8 Weeks and First Ultrasound

Today we went to my first appointment for this 4th little love! Yes, there was just ONE! Ha! All my friends just knew that it was going to be twins. Sorry, girls! :) We were able to hear the heartbeat and see our precious one "wiggling" all around on the screen. My doctor said that the baby was measuring about 4 days larger than what I had calculated, so our due date is set for around Sept. 9th. So, technically, I am 8 wks. and 5 days. Thank you, Lord, for this amazing miracle!

8 week baby bump!
Yes, I know that it is already large! I just keep telling myself that this is my 4th pregnancy and that my ab muscles are pretty much shot! Ha! :)

Hope you are all staying warm. It is in the low 20's here. They are predicting at least 3 inches of snow on Friday for Houston! Of course, it is the one day that Conn and I are set to fly out of town for a little weekend get away. We are praying that the whole town doesn't shut down and that our flights are canceled. We shall see!

Kelli- I don't have a single stretch mark! I know, totally crazy after having 3 babies! I am PRAYING that this 4th baby doesn't make up for all the other pregnancies! Ha!

This is so exciting!! I just found out that I am pregnant too. You are about a month ahead of me. I am due around the first of October. I love these first ultrasounds!! Your belly is adorable!

Yep, it's crazy how those ab muscles remember EXACTLY what to do as soon as another pregnancy starts! A little unnerving, actually! :) You look terrific!
