My First Post

I am finally going to break in this blog. I have had it sitting here empty for weeks, not knowing how to get it started. So, I'm just going to jump in and do it!

Juan and I are really excited, happy and a bit nervous about the change that is coming soon to our lives. Our whole family is very excited - these babies will definitely be spoiled rotten!

I am now about 17 weeks along and I'd have to say that this is probably the hardest part of the pregnancy so far - not physically, but mentally. I feel totally fine (knocking on wood!!) but have not been able to feel the babies move yet (at least I don't think I've really felt it). I wish I had a little window so I could look into my belly to see how everything is going.

Speaking of a window into the belly - I have my 'big' ultrasound in 2 weeks, so I should be finding out whether we're expecting 2 boys, 2 girls or 1 of each! I'm ready to start shopping and working on choosing names, so I'm really excited about this appointment! If you haven't already, go and vote in the poll on the right side of the screen. There's not a place to leave your name or a comment on the poll, but feel free to leave a comment on one of my blog posts with your guess so I'll know who guessed right ;) Just to keep the playing field even - at my 13 week appointment the doctor guessed 2 boys and at my 15 week appointment he guessed one boy/one girl.

According to one source ( the babies are the size of onions this week. They're about 5.1 inches long from crown to rump (top of the head to their bottom) and weigh about 5.9 ounces! I'm okay with them being the size of an onion - I don't love to eat onions. A few weeks ago they were the length of a taco shell (from head to toe - no, they're not shrinking) and I had a major problem eating tacos for a few days... and yes - it was a problem going without tacos for a few days. :)

Hmm, what else...

I have officially transitioned into maternity clothes. My 'old' pants no longer zip or button, so I'm now all about the elastic waists and sundresses. I need to take some 'belly' pictures to post on here... maybe I'll start that this weekend.

My first trimester wasn't too bad. I was pretty tired and didn't feel great in the evenings, but I think I had it pretty easy! I started feeling pretty "normal" again about 3 weeks ago. I still try to get in an afternoon nap when I can - I know I won't be sleeping very much for the next several years.

Future Family Photo?

We've been given several name suggestions - our current "favorites" are Paul and George. That way we'll have a Ringo (dog), John (Juan), Paul and George in the household. ;) No, we won't be naming our children Paul and George. I'd feel too much pressure to change my name to Yoko or Linda to fit into my own family.

Well, that's all I've got for today! Maybe there will be some fun weekend adventures or photo sessions to blog about soon.

I love the name story...I had neighbors named Matthew, Mark, and they named their dog Luke so it would be complete. It turned out Luke was a female so she became Lukie, but we all loved the idea!

Stumbled onto your blog by clicking from one blog to another...what a wonderful idea to start journaling your new family adventure.

Best wishes to all of you...I may check in every once and awhile to see how it's going!
