The Story So Far...

There's not much to tell, really. We found out I was pregnant on a Monday morning in late January. The next day we went out and bought What to Expect When You're Expecting.  I had fun with morning and early afternoon and sometimes evening sickness for most of February, and eventually my OB gave me a prescription for it. Now I can do things little things like work in the morning and use the computer without getting queasy.

The first visit to the OB (at 10 weeks) went well- everything looks good, and we got our first peek at the Nestling.  Ultrasound photos to follow if we can ever get the scanner working.

I'm at 12 weeks now, and What to Expect says that the Nestling is the size of a large, ripe plum.


  1. All I can think of now when I hear about that book is Slate's recent post about it.

    Glad the nausea is going down. Did the cat cuddle at least when you were laid low?

  2. The cat is LOVING how much time I've been spending on the couch. He is king of all the laps.

  3. ... And I just read the article. Interesting, though it doesn't really reflect my experience at all. Maybe I just haven't hit the crazy neurotic stage yet, but I just sort of skip over the stuff that doesn't apply to me and the alarmist fear-questions, and go right to the food recommendations, the advice on dealing with queasiness, bloating, etc, and the blurbs about what fruit they resemble in size this week.
