12 Weeks

I survived the first trimester (almost: 1 and a half weeks to go, technically).

Actually, I cannot even claim to have been that sick, although week 11 was rough again after a nice break there for a week or two. 

Really, it’s just hard to keep up with blogging what with work and all: and here I thought I would always be a good little blogger — yeah right!  Hats off to all the mom bloggers out there.

But you have all been so lovely, leaving comments here and there making sure we were alright, and we are.  We’re especially giddy today since all looked so good at our NT scan/12 week ultrasound.  Check out our littlest sprout:

You see those long legs? I bet I’ll be feeling those kicks REAL soon.

Sprout’s heartbeat was a healthy 158 bpm and the NT measurement came in at 1.5 or so millimeters, which is a good thing they say.  Now we wait 3 more weeks for the second set of blood tests and hopefully our minds as to risk will be put to ease!

Second trimester here I come!

    YAY!!! 1st tri is almost over =) Glad to see you back… isn’t it crazy how just a couple of weeks ago he/she was only a couple cms big? And now you have a baby-shaped baby =)

    Well, here’s hoping your 2nd tri will treat you better!!! Meanwhile, I feel like I’m going back to my 1st tri… with the exhaustion + backache + swelling + constant kicking from the baby throughout the night to wake me… He truly is preparing me for motherhood, already keeping me up at night =)

    Thank heavens everything is OK — I was *worried* till your note to Butterscotch this week. (Though I did wonder if school starting played a part … can’t IMAGINE how people manage to work and gestate at the same time!!) Glad to see Baby Q looking so hale and hearty!!

    Oooh Leah: tell me what you think!!! We’ve had a lot of guesses thus far, most of them guessing the same way…we can’t wait to find out for real!
