Wow so that’s 4 months done.  Mira is feeling great, other than the usual tiredness.  We finally had a Dating ultrasound checkup on March 9th and all is well, picture below, dating is as it should be based on Mira’s LMP.  We go in for a more detailed ultrsound next month. So far so good, Mira has some more Folic Acid to take daily plus the Materna® she takes.


“Your baby is now about the size of an avocado (about 5 inches / 11.6 centimetres long from crown to rump and weighing approximately 4 ounces / 100 grams). In the next three weeks he’ll go through a tremendous growth spurt, doubling his weight and adding inches to his length.” Read more here.

Next ultrasound will be exciting, we can find out if it’s a boy or a girl. Most of the family wants it to be a surprise, but I want to know haha!!  Mira wants to know now too I think. We will know what we want when the time comes, till then we are still coming up with boy and girl names. If you have any ideas leave a comment with your choice but remember, only names starting with S, P, K and M will be considered haha!!!

4 inches and growing!!  Mira should be able to feel the baby in the next few weeks to come.  We have been busy trying to think of a name for our first born.  We have 4 letters to choose from “S, P, K, M”  for either a boy or girl any of those letters will do.  Personally I’d like my children to have a middle name too, so this is going to be fun coming up with two names per child.  We will deal with the first baby first HAHA!!

“You may be able to find out the sex of your baby by ultrasound now, since the external genitals may be developed enough that the ultrasound technician can tell you if you’re going to have a boy or a girl.” Read more here.

Hopefully there will be some ultrasound pictures to post next week. 
March 9th is coming quick.
