There is alot to deal w/ when you're pregnant. I don't think I realized how many decisions I'd have to make along the way, or how hard some of them would be. I want to have a natural birth... but do I want to use Lamaze, the Bradley method, or a doula? Do I want a water birth, or use a birth ball or chair? Do I want an ultrasound? And if I have one do I want to know the sex of the baby? I'm so overwhelmed sometimes. Its so hard to know what information to believe. There is so much out there and I don't know who to trust. I feel like I'm being pulled in too many directions. Everyone has an opinion and everyone thinks their way is the right way! What to do, what to do?!?

Wednesday was my 12week prenatal checkup. Isaac and I got to hear the heartbeat of our baby! It was the most amazing thing! We only heard it for a second but it was soft and fast and precious! Kandy, our nurse, said the baby kept hiding from us and thats why we couldn't hear it more than that. But next month we'll hear the heartbeat more and hopefully get an ultrasound done too. Exciting stuff! Yeah!

We had very enjoyable holidays, visiting w/ friends and family. We announced our news to everyone who didn't already know. Everyone is excited for us, of course! I'm 11 weeks along now. Feeling pretty good, not feeling as much morning sickness as I was before. Still tired alot. We have another doctor's appointment next week and we should be able to hear the heartbeat then!
