We have been pretty good about not sharing beyond immediate family and were all geared-up to start telling people once we completed the first trimester. Last Friday (10/8), I woke up to the above announcement on my “what to expect” iphone app. Going online, however, we realized that there is an astonishing lack of consensus as to when the first trimester ends and the second begins. Some say twelve weeks, others say week thirteen or fourteen. We’re going with week thirteen, which is today! So… YAY we’re having a baby!!!

All the excitement has really been getting to me. So, despite all the controversy about the intelligender tests (accuracy is said to range from 0-80% with the company claiming 80%), we bought one, and the result was “girl”. Positive all along that we are having a girl, one of our besty couple friends bought us our first little outfit. Adorable!
We’re going to repeat next week. We won’t know, of course, until our 20 week ultrasound, but it is really fun!
We had our ten week ultrasound today, and, this time, JH was able to join us. It was unbelievable how much had changed in four weeks. No longer is our little fetus a vibrating piece of rice. It is now shaped like a baby and squirming around like a hyper little gummy bear and waving it’s arms and legs as though it was doing jumping jacks. Heartbeat was strong and doctor said that all the movement was best indicative of how well the pregnancy is progressing. It was an unbelievably powerful and emotional day.
