Baby Mozingo is the size of a sweet potato!
"He" weighs 6.7 ounces, and is about 5.6 inches long!
My uterus is now the size of a cantaloupe!
I always heard (or since I have actually started seeking out pregnancy advice, and reading pregnancy books) that you would start showing overnight. I didn't think I would literally wake up with a baby bump, but it sure does seem that way! I have been taking pictures for myself every week just to see for myself how much I am growing, and this past week has shown some major change! Jason is finally realizing that there IS a baby in there, and is constantly pointing out my growing belly! Maybe in a few weeks people will actually be able to distinguish my bump from what could be mistaken as a beer belly! :o)

We wanted to wait until our first appointment to announce, just to make sure we WERE in fact pregnant, and I wasn't being a hypochondriac-since I've been known to be one in the past :o)
I have now been to TWO appointments, and after about 8 pregnancy tests, hearing the heartbeat, and FINALLY seeing the little thing, I can safely say that I am pregnant :o) The due date is March 22, 2010--I am 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant today!
When we got the ultrasound, the Dr. also gave us a prediction of the sex of the baby, but that is all that it is. She was very hesitant to tell me, but I begged and she finally gave in ONLY after saying that it was a 51%/49% guess--but I think she just said that because she wasn't 100% POSITIVE. To be sure, after doing this for as long as she has been doing it, she can tell the sex of a baby better than that at 16.5 weeks..anyways, her prediction is fine with me, and all I need for the moment! So for now, instead of calling it a "it", it is now a "he"! Hey, I started out as a "he", and in fact I stayed that way until I graced the world with my presence, and I turned out just fine :o)
