And now for the baby pictures

Okay, so I suppose this would technically be a fetus picture. Whatever. It's about 9 weeks old, and is supposed to be born on October 1st (though, knowing my family's tendency toward 10-month first pregnancies, I'm doubting that will happen). R's brother said we'd be able to see a shrimp, but the nurse said that it is now to the stage that looks like a gummi bear. It has also been referred to as the size of a peanut (medical assistant) and a dog biscuit (R).

I also need to start hitting the treadmill daily. Apparently you're only supposed to gain about 5 pounds in the first trimester but, two months along, I've already gained 10. Whoops.

On a side note, I nearly forgot to remove my name and medical record number from the photo. Phew! Quick save.

Mousse and Java agree with R... definitely biscuit sized. The little training biscuits. My heart is all aflutter with seeing the very first picture of my niece or nephew :D

Yeah, it was pretty neat. I even got to see it's heart beat on the ultrasound. Of course, I promply chuckled with delight and jiggled the ultrasound wand, losing the image.

The dog biscuit analogy is awesome. You hear so many 'Peanuts' and 'Gummi Bears', but not so many biscuits. Woo!

I'm so happy for you. =)
