I am feeling a heck of a lot better since last week - Thank God! I seem to be thirsty all the time...like..ALL THE TIME! That is about all the updates I have for you this week - My next appointment is January 7th.

Well, here it is - what we have all been waiting for! To be able to hear the tiny creation inside my belly! This was something truly amazing - we weren't at all prepared for how quickly the nurse came in and just found the heartbeat. We were expecting a whole machine and all the works...guess its not really like the movies! haha - The "machine" was just a little wand connected to a small handheld contraption. And if you were wondering - the wand was placed on my belly...not somewhere else like I have read and been told....THANK GOD! ;)
The video isn't really much to watch - Ryan was trying to record the heartbeat on his phone and our camera so there really isn't much to see except some of my belly...a little shot of me...then my gown...he was a little preoccupied. But here it is!!! Enjoy :)

Okay - I thought I would give Ryan a shout out since he has been putting up with my crap for the past few days...well, really for the past 4 years! haha
Tomorrow at 9am I will be going to my first appointment!! Ryan and I will hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time and we could not be more excited. I wish I felt better, but it is what it is. So tomorrow I am hoping to have enough time between coming home from work and Bible study to post some pics and hopefully a video. YAY!!! See you all then! oh, please pray that my body gets some healing!!

Okay everyone - here is our latest video from us telling our family we are having a baby!! This is Ryan's dad and Aunt Karen...We acted like we were taking a picture - here it is:
So...yeah....There ya go. Not exactly the reaction we would have liked but I guess everyone has to process it in their own way.....I don't have much else to say with this blog...sorry.

At lunch, Ryan had the bright idea to act like he was looking for some picture on our camera so he could get the video started. At that point this is where the video starts:
Yup...she's excited! And can't wait for us to tell her sister and mom (our Aunt Becky and Grandma Caylor). They don't know yet so....shhh!!!! We plan on telling them in a couple weeks.
We also have yet to tell our other Aunt and Ryan's dad. So...shhh!!! We will tell them when we are ready!!

In the first video we acted like we were taking a picture so we could get the video started. Ryan was completely unaware of what was going on! Guys are great at not paying attention! haha - The build up is to have a reason to whip out a card a friend of mine made for me to help tell Ryan the news. Ryan was under the impression that I was not pregnant and that we had another month of "trying" ahead of us. The card is a "sympathy" card for that reason. Check out how long it takes Ryan to figure things out....
Pretty good, huh?? Did you notice all of the people in the restaraunt clapping for us?!? It was great!
This second video is us telling my family. I had, again, lied to all of them and told them I wasn't pregnant. I was "so bummed out" about it I just wanted to get together with the family. (haha) So we went bowling. Ryan was "recording me getting a strike" when in all actuality he was just getting the video ready. The shirt I have on says, "Baby On Board" and has a sparkly heart on my belly. Listen to my sister...she is in utter disbelief!
