Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can finally post again!! Yes, the lack of posts in the past few weeks is due to the fact that when I open my mouth, nothing but baby comes out... and I wanted to make sure we told all of our favorite peeps in person before spilling it here on the blog!
It's been an amazing few weeks... and I'm telling you NOTHING in the world prepares you to see two lines on a pregnancy test!! And then once you get over the initial shock of that, you get to go for a sonogram and that, my friends, is like MAGIC. Seeing the little heart flicker is nothing short of magic. And if you're lucky like me, no one can figure out how to date your pregnancy since the baby's measurement doesn't jive with your LMP (last menstral period, duh) so you get to go for numerous sonograms so they can track the growth and get you a due date... always try for that, because I'm only 13 weeks (and 4 days) and I've had 4 sonograms already... it makes for good scrapbooking!
Everything is going great - we got the results back from our NT Scan and the doctor literally said we couldn't have gotten better results. This Friday starts my second trimester, and since I didn't blog (not even un-published posts!!) during the majority of the first trimester, I didn't really write down any of the key moments - finding out, telling our parents, the first ultrasound, our various due dates.... So I'm going to try to do that in the next few days so that I at least have something written down to go with the thousands of photos I've taken so far.
Oh, and that semi-creepy ticker in the upper right hand corner? That's counting down the days till November 5, 2010.
