News of the pregnancy has been made “public”, except at work.


   



I confess I feel a little superstitious about the pregnancy - I feel that if I tell people the baby becomes less real (maybe I wanted to be pregnant so badly that I tricked the world into believing it). Which is ridiculous but I'm not always entirely rational.

 

Church on its knees helped a bit because Father Dave talked about God has control over his plans and will take them through to completion and then I was reminded through Ps 31 to make God my refuge (and the point was hammered home in John 15 "Abide in my love"). It's a bit easier to panic though.



   



It seems a bit early to start prenatal classes, but the inexpensive city of Ottawa classes insist that you must sign up prior to twenty weeks. Not that anyone else seems to have taken that seriously!


   



Our first trimester ends on Saturday, and we've decided to take Rev. Jen's advice and let our parents in on our secret today.

 

My parents are heading west this weekend on a three week small plane adventure to visit various relatinves and hopefully cross the Rockies.  Dad hopes to complete the Mission Aviation Fellowship "Technical Flight Evaluation" which is their next step in being accepted as missionaries.  Since Jennifer already guessed my news, if we waited until they were back they might not otherwise be among the first to know...

 

Dad's birthday is coming up, so we took him out for lunch at the Ristorante La Dolce Vita.  We invited Mom along since it's one of the only restaurants in the city with a gluten-free menu!  It was a real treat to actually be able to order calamari and pasta.

 

We gave Dad a copy of the ultrasound in his birthday card...  They were thrilled...  Later that day we went over to visit Brendan's folks.  All very exciting, although we stressed that it is early days yet.



   



First ultrasound today confirms that the baby has a heartbeat! Based on size, her due date is confirmed as March 7th.
