Baby Girl

We are expecting a baby girl May 13, 2013.  We are so excited! I want to remember this precious time so I am going to start blogging more so I can have some documentation. Here is the story of the beginning.

How we found out....
It was the day I should find out and I REALLY wanted to take a hot bath. I decided to take a test. Zach and I waited the whole three minutes and it came back negative. I was little sad and Zach was a little glad. He comforted me and told me that when the time was right it would happen. The next day after school I felt a little off. I decided to take another test. I was by myself this time because I knew that Zach would think I was crazy for doing it again. As I was waiting for the results I looked down at the garbage can. Guess what I saw? The darn test that I had taken the day before that once was negative had gone POSITIVE. I was freaking out. The second test soon came back with two lines. This was real! I was really pregnant. I have never been so happy in my life. Tug and I had a little party. We ran around, screamed, and jumped on the bed. I then called Zach to see when he would be home. He was going to be another hour so I had time to think of a way to tell him. I went to baby gap and chose out a outfit and I wrapped the outfit and the test together. He came home and I giddily had him open it. He did not believe me at first but when he finally figured it out, he gave me a hug and we celebrated together. We went to dinner and then snuggled and watched a movie. It was one of the best days of my life. 

Frist trimester....
The first trimester was tough for me. I was really nauseated, tired, and dizzy. I felt like the baby was taking all of me. I passed out, threw up, and could not eat anything but carbs. Cereal was my life saver! I will forever be grateful for Cheerios, Special K, and Honey Bunches of Oats. Even though this time was hard I was grateful for it. Each day I was sick meant that I was still pregnant and that the baby was still there. It was a reassurance that I almost found comforting. At my 12 week appointment we got to hear our babies heartbeat. It was the sweetest thing I had ever heard in my life. I will never forget that moment. Once I hit 14 weeks this trimester ended along with all the sickness. It felt so good to be back.

To be continued......
