10 Weeks 1 Day

Hello All! Even in these last few weeks of my first trimester, I still find myself as tired as ever. It seems like every time I wake up from a quality nap I have at least 3 missed calls from all of you who care and are simply curious about how I'm doing. So, hopefully this helps and saves me from the guilt I am constantly feeling that I have a "million" people to call back.

I am officially 10 weeks yesterday. I went to my first appointment all alone, which was scary but so incredible. I felt a lot of mixed emotions, because on one hand it is so incredible and amazing, but on the other hand it's scary and sad that I'm so unprepared for everything. It feels like I've been waiting for this moment forever, but when I actually got it I wanted to take it back because it wasn't my "perfect" dream scenario. No married, no money, so far from family and friends... However, all in all, I came out of the appointment incredibly excited and in love with the baby. My due date is January 3rd, so it looks like no snowy Minnesota Christmas for Joanna. Harold has promised to stay home with me for Christmas so at least I won't be alone =). The doctor said the baby was perfect size, and I got a picture and everything! (Still need to scan it) It really doesn't do the baby justice though. I got a pretty good look! Arms, legs, head, and heartbeat! The baby kept moving and the doctor said "We've got a little show-off!"

I had a little nausea off and on this weekend, which I really haven't had up until this point. No vomiting, however, so I'm happy. But other than that I'm feeling good! I love you all!
