Welcome to our baby blog!

We're having a baby! Today we are 11 weeks and 3 days pregnant and our due date is August 18, 2009. So far this has been a very easy pregnancy (knock on wood). No sickness - just tired. We are totally thrilled. Three weeks ago we had an ultrasound and saw our little kumquat.

So what's with the kumquat?

I have been reading a website that follows the growth of the baby weekly and usually compares it to a fruit or vegetable. Only it doesn't pick something that you see everyday. Last week it said "your baby is the size of a kumquat." I actually know what a kumquat is, but I wasn't exactly sure how big it is. This week it says the baby is the size of a fig. Again . . . hmmm. I had fig on pizza recently (mmm . . . I still dream about that pizza), but still what size is it really!? I can't wait for next week as our fruit salad continues to grow. Before long it will be the size of a kiwano!
