We're having a baby!

Most of my blog "followers" already know this, but Bagel and Cream Cheese are having a baby!

As of today, I'm 12w2d along and feeling great! I've had fatigue pretty bad, but no morning sickness (thank goodness!) I've heard some awful horror stories, so I've been keeping my fingers and toes crossed ever since I got my BFP! While I was on vacation a few weeks ago, my feet and ankles swelled up pretty good from the 9 hour plane ride, so I had a nice preview of what that will be like! I've had some smell and food aversions as well -- I've noticed that I can no longer tolerate the smell of my husband's dirty laundry, or the sight of fish. Pizza and fried foods are on my "can no longer eat" list. I begged Keith to order pizza the other night and could barely eat an entire slice.

We had our first ultrasound today and it was amazing to finally see our baby. It's measuring right on track at 12w3d and had a nice, strong heartbeat of 153. Hearing the "woosh woosh woosh woosh" of the heartbeat gave me chills....seeing and hearing the baby made it all seem a little more real. Keith was able to come to the appointment and the look on his face was priceless -- his eyes were glued to the monitor in awe. He's going to make such a great daddy :)


  1. That's incredible! I didn't expect the ultrasound to be so clear and show so much already!
    Congratulations! I'm so excited for you two!

  2. Aw, yay! That is so sweet about Keith. I can't wait for your bump pictures! :)

  3. Hi Amanda, I don't know if you remember me from the Knot, but I'm Christy and we were both planning weddings at the same time...anyway, I just wanted to tell you congratulations on your baby! I'm excited for you! I had to sell my horses, due to my son needing heart surgery but you do what you have to do for your babies! Well, I'm glad you're doing well, just thought I'd say hello! Take care!
