The wonderful thing about working in your doctor's office is you get free ultrasounds every once in a while. This baby was moving around and was just being so cute!! It is a constant worry about how the baby is doing until you actually start feeling it move and so this was amazing to see. It still feels like I'm out of body and I honestly have to remind myself that there is a little person inside of me. It is truly a miracle and can't wait for mom and dad to hold this little pea!

Sometimes it is NOT all rainbows and sunshine doing this and you just need someone who gets it and get you. Thanks to my sweet friend, Jen who has been there through the ups and downs of this crazy roller coaster ride! We are about a week and a half apart too. She is carrying for another family as well! You can check her blog out HERE!!

12 weeks and 3 days along!
I have been refusing to buy any maternity clothes and to wear any for that matter. I think it is getting close to me needing them though. I literally have my pants unbuttoned here but they are still zipped up. The pressure from it being buttoned is just so uncomfortable. I did cave and buy a belly band so that I can be button free for a while.

Weight Gain: 8 lbs. of pure fluff and maybe a little bit of baby
Cravings: Eggs, French toast with cream and yummy syrup, orange juice, cheese burgers with bacon, oh and bacon and more bacon! Anything that has meat in it really. Nothing has really changed with food other then maybe I've indulged a few hot dogs covered in chili here and there.
Aversions: A few smells make me super nauseated still. I am slowly eating all foods that I normally would. I was even able to drink a green smoothie again which was amazingly yummy!!
Symptoms: Nausea is easing up a little bit. Still have bouts of feeling sick but not as bad. My belly and boobs itch like crazy town. I have a noticeable baby bump now and hopefully my boobs are growing. ha Still extremely exhausted but hopefully with the 2nd trimester coming up that will ease up as well.
What I miss: I miss not feeling like a giant whale. I know I'm not the big yet but for some reason I feel huge. I already have a difficult time breathing sometimes. Now to add tossing and turning at night.
I do have a video of the baby but for some reason it won't upload it. I will keep trying. It was so cute and moving around a little bit.
