We’re Pregnant!

First Ultrasound at 10 Weeks

It’s official: we’re expecting!

I’m so glad that we can FINALLY share our exciting news! We’re going to have a baby! Our first; we just couldn’t be happier right now. :)

Though we found out at the end of October, we kept the baby news under wraps until we had a chance to hear a heartbeat and see the baby at our first ultrasound. We had that appointment on December 1, and everything so far is perfect! We’re near the end of our first trimester now, and our due date is June 29, 2011.

The gender doesn’t matter to either of us, but for some reason I’ve just had this feeling that it’s going to be a girl since around 5 weeks. We do plan to find out the gender at our mid-February appointment so we’ll be sure to keep you posted! Speaking of keeping everyone posted, we’re started up a Baby page of the site so that we can keep everyone updated on baby news in one place. Not a lot there right now, but I’m sure there will be plenty more to share as the adventure unfolds. :)

As this is our first child and we’re going to be brand new parents without a clue, we’ve been doing a lot of research. As we go, I plan to share the books I read and review them, products I’m trying, and other advice I pick up along the way… but I’d also love feedback and recommendations! We’ve started collecting a list of items to keep a handle on the overwhelming task of picking out baby products. Who knew it was so complicated?!

Thanks for your love and support! And be sure to head over to see the new baby geeky soap I released after the big announcement this week – they’re so cute!
