Baby Kimball Pics

So, Monday we had our first ultrasound...wow, so awesome!! Technology just really amazes me. Baby was very photogenic and even did a little dance for us.


Baby Kimball at 13 weeks old- and about 3 inches long!



This is the pic the ultrasound tec said if she were a betting woman, we were having a boy...no painting any rooms or buying boy stuff just yet though! We'll have our next ultrasound on March 31 that we will know the gender for sure!

Here is baby Kimball just stretchin out!

It was such a neat experience for us...even Blake kept saying "Isn't our baby cute?" I totally agree. I love baby Kimball!!

What you've all been waiting for...

I know you've been wondering "where is that witty and totally funny Mandy?" well, no need to keep you all wondering...yes, I'm pregnant! I'm about 12 weeks now and just surviving. It's been a rough last month but I'm just extremely grateful just to be pregnant. I know that timing is just the way it's supposed to be.



Blake and I have been "trying" to get pregnant for almost 3 yrs now so this is a wonderful surprise. We had been seeing a fertility specialist since October and were supposed to start doing artificial insemination at the end of December. However, we (unknowingly) conceived at the beginning of December so it was wonderful to find out we didn't have to go that route.


It really explained a lot when going to Colorado for Christmas, feeling nauseated the entire time, then waking up every night to pee. I knew something was different over the holidays, but didn't actually find out what that was until New Years Eve...what a fantastic present for the new year!!



So, this has been me a lot lately. Tired, nauseated...yeah that's me. Falling asleep at the drop of a hat...anywhere I find a soft surface. It's taking a real toll on my back. Stiff....ouch. I goes through days of complete and utter exhaustion- hense no posts and no comments on your lovely blogs. "They" say that "usually" the feeling crappy goes away after the first trimester, AKA right now, so hopefully I will be feeling more up to blogging, commenting, and don't forget- work and school full time. Thank you for being my friend...even if I've been a crappy one lately. I promise, I'll make it up to you.
