My 1st Doctor's Appointment!!

Good morning!! So I've known I was preggo for about 2 weeks now. The shock has worn off and the anxiousness & excitement has set in. Today I will go to my first doctor's appointment. I can't wait! I am ready to find out exactly how far along I am and get my due date. Based on my last period, I am about 8 weeks or so...but I could be wrong. We will see! I have been up and ready for a couple of hours now...I'm just waiting on Steve to come home from work so we can go together.

I have been doing lots of the typical "newly pregnant" stuff.... I've joined the website "Babycenter" and started reading some of the pregnancy books. My friend Jessica gave me one of hers that goes by week by week. It is very informative. My friend Brittany bought me one and mailed it to me. I just got it yesterday. It is called "The Everything Pregnancy Book" is very neat and easy to read. There is even a short Dad section at the end of each chapter that I'm hoping I can get Steve to read.

I've also (of course) been thinking about names....I started a word document of names I like for boys and for girls....I have already had to delete and add a few based on Steve's opinion. I seriously didn't think that it would be hard for us to pick out names, but Steve is giving more input about it than I thought he would. I guess that is good though...we want our child's name to be something that we both love.

I've been lucky so far not to have had any morning sickness. I've just been a little lightheaded a couple of mornings and I've been super tired & drained. I took a nap every day last week!! That is SO not like me!! Oh well, everyone tells me to just enjoy the sleep while I can so that is what I am going to do. It's going to be an amazing journey & I'm very excited about sharing my thoughts and feelings on this blog. I'll update when I hear from the doctor today!!
