priority seat

Exciting news! I am now among the elite and respected in regards to the Japanese Train System... I qualify for a priority seat. These special seats are reserved for the elderly, handicapped, expecting mothers and people traveling with small children. Can you guess it? Yes! I am that green figure below with the booming belly! I would put pictures of my belly on this blog, but I'm pretty sure I am the only one who thinks I am showing in the least bit.

I am currently 10 1/2 weeks prego (I count the 1/2 because I'm new at this and really excited:)). According to babycenter.com our baby is about the size of a kumquat right now. If you're like me, and you don't know what that is, I've added a picture. Thankfully I don't have four of them like in the picture, just the one. :)

We are so excited about our little kumquat. We get to meet him/her (and yes, we want to find out what it is) sometime around August 22. We haven't quite finalized where in the world we will be on that date... but in the meantime, I am getting fabulous prenatal care from a Japanese hospital. All the doctors speak at least a little English, praise the Lord!

A big thanks to some of of my college girlfriends who bought me my very first maternity wardrobe. Confession: I've already worn the jeans a couple times eventhough I don't need to... they are just SO cute, I couldn't resist. You girls are the best.
