Did you miss it?

Ok so turns out our witty little holiday card has taught us something very important - not everyone READS the holiday cards when you send them out.  WHAAAAT?!?!  Who would have guessed it!

Ok so in case you missed it...we are EXPECTING...a JUNE!

Here are some things I want to remember about the first 18 weeks of pregnancy:

*Found out I was pregnant on October 25, 2011

*Uncle Scott suffered a stroke on October 26, 2011
*Post-poned our trip to California on November 6, 2011 after suffering a bad case of the flu combined with severe morning sickness
*Horrible "all day long" sickness from about 5 weeks to 14 weeks
*Two different meds to try to control said naseau
*Trip post-ponement led to the discovery of a low progestrone pregnancy (doesn't God work in mysterious ways)
*Took progestrone to keep baby safe from 6 weeks to 15 weeks
*Two trips to the ER for fluids and IV's of anti-naseau meds
*Lost a total of 16 lbs in first trimester but baby you are STRONG and pulling what you need
*First heartbeat at 6 weeks was 111; heartbeat now regularly around 144-146
*Weekly (sometimes twice a week) appointments to see Dr. Carlson from 6 weeks to 15 weeks; usually getting to see our little babe every week to be sure you were ok
*January 24, 2012 - first feeling of baby movement
*We are NOT going to find out the sex of the baby this time
*Big ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday January 31, 2012
*Due June 30, 2012
*Couldn't be more excited!  All of the above will be worth it in the end!

Having known twice and not known once, I can tell you, when the baby is born you will be so thankful for the surprise...but you will cry;) Love you Paulsrud Family!!!
