Jonathan's First Late Night Run

So, as some of you may know, I have been sick with a cold lately. It is a lingering cold that I hope is on its way out. Yesterday I was so frustrated that I decided we needed a humidifier. We first went to Target, but all of the units we would have considered appeared to have been returned. Next stop: WalMart. We purchased a unit from a not-so-well-known brand name.

Yes! We have a humidifier. Let's set it up. Well, little did we know that the directions required us to clean the unit with vinegar and then bleach before using it. We didn't have either. Jonathan made a quick stop to the grocery store to pick some up. Ok, now we are ready. Jonathan sets it up, plugs it in, and lets it "run" a bit before we head to bed. Well, I paid a visit to the bedroom and noticed that the machine was not making any noise and it did not appear anything was coming out of it. We concluded it wasn't working.

I decided to rough it and try to fall asleep. I will admit, I was a whiny baby and coughing up a storm. Next thing I know, Jonathan is on his way out to another grocery store before it closes. I think by now it was around 10:15 or so. A little while later (I'm not sure how long) I wake up to see Jonathan aiming our new working humidifier towards me. I have such a wonderful husband! I love you Jonathan!

What a Difference 3 1/2 Weeks Makes

We had another ultrasound done today. This one was quite involved. It was part of a prenatal screening process. It was amazing to see the difference between this ultrasound and the last one only 3 1/2 weeks ago. The technician needed to get profile views of our baby to take measurements. Our little one did not exactly cooperate the whole time. I didn't care, I liked watching. However, the technician wanted to get her job done and tried to coax the baby into moving by "tapping" me with the ultrasound instrument thing. Anyway, the measurements were taken, and we got quite a few new pictures.

I don't know if I'm seeing things, but it looks like the baby is sucking his/her thumb in this picture:

Here is a picture of our little one waving at the camera ;-)

This is a picture of our little one taking it easy.

We Have a Heartbeat

We had a very short appointment today. We went over test results from the last appointment. The Doctor concluded that I am boring, which is a good thing because there is nothing out of the ordinary ;-) The Doctor then looked for a heartbeat. It seemed to take a while to hear it - but that was just me freaking out, we heard it fine.

Oh, for those of you who are interested, we are between 11 and 12 weeks, which means that our baby is about 2 1/2 inches long. So, grab your chapstick - that is about 2 1/2 inches.
