IT"S OFFICIAL!!!!! (drumroll please...)

I am 11 weeks pregnant! Unfortunetly, we still have nine more weeks until we know the sex. You have to be 20 weeks for that. Here's our little one!

Here's me taking it all in

Let me tell you. I had no idea what I was in for today. We thought we might see a little something, no biggie. Maybe even hear a heartbeat. Well...the instant I laid on the table the lady poo'd a nice big blob of "warm" lube on my belly and placed the instrument on me. It tickled...a lot. Wow to my surprise...instant baby! It was even clearer on the monitor than what you see in pictures. It's amazing! Chris and I just stared at the monitor in awe with our jaws to the floor. We saw the heartbeat, legs, arms and body squirming and rolling all over. A few times, the baby rolled it's back to us and I could see the vertebrae! It is one of the most indescribable feelings in the world. The nurse told us everything looked great, and the heartbeat is strong and fast (it's supposed to be). We couldn't be happier! Oh, and we're due June 24th!

As an added bonus, here's what I did while sitting in the waiting room. I found this pamphlet amusing. Enjoy!

Isn't that an amazing feeling when you see the baby in you for the first time. I remember my first Ultrasound with Audrey it was right around 11 or 12 weeks as well. The excitement, nervousness and the reality all sank in on that day! Good luck and so happy you shared pictures with us.
