Today was a very exciting day, we had our first doctors appointment! They ran a couple of tests and then did an ultrasound. Dr. Woods says our little baby is doing just fine. Everything is normal and looking good. We were thrilled to see our baby's heart beating away! It was an awesome experience. Do you think the baby looks more like a lima bean or a peanut? The doctor said most girls start off looking like lima bean and boys are more like a peanut. James and I think the baby looks more like a peanut....... maybe it's a boy!
More to Come,
P.S. Next Doctors appointment is on November 28th.

Work has been rough this week with my lack of energy and constant state of nausea. Not to mention emotional outbursts - a coworker said something smart to me and usually I would just let it roll off my back but on this day I immediately burst into tears! Pray that these symptoms subside soon otherwise I may loose my mind.
On a happy note, the Gators won against Kentucky yesterday which James and I were thrilled about. GO GATORS! Our first Doctor's Appointment is on Tuesday and I am going to Chicago for Claire's first bridal shower on Friday :) Lots of things to look forward to.

James took the first "belly shot" this morning. We were both surprised that there is actually a very small "baby bump" there. I feel like my pants are a bit tighter but have actually lost weight because of a decrease in my appetite. We will try to put a new belly shot up every week. Enjoy!
More To Come,
6 week, 110 lbs
Sorry it's been awhile since my last post not much has been going on pregnancy wise. No morning sickness to report but I am still tired all the time, I went to bed at 7pm last night! I don't think I have been in bed that early since I was in elementary school.
James has been busy with T-38 training and he caught the cold I had last week so I have been nursing him back to health :) As for me, working two jobs has kept me plenty busy. My 4 year old class is a handful but I enjoy the children.
The weather has finally gotten cool here and the leaves are changing colors. It's a pleasant change from Florida where you never see the change of seasons. James and I are going to pumpkin patch this weekend, it is right outside of town and you can pick your own pumpkin and then cut it from the ground. Last year we carved the pumpkin and then roasted the pumpkin seeds and they were so yummy, I think we will do that again.
Happy Fall To All,
P.S. The pictures above are the jet James flies and its cockpit.

I always heard you will be tired when pregnant but I never imagined I could be this exhausted! I have been averaging a 2-4 hour nap daily for the past week and still getting into bed early between 9:30-10pm. Most of you know this is out of character for me as I am usually a night owl. I have read you get your energy back around the 12th week, let's hope this is true otherwise one of the two jobs I am working will have to go. Poor James has even been neglected, with all the extra sleep I need home cooked meals and laundry have not been getting done. Love to you!
More To Come,
James and I are happy to announce that there will be a "Little Darlson" joining our family in June of 2008! We found out we are pregnant on Saturday, September 29th and could not wait to share the news with all of you. James or I will be posting messages letting you know how the pregnancy is progressing. Be on the look out for prospective baby names, belly shots and ultrasound pictures, our first one will be on Tuesday, October 23. We hope you all will be able to enjoy the anticipation of this new life through this blog since we are so far away.
More To Come,
