that countdown ticker is totally grossing me out

I'm not quite sure why the little picture over there on the countdown is so alien-ish - I've done some research, and I've seen photos on the internet of a 5 week old embryo (we're actually 6 weeks now) and they don't look NEARLY that scary.

So I decided to post a better/less scary picture.. just to make myself feel better.

In about 8 months...

We were originally going to wait until after the first trimester to announce the news, but we quickly found out that it's really hard to keep it a secret.
We are a little over 5 weeks pregnant (ok, that's a lie.. only one of us is pregnant.. if WE were pregnant then Bend would make the news again) but we're both excited, ecstatic actually.
I'm due August 19th.. yes, I'll be pregnant in the heat of summer, thank Jesus for air conditioning! (and my mom and dad - what a good wedding present)
So far, I feel great, no morning sickness, not too tired (well, not any more tired than usual, I still go to bed early)
Having a hard time drinking 100 ounces of water a day (that is a LOT of water to drink).

So, that's the scoop, we will keep you updated.

oh -and I know the countdown is a little scary at this point - but someday (hopefully soon) it will stop looking like an alien and more like a baby... at least that's what we're hoping.
