17 Weeks & Counting

The lump is growing! Sprig is the size of an onion or around 5". I still haven't felt anything move but the doctor said to give it a few more weeks. Our sonogram is scheduled for February 5th so we'll be able to find out if Sprig is a he or she! I've heard guesses from friends and family -- but let's have an official vote. Take the poll to the right and then come back in 2 weeks to see if you guessed right!

I'm going to Texas on Thursday to see my sweet niece Ava (and other friends and family but mostly Ava ;) )! If you haven't goggled at how precious she is lately...please look for the link to the right and check out her blog. She will put a smile on your face for sure.

Can you tell the difference in bumpage?

Update: OK, the chinese gender predictor says it's a boy based on my lunar age. I mean, it is 50% right most of the time, so I guessed boy. I've been craving TexMex and more TexMex -- but that's pretty normal for me ;)

Happy 2009!

We are very excited to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family June 28th! Yes, I am nearly 15 weeks pregnant! Although the news has been leaked to several people already, we just wanted to make it official. Above is Sprig's first picture at around 9 weeks.

So far everything is going well. I didn't really have any morning sickness....only nausea and middle of the night sickness on occasion. Overall I feel really lucky. At our last appointment we heard the heartbeat for the first time (170 bpm!) and I have another appointment next week so hopefully I get to hear it again.

I thought it would be fun to do something creative to announce our news to Chris's family at Thanksgiving....although they didn't really get it, it is a fun memory. You'll have to call us for the whole story but you can only imagine. They were keeping their eyes closed here so they couldn't cheat and read each other's hats.....turns out they couldn't read each other's hats anyway as 'Granddad' got translated to 'Good Ole' Dad' ;) !

Here is the obligatory first bump picture at 13 weeks....and it pretty much looks the same.

Happy New Year everyone! We are more than excited for what 2009 has in store and hope everyone's year is just as blessed!
