In our first ultra sound our little baby looked like nothing more than a jelly bean - so it is so fun to see an actual baby in my belly now! This is her at about 10 1/2 weeks. Aaron and I cracked up to see her just relaxing, flat on her back, mellow as can be. When I was telling my co-workers about it they joked that if she was that relaxed she must have gotten lots of Aaron's genes and not very many of mine! :( The little head is on the left and on the right you can see her little foot in the air. I'm actually a few days ahead of where they thought I was, so they bumped my due date up to December 27th - just 2 days after Christmas and only 1 day after my birthday. It will be a crazy week for us, but I feel just as bad for our ultra-supportive families whose holidays will be interrupted as well. I'm looking forward to being almost done with the nausea - probably only a few more weeks! Yahoo!

Since this was our first normal doctor's appointment, we had some questions for the doctor. I laughed when I realized they all had to do with rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, etc. I was happy to hear that Aaron, dad and I's August backpacking adventure will not have to be cancelled, just modified so I'm only carrying a day pack (10 lbs or less). That sounded great to me - the heavy pack is the only thing I don't really like about backpacking. I've turned Aaron into a pack mule to practice already - he carries most of our climbing gear up the canyon a few times a week. :) Good thing he loves me!
