June 28, 2006 - Twenty Week Ultrasound: IT'S A BOY!!!
Today was probably the longest day of my life having to wait for our 3:00pm appointment.  I went to work today, but didn't get much done since I was so excited to finally find out what we were having.  We got to the doctor's and they took us right away.  Within 44 seconds of the technician turning on the ultrasound machine, she showed us the picture of the legs spread wide open and it was obvious that we were having a boy!!  He was so active throughout the entire ultrasound, kicking and turning all over the place.  He is absolutely beautiful!!!  I am in love with him already.  He weighed 13.5 ounces and he is perfect and healthy!!  We are so excited to start planning the nursery for our little man.  Here are the ultrasound pics from today.  Enjoy!! ~Jen

June 13, 2006 - Sweet Little Baby Kicks
I felt the very first baby kick today while I was at work. I was at my desk talking to a client on the phone, and all of a sudden I felt a little tap (obviously I had no idea what the client said to me after that.)  I didn't think much of it at first, but then it kept happening and I just knew it was the baby kicking.  It kept happening all day and it made me so happy.  My day at work started out pretty rough that day, but the sweet little baby kicks made it all better.  I hadn't felt them since the pregnancy started, so it was a wonderful milestone day.   ~Jen

May 30, 2006 - Sixteen Week Ultrasound!
Jen was feeling some pain this morning (May 30th), so to play it safe, she called her doctor. They said to come right in. We were obviously concerned, but they saw us right away and asked her a bunch of questions. They didn't think it was anything to be concerned with, but they performed an ultrasound just in case. That too checked out and we left a bit relieved and happy to have even more pics of our yet to be born angel.   ~Chris

May 2, 2006 - Twelve Week Ultrasound
Today was our diagnostic ultrasound at the hospital.  We got to see the baby dancing all over the place.  It was just so incredible.  The technician said that everything looked great and we were so happy to be able to see our little bundle of joy.  This was my second time seeing the baby on the ultrasound, but this was Chris' first.  He was so thrilled to see Baby Palermo!  ~Jen

April 5, 2006 - Eight Week Ultrasound (The First Pics of Baby Palermo!)
I was having some spotting this morning and I was pretty worried.  I immediately called the doctor and they told me to come in around 1:30pm.  It was pretty tough to stay at work for a couple of hours before my appointment since I really wasn't sure what was going on.  When I got to the doctor's office, they saw me right away and the doctor didn't seem too worried.  She did want to do an ultrasound just to be sure that little baby was staying as cozy as possible in there.  They did the ultrasound and everything was just fine.  The baby was measuring 4 days ahead of schedule and I was so excited to see the baby moving all over the place.  Today, I got my official due date--November 15, 2006.  YAY!!!  ~Jen
