I thought it would be neat to keep a post about all the little things that are going on during pregnancy. Just so we can look back and see how things progressed! So, here goes!
July 29-- Got a positive test! It was before church on Sunday morning. Taylor's parents were in town, so I put a sign on our bathroom mirror that said "Congrats! You're gonna be a DADDY!" for Taylor to find when he got home. He was very excited!! Later that afternoon, we changed Taylor's computer background to a picture of Jake that said "Big Brother" and let his dad figure it out. Leeland had a couple of happy tears and Debsie was trying to figure out where our new puppy was.
August 2-- First doctor's appointment to confirm the pregnancy. It was the real deal!
August 3-- We gave my mom an early "birthday gift" which was a bib that said "I love grandma." She literally flipped out. Then we called my dad. His response: "How did that happen?!" haha
August 14-- First ultra sound. We got to see the little peanut and hear his/her little heartbeat. Very surreal, but very exciting. Also chose an OB and made first appointment with them.
August 19-- Told the good news to our church family by putting a photo on the screens after service. We then later posted the same photo on facebook to tell the whole world!
September 10-- First appointment with OB. Everything still looks good, heard the heartbeat. Changed due date back to original date of March 29. Also prescribed some nausea medicine (thank the Lord!)
October 9-- Another OB appointment. Was in and out in 35 minutes... record! All bloodwork looked good and I was just happy to have a quick visit!
October 13-- Found out Peanut is a baby GIRL! Her name will be Mallie Kathryn Johnson. Mommy and Daddy are so excited we're having a little princess!
