196 days and counting...

About 196 days until the Edwards family becomes 3. That's right, we are pregnant and due at the beginning of April!!


Here is a picture of me at about 11 1/2 weeks pregnant. That is a combination of baby bump and pregnancy bloating, lol. So far I have been blessed with a fairly easy first trimester. I started having some mild nausea around 6 weeks and it went away at 10 weeks. Couldn't ask for better than that! Aside from a few other uncomfortable symptoms, things have been going really well.

Today we got to hear our little peanut's HB, 160 bpm! It was amazing. My friend, Jonelle, took her little boy to her OB appointment and the conversation went something like this. When they did the doppler her son said, "oh there's a choo-choo in mommy's belly!" The mom replied, "no, that's the baby." To which the son replied, "oh, the baby is riding a choo-choo in mommy's belly!!" I totally thought of this when the nurse found the heartbeat. That is exactly what it sounded like....a little choo-choo chugging away in there. :)

Now we are almost in the 2nd trimester and are starting to get really excited that this little bean is probably here to stay!

Congratulations!! I am so happy for you guys. You will be a great mommy! You are so good with kids. Carter said the same thing about the "choo choo". Now if I ask him where baby sister is he just says, "oh the choo choo." I think we are going to have the baby give him a train when she is born, wouldn't that be funny?

Jonelle, I had total preggy brain and forgot that it was carter that said that and I read it on your blog lol. It just stuck with me because it was such a cute thing to say. I agree, she should give him a train. He will love her forever :)
