Baby Girl's Profile
Wednesday, December 12, 2007
One week from tomorrow we find out whether Wombfruit is a Panthers fan (girl) or a Steelers fan (boy)! Now is the time to place your bets...Baby's mommy votes that it's a boy and Daddy 'doesn't have a sense either way'.... so what will it be, ladies and gentlemen?

Anyways, the baby is doing well...at least I haven't heard any complaints from down there. This Sunday something fun happened. Adam and I were watching the Panthers lose (sigh) and I was (of course) petting my bubble tummy when I felt something different. To my amazement there I could feel the baby's rapid little heartbeat! I told Adam to come see if he could feel it too; the smile that spread across his face confirmed I wasn't imagining it. How cool! I checked my What To Expect When You're Expecting book and it said that if you're slender you can feel the little one earlier than would be typical. Very cool.
Did you know that some of your normal activities and foods aren't safe for you or your baby once you become pregnant? Yep, there are lots of fun dos and don'ts in this season. So, for the sake of my Wee Wombfruit (who is 3 and a half inches now! go buddy!), i shall abstain from:
Running a marathon (oh yeah, i had plans...)
Sniffing insecticides (surprise)
Pointing my toes (wha..?)
Smoking (real bummer that one)
Soaking in the hot tub (a.k.a. "the baby boiler")
Eating fish caught near a major city or industrial plant (duh)
and standing in front of the microwave while it is in operation (evil waves..those ones)
These are all according to my doctor and my books written by doctors. It's good to know that God is really the one in control and the Protector of the wee ones and he is 'fearfully and wonderfully' making my child.

Pregnancy Site: "Your fetus is now about three inches long and the size of a peach. Also developing this week: your baby's vocal chords."
Well, I'm out of the first trimester or at least feeling like it. Yeehaw. I'm 13 weeks. Energy hath returned to me and I can cook again! Adam is happy about this news too. (Today I made homemade chicken noodle soup. Care for a taste?)
Big news in Campbellstown: We have a new arrival! Not Wombfruit, thankfully...still a little too shrimpy that one. A little parakeet has joined Bargeory in her tiny barred kingdom. And she's none too thrilled about him. I found him 2 Sundays ago lying in a divot in the parking lot of our apartment. Poor thing was shivering and very weak, but he's made a full recovery. We have named him Jake Leroy Delhomme. We drew names from a jug. Adam wanted to call him El Darno. Thankfully, God is sovereign.
Another pet surprise this past week was Adam's fish Augustine Aurelius getting an internal infection that caused her to swell like she had swallowed a gumball. I'll spare you the details but not the photos. (Coming soon!)

This week knees are developing on the little one as well as teeth inside those bitty gums. Wild!
It's fun to have Baby's picture up on the fridge to show all. It's cool as well to pray for our new kiddo...he/ she is really real!! I pray for the Lord to draw this new heart to Him and to give Baby a tender conscience and a love for the Word. Parenting begins!
So, we have a 1 1/2 bedroom apartment (which we love) that fits us pretty well. However, there will be one more of us sooner than we think and we are now realizing how Baby's stuff is already taking up space...that really isn't there. Well, we'll see how long we stay here. Our lease is up 3 months after Squirt arrives, so we'll likely be moving to another apartment (Please, a little bigger one, Lord!) then if not elsewhere. I'm having fun buckling different things into the car seat in the meantime. Adam and i will be conducting crash tests soon. I'll post results.

There's our squirt. We got to see the tiny heartbeat on Monday at the doctor. It looked like a flashing tic-tac. According to them, I'm eight weeks along and the bambino's heart rate is good. So, we're a little more than halfway thru the first trimester. (Yay! Gettin' tired of being tired.)
It would appear from the picture that Baby's head has issues. (Admit it. You think my baby is ugly. Hey, I thought so too.) Well, rest assured, because Baby is fine. He/she is sorta bent over, a lot like a cashew, and that's normal.
We won't know until week 20 (end of December) whether we will be having a Panthers fan (girl) or a Steelers fan (boy). Looks like our baby's Christmas present from Heaven will be his/her gender...aww. We do plan on finding out what is given. That will be my next ultrasound.
