New Beginnings...

Offspring is officially due on April 30, 2008! Vanessa is nearing the end of the first trimester and is very glad. She hopes that the nausea and indegestion will subside soon. She has not gained any weight, because of it. But there is plenty of time for that later on.

We did have one scare about 3 weeks ago when Vanessa experienced some spotting. However, after an exam and ultrasound, everything turned out to be okay. The worse part was that Matt was out of town and couldn't be there for our first ultrasound. The hospital provided one picture, so that Matt wouldn't feel completely left out.

We finally had the opportunity to watch our baby together on Tuesday via ultrasound. It was jumping and flipping already. We think that it knew we were watching and it was just showing off. We were given some more pictures, but all we can make out is that there is something there.

The sex of the baby will be determined some time in early December... just in time to start buying him or her Christmas presents. We are just excited to be able to call it something other than "it".

No fair Amber, I was going to tag Vanessa. Maybe you should think of 12 things instead of 6. HEHEHEHE, just kidding.
