So you want an update, do ya?

We're at 14.5 weeks in our pregnancy now - I just had an ultrasound about an hour ago with midwife Peggy and she said the baby is about 10" long. TEN! That seems so weird to me. I see changes in my belly, but I don't expect some stranger on the street to look at me and say, "My, you must be pregnant!" That would be weird.

Editing is going well, or at least getting better. I enjoy what I'm working on right now, but it's so hard to stay awake :) I find that that's my greatest struggle - which, if that's it, then no problem, right?

I'm still working through some morning sickness, but I try to remember that every time I throw up it's just a good reminder that I'm still pregnant! That's really the only way to be positive when you have toast coming out of your nose.

Nate's hecka busy. He's surviving on the triple grande vanilla lattes I get him from Sbux/other workplace. I think that this week alone (so far) he has to write up and send out six bids. He's a busy man! If you want any painting done, and you want him to do it, I urge you to call him SOON. I love watching him at work, though - he's so efficient at and proud of what he does. He has a crew working for him right now, so at this very moment, he's working in his office lining up jobs and his guys are finishing painting a house. It's wonderful when everything flows so smoothly!

I take off for California this week. One of my down-south cousins is getting married so I'm going to his wedding. Even though it's now June, there's no sun to speak of in Oregon! It's still very dreary here, so I can't wait to see the sun shining! Oh, and when I get back from California, it will only be about two weeks (end of June) until we find out the sex of the baby...ACK!

By the way, Happy June! Can you believe it??


P.S. This was the first ultrasound we got of this pregnancy - I hope to have a new one for you next week.

Umm, beginning of second trimester...don't you mean 10 centimeters? If the bayboo was 10 inches NOW, you'd be giving birth to a 6-foot,180-pound fetus in October. Ouch.

Nope, I mean ten inches. We're well beyond the cm stage. I found the dimensions shocking as well, and questioned Peggy thoroughly on it - and I will again when I see her next Tuesday. It's confusing to me since everything I'm reading is telling me the baby is like 4-6 inches long...

I agree that is confusing... every pregnancy calendar and book I have says that at 14.5 weeks your baby should be 10 CM (4 inches). I'm 25 weeks and my baby is only 9 inches. However, you might ask your midwife if she is measuring the baby head to toe or "crown to rump" as they often do, because that can make a difference! Either way, the important thing is that it has a heart beat and I'm so excited for you!

I'm pretty sure she's measuring head to toes, as if the baby were stretching out full length...
