Tomorrow I go for the ultrasound, and I hope to hear the heartbeat, and I don't know if I'll get more than that. It's still pretty darn small (maybe 5 mm?), so there probably won't be any image to identify.

The bat-mitzvah went fabulously; I told the family beforehand so I wouldn't have to sit on that info the entire time, and I told Meg while I was down there, who was overjoyed. The delivery was awesome, too: about managing the diabetes and how they've taken me off Metformin b/c in Canada they don't want an artificial hormone that might possibly go to the baby so I'm on insulin, and she said "so is this your way of telling me you're pregnant?" Yes!! *grin* I got a bag of maternity clothes from Jenna, which I still haven't gone through, and Tahl said that when I go visit her in November she'll see if she can unearth her maternity stuff. I asked why she still has hers - it's been a long while and she's given a lot away - and she said "well, I kept the pretty stuff." Awwww, she's willing to give me her pretty maternity clothes! That's entirely awesome, even if I'm not sure how it'll fit.

I have been so blessed so far: our friend Rob let the cat out of the bag about his new wife Marcy and their pregnancy a week or two before I found out about ours, and she's been sick as a dog, evidently, at only 9 weeks now. I have been able to eat what I want to eat, and haven't gotten sick, and haven't had any other physical weirdness. I am very thankful for that.

They took about 12 vials of blood (okay, maybe 9) from me last Thursday, to do some genetic testing as well as A1C as well as this that and the other, and all results should be in by the time I go to the doctors again on Oct. 22nd. I might call by Thursday just to find out about the A1C because I'm intensely curious (obsessive, me?), but I might be able to leave it alone for a week.

We told Carmen as well: she sqeeeee'd and jumped up and down and gave big hugs; she's going to be a grandma! We're not going to tell Eduardo until it's very obvious, because he isn't good at keeping new information, so it would make more sense for it to be extremely concrete, perhaps with photographic documentation. She agreed that going to Spain in September would be acceptable, depending on his health - if he's in the hospital or needs her, then no. I also think it'll depend on the health of me and the baby, which I sincerely hope will be absolutely fine. I cannot tell you how thrilled and excited I am to be going to Tarragona, Spain, with my family - family, husband and baby and mother-in-law, how awesome is that? Oh, the pictures we'll take!
