So I went to my first OB appointment last friday on the 24th! Josh couldn't go with me (stupid Vectren), so my mom went! I got an ultrasound, lab work, yada yada. I was so excited i could hardly sleep the night before! When i got my ultrasound done, technically i was suppose to be almost 10 weeks along. But once she got going she asked me, "are your periods regular?" I said "dang it, i'm not as far along as i thought am i??" she laughed and said that she didn't think so. So when i saw the doctor I found out that I'm only 7 weeks! So my first blog on here, i must have just been pregnant! :) But being 8 weeks this week explains why the morning sickness has kicked in full gear! I have been such a party pooper lately! Between being tired and nauseated, this isn't much fun right now!! I hear that I'll feel better in a few weeks and I'm ready for that! Here is my first ultrasound picture!!

As you can see, it looks like he/she is playing peek-a-boo!! I did get to hear the hearbeat and it was going strong and was the most precious sound i've ever heard! When she turned it on, I didn't cry, but i just went "awwwwww!" I can't wait to see how he/she has grown in a few weeks! I get to go back for another ultrasound on May 27th!! The doctor says i'll see a baby then!! :)

Here is my 8 week picture!! I feel like I'm already pooching but they say that I'm just bloated!! Which to me, I'd rather be pooching!! hahaha.
I have a few other pictures to upload of a pregnancy journal i got and a onsie that my mom bought the lil one, but my computer is being very stubborn tonight, so i'll try it next week!! See you guys next week!!
Love, Layne!

Baby on the way!!

Hey you guys! As you know if you're getting on here, Josh and I found out that we were going to have a baby. For about a week now I have been taking pregnancy test after pregnancy test. And with my luck i was getting faint positive, followed by a negative. Then i would get a faint positive again and then get another negative. Needless to say after a week of this i was turning into a freak show! I told Josh that i felt like i could pee on a stick every two hours! It was driving me crazy! So needless to say, I begged the dr's office for the blood work to ease my mind and it came back positive! We are so excited! We went out to celebrate last night. I was celebrating the pregnancy and he was celebrating the fact that no more money had to be spent on pregnancy tests!! (those do get expensive, i'll agree with him there!). I know that they say that they will go by your last period, and if that's the case, I'll be 7 weeks already on Sunday! That's why i was freaking out! But I actually feel pretty well. No sickness, and I don't think i'm moody (you might check with josh on that). The only symptoms I have at all is that I am tired alot (have been for a couple of weeks), and then the only symptom that is driving me crazy is that my mouth is sooooo dry all the time!! My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth 24/7! I am constantly eating ice chips! But i got online b/c i had never heard of that being a symptom before and sure enough it is. I have a dr's appointment with an ultrasound on April 24th! I think that's late for my first appointment, but i'm probably impatient too! So after I get the official everything from the doctors office i'll start taking weekly pictures of my growing belly and post them on here and update you guys on any new stuff going on! I want to know how far along i am before i start posting pictures of my belly, b/c at this stage right now i just feel fat and bloated! Thank you guys for all the congrats!! And I will post an update from the dr's visit to let you guys know how mommy and baby are doing! Just pray for a healthy pregnancy for us!
