Week 12

Today I had another Dr. appointment and Luke and I were able to hear our sweet baby's heartbeat again. Such a sweet sound! It was a good strong, fast heartbeat and we are thankful!

Several of my twitter BFF's have asked to see belly pics, which of course I was totally planning on doing.....I just never thought my my belly would be this prevalent this early, but hey its all for a good cause; a sweet baby at the end!

And even though I kissed insecurity goodbye I need to give a little disclaimer before I post these pictures.

When I get ready for work in the mornings I am alone. Basically I'm saying, no one is here to take my picture when I'm looking my best. So these pictures are at about 8pm at night when my makeup has long since worn-off, my hair has been thrown up in a pony tail, and I am walking around in a near comatose state just trying to stay awake. In other words I look really, really bad. But in order to show you my pretty side I would have to wake up about 45 minutes earlier so that Luke would have time to take my picture before he leaves for work.

And between me and you that just ain't happening. I don't care about my looks that much.

So scary pictures it is! I choose bad pictures over sleep....I have no shame.

Also, I'm going to do that little pregnancy questionnaire thing, which to be honest I never read until I was actually pregnant so feel free to skim it. It's really for my own self to come back and read later.

Week 12:
(do not be alarmed the baby is in my stomach and not my butt, looks can be deceiving)

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 12 Weeks
Size of baby: Not sure exact measurements, but my book says its the size of a lime
Total Weight Gain/Loss: So far I've gained 2 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Nope, just my trusty ole Bella Band - my love
Gender: Don't know yet but we will be finding out in October!
Movement: Not yet, I thought I felt flutters once, but never felt anything again, so obviously it was gas.
Sleep: Oh gosh. Don't even get me started. I always thought restless sleep occurred in the 3rd trimester. Not so much in my case. I toss and turn all night long.
What I miss: Diet coke and sleeping on my back and stomach
Cravings: Anything cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, cheese-its, cheeto cheese puffs, cheese crackers etc etc
Symptoms: I'm tired all the time and sometimes I feel nauseous, but mostly I feel great
Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat for the second time!

And just for kicks:

Week 10
Week 11


And another Week 12 pic, this one is good because I actually have make up on and my hair is decent (it was taken on labor day when Luke was home to take my picture PROMPTLY after I got ready for the day) However I had my jeans pulled up over my stomach so it's not a good depiction of my baby belly. But I can't put only bad pictures of me on here!! It's my blog and I'll do what I want to!

I don't think anyone would even know that's a baby bump if you didn't tell them. You'll look back at these pictures in a few months and think, "gosh, I was TINY!!!"

Congratulations by the way :). So fun!
