First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes...

....a baby in a baby carriage!

We are having a baby!!! Baby T is due on January 17, 2010.

I've known for several weeks but I've been keeping it off of here just to make sure everything was going well. That's why I haven't had anything to talk about - because I was keeping a secret from you!

I found out the morning of June 2 and we had our first doctor's appointment on June 12. The picture in my header is from that appointment, when I was 8 weeks 5 days. I am now 12 weeks 1 day and we heard the heartbeat for the first time on our home doppler yesterday!

I want to post the sound of the heartbeat but I recorded it on my phone and my computer doesn't recognize the file from my phone. I will try to record it directly to my computer and post it on here. We have our next doctor's appointment on July 13 - one day after my birthday.

It was a surprise...we weren't planning on getting pregnant just yet but obviously God had different plans for us! We are thrilled and can't wait to add a little one to our little family. We are going to find out what it is going to be but we won't get to do that until the very end of August. I took a test that measures the pH in your urine and changes color to supposedly tell you what you are going to have. It is apparently 82% accurate in the real world and it said we are having a boy! It will be interesting to test it out and see if it was right. I have had a feeling it was a boy from the beginning, though.

That is my BIG news for now! I will update some more later. I'm trying to get a cute new background but Blogger is not cooperating with me. Hopefully I'll have that up soon :)
