Jason and I had our 12week appointment this past Friday. The Doctor said that everything looked good and then we finally got to hear the heartbeat! It was pretty amazing. Jason never fails to make me laugh when we are in the OBs office! While Dr. Damore had the doppler on my belly, Jason had to say..."Wow, it sounds pretty windy in there!" He's too funny, and that's why I love him! I cannot explain the feelings when you hear your baby's heartbeat for the first time! So, everyone is asking...there was only ONE heartbeat??? Well, yes...only one. BUT...the doctor said that even if there were two (or three, let's hope not!) that she would only hear one, because the baby is so small that it would be pretty difficult to decipher if it was only one beat or two. So, we wait again! But, wednesday is our first ultrasound...two days!!! We are so excited, and a little nervous. Working where I work, it's hard not to be nervous...I know too much! But, I cannot wait to see our little baby for the first time. I will update on Wednesday...with pictures!!!

So, just an update on how things are going! I've been sick, and some days are good, some not so good! I'm hoping this only lasts another two weeks, and then I will be feeling better...hopefully! In two weeks, we also get to go to the doctor and have our first ultrasound! YEAH! We are so excited! My mom still thinks it's twins, I just think it's one...but I'm leaning towards a girl, right now anyway! All I want to eat is fruit! I also am starting to show...already! I know, everyone says...no, you're just bloated or you can't be showing yet...well tell that to the baby, cause when I show people, they say...wow, you are showing! Crazy!
Also, we have started calling the baby Cougar, until we know what it is...why??? Well, Jason thinks Cougar is a tough name, and we were listening to a John Cougar Mellencamp song and he asked if we could have part of the baby's name be cougar...I immediatley said NO! He then said if we did, when it grows up and plays golf....it could be the Cougar against the Tiger!!! My husband is crazy! Anyways, as a result, the baby is Cougar, until we know what it is and we give it a name. Although, Jason still is trying to convince me to have the middle name be Cougar if it's a boy...oh man! I'll update again for sure in two weeks after the ultrasound!
