I'm so crafty, I make people!

11weeks

Omigod - you don't know how hard this was to keep to myself! I have to start telling people now because I will be needing maternity pants in very short order. I'm 11w1d today, and as Andrew puts it, due in the bleakest midwinter - 2/1/11.

This scan was taken yesterday - ignore the fact that it says 10w3d - the baby was very interested in the ultrasound scanner. It didn't matter how the midwife moved the scanner, the baby turned to face it and we couldn't get a profile pic so she could measure the top-to-tail to get the gestational age - it kept on coming up with everything from 10w to 11w. The baby was dancing around and doing somersaults - it was very amusing because I couldn't feel a thing!

Keep your fingers crossed for us - for all of Willow being a surprise and easy pregnancy - we have not had much luck with other pregnancies past Willow. Willow is over the moon - she so wants to be a big sister and keeps telling us that she wants a baby brother.

You just made my day.

Congrats Jo. Sticky vibes in mega waves from me to you.

I'm wishing you stay put baby vibes because the term "sticky baby" grosses me out. Trust me, you'll have a sticky baby soon enough when you're DONE being pregnant. ;-)

Strap in girlie! Spacing them out that far isn't for the faint hearted! You get to "remember" a lot of things you forgot about when the oldest one was that little--LOL!

Congrats!

I do hope Willow continues to feel that way later because she could be a real help to you.
