Baby Gee

Some of you know by now that we are expecting a little one to join our family on September 1, 2009. If you know your pregnancy math (which takes a little getting use to!), that means that I am almost on week 11 with our little kumquat (pregnancy books like to compare the size of the baby with fruit). As this is a semi-photography/semi-personal blog, we thought it would be fitting to share the first pictures of our baby with you all. Yep, you guessed it - ultrasounds!

Here is baby Gee at week 6 - heartbeat already going strong and mama starting to feel queasy. Baby is that small little dot - about 2mm long!
And here is baby Gee at week 10. Most of the big organ systems are developed and baby has gone through a growth spurt and is now 1.2 inches long! It's no surprise then that mama's been feeling nauseous and tired for the past month! Baby's head is to the left, you can see the little arms reaching up, and the little legs to the right. Baby has already inherited daddy's restlessness and wouldn't sit still for a good picture. Heartbeat is at 168!
We'll keep you all updated as the weeks progress. I look pretty much the same for now, so there won't be any baby bump pictures for a little while!
