I have jumped on the new baby blog bandwagon and decided to chronicle our adventures via blog to help keep all of our friends and family that are scattered across the country updated! Andrew and I are so excited to add a new member to our family this fall. So far, it has been quite the journey. The beginning was full of highs and lows- I started working with a fabulous new PR firm in Portland, I was down and out sick for two months and Andrew went missing in the Aspen mountains. But life moves on and here I am at 17 weeks and feeling wonderful!
I went in yesterday for our monthly appointment and heard the heartbeat. It's beating at a healthy 140 beats a minute, which is always reassuring. I haven't felt the baby kick, but am anxiously awaiting that big first. I am definitely showing and wearing maternity clothes. It is a crazy experience to watch your stomach expand outwardly and have zero control over it. I've been doing yoga and hitting the gym regularly to try and keep the weight gain in check, we'll see how that works out!
We go in to find out the sex on May 27 and I am counting the days! This ultrasound picture was during the first trimester at 12 weeks. It's amazing how much detail you can see that early on!
Below is the little onsie I picked out to celebrate my entrance into the second trimester a few weeks back. So far it's the one and only piece we have for the new baby, everything is on hold until we know the gender!
