Not wanting to jinx myself!

I am now 8 weeks and 4 days and am still feeling pretty good! Hence, the title of the post.....I'm really trying not to brag because I know things could change any minute. My biggest complaints up to this point are that I have been having heart palpitations like crazy and in the last 2 weeks it feels like I cant take a deep breath for the life of me. Both of these are due to hormones and should subside in the next few weeks, hopefully. We had another doctors appointment this past Friday and everything still looks great. Its amazing what a difference there was in the ultrasound picture in just 2 short weeks! It actually resembles a baby now, with eyes, and a nose, and feet, and a HUGE brain!! Not going to lie, at first I thought the big dark spot might be hydrocephalus and was a little freaked out. Turns out its the hindbrain :) This is the ultrasound at 6 weeks: the bubble looking thing is the yolk sac and the bright white line looking thing to the left of it is the baby....

And here is the one from Friday ( 8weeks and 2 days):

Still looks kinda weird, but much more human :)

This weekend Johnny and I are going on a roadie to watch O-State play Texas A&M with some of our good friends. Hopefully the weather will be better than it was for this weeks game!

There is a first time for everything.....

So....Here goes! I'm going to try to be cool like my friends Rachel and Lindsi and try this blogging business out. No guarantees!! I recently found out that there is a bun in my oven, so I figured this would be a good way to keep the family and friends updated. Johnny and I went to the first Dr's. appt on Wednesday and I was measuring right at 6 weeks. We got to hear the heartbeat, which was a very surreal experience. I think it made it a million times more real for both of us. The due date is April 25, 2012. I'm sure in the next few weeks it will all start setting in. Even though this was something we planned, it still feels nuts to think that we are going to be parents. Responsible for another life.Ahhhhhhh!!
