One more week till the 2nd trimester...

(Baby is in the top, head on the left)

Yay! I'm just over 13 weeks now and just amazed at the journey so far. At our ultrasound this morning we saw the tiniest of feet kicking around (although I still can't feel anything just yet) - SO cool! It's hard to believe that we are really going to be parents in a few months. I'm looking forward to entering the second trimester; hoping that the morning sickness (persistent nausea is NOT fun) will finally end after going on for almost 7 weeks now, plus hoping I'll start showing more. Right now only my close friends and family can really tell I've got a prego belly versus eating too much holiday junk food (which, by the way, has not been appealing at all, much to my sweet tooth surprise!).

Belly shot - 13 weeks

Peanut and I are still debating about whether we should find out the gender or not. I kind of think it would be nice not to know; of course I say that now, but I know, come time to decorate the nursery or buy cute bitty clothes, I'll want to know. Peanut just plain feels the need to know.

I also found the bassinet I'd like to use for the first few months. The research on it has been quite positive - it's made from sustainable timber, so it is environmentally friendly, and is one of only five cradles to be JPMA Safety Certified. Plus, it folds up, so with the limited space we have here, we won't need to worry so much about storage and can use it for future children AND travel! Comes with the matress and a fitted sheet, too. It's the Cariboo Folding Bassinet (the bag part is easy to remove and machine wash/dry):

So, yes, Baby Mania has taken over most of my day around here, but I am working with four brides and plotting out a new business plan for the next five years (a storefront sounds GRAND). I know, I know, still need to finish my website...
