Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everybody!

I hope that this is the start of a fabulous new year for everyone.

It's amazing to think back on all of  the things that have happened in the past year.  In 2010 I got pregnant and lost my baby (I hate that saying--it's not like I misplaced them--but I've yet to think of a better term to use), and then got pregnant again.  My daughter started school.  I went through a lot of changes at work.  And this is just the reader's digest version of the year.

In 2011 I'm going to have a baby boy!  I can't wait to find out what else this year will bring.  I don't know most of what will happen this year, but I do have a few resolutions to share.

New year's resolution #1: Be a better blogger.  I realize I've been pretty spastic about posting lately.  I'd like to post once a week until my baby's born.  (After that we'll see what happens.)

New year's resolution #2: Be a more patient parent.

Happy Holidays Everybody!

Happy Holidays everyone!  If you're celebrating Christmas, Merry Christmas!  If not, happy holidays to any holidays that you do celebrate at this time of year.

My baby boy's foot

I'm now at the halfway point: 20 weeks pregnant! 

We had an ultrasound this week.  Our sonographer was really good.  We got some really good views of our baby wriggling around, and could see that everything looked healthy.  It's amazing to see their little fingers and toes, heartbeat, ribs, etc.  Absolutely amazing.

We wanted to find out the baby's sex, and luckily our baby obliged with some very clear views.  There was absolutely no mistaking that we're having a little boy!  We're really excited, especially to know who our baby is.

For the first time since starting this blog, I have a visible bump!  I didn't show at all for a long time, and although I had started to feel bigger lately, no one else could see a difference.  Suddenly, though, my tummy has popped out into a big baby oval.  It finally looks like I'm pregnant, and just this week I've switched to wearing mostly maternity clothes.  Not many people know that I'm pregnant yet, so it will  be fun to see people's reactions as they see me (and now evidence of baby).

I'm almost 19 weeks pregnant!  Hard to believe that this could easily be about halfway!
