Our little peanut!!

We got to see our little peanut today for the first time.

There is no other word than AMAZING!!! We both cried when we just saw the baby and then when we heard the heartbeat, we cried some more.

I never realized how truly amazing an ultrasound would be. I didn't want it to end!

I'm measuring 8 weeks 2 days, which is 6 days further than I thought. 2 months down, 7 more to go! :-)

Here is out little peanut! There's only 1 in there, she said but it kind of looks like 2. haha The bottom left bulge, she said was a yolk sack. I hope she was right and there's really not 2 in there. We did only hear 1 heartbeat though.

Could Sept. get any better??

September has been such an amazing month for us. On September 1st, we found out we are expecting and then yesterday, September 22nd, we got a call from our Realtor that we FINALLY got a house. We have been looking since the middle of January and we put this offer in on May 15th. It has been over 4 months and we were beginning to think it was never going to happen.

Well, little did we know, the Lord had a big plan in store for us. He got us a baby AND a house all at once. Wow. We are SO happy and a little nervous at the same time. We can’t wait to get out of our 1 bed/1 bath, 800+ square foot apartment. It’s too small and there’s no room for baby stuff OR a baby. Haha

We enter escrow on Monday, the 27th and we should know more information about when we’ll close and stuff. Woohoooooooooooooooo!!

So, Mr. A was at class last night when I got the call from our Realtor. Of course, I couldn’t wait so I text him the good news and he was super excited.

I was making tacos and I just started crying. I couldn’t stop. I was so thankful for what the Lord has given us this month that I truly feel extremely blessed. It’s such an amazing feeling. Our lives are moving forward and we couldn’t be happier!

Here's the outside of it. I don't really have any nice inside pictures right now.

Ok....the REAL reason I've been MIA because I AM PREGNANT!!!!!!

I have been avoiding this blog as there were some family members were followed it and I didn't want them to find out from here.

We are shocked, ecstatic, know all the normal feelings when finding out you're pregnant.

We found out on Sept. 1st and I'm approximately 6 weeks 1 day from my calculations, which I know when I ovulated so I have to be pretty damn close to that. Our first ultrasound is Sept 29th! We can't wait!!!

My EDD is May 15, 2011! We love May!!!!

Bad blogger

I'm so sorry I have been MIA for a while now. Things have been crazy with work...we're required to do some OT for a few months.

Mr. A is in school now a few days a week so he's not home Mon-Wednesday night until about 7:30. You would think this would allow me to blog but it hasn't.

We are getting ready for a wedding in California next weekend. Mr. A's cousin is getting married and Mr. A is a groomsman plus we are driving. So we're trying to get everything ready to go so after work on Wednesday, we can hit the road. Yes, we are going to be driving AGAIN. It takes about 10-11 hours and for me, it's very hard driving through the night. I get VERY tired and my body just wants to go to sleep once the sun goes down. I know, my poor Mr. A! He's good at it though.

We are very excited to see his family again since all of his cousins will be together again. That hasn't happened since Christmas of 2008. There are new babies we haven't seen yet, ok, only one but I get excited when there are any babies.

I will be back with lots of pictures and updates.
