Mood swwwwwwing!

I have to say, so far this pregnancy has been relatively uneventful, but just today I found out what it can do to one's emotions! I got a healthy dose of embarrassment when I made a quick phone call to UHAUL to change our truck reservation. I explained to the poor gentleman on the other end, that 7 am was too early for us to pick up the truck and could we please reserve it for the afternoon instead. He then asked how long we needed it for, and as I sat there trying to think it through, a thick brain fog settled over me (though in fact, I knew perfectly well going into the call exactly what hours I wanted it for) and suddenly out of nowhere I BURST into tears. Between sobs I sheepishly tried to explain that I'm pregnant and apparently very emotional right now. Well, evidently this poor man doesn't deal with a lot of pregnant women, as he panicked himself and was suddenly EXTREMELY helpful, prompt and kept telling me to "relax, it's ok." Hahaha, of course it's ok, it's a UHAUL truck reservation, not a life-changing event! Goodness me. Well, I suppose I have to have a few of these little embarrassing nuggets to store away for good laughs later.

Baby's first picture!

Mark joined me for my first ultrasound, this morning. I'm 7 weeks, 1 day along and baby measured exactly that. Hurray! We got to hear our little guy's heartbeat, nice and strong at 152 beats per minute. For those of you who aren't ultrasound picture savy, the baby is the oblong shape on the left, and the round ball on the right is the yolk sac.
I continue to feel absolutely wonderful, some tiredness aside. We're so thrilled to have been able to see our baby, as I was getting a little anxious about feeling so great. (Although I hear sometimes morning sickness holds off til week 8...I'll keep you posted.)
Praise the Lord for his wonderful blessings to us!
