Well, I hope this still comes as a surprise to at least some of you, because most of our relatives and friends have already heard the joyful news: we are pregnant again! I've known for a while now, but I have waited to tell you until now, because morning sickness prevented me from sitting in front of a computer screen for longer than 5 minutes. In July I was feeling so nauseous and tired that I even went to stay with my in-laws, so they could help me take care of Auro.
Anyway, I'm feeling a lot better now (not completely nausea-free however), which means that I should be about 3 months along. The doctors also confirm this, though the due date is still not very clear. According to the gynecologist's calendar it should be around the 6th of March. The ultrasound scans suggest it might be a bit earlier than that. 
The first ultrasound scan was done here in Genoa when I was about 7 weeks pregnant and shows a tiny little bean of about 10mm big. 

For the 2nd ultrasound I went to a clinic in Cesenatico. By that time I was 12 weeks along and the little bean had grown arms, legs, fingers, eyes, a nose... and was already 54mm long! Even though it is the 2nd time for me, it feels as magical as the first time to see my child growing inside of me, so I hope you will forgive me if I will try to keep you posted ;-)
