Husband/Partner Felt Baby Move for the First Time
We were laying in bed and he'd just put his hand on my tummy. I thought he moved his palm, but he suddenly looked at me and said did you feel that? I said yeah, did you move your hand and he said no, the baby kicked me! He was vey excited and waited for another one, but of course that didn't happen lol. This morning he said he felt something again, but I didn't feel it this time. Can't believe it happened already. :)

Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
Ok so technically this wasn't the first time, but this was the first very distinctive pop. I was sitting on the couch with Chad drinking coffee and felt 4 pops at my belly button. Before this I've been feeling very light tickles or what feels like muscle twitches for about two weeks.

Prental Tests: Glucose Challenge Test
Because I'm over weight I had to have an early glucose test. I wasnt worried at all and of course passed. Hopefully we'll have the same result in several weeks.

On January 2, 2018 at 11 weeks 4 days pregnant
Graduation Day
We graduated from the fertility clinic this morning. It's bitter sweet because I won't see baby again till 20 weeks, but it's nice to just have a normal pregnancy now and not have to take shots anymore!

On December 30, 2017 at 11 weeks 1 day pregnant
Found Heartbeat at Home
Chad got me a fetal heart monitor for Christmas and it took me almost a week, but I finally found it, but only for a second. When I called him in, I couldn't find it again. The next day I find it faster and he was able to listen. :)

On December 27, 2017 at 10 weeks 5 days pregnant
