Baby Ackerman/Marella Update

Week 39 (10/07/05 - 17/07/05)

This morning (11/07/05) I had another ultrasound and the doctor told me that I have a very big baby growing inside me. I had already been able to figure this out for myself, as I'm not stupid, and people are constantly asking me if there are two babies inside me. I keep assuring them that there is only one, so many ultrasounds can't be wrong! Anyway, due to the size of my baby they have been talking about inducing me and letting the baby continue growing outside of me. I've got another appointment on Thursday to see how everything is going and perhaps then I will be checked into the hospital to get out only with a baby in my arms!

So, the next photos here might be of the new baby!

The weather here has been a bit cooler, thank goodness! Sunday morning found us going for a short walk near Castello Sforzesco and Parco Sempione (where we had pictures taken before our Milan wedding reception).

Finally a picture of the two of us. We don't have many. Note: Stefano isn't actually THAT skinny.

This is a reenactment of one of our "wedding" pictures.

July 4th, 2005

On July 4th it was quite hot here, and then it rained. The rain was so inviting that I decided to go for a walk.

July 1st, 2005

Canada Day! I wore a Canada shirt, at least long enough to get my picture taken. The shirt was quite tight, as you can see!

Week 26 (9/04/2005 - 15/04/2005)

As the weeks pass my belly gets bigger and bigger.

Here it seems that my belly measures 12 inches, but you'll have to take my word for it, as I don't think it's legible.

Here I am, I'm showing a bit, but I'm sure that will change in time and it will become even more obvious that I'm pregnant. Heck, just today a guy on the subway offered me his seat!

Well, Stefano and I are expecting a baby. We're letting the sex of the baby be a surprise! Said baby is due supposedly on the 18th of July, 2005. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Here is the first decent picture from an ultrasound - you can actually make out that it's a baby.

You should at least be able to make out the head, and torso. The spinal cord is pretty obvious. If you're lucky you might just see a hand, it's there near the baby's mouth.

Here is a baby hat I've almost finished. I've done the knitting part, now I just have to figure out how to sew it together. Since we don't know the sex of the baby the yarn is white with pink and blue accents.

In order to keep the cats out of the crib Stefano made this handy device out of some wood and some mosquito netting.
