Is that a thermometer?

Mikael thought this was a thermometer I had left out on the counter. Well, if it is...it just told me I'm PREGNANT!! Yup you read me right. Pregnant. A few posts back you might recall me mentioning being baby hungry and planning on getting pregnant this summer. Well summer came early in our household. A few weeks ago I thought I had the flu. Tired, achy, headaches. And then the nausea started and I knew something wasnt right. So I decided I better take a test and it was positive. I have to admit I wasnt overly thrilled at first I mean come on I am competing in my first mini triathlon in May. But the show must go on and with Mahina on board to bike for me, I will still compete. Throw up and all! I cant wait for the first trimester to be over. Laying around in my pjs all day might be fun for some but not this Mom.
We went to our first Doctor appointment yestarday and had an ultrasound. It official it really is in there, beating heart and all. (no Mikael I'm not faking)
The shock has worn off and I'm really getting excited, now only 32 more weeks to go!
The baby is due November 14th 2008
