so long, no post

Sorry... it's been 3 weeks since I last blogged. This pregnancy is kicking my butt! I'm constantly exhausted and nauseous. I spend most of my time on the couch... this is the most I've relaxed in 5 years! I am glad that I'm so symptomatic though, this just means things are going well and I praise God for that :] Derek cleaned the house for me on Sunday, which was a HUGE surprise... and so great to just have it done. He and Owen are being such troopers. Since Owen wakes up about 6:30 every morning, I've been eating breakfast with him, then taking a nap. I set the oven timer for 2 hours, get him snacks, a drink and some nick jr. on the tv and he lets me sleep until the timer goes off. Such a blessing! I know I was sad to think my kids will be 5 years apart, but I can't imagine being this sick and tired with a little one... God sure knew what he was doing ;]

our little secret

We're finally pregnant! 8 weeks now and so excited. We had our first appointment yesterday morning and I was a nervous wreck! I cried when the dr came in so excited for us. She decided to just do the ultrasound to put my mind at ease. I got to see the little teeny baby all healthy and got to see it's heart beating. And we got to hear it... it was so amazing. My Dr said it was ay 175 beats per minute which is nice and strong. She also said she's very pleased with me taking the progesterone and baby asprin during this pregnancy. I have to keep taking these for 6 more weeks. My next appointment is May 3rd where I get to hear the baby's heartbeat again! Thank you every one for the prayers... they're greatly appreciated!
