We are half way through the first trimester!

So far I'm experiencing all of those lovely first trimester joys including:

"morning" sickness; which shows up right after dinner
bloating (and those things associated with it)
enlarged and tender breasts
vivid dreams
absent mindedness

All in all it's not too bad even if my facebook status appears snarky. The end result will be worth it all.

I had a doctor's appointment with my GP last Tuesday and they had me pee in a cup to confirm what we already knew. We went over some basics and then gave me a list OBGYNs to contact. In the process of calling I found a practice that has CNMs (Certified Nurse Midwife) and I made an appointment with one of them. I see her on the 13th, which is still two weeks away. I hope we'll get to hear the heartbeat and see our little belly bugg for the first time.

Josh has been super supportive and has taken on all of the animal related chores so I don't have to be exposed. He's also been reading all of the pregnancy books that are laying around the house and picking up on the chores I've let become lax.

Over all everything is going well!

Expanding our hearts for baby # 1

Recently Joshua and I found out we would be expanding our family.

Its still early as we are only 5 weeks along, but we are bursting with joy! We have our first prenatal appointment on September 22nd. It feels so far away from now!
