First off, thanks to everyone that commented when we made the big announcement! Your enthusiasm made me a little less scared, and more excited!! Also, thanks for all the advice! Keep it coming! I went to the doctor yesterday and I got to hear the heart beat! It was amazing!! It is so weird to think that there is actually a little person inside of me! The doctor said that I haven't gained any weight yet, but that is ok. He said that my uterus is now the size of a grapefruit, and the baby is doing well. Oh, and for those of you that go for the "heartbeat gender rumor" our baby's heartbeat was 160--which means a girl!--but our doctor said that is just an old wife’s tale.
So, here is the best news!!! All of my friends have to wait to find out gender until 19, 20, 22+ weeks to find out the gender. I knew my doctor looks earlier than most but I thought he was going to tell me to come back in 4 weeks to find out the gender, but he said to come back in 3 weeks!! I will be 16 weeks then when I get to find out!! WAHOO!!! Hurry and make your votes on a girl or a boy! Darin and I are hoping for a boy, but would be thrilled with either!! I am just so excited to start a baby room!!! We are so excited to be parents!!
