Double Digits!

Yesterday we hit another milestone with this pregnancy. We're now at 10 weeks! If conventional wisdom is correct, baby DJ is doing quite well because I have been quite sick! First I tried the sea bands, then we got a prescription for some meds which made me into a zombie. Now I'm on some new meds that they give to chemo patients. I went a whole week without throwing up. I was starting to think the worst was past until this morning when I went to Giant Eagle for a few groceries and um, "watered the lawn" on my way out. Oh well... Our next OB appointment is June 3, the day after Niels' birthday. After all the appointments in the beginning, a month seems like forever so I'm really looking forward to the assurance that everything is going well.

We have a few posts we've been meaning to make: DJ's first gift (Raggedy Ann and Andy from Grampa Elmer), Bailey's near death experience, the China earthquake and a few other things. Hopefully we'll be feeling up to posting soon.

Baby DJ says hello...

We are very happy to finally share with the world that little baby DJ is scheduled to bless this world with his/her presence on December 16, 2008. Yep, we're pregnant!!

Earlier today we had our 2nd ultrasound and saw the heartbeat. 150 bpm, exactly where it should be. We are only 7 weeks along so baby DJ is very busy doing what he/she does best, making mommy nauseous. Well, in the end (Lord willing), we'll have baby DJ to show for it, so we don't mind too much... ;-)

We told both American Mom and Dad (aka Gramma and Grampa) and Dutch Dad and Mom (aka Opa and Oma), and they are all very excited. Baby DJ will be the special guest and make an appearance at Niels' mom's 60th birthday celebration this coming Saturday. For obvious reasons we can't be there in person, but with a little help of modern day technology everybody in the Netherlands can still have their first look at our precious baby DJ!

Keep growing, baby DJ. Mommy and daddy are looking forward to meet you in December!!
