It's a bean!

Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can post about this. :) We got to see our first picture of our little one this week! Matt was so cute at the appointment. When they were doing the ultrasound and the sonogram showed up on the screen, Matt exclaimed, "Look, there it is! It's a bean! I can see its heart!" He was so excited to actually see it. He is convinced it's a boy, of course, and wants to name it Ethan.

I am used to my doctor explaining everything she does before she does it, but since I had to change doctors because I moved, these ones are not quite the same. They just did their stuff without even telling me what was going on, so I was completely oblivious that there was anything on the screen until Matt started getting excited.

Anyway, they said everything was looking good. I have been feeling pretty good too. I've been a little more tired than normal, and I'm trying to get used to eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day because I'm finding that if I eat too much (like even my normal-sized meals before) I feel sick and if I get hungry I feel sick. But other than that, I'm really grateful that I haven't been super sick.

We are excited for Christmas. We even got our little one a cute little stocking! And I think we figured out how to make it work with all the families. Merry Christmas to all!

OOOper Congrats. It appears to be the best looking, cleverest, smartest, most well behaved bean ever!

Congratulations!! Beans are so much fun. It's the kid part that is a little more challenging! :) Super excited for you. I'm thinking it's a boy too. Glad you are feeling good.
