Well, I think we're far enough along now that I can start giving weekly updates. I don't have my 10 week "bump" picture yet but I'll update with that as soon as we take one! For now I'll update everyone on what's happened since my last post (I know it's been a while).
Two weeks ago, at 8 weeks we had our first ultrasound. Let me tell you, even having already had a child, it is still something to see that tiny little human inside you. Being that I was only 8 weeks at the time there wasn't a whole lot to see, but there's definitely a baby in there. JUST ONE BABY. My mom was convinced, for some reason, that I was having twins. Ha!
Rich and I told my parents that we were expecting pretty early on. I think I was about 4 weeks. My mom is my best friend so I just couldn't help but tell her the news. That, and they were the only family that knew we were trying. To our surprise Rich's mom flew into town last minute last weekend to visit. We were going to wait to tell his family until we made the "big announcement" at 12 weeks, but since she was here in person we couldn't resist. We went out to dinner with his mom and two of his sisters. I told his mom I had something for her and handed her the ultrasound picture. She looked at it for a minute and then said, "Really!?" To my surprise I heard "I knew it!" from Rich's sister, Liz. Apparently a psychic friend of hers told her back in August that someone in her family was pregnant or would be soon, and they had a feeling it was her brother. Well, way to blow our surprise psychic dude.
And that's about all there is, news wise. I'll update soon with our 10 week picture!
