Baby looks like a BABY!!!

We had our second ultrasound today and it's amazing the difference 6 weeks can make! The baby actually resembles a *baby* now...we were both really surprised. There's a head, legs, arms...all the important stuff :) We got a few profile shots and that last picture is a foot print. A foot print!! is that the cutest thing EVER? *sigh*

The baby was moving around so much. I know its still really tiny, but its kind of hard to imagine that something the size of a plum (thanks for the food image, "the bump"!) is moving around that much and I don't feel any of it.

Well, two more months until the next one and then we get to find out the sex! It's going to be a loooong two months...

On a totally unrelated note, I feel like I'd be in deep trouble if I didn't at least say...


Fingers crossed for this Sunday :)

Why not start this latest post with one of my favorite Dr. Cox lines of all time...

Dr. Cox: Oh, my God! I just gagged and vomited at the same time. I gavomited.

I have to say, I've been very lucky in terms of morning sickness. I've made it through the entire first trimester without being affected really. But I will say my already sensitive stomach was truly put through the ringer. My stomach would turn at the tiniest thing. So, as I joyfully reach the end of my vomit-free first trimester, I thought I'd share a list of things that nearly pushed me over the edge on several occasions:

1. The Metro (or death train, as I now like to call it)
2. The smell of exhaust
3. My 30 going on 13 complexion. Seriously, I'm 30 and pregnant. Monster zits seem SO wrong. And nauseating :)
4. The god awful images that came and continue to come out of Haiti...*shudder*
5. Poor dental hygiene - it's called floss, folks.
6. The democratic party of Massachusetts...just saying

Phew, nearly lost it a few times there, but I survived! I'm also happy to report that my energy is officially back...YAY :) I heard from so many people that one day it would just magically be back and I'll be damned, you were all right! I missed the Daily Show so much and now I'm back to being up past 9:00 pm so I can watch again (which really helps me laugh off #6 on my list!). If you didn't catch it, do yourself a favor and check out the "magic negro" bit from last week. Comedy GOLD!

On a total sidenote, but related to the title of this post. Is anyone else watching Scrubs: Med School? Now that JD is gone, we've been really enjoying it. Figures that just when they find their groove, it's time to say goodbye. Again. How many times can one show have a series finale? Sheesh.

And baby makes three...

I decided to go ahead and give this whole blog thing a whirl after finding out we're expecting our first baby! No time like the present, especially considering we have a million things to do and I'm sleeping approximately 23 hours a day. Details, details. However, with many of our family and friends being so far away from us, I wanted a place to share the fun/exciting/mind-numbing details quickly and easily.

I'm certain I'll include other details of daily Sawicki life here as well, but I promise to try to keep my political ranting to a minimum. But please note, I said *try* but probably will rant incessantly on doesn't seem right to break a promise on my first posting. But to counter any ranting, I'll try to include some delicious recipes or other fun stuff like that.

So, on with the show! I really have no idea what I'm doing (which I'm sure will become painfully clear, if it hasn't already) so please bear with me.

Here's our first and only picture of the peanut so far (please forgive the poor quality, it's a picture of a picture and best I could do.) The picture is from about the 6 week mark and I'm hoping by the end of this week, we'll have a new one! By this Saturday I'll be 12 weeks along and nearly to the end of the utter exhaustion, so I hear. I'm skeptical but keeping hope alive :)

I also thought I'd also include this fantastic link that was sent to me by April last week. Absolutely hysterical, and since I started this post with such a cheesy saying as "and baby makes three" it seemed particularly appropriate.

Enjoy! And if you have an hour or two to spare, check out their other videos.
