11 6/7 Weeks

We just came back from our second prenatal visit with our OB. I will be 12 weeks on Friday, which marks the end of the first trimester. Our next appointment is in 4 weeks, during the first week of December. At first this pregnancy seemed to be going by ever sooo slowly. Now it seems that the rest of the year and the second trimester will just zoom by. We will have Thanksgiving before my next doctor visit. We heard Baby's heartbeat today. It took a long time for the doctor to find it, and I joked that Baby was hiding out. He called the Baby a little stinker before it was over. That was sooo funny. All my prenatal labwork came out fine, and they didn't even have to up my thyroid medicine.

It seems so winterlike today, though it was still in the 40's. It was very breezy and cloudy, typical fall weather. We went to lunch at a new pizza place and when we got out, there was a white van parked next to ours. For a sec, I thought it was a sneak attack from Grandma and Grandpa. :) Then I noticed the license plate, wrong county. It was still pretty funny, same color, same make and model, right next to us.

Happy November, everyone. The countdown to Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hannukah has begun.

Glad everything went well at the doctors and that the baby and you are fine.

Jimmy & I are going to be great-grandparents again to a baby girl. She is scheduled to arrive on Jan. 26, 2007. She will be Dylan's little sister.
Erica came over last night trick n treating with Dylan and gave us the news about the sex and the date of arrival.

I can't believe the doctor called your precious unborn child a little stinker! ;)

Thanks for your comforting words about parenting. You're right that sometimes you have to have a 'slack mommy' day to get the energy back to be better again. I don't feel so guilty now!

Glad to hear all was well at your's wonderful that you're having another baby!

Aw, welcome to the world, little stinker! (Funny, that's what Nicky has started calling himself too...that and "string bean")

Happy to hear all is going well and that baby has a nickname already!
