da da da da, da da...
March 17! That's right, St. Patrick's Day. It's kind of a fun due date to have, especially since the day before is my sweet mother-in-law's birthday. Oh, it feels so nice to know not only that everything is progressing well, but also how far along I am. And now I know what to say when people ask me "so when are you due?" Which, when one is pregnant, is a question one gets asked quite often, of course.
Here's the first picture of our little one. Right now, "Bertie" looks like a little peanut with some nubbins for arms and legs, but I still think he/she is quite cute. :)
hi, sweet Baby. We can't wait to meet you!!
*Edit: After several of you commented on the 12 wk 1 days that is shown up in the left-hand corner (which I hadn't even noticed!) I was curious as to why it was different than my measurements too, so I looked up "gestational age" (GA) on Wikipedia. Apparently the GA can be different than the actual measurements, and not as accurate because it means something entirely different. You can read about it here for a clear explanation, if you'd like. So, basically, since 9 weeks is the measurement, that's how far along I am, NOT 12 weeks. :)
