...goodbye 1st trimester...

If you would of told us at three weeks that the first trimester would fly by, we would have been non-believers. Boy, would we had been proved wrong. It is hard to imagine that our precious miracle is about the size of a lemon and all major organs are in place and functioning.
We have been to two very successful doctor's appointments. At the first visit, we had an ultrasound where we were able to see the baby and hear the babies heartbeat at 169 bpm. Our due date was confirmed for April 27, 2013. The second visit was a checkup for me. Luckily, we were able to hear the babies heartbeat again at 162 bpm. Cory is preparing for a girl with the high heartbeat - his niece already holds his heart in her hands, another girl in his opinion, means double trouble!
As far as my belly is concerned, a little bump is beginning to show. I am not yet in maternity clothes, but am well on my way. 
In the mean time, please continue to pray for constant protection and a healthy pregnancy for Mom, Dad and baby-to-be.

...& then there were THREE...

Cory and I are extremely thrilled to announce our wonderful baby news.
With this important and exciting time in our lives, we decided to direct our excitement, anxiety, and planning into a blogging outlet by sharing our experiences with friends and family. We thought this would be a great way to keep everyone in touch and updated about all that is going on.  We invite you to join as we celebrate the many milestones of pregnancy.
