Our first picture of our sweet baby!

Last friday we went to the doctor for our first sonogram. I would have to say that it was quite amazing. We both sat there in awe about what we were really looking at. Kind of made things seems a little more real. We were not able to hear the heart beat yet but we were able to see it on the screen. It was going so fast. The picture doesn't show you much but what we got to see in person was amazing. He/she is just the size of a little peanut but growing fast. We are going to be ending our 9 weeks this week. We hope to hear the heart beat at our next dr. appt in october.

As for me I feel very very FAT!!! I still fit in my clothes but barely. I think I am eating too much because it is not baby at this point. So needless to say my self confidence stinks because I just feel and look miserable. Shawn is being a great support though. Its tough to feel so big when your not even showing yet. I eat a lot but more little things throughout the day as I can't really eat really big meals anymore. (depends on the day) ha ha! But I have noticed that I have more energy when I workout...the problem is getting myself to work out :). I have been doing good though. As for nausea...its better but still comes and goes. But definitely better. I think I have a hang on how to eat throughout the day to not let myself feel so yucky! As for now things are good!

We had our First Doctors appt!!!

Just wanting to update everyone as we had our first doctors appt this week. First off, it was the longest appt every! They threw so much information at us that we both don't remember half of it. But this did confirm the pregnancy as that has been a strange fear of mine to find out that I am no really pregnant. (then how would I explain all these crazy symptoms) lol! But our estimated due date at this time is April 19th. I will be eight weeks as of tomorrow. The more exciting news is that we go next week for our first sonogram. We are both VERY excited! I will do my best to try and post some pictures when we get them. So be on the look out!

As for me turning 30, Thank You to everyone that had called to wish me a happy birthday! It was a crazy day with work and then going out to dinnner. Shawn was awesome. He sent me flowers, took me to a nice dinner, and bought me an awesome new stereo system for my car. I can't wait to get it installed. It was a great day and we are going to dinner with all the aunts and uncles tonight for dinner. I can't say that turning 30 was great, but my friends and family did all the could to make it an awesome day! Thank You!!!

Ft. Lauderdale vacation came and went quickly!!!

So we came back from Ft. Lauderdale a day early due to yucky weather! It sucks but is good all in the same. Now we can have a day to relax before heading back to work. It was great spending time with our best friends. It was different for me as I got to sit back and watch everyone drink and have fun! Funny thing was that I had no desire to drink and it was nice not having to wake up feeling so yucky....wait I did anyways! But here are a few pictures of the fun times that we had spending our 30th birthdays together! I love you Jenny!

As of now we are going onto our 7 weeks with Baby McKendrick! Week 6 was good with some major times of nausea. I am ready for the crappy feelings to end and start enjoying the pregnancy. I wake up feeling yucky and go to bed feeling yucky. I am also ready to have energy to do things. Work has been tough due to being so tired and the emotions are all out of control at times. We go to the doctor this coming thursday so I will make sure to let you know how it all goes! Cross your fingers as I hope all is going well!!!!
