Melissa is doing very well. The morning sickness has stopped, and she has gained her appetite back (as I type, she is sitting nearby eating strawberry-banana yogurt and crackers). She’s moved into maternity pants, and thinks that her be-band (which allows her to wear her per-pregnancy jeans) is the best thing ever.
Bean has also become quite active; she started feeling light kicks about three weeks ago, and they have increased to the point that I can feel the kicks now too. At this point, we know that as soon as Melissa sits or lays down and gets relaxed, Bean will wake up and start to play.
But, the real reason I am posting this update is that we got our ultrasound this morning! So, I’ve posted the first REAL photos of Bean that have ever been taken! Say hello to Bean Zook!
We still don’t know the sex; we’re going to keep it a surprise. We’ve been finding a lot of clothing with animals on it, so we’re avoiding the whole “Daddy’s Girl” or “Daddy’s Little Guy” stuff at this point (even though its really cute…).
