We're havin a BABY!!!

Today we went to our first doctor's appointment to see Baby Bickston! I am about 8 weeks, so when we went we got to see our baby for the first time!

Let's rewind 3 weeks ago to when I first found out I was pregnant. I found out Sunday June 5th, the day after school was out. I just had a "feeling", so I went and bought a test. I took it not really thinking anything. After a minute, I took a look and saw a positive test. I was in SHOCK! We were not trying yet, so I was not expecting a positive. I showed it to Matt, who did NOT believe me! So, I took another..He STILL didn't believe it. So, I went to the store to get the digital kind. A few minutes later, we saw this..

He believed after that! :) We were in shock for a couple of days. It's like, you go so long wondering if you really can get pregnant and then one are! It has been pretty hard keeping it a secret, more so for Matt than me. Mainly because he has to go to work everyday and not say anything! Poor thing, was so excited he wanted to tell EVERYONE!

So- fast forward to today. We got to see our precious little baby! I am measuring at 7 weeks and 2 days. To me, it looks like a little peanut! The most wonderful sound in the entire world was his/her heartbeat. It was 144 bpm. I cannot wait for what the rest of the pregnancy holds!

Here is Baby Bickston's sonogram from today!

Dear baby,

Even though you are so small, your daddy and I already love you so much! We talk about you ALL the time and wonder what you are going to look like and be like. I cannot wait to see you again and hear your precious little heartbeat! You are such a little miracle.

Love, Mommy
