It's a...

Yupp, we were surprised too! Well at least I was. I thought for sure I was having a boy. Jeremy guessed a girl. Of course he was right. I am so excited though. Walking through the stores I point out to Jeremy that we get to buy baby dolls and barbies for our little girl. Yes, I have already started making bows for her hair. We are still deciding on names though. We want to have a list of names for when she is born to choose from.

Tuesday we went to have an ultrasound and Wednesday I started Student Teaching. yayy!! I have been waiting for this for months!! I have finally been placed and have been observing since Wednesday. I love my class. I love my cooperating teacher. I just get super tired and make sure I eat constantly and drink lots of water. My students think it is fun to come up with girl names to name our baby. haha. It is pretty funny. Some of them I say, "Oh that is cute, but you can name your dog that."

I love being on a schedule now and not just sleeping all the time. I have to get up in the mornings and get ready for the day. I am hoping, and I have heard, that this will make the rest of my pregnancy go by fast because I am pretty busy.

The time has come...

Jeremy and I are starting a blog. Well I will be mostly writing it, but Jeremy will add his two cents.

The main reason why we are starting a blog is to keep people updated through the next chapter in our life as we start a family!! We are pretty excited.

It all started when we prayed and felt impressed that it was time to start a family. I was off birth control for two months. I took a pregnancy test one night after I told Jeremy how my stomach had been bothering me and that I had been super emotional lately. Usually I am not an emotional person, well that has changed.

It was quite a shock at first, seeing the big plus sign on the pregnancy test. It didn't seem real. I have been very blessed. I have not had any morning sickness. Thank goodness because I was finishing up my last semester of classes at BYU-Idaho on campus during my first trimester.

It was fun telling our parents the great news. Our siblings were also very excited.

It felt real the other day when we finally got to see 'baby Pitchforth' from an ultrasound. We also heard the heartbeat. What a neat experience! It was a reassurance that someone is living inside of me. Weird!!! but wayyyy exciting. Jeremy said that I had a smile on my face the whole time!
Here is 'baby Pitchforth' sucking its thumb. It was moving quite a bit and the doctor asked if I feel it, I said no, he said 'oh just wait'.

We find out on Tuesday if it's a boy or a girl. 

here it is!!

I am starting a blog. yayy!!
