Baby's First Picture

The doctor's appointment went well last week. Everything is looking good and I am still feeling pretty good, too. Unfortunately Baby Hampton was sleeping during the ultrasound so we had no chance to see if it's a girl or a boy. Hopefully next time we will be able to see and then I can go buy this baby some clothes. The Baby Gap just opened this weekend and I really want to go buy something.
This first picture is of the head (2.8 cm) and I think a profile shot. The baby sort of looks like an alien.

The next picture is a lot clearer (I think). The baby is now 8.2 cm long and according to some website probably weighs about 1.5 ounces. Crazy!

It looks like something is coming out of the baby's mouth in this picture, Roger thinks that is a hand. He got to see a lot more of the ultrasound this time. The doctor turned the monitor around to do all of the measurements, so I couldn't see much of what was going on.
Today starts week 15, so I will get Roger to take a belly picture for me later today.

14 Weeks

After another long trip we are finally back home and trying to get settled in. I am feeling much better and I think if I could get over jet lag and get some good food I would probably be feeling even better.
We left the good old US&A on Monday, March 10, but because one of our planes was delayed in Minneapolis and the fact that it's just a long stinkin trip we didn't make it back until Thursday, March 13.
While in the States I did quite a bit of shopping for me and not very much for the baby. I really meant to buy a bunch of baby stuff, but it's all pink or blue and for now we don't know which color to buy. I did get a few onesies and some blankets from my family.

So far I've just gone for the green and yellow, but I hope that we can soon be buying pink or blue. We are going to the doctor tomorrow (if we actually get up and get around to it) and there's a chance she might be able to tell. If not, we will have her check again when we go for my next visit at 18 weeks. I added a poll on the side, so vote and let us know if you think the Hampton baby is a boy or a girl.

I took advantage of my time at Kentucky Oaks Mall and got a ton of maternity clothes (thanks mom!) and ordered a few more things online.

I don't really need to wear any of my new clothes, but I really want to! For now I am able to wear most of my pants with my lovely Bella Band. The picture I took this week doesn't really look too different from two weeks ago, but I can definitely tell a big difference. I can no longer comfortably button any of my pants and I can look at myself and tell a big difference.

Check back later this week, we will hopefully get some ultrasound photos when we go to the doctor and who knows, we may even find out if it's a girl or a boy. Don't forget to go ahead and vote!

12 Weeks

Sorry for the delay in updates and pictures, but 40+ hours of traveling and re-entering American culture have sort of thrown us off a little bit. Anyway, here's the new picture.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but the belly has definitely gotten bigger. Most of my pants are uncomfortable now, but thanks to my new Belly Band I can still wear all of my blue jeans!
I have taken advantage of being in the States and have stocked up on maternity clothes and tried to start buying a few baby things.

Of course when Roger saw this at Wal-Mart we had to buy it. Baby Hampton is gonna be a Wildcat!
I have been feeling quite a bit better this past week and I am hoping that I am past most of the sickness. I'll try to update more often once we are back in The Islands.
