One trimester down, Two to go!

Well, today was a pretty big day that Lucy and I had been waiting for. First, it is the end of the first trimester (give or take a day or two). The baby is 13.5 weeks old and so far so good. Lucy is still feeling a bit nauseous, but has gotten pretty adept at eating small meals often to keep it under control. We are hoping that the nausea begins to subside as we enter the next trimester. The exhaustion, however, will likely stay.

Today, however, the adrenaline was pumping because it was also our first ultrasound. We saw the baby move, stretch, roll over and jump. It was amazing. He/she was in good health and the technician said that all of the checks were normal which was a relief. In fact, he/she is within a day of where we would expect the baby to be at this point, measuring in at 3" from head to bottom. Our official due date is January 9th, 2008.

The best part is that now we have pictures to share!

hee hee.... can you believe we all started out looking like that? I'm not sure your kid is going to want to see these pictures in ten years.

Radio lab's episode on Time had a 2 minute clip of a girl from birth to 18 years. Snippets of crying to babbling to rudimentary speech to discourse. It was pretty cool.

I'm blogging. The anonymous was easier..didn't have to sign up.

Great site. I hope it's a girl, your boy's names are awful.
