9 weeks, First Appointment

Welp, it's officially official!

We are due with Deuxième (still working on a suitable nick name this one is "second" en Francais) February 10, 2013.

Our little peanut; heart beating, reclining on his or her little yolk sac, just like a pillow.

I will probably start doing some symptom write ups shortly - I think I started at about 10 weeks with Ev. I am interested to see if things will be different this go round.

So far, nausea, sore boobs (p.s. teething baby nursing already on sore pregnancy boobs? WOWZA.), exhaustion, are all there. Check, check, check.

Oh, and I have gained at least five pounds already.
And my belly is firm.
And starting to look pregnant.

Apparently, my body super enjoys being knocked up. Cool.

Evelyn Rae is ONE TODAY, and I am nine weeks preggo with 'Petit' (it means 'little one' in French. I kinda like it.)

...and this whole thing is
