Yes, it is true! While word has been leaking out for the last week, I wanted to make it completely public.
So for all of those that haven’t heard yet, Ali is building a baby! Ali just eclipsed her first trimester and is doing great. Of course she has been perpetually nauseous, without ever tossing her cooks, and generally feeling lousy, but the excitement has kept her thriving. I suppose the fading from the fatigue of a fetus sucking all the life-juice out of you incessantly is helping her stay rested. Considering what light sleeper she is I have considered this to be a definite plus.
Even more exciting, we got to see the little critter today at the first ultrasound! The little thing was squirming all over the place and couldn’t sit still, making it a little tricky for the technician to get a lot of quality looks. I don’t know where it gets that behavior from? Still, the doctor was patient and extremely positive. So despite all the movement everyone was able to gather enough data for all the tests that the pros need to run. But we got to see it! And so do you. Get a load of the little baby.
So it is definitely real and fills me with a heady cocktail of excitement and terror. Ali on the other hand has a paradoxically thrilling calm about her. Thus, together we are making quite a combo. Best of all, it looks like everything is progressing normally, which is the best news of all.
