It's a....

If you can't see it, the frosting inside the cake is blue. We had family and a few friends over to "unwrap" the gender. It was a great excuse for a holiday open house and a chance to continue to celebrate with friends and family our progress in this journey. And, it's official, we really do have a defenseman in there.

We are officially halfway through the pregnancy. At 20 weeks, I have gained about 15 pounds, my stomach is now measuring 21cm and #3's heart is still beating about 150 per minute. I am finally feeling better. Most of the queasiness is gone--it only makes an appearance when I overdo it and am way too tired.

My goal for the new year is to try to do pre-natal yoga or a gym workout three times a week. I have this great trainer who is trying to make sure that my body is ready for birth and motherhood.

Meanwhile, I am just going to try and enjoy this holiday and appreciate how fortunate we feel to finally be on our path to parenthood. I know that there are still several of you out there who are still waiting for your miracle--you have all my holiday wishes that 2011 will bring you what you desire.


  1. YAY!!! A little boy :) I am so happy for you. We plan on doing a cake reveal like that once we get our referral for our family & friends!

  2. I would have loved to see your Dad's face!
    Blessings, Val

  3. Congratulations, Vanessa. Very happy for you and your husband. Trina and I were talking about getting together for dinner after the new year sometime. Hope to see you. Can't wait to see you ladies with your "bellies"!
