My little alien baby, hee hee!

Today's appointment was great! Baby C is growing SO big SO fast!!! He/She is measuring 11 weeks, 1 day and I'm only 10 weeks, 4 days! I have a feeling I'm gonna have a big baby! I can't wait until I can feel the baby move because I know I will feel him/her LOTS!!! This little baby is a MOVER!!! The last 2 ultrasounds we've had, baby is just a dancing around in there! It is SO incredible : ) The heartbeat was nice and strong at 174 bpm!!! YAY!!!

We are getting spoiled with the ultrasounds...we get another one in 2 weeks! We recorded today's scan on DVD! It's SO awesome! I hope I can figure out how to save it to the computer so I can post it here on the blog! I hope I will start feeling a little better (well, actually...LOTS better) so I will blog more often and stay more on top of my weekly updates. I have been lazy about taking belly pictures, but I am gonna try to fix that this week with the 11 week post : )

My New Toy!

I promise I am going to return to the bloggy world one day. I am so behind, but I just don't have the energy for anything these days! Exciting news though...I finally bought myself the new lens I've been wanting! YAY!! I haven't gotten to play with it much yet, but here are a couple of puppy portraits just for fun : ) They aren't even that good, but it's better than nothing, right!?

Baby Coop at 9 weeks!

We had our first OB appointment yesterday! It went great : ) We both really loved my doctor and are SO excited about him taking care of Baby C and I. We just sat in his office and talked with him about all kinds of things. He told me my "do's and dont's" and he also gave me some meds that will help me feel lots better! I hope! After our chat, we had our ultrasound. It was SO A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I could watch our little baby on that screen all. day. long.

When we first saw Baby C, he/she was moving around EVERYWHERE!!! It was SO cute! I had no idea they were so active this early. Baby C was waving his/her little arms around everywhere. It was pretty funny : ) We got to see the heart beating, the brain, the spine and the umbilical cord. Baby C is measuring right on time, anywhere from 8 weeks, 6 days to 9 weeks, 2 days. In the words of Dr. B, everything looks "perfect!" That's so wonderful to hear!

My belly hasn't changed any over the past week, so I think I will forego the belly pictures this week and just leave you with a comparison picture of Baby C : )

8 Weeks!
(These pictures are so unflattering of me...)

                 6 Weeks                                    8 Weeks

Okay, this preggo lady definitely has her fair share of bloating and all that nice stuff, but to me it looks like I may be starting to show a little bit? Yes? No? I don't know...

What do you think?

Gotta play catch-up!

I hate that I have been neglecting my blog this past week, but when you feel like you can't lift your head off of a pillow, some things must go...Not too much has happened this past week. I've pretty much spent 5 straight days in bed : / The nausea isn't letting up...

Thankfully, yesterday and today I feel a little better : ) I am sad that I missed my "8 week" post yesterday, but I hope to have it up at some point today. Also, Mikey surprised me with a looooong awaited gift for me this week and I hope to share that with you too!
