Well I had my first ultrasound today- It was as amazing as everyone said it would be. My baby( so cool to say that) was kicking its legs in the air and twisting and turning and doing somersaults. It looks like a little baby and was curling his or her hands in and laying on his/ her belly. My mom was amazed. She has seen ultrsound pictures before but never saw the baby moving inside like that. It was a wonderful day. Our due date is now August 3rd, so not as early or as late as previously thought. I am awestruck my the little miracle growing inside me.
1. How far along are you? 12w3d

2. What symptoms are you experiencing? Still some mild food issues (same thing with American cheese as last week), both in aversions and being Suddenly Starving (five minutes ago, I was too full to even think of food. Now I'm starving, and if I don't eat soon, I may well be sick).

3. Any appointments this past week and how did they go? Had the appointment with the midwife on Weds. I'm not sure I like her - she's all about the tests and procedures, is already starting to put pressure on me for things that won't be done for another ten weeks, and is cool with the idea of episiotomy as a threat. However! We got to hear the baby's heartbeat, though, so I'm fine for now. ^_^ I'll have a chat with the midwife the next time I see her, and we'll get things either straightened out or reassigned.

4. Any appointments coming up? Not until 1/29 (with the secondary midwife)

5. Anything big happening in your personal life? I just told my bosses and other work folks about the pregnancy on Friday - couldn't hide it anymore, as I've started showing, big time! Also, we're planning to take advantage of the new stat holiday 2-18 to go visit friends and my family in Chicago!

6. Questions, comments, complaints, observations? I've noticed a lot of random issues this past week - namely headaches, stiff muscles, and pains when I stand up too fast.


7. Show us Belly pictures! Not so much from me. ^_^

This is my ultrasound from last month, not my most recent one. It is the only one I have on the computer.

How are you feeling? Good. I love being pregnant

Any Dr. Appointments / ultrasounds / tests this past week and how did they go? First appointment with my new OB yesterday on the 9th. Got my second ultrasound. Blood drawn. I will know the results in a week or so.

Any Dr. Appointments / ultrasounds / tests this coming week? No more until February 7th

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc)? My husband is a member of the United States Air Force and will be leaving in March for basic training. This is my second baby.

Any questions you want to ask? No, I am good.

Any Belly Pics from this week? Yes. I take one every Sunday and sometimes another one during the week. I will try to upload them soon.

Any food cravings? It varies. Sometimes brownies, one night at 1 am it was pickles. Past couple of days, baked potatoes.

Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! I loved getting my second ultrasound since the one three weeks ago looked like nothing but a pea.

1. How far along are you? 11 weeks even!
2. What symptoms are you experiencing? I'm still having that love/hate relationship with food, and the idea of drinking water makes me queasy.
3. Any appointments this past week and how did they go? Nope, not this week!
4. Any appointments coming up? January 9 - heartbeat, here we come!
5. Anything big happening in your personal life? Not a lot, really. DH starts school next week, but other than that it's pretty much business as usual!
6. Questions, comments, complaints, observations? I've grown 3 cup sizes already. I started at a nice 40C. I'm now a 44DDD. This does not bode well for later in pregnancy, or when milk comes in! I've also been told I'm starting to show, but it might have just been the pants I was wearing at the time. I'm starting to get more excited about this, in light of the appointment on Wednesday. I think I've been holding my breath on it, just in case something is wrong. Ah, well. We'll see as we get there!

Weekly Update!

pregnant ass-kicking
1. How far along are you? Ten weeks this past Friday
2. What symptoms are you experiencing? Not much, actually. A little nausea from being too hungry or too thirsty, some moodiness, but that's about it.
3. Any appointments this past week and how did they go? Nothing this past week. I'm looking forward to the next, though, when I can talk to the midwife some more about not actively managing my labour!
4. Any appointments coming up? January 9 - we're supposed to hear the heartbeat!
5. Anything big happening in your personal life? Not a whole lot. New Years party in DH's hometown (1.5 hours away!), and DH bombed one of his classes, but that's about it. (This is big because he may have to re-take the class, which means he won't be out of school until December, and the baby's due in July/August! We'll have to see.)
6. Questions, comments, complaints, observations? My clothes are starting to fit strangely. I'm also noticing that my poor husband is moody and touchy - he's getting the worst of my pregnancy symptoms, poor guy!
7. Show us Belly pictures! Eventually! I have to actually take any first. Still too early to be showing. ^_^

ok question lol. If according to things written, as a pregnant woman I am supposed to only eat about 300 more calories a day- ok, then how come I am constantly hungry then?

So, out of the blue one of my best friends calls me(she stood in my wedding) She has been very busy with a move and redoing her new house. I said guess what? I'm pregnant- she said guess what so am I. She said I am due in August- I asked when she said the 8th or the 9th. SO me and one of best friends who I have known since we were 18 have the exact same due date! What are the chances!

has anybody elses husband been cold about the pregnancy? Though this was planned and worked for my husband has been angry, telling me he doesn't think I will be a good mother and is resentful that I am sick and excited about a child. when i told him I was pregnant he said" well you must be happy, you got what you wanted" he asked me today why I even want a child. with the emotions of pregnancy I feel like I just can;t take this. I really do. He is ruining what is supposed to be the happiest time of my life and forgiveness for that will be hard to develop.
