And now for my next trick...

Some big changes are coming our way!! First we decide to get a puppy. We will be picking him up in October. His name is Magnus and we are very excited to have a dog in the house again. (for those that don't know, we took Freya back to the rescue because of some health issues). Well, now I feel a little like those families who decide to adopt a child after trying to have their own for so long, and then get pregnant as soon as everything is finalized. Haha. Cause that is basically what happened, except our adopted child is a dog. And now I am PREGNANT!! This is going to be interesting! We are both so excited and still a little in shock. I'm due May 7th. I'm feeling great so far. No morning sickness....yet...and let's hope it stays that way. I get tired here and there and I am constantly hungry! But otherwise it's not too bad. So I will try to update more often and let you all know how things are going. Here is a picture of my announcement while we were at the Magic Castle. I tried my hand at a magic trick and it didn't turn out exactly as planned but I still got the point across.



And here is a picture of our first ultrasound. It's a little hard to see but you can kind of make it out down in the left "corner". The round part is the yolk sac and the little blob next to it is the embryo. :) We were able to see the heart flicker. It was beating at a healthy 130 bpm.

We are sooooo excited for you guys! Can't wait to see you guys in a few months for some maternity pics(wink, wink!).
P.S. That lemon 'trick' at the magic castle was seriously one of my favorite parts of the night (Karin still has a hard time not cracking up when we talk about it! LOL!).
Love you guys!

Wow, I haven't checked out your blog (or anyone's!) for ages...you know we LOVED your announcement!! I hadn't thought about the adoption/PG comparison..that's hilarious! and ever so WONDERFUL!!!! We are absolutely thrilled, thrilled, thrilled & I'm wishing we lived closer so we could share the experience. Can't wait to see you in a few weeks! Happy, happy pregnancy. Get lots of rest :-) Love you TONS.
