Sharing Different Heartbeats

The jig seemed to be up a long time ago, but I guess if this is the first you're hearing of it, here you go: at the turn of the year some time, I will be giving birth to a baby. It's going to be all exciting with fireworks and horns and 21-gun-salutes and whatnot, I assure you.

We won't know whether it is a boy or a girl until approximately August 27th at 3:30pm MDT, but you are free to speculate, place bets, etc (as long as all winnings go to me).

Sam is very, very excited to be a father. He has been a good sport about making sure he is at all the appointments and has even voluntarily read a parenting book. It's kind of cute, but naturally I would think that. 

As for me, I'm 15 weeks and starting to show a little bit, but I still mostly feel like I look like Senor Cardgage (n00bs watch this: ).

But, it's better than a beer belly and a combover, because the baby is adorable. We watched it kicking and punching and battling a fierce case of the hiccups at our last ultrasound, and we all had a funny laugh at the babe's expense.

That *about* sums it up!

PS I have some cute/hilar pictures of both Sam's and our families' reactions (via Skype) when I/we told them the news, but we don't have Internet and they're on my computer, so that'll have to wait. In the mean time, here is a slightly recent (maybe 2 weeks ago) photo of cross-eyed moi:

Hurrah! I think the first ultrasound is so cool. That's when it starts getting real for me.

You think you look like Senor Cardgage? No probalo. Just wear pre-1990s maternity clothes.
