It worked!!!

So, it's been about 3 months since I posted, but there is a reason why.  I'm not one to keep my mouth shut, but now that we're out of the scariest phase, I can finally say Kerry and I are expecting!  The first round of IUI worked and here we are, 13 weeks and 4 days along and so far everything is looking great!  This was the announcement photo for facebook.

It's nothing too special, but since I'm a chubby girl, I'm not exactly popping out belly wise and nobody wants to see a picture of my chubby tummy!  LOL  My first twelve weeks were really rough, but I'm finally starting to feel better (THANK GOD!).  Although, having headaches everyday totally sucks!  I'll be talking to the doctor about those on Wed.  Here is the best ultrasound picture we have so far, baby does not want to cooperate much!

We did get to see baby moving a lot today and sucking and swallowing which is cool.  Baby was face down so was not cooperating for many pictures today!  We had an early blood screening called verifi ( so we will know chromosomal abnormalities and sex pretty early, which is awesome!  So, here comes the shopping!!

Today's song goes out to the love of my life, Kerry!

"Turning Page"~ Sleeping at Last

I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
Well I would have known
What I was living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase

I surrender who I’ve been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well I would have known
What I’ve been living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Though we’re tethered to the story we must tell
When I saw you, well I knew we’d tell it well
With a whisper we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees
