Answers to your questions!

Thank you all so much for the support and congratulations after my last post! My intention is not for my blog to turn into a pregnancy-talk-only blog, but the next few posts will be mostly bringing everyone up to speed on the pregnancy happenings of the last couple months.

I'm going to start off by answering some of the many questions that I've been asked since our big announcement. Which, by the way, it has been so much fun telling people our news. I had no idea it would be this exciting *grin*!

If you still have questions after this post, please don't hesitate to leave them for me in the comments.

Q - When are you due?

A - My official due date is February 24th, 2010.

Q - How far along are you?

A - I posted a ticker so that you (and I!) can keep track of my progress. Today, I am 10 weeks and 5 days.

Q - Have you heard a heartbeat yet?

A - Yes! We've actually had 3 ultrasounds so far (6 weeks, 8 weeks, and 10 weeks), and have heard the heartbeat at each one.

Q - How many babies are you carrying?

A - Just one! The number has been confirmed 3 times!

Q - Do you want to find out if it's a boy or a girl?

A - Chris and I are still discussing this, but most likely we will try to find out.

Q - How have you been feeling?

A - Great for the most part! I have had a bit of nausea early in the morning and late at night some days, but nothing too bad. Compared to how I felt on some of the fertility meds we used, this feels like a walk in the park so far!

Q - Did you think you were pregnant before your blood test actually confirmed it?

A - I didn't have a strong feeling one way or the other. My fertility meds made me feel so confused all the time that I couldn't read my own body very well.

Q - Will you go back to work after the baby is born?

A - Chris and I are still working on this. As of right now, I will probably go back for at least a little while.

Q - Are you going to get a new car?

A - We're going to have to get something different! I currently drive a two-seater, so it's obviously not baby-seat friendly. I totally don't care though... I would happily drive a mini-van if it means looking in the review mirror and seeing my baby (and I know this horrifies some of my friends)!

Q - Are you still seeing your doctor at your fertility clinic?

A - No. As of last week, I officially graduated to a regular OB! My first appointment with my new doctor is August 11.

Q - Have you had any complications?

A - Amazingly, there have been zero complications so far! I'm almost having a hard time believing it!

Q - Have you gained any weight yet?

A - No, but I can tell that my belly is starting to pooch just a little. The scales are holding steady though.

Q - Will you post belly pics?

A - I don't know yet. It depends on if I look like a barge or if I look like a beautiful pregnant woman.

Whew... I think that about covers it for now. In a few days, I'll post some of our ultrasound pictures!

Oooh I can't wait for the ultrasound pics! This is just so exciting!

Okay, just for the record, I will still be your friend even if you get a stink'n minivan *sigh*...We will just take my car unless baby is on board...neither my car nor my driving are baby/car seat friendy.

First of all, don't be knockin the mini van! =P They are really quite convenient. Secondly, I really hope you do decide to post belly pics. You will probably feel like you look like a barge, we will think you look like a beautiful pregnant woman.
