To Widgit or not to Widgit, and other stuff

You know those blogs of people having babies?

They have this widgit in their sidebars, that show this revolving baby, with a countdown. It looks kind of strange to me when I look at them....
do you few readers want a revolving baby widgit?
I am trying not to make this a baby blog, because that wasn't what it was. It really is just some sort of chronicle of what is going on with me.
Yes, right now, baby is what is going on with me, but there are other things, too. Like my Jeep needs a new starter and left me stranded at work the other day.
Like MG is SIXTEEN, and a Junior in high school (eeek!)
Like, MM is now starting training to run a 5 or 10 k. Something. He is running. Which is great. Someone has to chase the baby.
The baby.
Had a doctors appt. yesterday, that was kind of fun. I picked anOB who has been in practice for the last 32 years. He is very nice, very capable, and won't retire on me before the baby. I like experienced doctors. We did the full work up yesterday, the dreaded pap smear and all. He was very gentle with me, I didn't even feel the exam, which was awesome.
Best of all, of course, was we got to have the sonogram. He checked and measured and showed us things, like the brain, the face, all the arms and legs, the beating heart. Everything looks the way it should. MM and I were both enthralled by the little screen, of course. The doctor gave us three pictures of the little tyke to bring home with us so we could show MG her sibling. She is still hoping for a boy :)
See, this post ended up being a baby post after all...

I'm cool with a baby widget!
And when you're pregnant, it mostly IS about the baby. That's okay - it's how it should be!

I am on board with the baby widget too. If I were in your shoes I would want it. I mean this is such a miracle, you know?

I am glad that all is well with your little baby.

It's your blog. Be excited. Be happy. Talk about what's important to you which at the moment is my little niece or nephew.
