On another note, in case any of you men out there were wondering, this is how you give your pregnant wife a heart attack! This is where I find J today when I look out the window! Great, just what we need are more Dr's and hospitals. Luckily he finished without a scratch and I was very happy to see him climb down that ladder for the last time!

Our little raspberry is growing right along and it's heart rate was up to 162 bpm. It is actually growing ahead by 3 days which puts me at 8w4d today. I can't believe we are this far already. It feels so much more meaty to be able to say 8 or 9 weeks, it is actually becoming real! I'm a little worried that our baby is growing so big so fast, although he is still so small. Jimmy weighed over 9lbs when he was born and this scares me to death. I'm not sure if the husband's weight when born has anything to do with how big your baby will be but It's on the list to ask the Dr. If we do have a huge baby it's all Jimmy's fault! It definitely has nothing to do with those cheeseburgers I've been craving!
I swear I already have a little baby bump. I had a head start with IVF on the weight gain but I have a feeling I'm going to be showing pretty early. I'll take our 1st baby bump pic this week so you can see what I'm talking about.
Here is a pic of our little bean as of Friday. We are so in love!

We had our 1st appt at the ob-gyn this AM and all is well. We saw the baby again via ultrasound and it's little heart was beating. We have another u/s at the fertility clinic on Friday when they will measure the heart rate and we will be able to see the little raspberry in more detail. I love having all of these appts so I can keep an eye on this little bean and make sure it is growing right on track!
This weekend my parents spent the night on Friday and brought us a little package of fun baby stuff, a maternity shirt and a bella band. On Sat my mom and I went shopping and my dad and Jimmy went to The Man Store (Home Depot) and looked at a few things for the house. On Sat. night we went over to our friends Mark and Janna's house with Morgan & Nicole and the precious girls, Sophie and Ella. They are just the sweetest little things and getting so big! Here are a few pics of the little rascals!
