Baby may be coming sooner than expected!

At approximately 11:30 am on July 29th, Anna passed her mucus plug. This means that her water could break at any time and that the baby will most certainly be born sooner than the due date of September 8, 2005. She is right now under observation at the hospital to see if labour is starting. The baby is said to be healthy and roughly 6 pounds, which means if born this weekend then our baby will be put into an incubator for about one week as it will not be able to maintain its body temperature. Anna and I both hope that the baby can wait about a week as we still have to finish the nursery. Stay tuned for more posts on this exciting turn of events.

Our babies first Picture!

On April 14th, Anna's 19 week, we went to have the Ultra-sound done. This is the first time that we have seen the baby. We were told that there is a 70% chance it is a girl. I sure hope so, otherwise our son will be wearing a lot of pink, and may look funny in his purple and green room, tucked into his purple and green bedding, but more on that in the future.

So far everyone is healthy, baby moves a lot, which is good. I was concerned that the baby looked like an Alien from one of those James Cameron + Ridley Scott Franchises...ya know, ALIEN. However I was quickly informed by my wife that it looks like a baby. Well she kind've agreed that it looked like an Alien.

First Post Introduction

Just a little background: Anna and I were married on August 23, 2003. We first found out that Anna was pregnant in January 2004. Sadly we lost that baby in February 2004, but we will always remember it.

After waiting almost 7 months, we then started trying to have another baby and in December 2004 we received the wonderful news that Anna was pregnant again.

And this is the story:
