Oh baby!

Finally, at 16 1/2 weeks, it's a secret no more: WE'RE HAVING A BABY! We're currently in Scotland visiting Zums' family and are so happy we got to tell them in person when we arrived on Saturday. It seems like it's been our little secret for a LONG time, as we found out in early June that Baby Graham is on the way. We only told my family a couple of weeks ago, and they don't know how we were able to keep it a secret for so long.
I can't complain at all about how I've felt. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been sick, and the gym workouts are still on track. I did get a bit tired in the first trimester and have carb cravings. Zums was great and went on mashed potatoe runs a few times for me. Now, I'm back on track and not on a carb kick, so long may this continue!
The official due date is February 20. I have my 17 week appt September 15. I'm missing the 16 week appointment since we're in Scotland, and we're sooooo excited to find out the sex the second or third week of October. We've got our names picked out - boy or girl - and are keeping those top secret until the delivery room.
My friend Geri has been a saint in getting us the discounts on the baby products: breast pump, bottle sterilizer, bottle warmer, monitors, car seat and other baby essentials. Lots of basics, but we're excited to buy some pink or blue soon.
Our nephew Spencer has picked out the name 'Freddy Baby Graham' and always asked when are we buying the baby?!!? Hopefully as I get bigger he'll understand that I'm actually having it, and there's no shopping involved, though I am fearing the delivery room and just picking up a baby at Babies R Us seems much easier!
We're off to Paris on Friday morning, and I'm hoping we're able to find pasteurized cheese aplenty!
