1. Sharing your news This was fun for us. Sharing news with immediate family, then friends and then the Facebook/blog world! 2. Making your first doctor appointment We did this before sharing the news. It was exciting. We thought the response from the nurse would be more animated - but I guess they meet pregnant ladies everyday. That's why we looked forward to sharing with family and friends. 3. Hearing your baby's heartbeat This scared me! The doctor didn't tell me it was coming and then -there it is! A very cool experience, every time I hear it. With the heart conditions within my family, hearing this little guy's heart pumping away like it should is a beautiful sound. 4. Experiencing your first craving I'm not sure if I've had this yet. I've wanted certain food but when I get it (usually not immediately) it's not as good as I remember. Is a craving supposed to be met and enjoyed? Like you crave ice cream and eat the entire tub? Or you crave pickles and eat the whole jar? That has not happened yet. Usually at one bite I'm no longer interested. 5. Starting a Scrapbook Haven't done this...I want to but I've only seen a few baby books that have 'pre-birth' journals. I pointed one out to Hubby, but he didn't take the hint. 6. Writing a Letter to your unborn baby Way too emotional to do this right now. The blog will have to do. 7. Feeling that first kick check! Read about it here 8. Starting your weekly belly photos Oh ya...I need to post those. 9. Having your belly touched by a complete stranger Haven't had a stranger do it yet, but my brother-in-law was the first to touch it and the same day my husband's aunt touched it. VERY AWKWARD. I'm fine with it...just SO weird. 10. Arguing over baby names It's not an argument if you win ;) kidding, we really aren't discussing it 11. Buying your first baby item I bought a onsie that reads "Rad Like Dad" for my husband's birthday in July. Thankfully the baby is a boy and will rock that onsie! But with Pinterest and Etsy I want to buy so much more!!! The following have not yet happened! 12. Watching your belly move 13. Waking up and having nothing fit 14. Realizing you now waddle 15. Feeling your first contraction I'm halfway there and more than half of these have happened! Exciting times!
