Our First Post!

Hello Everyone (well, probably just family is going to be reading this!) -- Rob and I thought that this would be a good way to for our family in Texas to keep up with what is going on with their grandson to be... yes, we are having a baby :) We went to our 12 week apointment and got to hear the heartbeat and they said everything looked great, so we are telling everyone now! Tadpole Stafford is due on January 9, 2009. (we like to call him our little tadpole :)). So, now we are looking to move into a bigger house soon --- got lots going on. I guess to update on how the pregnancy is going so far... not very much fun yet! Well, at first it was so exciting, we found out at 5 weeks that we were pregnant (and yes, the rumors that I took like 7 tests in 3 days might be true!), but on week 7 I started getting really bad morning sickness ALLLLL day long. and that's lasted very badly until the past week or so. Now I'm extremely tired and don't know how I make it through the long days. The doctor said this should all be easing up soon... so I am waiting, very impatiently! Rob was really excited about getting pregnant, he bought me flowers when we found out and he's been the best husband ever putting up with me. ooh, and I've gained 6 lbs. in 12 weeks, even without being able to keep very much down, so the doctor said that was good --- lol, if I gain too much, I'll prolly stop announcing how much it is. you can go to and look at pictures -- we are trying to post a belly shot every 2 weeks or so --- and boy it's already getting big! We won't find out for 7 1/2 more weeks what the baby is --- we all think it's a boy though. A girl would be fun too, they're so cute :) I guess this is all we have for now, will update more later.
