The Due Date

Waiting for our first doctor's appoint was pure torture...The day after my positive pregnancy test I called to make an appointment and much to my surprise they scheduled it for almost a month later!

A quick Google search (I do this a lot lately) told me that this was completely normal...the first appointment is usually 8-12 weeks because earlier than that and you might not be able to see the heartbeat.

AJ and I decided that we would wait to tell our family till after our first appointment, so those 3 1/2 weeks were definitely tough.

Being around our families and not saying anything was nearly impossible, but I am proud to say we did it :)

And finally on August 22nd the moment we had been waiting for we got to see the most incredible site we have ever seen...

I can't put into words how incredible it was to see that little heartbeat on the screen. Equal parts relief and amazement greeted us as we immediately saw sweet Billy Blob Thornton up on the screen and that little flicker of it's heart.

We had a general idea of the due date (I was guessing anywhere between April 1st and April 9th) but when the sonogram tech measured she said our due date looked to be April 7th..which is the PERFECT day if you ask me :)
