I did it! After about 15 weeks of being repulsed by the sight, smell, and taste of chicken, I finally ate some last night. I decided to face my aversion and made some BBQ chicken in the crock pot and it was delicious! We decided to take a picture of the moment...
I have been grappling with whether or not to do "belly pictures" throughout the pregnancy. I figured I might as well, I will enjoy having them later in life. So here is the first one, I am exactly 14 weeks here. It is not much of a bump, but there is a little one there.

Oh summer....

Oh boy, it;s HOT!! I haven't been leaving the house much. It just really wears me out. We went to Montgomery this past weekend and it was so nice to be around the whole family. Of course all the talk revolved around the baby. Everyone is so excited and it really makes us that much more excited. I have finally started gaining weight (NEVER said that before...) and have been working hard to eat well. Starting today, at 14 weeks,  I have entered the window of when first time pregnancies feel the baby move. My book says the average is more around 18 weeks though. I am really excited for that, but have no clue what to look for.

I have been working on getting the room cleaned out for the nursery. I am having to combine 2 closets and that has proved to be quite a task, as both closets were full of junk. This is as far as I have made it....

This is the almost empty closet in the baby's room...

and the almost full closet in the guest room.
Not too bad right? Well, these are the rooms. You can see where all the junk is now. The only question is what in the world I am going to do with it all?!?

YAY!! This picture is about a month ago, but it is the only one we have so far.
I took the pregnancy test on April 16th. When we went to the doctor they tried a dating ultrasound, but couldn't see anything. I kept going back for bloodwork and we tried another ultrasound every week. Finally, we got this one at 8 weeks. The secret is out now and I am just about out of the first trimester!
