DNA test

Today I went in for a special blood test. It’s checks the baby’s DNA and looks for whether the baby has any of the trisomy disorders (ex: Down’s Syndrome). In addition to this, it can also tell you the gender of the baby. I’ll admit I’m scared to death, but the idea of knowing this type of information (and it’s pretty accurate) by the time I’m 13-14 weeks pregnant makes it seem worth it. We should get the results back in 7-10 days. Finger crossed for a healthy baby!

10 weeks

Today we went for another check-up on the baby. I’ve still been feeling pretty icky (pretty much like I’m going to throw up 24/7), but my hope was that this meant the pregnancy was strong and that the baby was ok!

Thankfully baby was busy moving around, right on track growth wise, and had a strong heartbeat right where it should be!

James’ birthday

For James’ birthday the only thing he wanted was to go out for “baby steak” at Fuji and bring some of our friends with us! Being the wonderful wife I am, I invited the Feinstein’s to go with us and my Mom came as well!

It was a fun time, all the kids behaved really well, and afterwards we went to Dairy Queen for some birthday dessert!

9 weeks

Even though I’m only nine weeks pregnant, I’ve already got a decent sized baby bump!

No, I’m not huge or anything, but many pregnant women aren’t even showing at 9 weeks and for me it seems like my bump is pretty big for nine weeks!

As for symptoms, I’m super tired and feel like I’m going to throw up pretty much all day long and even in the middle of the night if I wake up. Fun, fun stuff!

First picture

Today we went to our new Obgyn for the first time to get checked out. Thankfully they did an ultrasound and we were able to see little Baby Jones for the first time!!

Granted the little one is just a blob right now, but it brought tears to my eyes to see that the little one really did exist and had a heartbeat! They are estimating that I’m 8 weeks 4 days pregnant and that we’re due the middle of August!!

The funny thing is that while we were sitting in the waiting room our babysitter texted us that Reagan told her that “There is something in her Mommy’s uterus, but that it’s a secret.” She wanted to know if there was something we hadn’t told her yet. So I guess the cat is out of the bag about me being pregnant to at least some people outside our family!
