Well we had our first official visit to the doctors today - though I have seen our baby twice already at work (I had to peek with our ultrasound!) - and all seems well. I've lost ten pounds from extreme morning sickness, great I guess for our wedding in October. They finally prescribed me something to help.

We are 9 weeks and some days along. During the ultrasound we saw the baby wiggling it's little arms.

I had to share, of course. ;)

I fell asleep on the couch yesterday when I had Laila over and I woke up to her on the floor, arm around Steven, while they watched TV. So cute. Miles also had a photo op with Laila.. All my dogs are going to love having a kid all their own. And per Eli, we are looking more and more like we are keeping Stella as she and Steve are "so close".

LOL wolfgirl, you're cute :)

First official ultrasound...how exciting!!  UGH I can only imagine how awful that morning sickness would be...I was under the weather today and couldn't keep anything down...fricking starving right now...so I can feel your pain :(  Hopefully that prescription will make things better for you! 

Love the shot of Laila and Miles!  One thing is for sure - all your pooches will have LOTS of practice when it comes to behaving around a small child!  I'm sure you feel at ease about that, and you should.  All your hard work is gonna pay off! 

Enjoying the updates...keep 'em coming!

Oh Jess..

THANK YOU SO MUCH  for sharing your ultrasound photo with us.. SHE ( I betcha she's a she) has your eyes, I can tell!!

We are so thrilled for you and soon you'll be enjoying that famous second trimester and feeling on top of the world..

Love the pics of Little Sir Miles and Laila. Both adorable.. She is just like a Norman Rockwell picture with those missing two front toofies.

You're about to have a full house aren't you!

Hope you manage some rest and start feeling better soon..Ten pounds is a lot for someone as small as you.

much love

Kate and Sofia

Erika I keep meaning to start the baby bump log but always forget. I kinda have one now, but not all that noticeable.

I will gladly keep updating, I love sharing with you guys :)

Miles is a very tolerant Princess, yes. Haha or "drag queen".

Elis mom went to me today "I strongly feel boy!" before we find out maybe I will make a pool for people to bet, haha.

We are still thinking of names if you guys want to add in any! The more to see, the more fun.

Jess I'm happy for ya and best wishes too.

YAY for ultrasounds!!! 

I totally understand your pain with the morning sickness, were you diagnosed as Hyperemesis?  I had that with my last pregnancy, came out of hospital 23lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight 24 hours after giving birth and I had been doing injections of the same medication they give cancer patients for coping with chemo nausea.  The key is small frequent snacky meals, and give in to every craving you have especially if you're able to keep it down, also have something light available on your night table so that before you even sit up in the morning you can put something small in your tummy and then sit up slowly so that the stomach acids don't create a wave in your stomach.

Good luck.

I have to share something that a friend of mine did when they found out what their baby's gender, they had the tech write down the gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope, which they took to a local baker and had a cake made to represent the gender of the baby.  Only the baker knew what the interior colour of the cake was, which was hidden with all of the icing and gender neutral decorating.

That night they invited their family over for cake and coffee, and they found out that they were having a girl all together as they took the first slice of cake.

I like that cake idea!  That's a really special way to find out, with the whole family there.  Very nice :)

How exciting Jes, Congratulations!!!

 

I remember the morning sickness well and I feel sorry for you on that one LOL. Hopefully you will pass the hump soon on that and start to feel better. Don't worry the weight will come lol. Isn't that something how the littlest things will set you off, It's like your senses are on overload and the smells of things are magnified! I couldn't even brush my teeth without throwing up (kinda defeated the purpose lol) In fact I remember if someone even said Teriyaki it would make me run for the bathroom.

OOOOooo cake.. what a great idea S.P. Let's do cake!!

Hey Jess.. I'm serious about the cyber-shower idea... all you have to do is register somewhere..like BabysRus.. Target, Nordstroms... etc.. they take your info..

All WE have to do is log on... find out what it is that's on your wish list and order it..

No address is needed from you, they take care of all of that with a special number..or a code or something really techy like that. 

The only thing you need to do, is direct us to the proper link.. and voila....

Other wise you're gunna get a hundred and three boxes of baby wipes!! LOL

No I am blessed I don't have that condition. I'm so sorry you had to struggle with it! My body is super sensitive and I've always been prone to GI issues. I shouldve seen this coming, lol.

Des, what gets me is just food and now I can't touch toast, crackers or ginger ale without gagging. I have good days (and more to come I'm hoping!) and I eat as much as I can. I joke it took me getting pregnant to drop those last 10 pounds ;)

Elis cousin did the cake idea and it is very cute. I imagine we will just call around and announce it without much flare. Maybe we will do the cake too, you never know.

Kate.. You do not have to get me anything but the day I register I will share the info with you and whomever. I appreciate it and mostly I just love being able to share it all with you guys.

Next appointment is in 4 weeks!
