Introducing.....

Baby Welch!




I had my first ultrasound today! They measured the baby at 8 weeks, and with a healthy heartbeat! We are so excited to finally see our little peanut! =)

And you know the best part? I found out my insurance pays 100% for prenatal care. That means I don't even have to pay co-pays for my visits. How great is that? I am going to call the insurance and try and get the lab work that was technically prenatal lab work that they applied to my deductible and try and get them to cover it, now knowing they pay for everything. =) That lifts a HUGE weight off of our shoulders financially. Thanks for all your comments and prayers regarding my "Stressed" post!

So, what else did I do today with my mom? Well, We drove 6 hours round trip to Winnemucca, NV to pick up this little cutie of a dog:


Her name is precious, she is a Sheltie, and is my grandma's Christmas present! She was the only one we could find, and is just super adorable. (though totally shy) My grandma recently had to put one of her dogs to sleep, and loves Shelties. =)

Anyways, I am back to work tomorrow. Hope everyone has a happy hump day!

Yay for good insurance! I'm sure you're very excited about things now, as you should be! Did you ever decide if you want to find out if Baby Welch is a boy or a girl?
