Cute in t-shirt! Weight gain starting halfway through pregnancy already puts you waaay ahead of the game - I had 5 extra pounds practically the day after I peed on the sticks (it took a few for me to believe it too). Only - don't you have a camera and a mirror and that same t-shirt at home??!!
Oh good luck, and just for the heck of it I'll send positive pink thoughts your way can send me the positive blue thoughts (or the flamboyantly purple thoughts if indeed I am carrying a wee queen). I just had the 19 week ultrasound yesterday and that damn Tech would NOT tell us the sex! In fact, he lied and said he can't see it before 24 weeks. Which I know to be a lie since I work at the hospital and talked to his boss's boss last week to ensure that it is possible to see the sex if the baby cooperates. I'll say this for your privatized health care in the U.S. - at least when you're paying the bill you have more control over your own information!Can't wait to see how it goes!
I'm several weeks late with this comment but am just catching up with your blog. Brad and I opted out of the testing - the test here is the triple screen and it really just tells you whether you have a higher than average chance at having a trisomy, downs, or spina bifida baby. We discussed this to death with each other and bored everyone we know to tears. Ultimately decided no because we didn't think we'd do anything with that information. Except worry for the next 5.5 months. Even more than we're already worrying about all the things that could go wrong. Whatever pops out of me will be intensely loved and adored. Now only 4 weeks to go until the ultrasound! Good luck with whatever decision you make!

As a mom to be with due date of December 3, I can relate to how you're feeling. As a Canadian working in health care (i.e. public sector employment) I know how lucky I am to receive Employment Insurances (EI) for a full 52 weeks, plus a top up to 85% of my salary for 27 weeks of that time. This is what we Canadians pay those damn high taxes for, and finally after 15 years in the taxpaying world I will be collecting. Seriously it's close to half my paycheque in income taxes, but it's suddenly so worth it. If you ever need a sponsor to move to Canada let me know! You could be pregnant with my preggo friends and I! Take care ... 15 weeks pregnant and I haven't blogged about it once or told everyone yet - I totally admire your courage and your amazing writing style!
