So we're hoping this blog becomes a way of keeping all our family and friends updated about the excitement that comes with our newfound roles of "Parents-to-Be." I'd like to think of this blog in terms of the illustration below (which just cracks me up!).
I WILL be commenting on all the warm, fuzzy, "oh, how cute!" moments of our journey toward becoming parents; and I promise that I WON'T share all the behind-the-scenes, nitty-gritty details that pregnancy has to offer. Which means, frankly, you'll be missing out .... on a lot! Cause so far, this has been the craziest ride I've ever been on, and we've got a LONG way to go!
In all honesty, though, things have been going well. We got to hear the heartbeat at 12 weeks, and Baby M was clocking in around 147-150 bpm. For those of you who didn't get to see the 8 week ultrasound, here is our first pic of Baby M. We will have another ultrasound done in about 8 weeks. So more pics to come!
And for visualization purposes, Baby M was about the size of a raspberry in the above ultrasound picture, and now he/she is the size of a peach. Not a gigantic, hormone-injected peach, but a peach that's smaller than a lemon (that's next week!), yet bigger than a plum.
Hopefully I haven't already broken my promise to not share too much info :) In any case, remember to check back often for updates! Belly pics to come .... when I have something to show. Right now, it just looks like I ate a dozen donuts, which I could totally go for. Oh how I love Dunkin Donuts Munchkins ....
