Upditily-date, neighbor

My appointment with the perinatologist for my 3-D sonogram is set! June 19th will be the day where we will hopefully find out the sex (come on little baby, spread those leggies!) and get another cool photo or two. I can't wait! In the meantime, I keep getting bigger and bigger and feeling better and better (thank goodness!). Still a little bit tired during the day, still peeing like a race horse, still have strong 'growing pains', but my allergies are subsiding and I'm gaining weight, cos darn it, food tastes good again!

On the other front, uni for Andreas and me is coming to an end (for this year at least) and we are very much looking forward to spending more time together (actually we'll be doing our research in the same place, not having too much fun), not having to teach!, frolicking in the summer sun, setting up the nursery and spending more time with the family in San Diego.

Oh, and this is my baby gut at 18 weeks, 3 days.

Baby gut

This is my baby belly at 15 weeks and 5 days. Me so sexy.

All I wanted was a backrub...

... but, I also got this! Yey! Andreas and I couldn't be happier. I'm currently 14 weeks and 5 days with a due date of Oct 30th. The first three months were pretty rough with "all day sickness" (whichever tool coined the term "morning sickness" was totally off!), food aversions and fatigue. Now that those are mostly a thing of the past, I have quite severe allergies... thank you swollen nasal membranes. Oh, and as a side note, I am allowing those of you who haven't experienced this yet (or ever!) to be blissfully ignorant to some of the more subtle symptoms of childbearing. Ahhhh, so far, being pregnant is truly a godsend.

P.S. This ultrasound is from week 9 and 6 days. The next one will be 3-D (where I also believe we'll find out the sex).
