Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
Chrissy came over after I went to Lisa's for a huge dinner and we smoked. I was sitting on a bar stool really hunched over with terrible posture. I think a mixture of my posture and lots of food in there made baby squished. I felt this little swish over by my left hip. Not next to it, still in my uterus, but definitely the left side of my uterus. It felt like a fish tail swishing against my uterus, but a little firmer than that. i know it wasn't gas. :)

Heard Baby's Heartbeat for the First Time
Laid down on the bed and midwife applied doppler and goo. It took her a bit to find the heartbeat. We heard mine quite clearly and I thought a couple times i heard the faintest quick beat of the baby, but we couldn't find it. then we heard a big whooshing sound, which was the baby moving, and there it was! 164BPM and the most amazing sound ever. I couldn't believe it. Baby moved around a few times, which we heard, and the heartbeat was clear and strong. So amazing, I can't believe it!! :D

First Ultrasound
got the ultrasound at 10am. saw the gestational and yolk sac, and maybe a tiny shadow that could've been the fetal pole, though it's way early. not ectopic! my uterus looked beautiful :) david got teary eyed. love him.

First Positive Pregnancy Test
The night before, we had sex and I had really intense cramping. I just knew. The next morning, I tested and it was super faint. Later that night, a digital confirmed! Using progesterone cream to help this baby stick! Grow, baby, grow!

Told Husband/Partner
He was in complete shock, and then he had to leave for work/home. The next day, I gave him a letter explaining how he was the best person i could have possibly chosen to go down this path with, how i have known since day one he is my true partner in life. Before i could give him the letter, he told me the same thing but had the balls to say it with his mouth instead of his hand. That's okay. I want him to have that token. We are absolutely thrilled!!
