...and changes our lives forever. The ultrasound below was taken at my first appointment (10 weeks). I am 14 weeks now and had another appointment today. We got to hear the heartbeat again, but I still have a hard time believing there is a baby inside of me. At my next visit (18 weeks), we will find out the gender! That seems so soon to me. I still don't feel pregnant. And as far as looking pregnant, I haven't gained any weight yet, but I do think my stomach is sticking out more than usual, especially at night. Is that normal? Sometimes I show Jared my belly in the evening and he accuses me of sticking it out on purpose...it's a noticeable difference at night.) It's crazy to think that in just 4 weeks the baby will be developed enough to clearly tell the gender. My doctor said that you can actually tell as early as 14 weeks, but there's no additional benefit to having an ultrasound that early, so we'll wait until 18. Can't wait!
