Bah head cold!

I've been sick the past couple of days. Went to bed Monday feeling a bit blah and slept about 4 hours I think... My sinuses started going nuts, and then had the worst sinus headache all Tuesday and a chunk of Wednesday, so took Tuesday and Wednesday off work. I've barely slept all week, and still feel rather congested, but at least I'm getting a few hours of sleep at a time now - this is obviously preparing me for impending motherhood ;)

Another earthquake

We felt our first earthquake back in early March and were quite excited as it was the first quake in the 18 months we'd been in the Bay Area.

Well we just felt our second. Details from USGS Earthquake Centre are:

Magnitude - 3.4
Date-Time - Sunday, May 20, 2007 at 4:10:19 PM
Location - 37.363°N, 121.729°W
Depth - 6.3 km (3.9 miles)
Distances- 9 km (5 miles) E (94°) from Alum Rock, CA
13 km (8 miles) NE (49°) from Seven Trees, CA
15 km (9 miles) E (80°) from San Jose City Hall, CA

This one was a lot closer than last time (about 35k from us), but smaller. So it was louder, and more sudden, but didn't last long.

It's a boy!!!!

We had the ultrasound tonight and it's a boy!!!! It was very cool to watch, and so much fun to see him bouncing around :)

Here's a couple of pics! It's late now so will post more tomorrow.

Kickity kick kick!

I've had a lot of false alarms when it comes to baby movement - I made Andrew feel my belly when I thought it was moving and it was very exciting until my belly gurgled - turns out it was my digestive tract.... oops!

But in the last week or so I've felt a little movement a couple of inches below my belly button, and it was different feeling to the false alarms I've been having. Today it was stronger and more regular, and there was no gurgling or anything like that so I'm PRETTY confident it's junior kicking away :)

The spot where I'm feeling it makes sense. At my last 2 ultrasounds, the baby's been lying sideways with its head at my right hand side, and it's about 12 cm long from head to bum, so where I'm feeling the movement seems about the right spot.

It was pretty cool, the little one was kicking on and off all day! Hopefully junior does it some time soon when Andrew will be able to feel it!

3 days until we find out the sex!

Belly photos

Belly at 9 weeks - just as it first started popping out a wee bit

And now at 17 weeks! Our neighbour Christina lent me a pair of maternity pants she doesn't need at the moment, and they go over the belly. They're so much more comfy with no waistband digging into the belly, but boy do they make me look pregnant!!! :)
