What about me?
I realized that my family blog turned into Tyler & Nicole's blog very quickly. So here's a little update about me. I am now about 10 1/2 weeks pregnant (25% of the way done!!) and I'm already starting to show! I didn't start to show until about 5 months with Tyler and probably 4 months with Nicole. This is way sooner than I expected. I was afraid I was just getting fat (I haven't been throwing up my food this time), but I've actually lost 5 lbs, so I guess it's all baby. I'm shocked and amazed that I already look pregnant, but there isn't much I can do about it. According to babycenter.com, our baby is about the size of a kumquat. Unfortunately, I don't really know what a kumquat looks like, so I had to look it up. According to Wikipedia, it's about 3-5 cm long, 2-4 cm wide. I really shouldn't be showing with such a tiny, little thing in me, but apparently this kid has other plans. I have all of these nightmares about having twins or something, but I guess I shouldn't worry about that too much. I have my first doctor appointment next week, so I guess I'll find out for sure then. The good news is, while I feel really horrible all day long, I am able to keep my food down so I can function like a normal human being (mostly). We have had some negative feedback on the names that we like, so if you have any great name suggestions, we would love to hear them. Ultimately, we'll just name this baby whatever the heck we feel like it, but ideas are always nice. Tomorrow I'll try to force Ben to give an update on himself so that you guys can see how great he's doing.
