    The first trimester is officially over tomorrow so we feel comfortable spreading the news. (for those few of you I'm friends with on FB, please no congratulations there, we have friends getting married on Saturday and we don't want to steal their thunder, we're doing the FB announcement on Sunday)

    Anyhow, we lost the first one at five weeks so we were just over the moon when we went in for the first ultrasound this go 'round. The peanut did a little dance for us and the heart beat was strong and fast. We're going in for another ultrasound this coming Wednesday, along with another blood draw. In two weeks we'll know if there are any genetic issues as well as the sex.

    We do have names picked, but my wife has decreed that we are not to share that until the baby is born.

    Anyhow, the adventure begins! :hyper:

    Cute kids!!! We're hoping for a daughter. Odds from my side favor a boy, odds from my wife's side favor a girl... I'll be happy either way as long as all the parts are there and the kid is healthy. :) We're going in for another ultrasound on Wednesday, can't wait to get another look at the peanut.

    We just had our second one two weeks ago and are doing the newborn thing all over again. Fun times lie ahead for you, I promise.

    My favorite piece of advise so far has been 'Don't throw the baby. You're going to want to at some point. Don't do it.' Lol!

    My advice, for what it's worth, is to ignore any and all advice you are given. Including this advice.

    Your gut will tell you what to do and when to do it.

    I will also say that when you get to the point where you think "What am I going to do now? I was totally unprepared for this." You are in the right place.
