First...the obligatory belly shot. This one was taken at the end of the 12th week, and I will try to be good about taking one every four weeks.
I can't believe my belly is already so big! I think my extremely short torso is to blame :).
I feel very fortunate that the first trimester of this pregnancy went so smoothly. Perhaps the best thing was that I had no real morning sickness to speak of...thank goodness! However, the main bump in the road was a bit of spotting here and there. I learned that this is actually very common...but this didn't stop me from worrying like crazy each time. The silver lining was that each time I went in to the doctor, we got to see our little peanut and hear its wonderful heartbeat.
Here are the earliest pics of Baby Shep...looking more like a blob than a baby :).
I think it looks like a sea monkey in these.
I really wish we had a sonogram at the 12-week appointment because the ones I have seen actually look like babies. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until the 20-week appointment...which is also when we will find out if Baby Shep is a boy or girl. Any guesses?
