Baby Moir Update

Well, it's official. Marc and I make super cute babies! I am sure that once everyone sees him/her they will agree as well!

About 6 weeks ago we had our first ultrasound due to a baby scare. We were worried and only cared that baby was healthy. This time was different. Not that we didn't want to know if our baby was okay, but we could spend our time at the hospital enjoying every moment, instead of fearing the worst.

Like I said, I am pretty sure that our baby is the absolute cutest thing ever created! And we only had a flat, black and white version of it.

Here are a list of things we got to see/learned about our baby today! (this is mostly for me to remember when I look back on this time in my life, but I am sure you would like to know too)

-Our baby has a big head. Now the tech said it measured big, which apparently is normal. But I like to think it's because Marc has a big head (not a literal one, of course). No, actually what I was really thinking/hoping was that it doesn't grow anymore because the last thing I want to is push out a big headed baby!

-Baby Moir does not like to be woken up early and poked and prodded. On a normal day baby doesn't move around until lunch time and is not active until the evening. So today, poor baby had to get up early and be woken up at 7am to be looked at. Because of this he/she refused for the longest time to cooperate. He/she had its back to the tech for almost the whole time she was looking. Silly baby!

-This baby has the Abrahams' nose. Of course it would. The one thing I didn't like the most about my body and my poor baby gets it! Actually, I have grown in to liking my nose, I am sure baby will too. I talked to my dad this morning and mentioned this very thing, I think he was happy that something of his was passed down!

-Our baby is a mover and a shaker. It was so amazing to see it wave it's arms and kick it's legs! Something so small is so complete. All I can say is amazing!

-We got to see a lot of other body parts (legs, arms, hands, feet, eyes, ears, mouth, heart, spin, rib cage, etc.) It was so amazing (I really need to think of another word).

-Heart beat is 149

-Growth is on schedule, they actually gave us a new due date of May 21 (two days off, so I am not really worried about it)

-Sadly, we did not find out if we are having a boy or a girl. But I think I am okay with that. Baby was being silly (as mentioned before) and making it hard for the tech to see anything down there. I think we will still do the 3D baby thing in the next month or so just in case we can find out.

Anyway, that is the Baby Moir update for today!

Baby Time

Well, this blog won't be a long one. I just thought I would let you all know that Friday (so in two more sleeps) Marc and I will be having our scheduled ultra sound! We are hoping at this appointment to find out what we are having. And of course to check in with baby and make sure he/she is doing well and growing strong!

I will post more after Friday morning!

ps. I didn't mention this, but it's at 7am. Who in their right mind schedules something that early? And to top it off I am not allowed to empty my bladder for at least an hour before hand. Yuck.

Well, it's been a while since we got back from Cuba, however life has just been to busy to write about our time there!

First off I must say that Cuba is a great vacation spot. It's warm, beautiful, the people there are amazingly warm, however the food is awful. I would not recommend this trip to a pregnant woman! (Especially if you are like me and like to munch on things all day long and have certain North American cravings)

Despite the food, Marc and I had a very relaxing time! We spent a few days on the beach, took a boat tour, got bitten by crabs, walked through Havana, and Marc even got to see a local baseball game!

Cuba is truly a beautiful place and rich with history.

Sadly, on day one of our adventure our camera broke.....leaving us with very few picture memories and none to share with you. Actually we do have some pictures saved off of the memory card, but I am sure you all don't really want to see what we look like at 4am (while we were waiting for our flight to leave).

It was a great time, and I am still feeling relaxed from our trip!
