12 and 13 Weeks!

So yeah, I'm pretty much a failure when it comes to blogging these days : ( Actually, I'm a failure at anything other than being sick and sleeping lately. As a result of my blogging hiatus, I am forced to combine my 12 and 13 week updates. Nothing has changed in the two weeks so I guess it doesn't really matter.

How far along? 13 weeks!

Baby's size? Almost 3 inches and weighing close to one ounce!

Weight Gain? Shockingly, still 1 pound...

Maternity clothes? Yeap. I was hoping to go a while before requiring any maternity clothes, but that wasn't happening with these boobs! Most of my shirts would give me a little belly room, but my boobs made them too short : ( Oh well, it always fun to go shopping, right!? And...I must admit the maternity pants are WAY more comfy than my regular pants. Guess I didn't realize my tummy has gotten a little bigger.

Stretch marks? Nope

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? Ehh...sucks. I just can't stop sleeping during the day, which I know makes it worse at night. But I'm just so nauseated (and exhausted) during the day I would rather just sleep through it than be miserable. Hopefully, when I begin working day shift this will get better.

Foods I am loving? Oh let's see...pretty much anything that is terrible for me. Still potatoes in any form, cheeseburgers, pasta, cheese, pizza, sweet tea, and peppermints! Although, I have backed off the Subway sandwiches lately.

Foods I am hating? Chicken! Hence all the hamburgers and pizza : /

Best moment this week? the MOST awesome ultrasound

Movement? This baby is such a mover! But I still can't feel it : ( Soon, I hope!

Symptoms? Same old, same old...lots of nausea and sickness (guess my baby didn't get the memo that this is suppose to be better now!), shortness of breath, started experiencing the extra saliva (yuck!) which doesn't help the nausea, and some cramping the past couple of days

Gender? I'm still thinking BOY, but we'll see next month!

What I miss? I just wish I had more energy to function day to day

What I'm looking forward to? Finding out if we're having a baby boy or girl!

Weekly Wisdom: ??

Milestone: 2nd trimester! YAY!

Emotions: Great! But I have noticed that I get teary-eyed a little easier lately : )



So, on Monday we had the most awesome ultrasound! Baby C was dancing around as usual! We got to see a great profile view (our baby is SO beautiful by the way) and he/she was already sucking his/her thumb! SO stinkin adorable!!! There is also a great shot of the arm and hand behind the head...you can see the hand and arm so clearly, it is just amazing! The heartbeat was nice and strong at 157 BPM!! I am going to post 2 videos of the ultrasound. We had a really hard time saving these where we could post them. Somehow they are a little out of order, but still awesome. The first one starts out as the 10 week ultrasound and somehow changes over to the 12 week. The first one shows the face and the heartbeat. The second one is where he/she was sucking his/her thumb : )









The thumb sucking starts at about 28 sec and goes on for a little while : )
