Well, for anyone that hasn't heard yet, we are having a baby! I am due June 19, 2011, and we are so excited! Here is a timeline of the events:
October 16th - Positive pregnancy test!
We also decided to tell our parents right away since we had no idea what we were doing. We called my parents that night and got them talking about some of their upcoming vacations. I told them I had a great idea for a vacation spot, and I got them both on the phone at the same time so I could tell them both. I told them that they could come to our house in June to meet our baby, and they were way excited.
October 17th - We told Chris's parents the good news this night. We had a birthday card for her that was addressed to Grandma. Here is what the inside looked like (the pictures were in there too):
It took them a minute to figure out what it meant, but then they were really excited too!
November 11 - First prenatal appointment . They took lots of blood, ask lots of questions, and invited me back for an ultrasound on the 18th.
November 18 - First Ultrasound! The baby was perfect. The ultrasound tech measured and said that the baby was right on track at 9 weeks , 4 days. The little baby was moving its little arms and legs like crazy! I think it was excited to see us. We saw the little heartbeat and heard it too. It measured at 171 bpm which is right where it should be. Here is one of the ultrasound pictures.
Chris think our baby looks like a mouse. I'm afraid he's right.
November 23rd - We finally told everyone else that we were having baby. My sisters were in town on their way down to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving, and Chris's brother and sister in law were in town as well. We decided to get together for dinner at a chinese restaurant we all really like. We decided to secretly order custom made fortune cookies with fortunes that annouced our pregnancy. Chris went and talked to the owner of the store, and he agreed to give us our fortunes cookies after our meal instead of the ones they usually give out. We got there, and the owner was totally cool and didn't ruin our secret at all. He's sneaky! He brought the cookies out and everyone started opening them. Here is what they looked like.
