We're having a baby!!

   I hope you are all doing great! Me- I have been a terrible, terrible blogger! I no longer have a creative bone in my body! I havent worked on a thing, lifted a paint brush or hot glue gun or whatever it was in MONTHS!! I promise I'll be crafty again, but right now all my energy has been sucked away, but I have a good excuse... We're having a baby!! 
I had to hold it in for what seemed like FOREVER!!! We went to the dr for our 1st appointment & then just told our immediate family, but told them not to tell until we went back 2 weeks later for another appointment, just to be safe.
 I guess we wanted to be double sure before we announced it, anyone who has ever lost a baby- (or 2 for us) each time its more & more difficult to tell) I felt like if I told too soon I would jinx it or something,so enough about that...  here's our little peanut...
 8 weeks, 6 days.... The heartbeat was 172- they said everything looked great & my due date is May 14th...
 Reese seems pretty excited, the sonographer even gave her her own little copy of the ultrasound to carry around. She'll point to my tummy & say baby, now whether or not she's excited once its here, we'll see!! 
We had a little photo shoot... 
So we finally announced it at 11 weeks! 
My 2nd dr appt they said everything looked perfect & the heartbeat was 170 this time. The dr has me coming every 2 weeks for now, just for piece of mind :) which is fine with me, I couldnt handle waiting a month, at least in the beginning!
I am going to have to get a better photographer (sorry Will) for my belly pictures though... 
He tried ;) 
He redeemed himself a few days later on our anniversary... 
Every pregnant womans dream!! He did good :) 
Do I have any idea what we're having? 
No way, not at all, the heartbeat is right on with what Reese's was, either way I dont care, Im just blessed to have another!
My cravings so far have been popcorn, golden grahams(which I never eat) and root beer ( I craved root beer with Reese too, havent had a root beer since I was pregnant with her) 
Ive been sick just a few times, always when Im brushing my teeth, Its just been so different this time around because Im not working as much, so Im not inhaling my meals in between clients. I just kinda snack all day & not much really sounds good, Ill have a yogurt, then an hour later I'll have string cheese, then a salad, etc & Ill eat all day long. With Reese I was like BIG MAC!! NOW!! And then 3 hours later I was eating a footlong sub, blizzard almost every night(because it was summer & I was miserable) So maybe my eating habits have had something to do with feeling better! 
So thats all for now, looks like my crafting/project blog will turn into a pregnancy blog for a little while, but Im still dying to get that piece painted for my dining room ;) 
Thank you all for reading!!
