So yeah, the second one is on the way! This has been our secret early Christmas present and since Christmas is just around the corner (tomorrow!) we thought it's time to share our great news to family and friends. Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!

Our first scan! We were so excited but at the same time nervous. It was a scan to check whether our lil bean has a high percentage in carrying any chromosomal disease. Thank God, it was normal. Ah and that was our first time literally heard its heartbeat and saw the baby inside moving around! It was so active that the nurse complained she couldn't easily get the image she wanted to capture haha A proud moment for me :)
Our lil bean is shaping up more like a baby in every doctor's visit. This was scanned at ten-week-old on May 25, 2013.
Phew, we are into our second trimester now. Lil bean was estimated ten-week old in this sonogram taken on May 25th. We took this photo just few days ago. This is the first scan that we can clearly tell which one is the head. Oh I can't wait to find out its gender haha.
Overall, everything's lookin' good, the baby's growing well, and me too, growing in size *grin* the bump is still a bit shy to show up though. In my thirteenth week, I'm feeling more like myself, no nausea, no dizziness which is awesome, although in some random occasions I can't take strong smell, like yesterday, when I sprayed my favorite parfume suddenly the smell made me gag. Sometimes, especially during work, I even forgot I'm pregnant, it's how that normal I'm feeling.
This scan was taken on May 11, 2013. Lil bean was eight-week old and the shape was clearly defined by now, looking more like a shape of a baby. I didn't feel that much nauseous in my second month, so I was grateful for that, albeit still felt a bit drained. Ah and I was craving for everything sweet and cold, mmm ice cream... cake...
This ultrasound scan was taken on April 24th, 2013 when I was into my seventh week and lil bean was measuring 6 week and 1 day. Still couldn't see the baby shape just yet, but this was the first time we could see the flicker of its heart.
