I had some weirdness in the beginning of my pregnancy that was later found to be because of a low-lying placenta. As a result, we ended up going in for more ultrasounds than the average pregnant lady to monitor the placenta in hopes that it would move up. The good news is that as of our last ultrasound last week, it has moved up and as long as this baby doesn't stay breech, I have been ok'd to give birth the conventional way and not have to schedule a c-section. The sad news, however, is that we will no longer keep getting ultrasounds, which is something that Joe and I always looked forward to. Not only is it comforting, as a pregnant lady, to physically see that everything is going according to plan, but it's incredibly remarkable to witness the amazing advancements your baby is making in such a short amount of time. We were shocked when the fetus had doubled in size in just 2 weeks (weeks 6-8), and could not believe that at just about 12 weeks later, there was a full-blown baby in there. And last week, I couldn't stop laughing at the thought of the baby barely having any room in there. Pretty crazy, huh?
It's the feet that really make my heart go pitter-patter. They are the exact replica of Joe's feet!

P.S. We've decided to hold off on the "boy or girl" question until the actual birth day. It's been fun to hear everyone's assumptions and why. There are few things people are more certain of than your baby's gender.
