It's my due date.
It's another one of the reason's I've been pretty quiet on the blog. I've sort of made this blog about every aspect of my life, and I just wasn't ready to talk about it yet. I got the positive test on November 3rd. As someone who generally has a very small filter and shares a lot of aspects of my life, it was very very hard NOT to talk about it. But after what happened the last time, I kept my mouth shut. And that was hard.
We told very very few people at first - a few family members and a few close friends. As my pregnancy progressed and we reached mile stones (saw the heartbeat, etc) we began to tell more people. And now I'm telling the world! Baby Ford is coming! And we couldn't be more excited.
We had our 12 week ultrasound today. The heartbeat was measuring at 168bpm which is really good. The tech was able to get the measurements she needed before the baby woke up and started moving around like crazy. It even waved its little arms and I cried. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, and I seriously cannot wait for this baby. I'm already so in love.
I've been pretty lucky as far as symptoms - my major one is fatigue. I get tired very easily and usually have to be in bed by 9. Some days even earlier. I got occasional nausea but I haven't thrown up (yet). I think my body is handling the pregnancy pretty well, which I think is a good sign.
So now, pictures!!
This is our first ultrasound at 6w4d. We first saw the heartbeat on this day!
Today! At 12w1d. Measuring right on track!
