13 1/2 weeks...

The good news is that Leo and I are pregnant!! I am currently 13 weeks and a half and counting. The baby is due date is Feb. 20 or 21, 2009.

So I had this long elaborate blog describing our journey to this point and then it was deleted...here is the abridged version.

We found out on July 18th after two pregnancy tests. The first fell in the toilet and I thought it was defective.

Week 9 was the first ultrasound which was AMAZING!!! This is the time we felt it was real. The baby was shaking its head and wiggling its body. Leo and I were on cloud nine for the rest of the day.

We told our family the weekend of Aug 8th. They were so excited and it was nice to finally tell them after holding it in for 12 weeks.

I am now almost 14 weeks and I'm feeling great. The worst weeks were week 6-8th. I was nauseas, hungry, and queasy. All I could eat was Kix cereal, peanut butter sandwiches and fruit.

So here is a recap:
13 and 1/2 weeks
Due date Feb 20 or 21
I have gained 1 pound
Still running/walking

I am going to try to keep you posted on a bi-weekly basis.
