards, it's harder to find baby's heartbeat, we just heard mine and my massive blood flow! I was of course, nervous about it. and my midwife said I am sure everything is fine, we will try again in 2 weeks! Well of course, I couldn't wait for 2 weeks. Sleeping last night was very hard! I was feeling sick so I really did have faith that everything was okay but I wanted to be 100% sure being the "new mommy" I am. My AWESOME midwife squeezed me in for an ultrasound this morning and sure enough, baby was soooo active and very much LIVING!! Heart rate was 163!! PRAISE GOD!!! Sweet pea was waving at us and punching and kicking like crazy! We saw baby's hand wide open!! so precious!! I ate Weiner Snitzel before, maybe "she" liked it. That's right, doctor said it sounds like a little girl but we will find out on October 1st at Peek-A-Baby!! Can't wait :) Stephen & I were so relieved and teary eyed! The baby grew so much since our 6 week ultrasound, it's amazing! Such a miracle and all the glory goes to God, the Creator :) Ultrasound picture coming soon!!

9 Weeks

Week 9 started by feeling really good...more so this week I have been feeling crummy in the evenings. I am trying to not even take my nausea pill anymore cuz it doesn't seem to help at that time anyways! Cross my fingers it's almost the end of the sickness!! I have been beyond sleepy this week. We have been in bed by 9:15 every night! WOW!! Not to mention we lay on the couch from after dinner till bedtime so we are practically sleeping then too haha. Saturday we went to Tulare because Stephen was asked to preach at their youth rally! We got to see Corey & Alyssa and some others we haven't seen in a while. That was a lot of fun! Went over to the Brassfield's afterwards and Stephen and I won in the water balloon toss!! GO US :) Sunday was fun as well, got to go to Citrus Heights and see my dear friend Ashlie! Monday, the sister's(Katie, Megan, Teah, Bryana & I) and all the kiddos for our first week of bible study! It was a great time. Katie made us lasagna and we got to chit chat while the kiddos played..and I got to cuddle with my new nephew Weston!

Week 8 is GREAT!

Just like the title says! 3 days with absolutely no morning, no afternoon, and no night sickness! PRAISE GOD!!! If I only have 2 weeks of that, I will be so thankful!!! :) I am crossing my fingers and praying it's over! :) Thank God for "miracle pills". My next appointment isn't till August 24th so a few more weeks! Tomorrow, hubby and I are celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary. We are heading up to a cute hotel in Arnold for the evening and going to take my parent's jeep and go topless :) It should be a GREAT time!! I have had some cravings this week....pickles, grilled cheese sandwiches, and smoooooothies! Delicious :) My hubby is so good to me and has been helping so much around the house when I was sick...He is such a keeper!! Much love.
Jess & Sweet pea :)
