sound? check.

listening for baby.jpg

So we hit our first big milestone today: We got to hear the babys heartbeat for the first time! It was 160 bpm, for those of you keeping track at home. In related Dr. appointment news, jen had actually lost 7 pounds since her previous visit, but we were told that that wasnt out of the ordinary. A lot of it had to do with how sick she had been for the last several weeks.

dance, baby!

its important that i let everyone know right upfront, this isnt jen. I stumbled across (and by “stumbled” i mean i did a search for pregnant dancing on you tube) and found these today. Theyre catchy. i dont know how or why, but they are. As a matter of fact, I almost titled this post “the coolest, creepiest, most bizarre, awesomest, oddly intriguing, i cant believe im watching this, but then i again i cant believe someone filmed these, videos ever.” But i thought “dance, baby!” sounded wittier. This chick does have mad skills, though. holla.

1 trimester down, 2 more to go…

well, no news is good news. jen has been feeling pretty good lately, and although im jinxing her as i write this, things really seem to be better for her. We have our next Dr. appointment in couple of days. We had a good holiday, and enjoyed getting to see our families. We also found out that one of my relatives is 4 weeks along with her first baby also. If you read one of my earlier posts about parenthood being the worlds 2nd oldest pyramid scheme, this means weve got one person under us now in the pyramid. Jen is happy because this means she has someone to be pregnant with.

giving thanks for a baby and for ric ocasek



So here we are at Thanksgiving, and who has more to be thankful for than us? We finally got pregnant this year. It was a long journey, with a lot of let downs along the way. We must have spent 900$ on home pregnancy tests, with one after another coming up negative. After a year of trying, we were about to give up. It may sound cliche, but the greatest day of my life was the morning Jen woke me up to let me know that we were having a baby. Now were building a family, from scratch. How cool is that? So this Thanksgiving, more than any other, I truly have a lot to be thankful for. Oh- im also thankful that the Cars finally released a live CD. šŸ˜‰

1st trimester almost over.. (the return of jen)

Remeber me? im the one having this baby. I don’t think anyone is happier than meĀ that the yucky 1st trimester is almost over, not even John.Ā  I am really hoping that when I’m aroundĀ 13-14 weeks I will start to get some of my energy and appetite back likeĀ like people have been telling me.Ā I remember at about 7 or 8 weeks along I was thinking that I never want to forget how I feel,Ā  so that after I give birth I won’t want to have another child. TheĀ nausea and lack of energy has beenĀ so awful. At this point,Ā I’m just hoping I have twins so I only have to go through thisĀ  once. Either way I’ll be happy,Ā as the baby(ies) are just healthy and happy.
