my little baby bump! That's right, I said baby bump.
The Carlisles are very proud to announce we're having our first baby! Due date is Feb. 9, 2008. I was going to preface this post with one of those "tune in tomorrow for a big announcement", but I figured that would be too easy. I have been holding out on your for 17 whole weeks, but I could do so no longer.
Here's a photo of me at 15 weeks:
See it? It's there..and bigger now at 17 weeks. I'm still wearing my regular jeans, but we'll see how long that lasts. Now my recent crafting/sewing binge probably makes more sense. Since we found out I've gone into major nesting mode - MAJOR nesting mode. Like I basically gave Forest a list of things that need to be done around the house before the baby comes because I know they won't happen afterward.
So far I've been feeling pretty good besides some intense exhaustion during my first trimester and crazy cravings for Maruchan Cup of Noodles and Ramen. I hear MSG is really good for developing fetuses....
We have an ultra-sound appt. in a few weeks to (hopefully) find out whether we have a little Mr. or Miss on our hands. Forest and I have a non-monetary bet going. Can you guess what I think it is? Read "think" as "want".
In other news, I shot a beautiful wedding on Saturday and pretty much spent the rest of the weekend recovering. I didn't think being pregnant would really affect shooting that much, but after 9 hours on my feet with my 20 lb camera in my hands and barely any food I was spent. The photos that I've seen came out great and I look forward to showing them to you later this week.
Yay for babies!
