Baby Appleseed

The other day my brother called me "Mommy To Be." It's funny I had thought about being pregnant but not the obvious culmination of the pregnancy. Wow somebody's mommy.
I had the last of my blood tests today. That makes six in two weeks and I was running out of good veins. But my results were excellent and hearing the numbers gives me faith that everything is going okay in there. They scheduled us for an ultrasound next week. I can't believe that we get to see something this early. According to My Yahoo Pregnancy calendar, the embryo is the size of an appleseed and has a poppyseed sized beating heart. That blows my mind. I have already started talking to it. I know it can't hear but I want it to know we love it. I want to send strength to help it grow. I want it to know how much it is wanted. That we were willing to go through anything to have it in our lives.
