Helllllo world! Our New Year’s Resolution was to create a blog that will allow us to keep family and friends updated on the “baby situation” (thanks Dan, for the idea!). The hard part is not creating the blog, but instead keeping it updated so we’ll see how this goes!
To give a quick recap, Derek and I are expecting our first baby at the end of May 2009 and we are very excited. We’re planning to wait to find out the sex of the baby until I deliver because we think that this is one of the few, true surprises left in the world. We’ve had 2 ultrasounds so far, one at 12 weeks to make sure things were progressing properly and one at 18 weeks to take measurements of Baby and determine the gender it we so chose (we didn’t). Here are copies of our ultrasounds for your viewing pleasure!
Week 12 ultrasounds. Baby moved around so much, the ultrasound tech asked what I’d fed it before we came in. I replied “peaches”. So, we think Baby likes peaches!
Week 18 ultrasounds. From top down: Baby’s foot and toes of other foot, Baby’s arm and head, Baby’s profile! This time Baby was much more relaxed but sitting low in my belly, and the u/s tech couldn’t get very many clear measurements so we get to go back in for a 3rd ultrasound at the end of January!
