A Tasty Morsel

A few weeks ago, we awoke to this:

That's right, the faintest little pink line you could possibly see without a magnifying glass. It was so light that I felt compelled to take another test the next day, which produced the exact same result. With the help of peeonastick.com (yes, that is an actual website), I learned that the faintness of the line is not important as long as the color matches.

And so, without further ado, we would like to introduce the newest member of the family. Eddie was known as "Smidgen" in the womb, so in keeping with that theme, our new fetus shall hereby be known as "Morsel" (for now).

Our official due date is January 23, 2011. Morsel did measure a little bit big for that date, and since Eddie was born a little early, I am hoping that maybe Morsel will be too (on 1/11/11 if we're really lucky).

I am currently a little over 8 weeks along and am already enduring the joys of the first trimester. I have been feeling nauseous for the past few weeks, but I don't feel like I have been as sick this time around as I was with Eddie. Of course that could change at any time. I also haven't been nearly as sleepy as I was with Eddie, but that could be because I try to sneak a quick nap when Ed is napping... something that didn't happen the last time around since I worked full time.

All in all, things are going well. I go back to the doctor in 4 weeks for the next check-up. I think they will do an ultrasound at that time, too, but it will still be too early to see the baby's sex.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Enjoy having one child while you can. Your whole world will change when the second one comes. You will probably hear that a lot in the coming months.

Woohoo! Congrats you guys! Dave, you are the paterfamilias. Here's hoping that baby number two is rebellious and turns out to be a Superman/Red Sox fan!

Yeah!!!!!! I'm so excited for you. I can't wait to find out the gender of little morsel. Your due date is the same as my sister Kate's. I hope you get the cool birthday though. My sister will probably have hers in February because she tends to go way over due.

YayYay! Maybe he and Kyle could share a birthday(22nd).. although I would definitely try for 1/11/11

Congratulations. That will be okay to have another January baby in the family but perhaps you could have planned for another month where there weren't so many.

We were actually aiming for October, but it didn't turn out so well. At least it isn't June, though.
