We are a little over 9 weeks pregnant!

We went to our first doctor's appointment September 18th. The doctor said that everything looks great so far. The heart was beating 174 times per minute. We saw the baby's leg paddle move during the ultrasound. The technician said it looks like the baby came from the right ovary. I thought it was weird that they could tell. The due date is April 30th, 2009 -- which I think is pretty perfect.

My belly is getting slightly bigger. I have gained 4 pounds so far which I am slightly concerned about only because the books say 1-4 pounds for the entire first trimester. We will see how that turns out. It helped to go online and see other ladies' bellies at this stage -- some of them had pouches too. I haven't been sick, and I have been very hungry.

My next doctor's visit is October 15th. One good thing the doctor said is that I don't have to get undress again until the 7 month visit. I will have my next ultrasound at 20 weeks.

Currently, I am thinking bright colors for the nursery. I have always loved the bright colors you often find on toys, but so far, I haven't had luck finding anything I really like. I am looking for something with teal, and bright pinks, oranges, reds -- maybe some black and white mixed in.

Happy and proud to be the first to send you this emial. Of-course becoming a grand parent has nothing to do with it. Brandon and Lisa you can not believe the love we already have for this gift from God.

Love Mark and Laura
