12 weeks today!

Almost out of the first trimester and getting close to “going public.”  We had another ultrasound yesterday and everything looked great– Mulberry was measuring right on schedule and had a heartrate of 171 beats per minute.  It looked much more human than a few weeks ago, too!

Trouble is feeling pretty good– she never really had morning sickness.  She’s still more tired than usual, gets full faster, and has some different food preferences, but that’s all.  I know she doesn’t feel fantastc but she looks absolutely gorgeous to me.  

There are moments where it’s all starting to feel more real, and also moments where it still feels completely unbelievable that we are having a baby.  A baby.  Next Mother’s Day, we’ll be mothers.  Amazing.

In other news, there is a tentative sentencing date for the drunk driver who hit me, in mid-August.  It could still get pushed back again, of course, but I’m hopeful that it this really is getting closer to all being behind me.  Both legs do still bother me on a more frequent basis than I would like, but there’s really nothing in my daily life that I can’t do.  And my surgeon doesn’t need to see me for a year!
