Noccalula Falls

Our first trip as a family of four.
I am about 7 weeks pregnant in this picture.
Chris and Julien had a great time, but I wasn't doing so well because the unbearable heat was making the nausea even worse than normal.
I was a trooper and found a nice comfortable rocking chair to settle into while Chris and Julien played putt-putt, then I managed to follow them around as they checked out the wildlife and the scenery.

First Portrait































So tiny but so precious.

First Sonogram

Today we had our first sonogram to see just how far along I am .
I am 6 1/2 weeks and my due date is January 14, 2007.
The baby's heart rate is 143 BPM.
Chris couldn't believe how big Baby Blob's heart is already.
Everything looks great so far and we are all so thrilled!
Check back later this afternoon to see the baby's first pictures!

Julien has already vetoed Grayson for a boys name - he says that a little girl at his school is named Grayson (so that's out)!

Update

I have had blood work to see how the pregnancy is progressing and so far everything looks great.
My HCG levels are 22.0 which means that I am very pregnant - I'm guessing that means around 7 weeks!
We will find out for sure on the 26th.
Check back for more updates.

Confirmation!!!!

We just found out yesterday that we are expecting.
We have to go back for our first glimpse of the baby on May 26th.
The doctor isn't sure, but thinks I am between 4 1/2 to 7 1/2 weeks pregnant.
Chris, Julien and I are all very excited about the new addition to our family!
Check back for more details and pictures on the 26th.
