The Heartbeat of a Peanut

Today I heard it. I heard by little ones heartbeat for the first time. Not only did I hear it, but I saw it beating. It was amazing.
Yes, this means that I'm pregnant. I've known since August 18th, but was waiting until I officially went to the doctor to announce it on here. I knew after today I wouldn't be able to contain my little secret anymore. Some people know....I probably told more people then I think. Oh well, such happy news needs to be shared.
Today made it real though.Yes, I took four pregnancy tests. Yes, I've been sick with nausea and throwing up. Yes, I feel like I just ran a marathon from one coast to the next. Yes, I could fall asleep at my desk and wake up and still take another nap. AND yes, my breast feel like someone used them as a punching bag. But today, made it real.
Brady and I are over the moon about this baby. We couldn't be more excited.
Welcome to the blog world little one....Brady and I call it Peanut....for now.

So happy for you! What great bad feelings to have! I hope you start to feel better soon...

That's exciting. Can't wait to follow your story!

I'm so excited for you both. I totally felt all of that crap too.

Don't worry. The bad stuff will soon fade away and then you'll move on to stressing about what kind of mattress to purchase and if a $150 high chair that you absoutely love is too expensive. It's awesome.
