Week 13

So we're through the 1st trimester (somewhat officially). Bea is still feeling kind of tired (ok, very tired) and the normal ups and downs in her stomach haven't completely subsided, but we're hopeful the end to that is near.

In related news, we met the midwife yesterday for the first time. Very nice lady (very short, Barbara feels tall now). We went through all the rigamarole about family history (apparantly dad's isn't that important right now, which is fine by me what with the high cholesterol and all) and we listened to the baby's heart beat. It took some doing, the little rascal kept moving on her, but we eventually found the hummingbird zooming away in there at 160 beats a minute. Very cool.

All seems well so far. I'm going to try and scan the first Ultrasound from last month so I can post it in the next few days (Baby's first picture!!)

Yes, we're excited.
