13 weeks

First pic of the bump...pregnant or just pudgy? Can't wait to show a little more and have it be obviously pregnant and NOT "wow, did she eat too much pizza this weekend or what?!?" Anyone know where I can get a "I'm not fat, I'm pregnant" t-shirt?

9 weeks pregnant

Our first doctor's appointment and sonogram was back in February. Here's Brony's first picture:

Yeah, I couldn't tell what I was looking at either. The black kidney bean taking up most of the pic is the amniotic sac that Brony will eventually fill. Brony is the small gray tadpole in the left side of the black kidney bean. The doc takes certain measurements from the ultrasound and judges the due date on those - and Brony was apparently kinda little in the picture. We were dated at 7 weeks and given a due date of October 9. Since we kinda knew what we were up to back around conception (!!!), and when we got our positive pg test, we're deciding Brony is just a slow grower. By our calculations, our date is Sept 26 and that made me 9 weeks in this picture. All the closer to getting to 2nd trimester and out of the morning sickness.

The Official Blog Naming Contest

My first post on my new blog can be about nothing other than the difficulty in naming a blog! How do you go about picking a name that covers the topic you want to discuss, without backing yourself into a corner where you can't discuss anything else?! My only conclusion was to put it to the masses - and so I launched an email to my most creative friends to help me come up with ideas. I was completely blown away by the responses, and so I felt I must post all the fantastic submissions! To protect the guilty, I will NOT be naming names of those responsible for the slightly less family-friendly submissions, but I laughed at them all the same!! Hope you enjoy them too.
