Ok, so I have been thinking about starting a blog for a while now. And since 2011 looks to be a pretty exciting year for us, now seems like as good a time as any to get this thing going. So, here we have the official Rowe blogspot. Please bear with me as I get used to this whole blogging thing.
We found out on New Years' Day that we are expecting our first child. We're due at the beginning of September. I'm super excited about the timing, as September 4th will be the four-year anniversary of our first date, and three years since we got engaged. How cool would it be to have our baby on that day too?!?
I am 17 weeks prego as of Friday. I had a check-up same day; pretty boring run-of-the-mill, blood pressure, weight, pee in a cup type stuff. I did get to hear our little nubbin's heartbeat which was strong and baby was pretty active.
Some basic baby stats at 17 weeks: a little over 5 inches long, and about 5.9 ounces in weight. Baby has mastered some simple reflexes like sucking, swallowing and blinking. My belly has started to pop out in the last week or two and I am definitely "showing."
Oh, and a little about nicknames; we have been calling the baby "nubbin" since about 8 weeks when the arms and legs were just little buds starting to grow and it kind of stuck. Lemondrop was another nickname a couple weeks ago when he/she was the size of a lemon. Creative, eh?
Everyone is waiting so patiently to find out the gender of our little one. We have decided to go ahead and find out before the big day. Our ultrasound is scheduled for Monday, April 18th. :-)
I am so excited to share this with all of you. I plan to keep updated with baby and non-baby related posts. I hope I will be able to share a lot more info here than facebook. I will work on posting some picture soon too. Yay! This is gonna be fun! Welcome to our blog.
