First come loves. Then come Marriage. Then comes...

That's right!  Baby Turner is on the way!  I'm finally past the first trimester yucks and happy to announce a healthy happy baby.  We were waiting to make it official on "the internets" until we finished our first trimester and had the neuchal fold test (and I of course had to let work know first, that'll be another post).  BTW, have you guys heard of a neuchal fold?  Talk about amazing...
A.  There's a tiny person growing inside me!  That's insane!
B.  He/She is only about 3 oz this week and nearly 13 weeks along.
C.  They were able to measure along the spine to check for any chromosomal abnormalities.  And nothing!  Which of course, was music to this mama to be and daddy to be's ears! 

The sonagrapher must have said "perfect" at least four or five times.  Which got my heart racing.  And speaking of hearts, we finally heard the heartbeat.  And my heart melted....

SO, here's little Turner's intro to blog land.  I hope this little one is ready to join our crazy family this fall.  With a due date of Oct. 8, it's going to be a long hot summer but I couldn't be happier about it!

I know, I know.  I'll probably be singing a different tune this summer.  But to be honest, even when I was feeling really crappy, throwing up...on a plane... in a barf bag... at my seat (yes, that happened but that's a story for another day)... I've been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  If that's what it takes to have a healthy baby, sign me up.  So far, I'm enjoying this miracle and not taking a thing for granted.  But yes, when the thermometer tips above 100 I can almost guarantee that I might complain a little. 

So, I'll catch everyone up in the next few posts about how I told Dude's Dude, how we told our parents, and what else we've been up to.  Until then, happy Friday!  We have a weekend of beautiful weather planned here in Dallas so I'm anxious to get some sun on my legs!  Have a great weekend~
