Its for real

So, today I went to my first "exciting" OB appointment...But, first I would like to discuss the rain on my parade:

Stop asking me if I'm getting an ultrasound! I knooooow that most people, out in the real world, have fancy doctors where they get to see their baby every visit. But, I'm dealing with the military here! I will probably only get ONE ultrasound at around 20 weeks, and other than that I probably won't get any unless there are any problems or abnormalities. Now, it shouldn't really upset me-but I guess every time someone asks me for pictures I have to get myself back to being ok with the system I've been given. And for the most part I am ok with it! I mean, hey! This baby is gonna be free! And now days babies are EXPENSIVE. So I will count my blessings and be happy with what I get...

which is a heartbeat! YAY!

So, Hiphopopotamus, ( as he or she is currently named) is real...and the heartbeat was super easy to spot! She just dropped that little thing on my tummy and Bump-de-bump, we were in business. SUPER COOL! An super serial!
I still think I'm in a bit of shock about having a baby....nice that you have nine months to wrap your brain around it.
I think it was cool for Brett too...Poor guy, he's only been dealing with the NEGATIVE affects of pregnancy the last few months, so I think it was a nice change of pace for him to finally have something good happen! hahaha!

Free is good! I had to pay for my daughter out of my own pocket because at the time I didn't have insurance. 28,000 over three years. Be thankful for the little things!!



P.S. you need to get ahold of me about getting the Abt cousins together. No one else is going to step up and do it and this is something that is looong overdue.
