Fry in the Fryer

That's right. Dan and I are going to have a baby! This isn't news to some special select few but to those who don't know....YA! We debated on when to make our pregnancy public. I was getting too impatient. I wanted to tell everyone I saw but then they would think I'm some crazy lady. So Dan and I talked and thought 12 weeks is a good amount of time. Tomorrow is 12 weeks and we have our 2nd appointment this Thursday. We'll get to see the baby again! 
Our awesome family has kept this exciting news for almost 2 months now. We found out we were pregnant 2 days before we were leaving for Christmas break. We were spending almost 2 weeks with my family. 11 people in one house, there was no way I'd be able to keep that secret from them. So we put a plan together with the help of some awesome friends of ours. This is what we gave our family for Christmas.
Thank you Pinterest
We put it in a frame and wrote "Guess What" at the bottom. Long story short, both sides of the family shared our joy. 
Like I said we have another appointment on Thursday (hopefully it will provide more pictures) but we do want to share the 8 week pictures we have.

Strong Heartbeat
Last thing, I saw this girls blog on Pinterest and she has this list of things for each week of pregnancy. They are the same questions each week but obviously the answers can change each week. I wish I would have started this sooner but better late than never. (I know, long post but we're just so excited)

How far along? 11 Weeks, 6 Days
Total weight gain/loss: Last time I checked it was only a pound but that’s probably changed.
Maternity clothes? Just a skirt that is still too big for me.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: In the late afternoon I get pretty tired, but sleep great at night still.
Best moment this week: Telling a girl I share a couple classes with I'm pregnant. She got really excited.
Have you told family and friends: Family found out a long time ago. Friends will find out now.
Miss Anything? Runny eggs!!!
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Anything Mexican; the spicier the better. Salad.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Have you started to show yet: A little bump but it just looks like I’m getting fat.
Gender prediction: I think it’s a boy.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy. When I get tired I get moody but that’s normal even without pregnancy.
Weekly Wisdom: Stay active as much as possible.
Looking forward to: Our next appointment on Thursday. We’ll get to see the baby again. J
