Baby, Wave Hello To My Friends!

This wonderful picture of our baby was taken a week ago. This time it was much more relaxed, and at some point it seemed to by sucking its thumb. (I am really looking forward to being able to say 'he' or 'she' once we find out the gender. By the way, anyone want to take a guess?)

I have been feeling so great this past week. My appetite is healthy, I have energy, and there is no sign of the nausea that had me green at the gills in the first trimester.

My next ultrasound is on April 20th, which seems like forever. And I think of the countless women before me to went through entire pregnancies without ever seeing their baby on an ultrasound screen, and am in awe of the faith they had that everything was alright. I talk to other women my age who are pregnant or have babies, and we all seem so frightened and worried. It makes me wonder if women were always this worried or if it's a new phenomenon.

I've finally stopped craving sweets, and now I mostly dream of burgers, fruit, and green coconut water.

Spring is truly in the air and slowly but surely spreading it's greenery over the land. I can't wait to share pictures of the wild garlic, creeks of melted snow, and doggies with you. At the moment my Photoshop isn't up and running, so you'll have to have a little bit of patience before I can get to regular posting again.

Sending joyful wishes your way, and thanking you for the sweet and loving comments you've left me,

xoxo country girl


  1. beautiful! I am so happy for you. Congratulations!

  2. I didn't have such modern technology when I had mine and the last one was only 25 yr. ago, and now my baby is expecting in the fall and can enjoy it all. I can see you having a baby girl! But it really doesn't matter as long as it's healthy and strong! I'm so happy for you!!

  3. Yay!!! Hello, baby Rigoni! I can't wait to meet you! I'm so happy for you, Dawn!
    PS. Any chance I'll get your new mail address?

  4. Dawn how wonderful to see this absolutely gorgeous happy picture of your little one! Thrilled to say hello! I'm guessing you'll have a boy. But then! It'll be one or the other for sure!! Hope you're keeping well and are having the soft warm days that we are here xoxo Rachel

  8. I found waiting for the first scan at 13 weeks so difficult, even though I kept being told over and over that the excessive nausea pretty much indicated all was well in the womb at least!! I honestly have no idea how women used to last the whole 9 months... but then again they never used to even have it confirmed until after they missed two periods... I couldn't even wait for the day of my first missed period to test! I guess we are just more used to knowing these things much earlier now and so are more impatient!

    What a lovely photo... so nice of baby to wave to you!

  9. oh, hi little wee one!!!! i can't wait to find out what you're having! So much fun! and I hear you- i was worried every step of the way. hearing the heartbeat and seeing the little bunny always made me feel better. i guess we start worrying right away and it probably never goes away:). but congrats again- glad to hear you're feeling better:).


  10. Beautiful little baby! Oh! So pleased... but don't be will all be okay! xxx

  11. Such a good clear ultrasound of your little one and I can definitely see the wave. What a miracle of technology to be able to see your little in the womb. Think it might be a girl. Nice to hear your "morning sickness" is gone and you can enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Looking forward to more walks in the woods. BTW would still love the recipe for rhubarb.

  12. Congrats!!! I am due August 31st and find waiting for the next ultrasound so tortuous! Ours is on April 19th but we aren't finding out the sex. I have been reading your blog and am so happy for you and your husband. Take care and happy pregnancy =)

  13. Dearest Dawn, tell the little one I am waving back!!! How sweet is that ultra sound! Thank you so much for posting and keeping everyone updated. Sending good thoughts and love and hugs, Sherry xx (A little girl??)

  14. It is so good to hear that everything is going well!

  15. This is so exciting, Dawn! So many big and wonderful changes in your life, so much to look forward to. I'm very happy for you. xoxo

  16. hello beautiful baby girl!!! welcome welcome - we await your debut
