Expecting a bundle of joy!!

Happy New Year!!! This is the year our baby is born!

I am going to devote majority of our blog to our pregnancy.

I'm going to backdate a little bit...here goes....

We found out we were pregnant on October 25 and boy were we without words! We told a few family and friends but kept it pretty private until our first ultrasound at 7 weeks. The first time we were able to see God's miracle we were blessed to have my parents and Carey's mom there with us!

Our first sonogram at 7 weeks!

First Family Portrait! Meet the Leighows!
Hugging after seeing our baby for the first time!

The first trimester has been a little rocky...I've unfortunately been sick most days but am on the downhill side of that! I took progesterone shots through the end of week 12...122 total shots to be exact! Carey was so supportive and gave me the shots every day! Here is a pic of the needle that we used!

We went back for another ultra sound at 10 weeks and here is baby Leighow!
The baby was moving all around! Kicking it's legs, moving it's arms and even turned upside down!!! It was so surreal and we have a video of it! What a blessing the Lord has given us!

Everyone has been asking for belly pics so here goes....

10 Weeks

11 Weeks

12 Weeks

13 Weeks

As of today, we are 13 weeks and 4 days and the baby is the size of a lemon! It is still so surreal to us that we have our miracle baby growing inside of me!

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers through all of this!

God Bless You!
