Baby Fever

I've been waiting 9 long weeks to breathe a word of this, but the cat is finally out of the bag as of today. I'm going to be a first-time auntie in June. By the time the little bambino arrives, he or she will be the first new member born to my immediate family in almost 38 years. That's a long, long time, and as you can imagine, my family is over the proverbial moon. This is an enlarged copied-and-pasted PDF image into a jpg of a scan of a print-out of a 3-D ultrasound taken this morning. That is to say, the quality was better on the original, according to my brother (the father-to-be). I promise that I'll try hard not to kill this blog with baby fever. Gestational age today is 11-6/7 weeks, essentially the last day of the first trimester (give/take a week). I've been patiently waiting for the second trimester to begin so I can buy yarn, but I still have to wait until after the new year to learn the gender. Nevertheless, neutral-colored yarn purchasing begins tomorrow.

LA, I am so excited for you. Time's-a-wasting, you better get to knitting because 9 months flies by fast (if you're not carrying the baby, that is).

BTW: I had palpitations when I first started reading your post. It being so close after Thanksgiving and having a turkey baster on hand, I thought you were telling us YOU had the bun in the oven!

so what did you decide to make? For what it's worth, I have to say, I was really happy with this baby sweater

congrats on the impending family member. thank goodness for breeders, because it's people like you and me who make the family tree short a couple branches.

Diane - Haven't decided yet. I'll probably start making decisions on December 26th.

Kitty - Yeah, thank goodness for my brother, because my sister and I are not fulfilling my mother's dream of being a grandmother.

When I started to read your post, I ALSO thought you were going to say YOU were pregnant!
