Kristin and I are thrilled to announce that we are pregnant!!! After 7 plus years of marriage, we are very excited about our first young ‘un!
I think we can both say this has been a very surreal experience – well, maybe more for me as my body isn’t changing – yet! I think I’ve done a good job of not trying to keep up with Kristin at the dinner table or snack time AND I’m maintaining my gym routine, so we’ll see. However, we can see the beginnings of a “baby bump” and Kristin keeps me regularly updated with all applicable changes and baby developments. Seems they measure the size of the child by using fruit as a comparison – blueberry, blackberry, avocado….it would be very helpful if there was a “man scale” for those of us with the Y chromosome – i.e. the child is the size of a golf ball, baseball, softball, football, etc.
At the time of this post Kristin is 13 weeks along. The picture above is the 11 week 3D ultrasound – amazing what you can see these days. Kristin has been sleeping a lot, eating a lot and then sleeping some more. All reports from the doc are great – so far so good.
Kristin and I will be using this site to update our progress, thoughts, fears, funny jokes and other ramblings, so stay tuned!!! ETA of this little one is April 8th, 2011.
