We (Brandi and I) went for the first ultrasound today and saw One healthy little bean growing. It was so cool to see the heart just pumping away (Nothing else was discernable). When you see that, it makes it so real. And to talk with the baby's mama and share the good news of a healthy, viable child was such a joy! I almost didn't feel sick for a while..........I also went to get a shot of B12. Hope to feel better soon. Can't wait to see the video that Brandi is loading!

Why do they call it MORNING sickness?

Because my body apparently doesn't know the difference in times of day. Apparently, it DOES know if I eat meat, or poultry however. For some reason, my body's wisdom believes that it is not good for me in the first half of pregnancy and I can't seem to fool it. So, for now, I go to sleep with nausea as a result of fantastic chicken fajitas and wake on the ultrasound day! IP want me to be on the phone during the procedure so they can hear straight away. How exciting!

I am currently............

Six weeks and two days pregnant! My IP (Intended Parents) are international and flew in to meet me in San Diego for the transfer. We transfered two 5 day embryos and were blessed to have a pregnancy with the first try! In two days, we get to have an ultrasound and see if there is one or two little hearts beating. Either way, we are thankful and humbled to have quick success. The morning sickness is here and does not feel compelled to be present in the morning only. All of the symptoms of pregnancy are a reminder of years past, carrying my own babies and I am so excited to give that joy to my IP in December! They are so excited and wonderful people, it makes it even more exciting for me.

Our prayers are on the next couple of months that the baby grows well and I can still run my busy, busy wonderful life with morning sickness all day! Teaching yoga is certainly challenging with my weakness, but keeps me healthy..........:-)
