So I have read that the first movement I should feel will be something like butterflies in my stomach. Well I am not 100% positive but I think I felt the butterflies yesterday!!!

I had arrived at work and was headed into my daily 9:00am meeting and I had a seat in my normal chair. I was waiting for the meeting to start and all of the sudden the strangest feeling happened...and then again just seconds later. It felt like I had just gone over that fun hill on Rhorer Road at 50mph. If your not from Bloomington you don't know what that means but I am sure you can imagine. It did feel like a little flutter of butterfly wings in my stomach, it hasn't happened since though and now all I can think about is feeling it again.

I guess our little bean was making itself comfortable! I can't wait for Adam to be able to feel it in a few more weeks!!

1st Belly Picture!! 10 1/2 Weeks

A few people have been asking for belly pics to see if I am showing. Well here you go...not my favorite picture I have ever taken. Please don't mind the P.J.'s!!!! As you can see Jada was very interested in the picture as well. Jada has already become quite protective of this baby, I am not sure how she knows but she does.

I am quite amazed how pregnant I feel and look already. I guess when you are as short as I am and have no torso like I do there is no where for it to go but out.

Adam and I would like to wish my little sister a very happy birthday today!! She is really starting to make me feel old, I can't believe Allie is twenty-two already and will be graduating from college in May. It feels like yesterday we were celebrating her 6th birthday.

I hope you have a great day and a fabulous birthday Allie!!!!!!!

We love you!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I am sure most of you already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. As most of you know this holds a special place in my heart due to my mom passing away from the disease. Now that I am going to be a mother, my own mom has been on my mind a lot more lately. There are so many questions I would love to ask her and things I would love to share. I really wish she was here to share in the joy of being a grandma, she would have been so great at it. I do feel very lucky that I had my mom as long as I did because she taught me a lot about the kind of mom I want to be. I know my mom will live on in the many memories and stories I will be able to share with my children!!!

The main point of my blog today is to remind every mom, daughter, sister, and aunt to get yearly check-ups, mammograms and do self-exams. Every minute 3 women are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Your Mother Is Always With You

Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside your laughter. She's crystallized in every tear drop...
She's the place you came from,your first home.. She's the map you follow with every step that you take.
She's your first love and your first heartbreak....and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space...Not even death....will ever separate you from your mother....
You carry her inside of you....

I love you mom!!!

Very Exciting Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As many of you know, Adam and I had our first ultrasound yesterday. It was by far the best thing I have ever seen and heard!!! The little flicker of the heartbeat was amazing and the sound was so strong and loud. Adam and I looked at each other in amazement. We were able to see many diffrent views of the baby and even got to see he/she move their head around. The heartbeat was 175 beats per minute which is normal.

According to the ultrasound they moved my due date up by 2 days, it is now May 8, 2009. We should be able to find out the sex around week 20 which should be right before Christmas. We can't wait to find out if we will be welcoming a little boy or a little gir!!
