Pregnant is the new skinny!!!

Dusty and I are proud to announce that we are having a baby!!!!!!


I can't even tell you how excited we are. I will be 13 weeks tomorrow and the doctor said everything is going smoothly and looks great! I went in yesterday just thinking that I was going to hear the heartbeat. Dusty couldn't make the appointment due to a test at school so we were going to call him as the doctor put the heartbeat on a speaker. Well, the little fish wouldn't sit still long enough for that so we got to do an ultrasound and LOOK at our sweet little baby!!!!


I was absolutely amazed and astounded that I didn't cry; I was just overjoyed. I have never felt a feeling like that in my life. What a miracle! What an awesome miracle! Since Dusty didn't get a chance to see the ultra sound the doctor said that we will get to take another look at our next appointment so Daddy can see too!! I can't wait till July 7th :-)


I wasn't feeling well before the appointment and TIRED was not even a word to describe me (I know, I know....just wait until AFTER the baby....) but after that appointment I went straight to BYU to show Dusty the pictures and I had so much energy and I felt GREAT! I had a brief glimpse of knowing how worth it all of this is. This sickness doesn't even matter. As my mother so wisely told me in a moment of agony one day this past week, "You are doing the most important work there is to be done in this whole wide world." It's so true. I am so blessed that the Lord has seen fit to allow me to come to earth and bear children and raise and rear them with ALL of the love I possess. I can't wait to hold my baby in my arms and meet each other properly :-)


Our due date is December 13th, 2009. I can't even believe that we will be having a baby before the year is out! What a Christmas present!!! If you get a Christmas card from me in August just know that I am trying to catch up and get ready before the tornado hits :-) Well, I have always been bad about that anyway, so don't expect anything! HAHA Just kidding.


I love you all and am so grateful you are all with us and supporting us with your love and kindness and prayers.


Please meet, Baby Rhoads......

I'm so happy for you!!!!! I think I'm always more tired while I'm prego. Yeah I'm tired after the baby comes but I literally can sleep 24 hours (I did a few times) when I'm prego. I love you and can't wait to hold the baby:)

Angela said...

Yahoo!!!!! Yeah growing a baby is hard work. Keep it up, I do expect to hold this kid before they get too big to be cute!

Dusty and Amy said...

Hey I might be able to on July 7th Marcie, cause we are doing another ultra sound for Dusty to see and who knows, we might be able to tell then. I will be in my 18th week!

Once again... Congratulations!!! We are super excited for you guys and I'm impressed your baby posed for the picture- I can actually see him/her.

Congratulations!! I loved hearing the first ultra sound, it was so amazing, I was surprised I didn't cry. And I told Mitch just seeing the baby made being sick so worth it. I still think it after every appt. You might know what it is at the next appt!!! Congrats!

Amyo,

Of course, I am so happy for you!!!! Having a sweet little baby changes your life in so many ways. You will know all too soon the wonderful feelings that make every second of nausea worth it. And I still hate your guts because you aren't even that sick. I guess that would be compared to other people I know...ha I can't wait to meet little Jelly Bean. I miss you so much, wish you were closer. But for now our long distance relationship will have to do!! Maybe that will change one day?!?!? Love you sooooo much!!!!!!!
