Today was my first doctor's appointment... but it was nothing like last times. I did the usual vital signs, weight (less than last time, go me!), pee in the cup, blood draw, and meet with the nurse. When I saw the doctor he kind of scared me. He felt my uterus and had a weird look on his face and then looked for a fetal heart tone. He couldn't find it anywhere... So then he really got concerned. I've never had anything go wrong, so my heart just dropped. He was the only doctor there today so he was extremely busy and behind. But this is why I continue to go to Dr. Merrill because he is always there for me and always remembers me. He took the time to go over to the ultra sound room, warm up the machine and do the ultrasound himself. Their ultrasound tech was not in today. THANK GOODNESS we saw the baby and its little heart beating away. How many doctors would really do that for their patients. I just LOVE Dr. Merrill. He put me at ease and also printed off a few of the pictures for me to take home. The reason he couldn't find the heart beat is because I am only 8 weeks and 5 days along about. I had calculated 11 weeks... oops. I guess I don't ovulate when I think I do. So here is the first picture of our little peanut. God love it! So if calculations are correct, I am due February 21st, 2010.

Tyler and I met on September 30th 2006. We were immediately attached at the hip. Two weeks shy of one year together, we were hitched. Tyler, Kayden and I became a family. Now we have added two little angels to our family, Skylar and Aaliyah. Life is good and we love watching our little family grow.
