Week 10 Update!!!

By Paul at 11:26 am on Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Wow! my baby has vital organs now..  This is too exciting, Baby Mudhar has a fully formed and functional brain.. well I wonder what he is thinking  hehe. We have been getting a lot of people trying to guess the sex of the baby from “signs” they see, and hear about what Mira is going through. Will be interesting if they are right, but with choosing a boy or a girl the choices are limited.

“The vital organs — the liver, kidneys, intestines, brain, and lungs — are fully formed and functional, while the head is almost half the length of the entire body. The forehead temporarily bulges and sits high on the head, but later will change into a more human-like feature.” Please read more here.

Maybe we should have some sort of Baby Pool going on..  and you can guess the Weight, Date and Time of Birth and why not the sex too. Leave a comment with your guesses  🙂

Week 9 Update!!

By Paul at 12:55 pm on Wednesday, January 20, 2010

What a roller coaster of emotions Mira has been through this last week. One day feeling GREAT! doing some chores and back in the kitchen cooking, and also finding her appetite. To the next day just wanting to sleep or having aches and pains. I have been rubbing and massaging her aches away as best I can.

“At week’s end, your fetus measures approximately 0.9 inches / 2.3 centimetres long. In both shape and size, it resembles a pea-pod and weighs less than a tenth of an ounce / 2 grams.”  Read more here.

The sad part of her finding her appetite is, that she also found out what morning sickness is. Still haven’t figured out why they call it morning sickness though, As it happens at any time of the day. We are hoping for a smooth completion of the first 3 months, and look forward to healthy final months. We will be seeing the Doctor again the first week of February.

Week 8

By Paul at 8:00 am on Wednesday, January 13, 2010

w00t!! Week 8 and counting.. 
I suppose this is an important week according to

“Congratulations — your embryo is now called a fetus, which means “offspring”. Your uterus expands to accommodate its new resident, which now measures approximately five-eights of an inch / 1.6 centimetres.” Please read more here.

Mira is having all the feelings associated with being pregnant now, from morning sickness (doesn’t always happen in the mornings though HAHA!!) to being tired when she lays down or sits up or stands too long, She craves everything but can’t have more than one bite before she is full lol.

About Me..

By Paul at 7:45 pm on Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Now that I have something to write about.. (My upcoming bundle of joy) I added and updated my About Me page. I never noticed the link I used to have just below the header picture went missing. So I went on a hunt for something I could add that would allow me to have an About Me Link on my main page and subsequent individule post pages too.

Updated “some” information and added a picture of My Wife Mira and I. (The upcoming mommy to be. hehe) I want to try and keep updates coming, even picture updates of Mira’s tummy getting bigger. So do look for updates as they happen.

🙂 Thank you all for reading and being a part of our joy.

Week 7…

By Paul at 2:10 pm on Wednesday, January 6, 2010

We have been to the Doctors now and he confirmed our test results.
Week 7 and things are going well. Mira has been showing some signs of morning sickness now and then.
She has been feeling tired and sleepy when she has been on her feet too long.

“Now about one half of an inch / 1.25 centimetres long, the size of a lentil. the embryo has distinct, slightly webbed fingers and toes. It’s a jumping bean, moving in fits and starts. The liver is churning out large amounts of red blood cells until the bone marrow forms and takes over this role.”

Please read more here.

We have already started thinking about names, and Mira wants it to be a surprise, But I want to know as soon as I can.
