I'm not sure if it counts as a pregnancy craving or not, but I seem to be drinking hot chocolate by the bucket lately.  Maybe it's a pregnancy thing...or maybe it's just because it's getting cold outside and festive inside.  At any rate, this is definitely my new vice.  I justify it because the only way I'll drink milk is in hot chocolate, and calcium is good for you, right?

Telling The Kids

We wanted to tell our kids before it became public knowledge that I was pregnant.  So after everything was fine at the scan, we sat down our kids and told them.

My four-year-old is absolutely delighted.  She says she's "quite pleased" and she sang a little baby song.

Our two-year-old doesn't really understand what's going on, but at least this time she didn't say she'd rather be a car.

Dating Scan

As you can see, we didn't get very good pictures at our scan this time.  The baby was still really low in my pelvis and tucked up at an awkward angle, so the sonographer had a hard time seeing him (or her) clearly.  So unfortunately my baby still just looks like a splodge on the scan photos.

The good news is that they were able to do a couple of measurements, see the heartbeat, and generally see that it is a healthy pregnancy and that the baby looks fine.  I was really anxious to make sure that everything's OK, so I'm very relieved.
