We picked up our newest addition to the family on Saturday–I’d like to introduce you to Koa!
Everything he does is precious! And he’s doing well with potty training and learning his name and commands. I’m SO proud and fiercely protective of him–he is my sweet baby boy.
Kitty is stand-off-ish but has been a really good sport, better than we expected. Kitty will always be my first baby, and I think he is a great big bother. Also, kitty has retained exclusive rights to sleeping in the bed.
I will take and post more (and better) pictures!
**Also, I have a pregnancy update, please feel free to skip this part**
We had our NT scan today at 11w1d. And our measurements were great!
Heart rate: 166 bpm
Measuring: 11w0d (at 11w1d)
NT: 1.0 (under 2.0 is good!)
The US tech was great–she has been doing this for like 30 years. I didn’t have to take my pants off! That was amazing (no dildocam). Instead of a sea monkey, we saw a *baby* jumping around and waving his/her arms! Mr. MLACS and I were both mesmerized and our eyes were glued to the screen. I’m still in disbelief that this is happening–that I am growing my very own baby, just like regular people do.
I’m starting to have a bit of a noticeable bump, but only when I stand certain ways or stick my stomach out. I can see the quizzical look in peoples’ eyes when they catch me at the right angle. I enjoy keeping my secret though.
I’m starting to feel inclined to buy a pair of maternity jeans, but I find the task sort of overwhelming. Our only store here is motherhood, so I’m thinking I’ll order online, and that is daunting because I am tall, curvy, and long-waisted, so I always have to try stuff on. Any suggestions here?
