12 Weeks!

Well I hit the 12 week mark on Saturday and I'm still feeling great. If it weren't for my belly I would have zero symptoms of being pregnant. I'm not even more tired than usual. I feel completely fine.

I had my 12 week appointment today. It went very well despite the fact that it took the doc a good 5 minutes to locate the baby's heartbeat on the doppler. She kept saying "it's really early so it always takes a long time" and "it will get easier to find it, I promise." I told her I wasn't too worried about it and she didn't have to say things to make me feel better, lol. When she could finally locate it, we listened to the beautiful sound for a good minute and a half. The baby's heart rate was a perfect 148bpm. =)

Other than that, the appointment was pretty uneventful {aren't they all?} My blood pressure was perfect {121/77} and I didn't gain a single pound. I was shocked. I thought I had gained at least 5lbs of belly, but no. Nothing! I guess this belly is just a result of everything shifting around in there.

Maybe I wouldn't say the entire appointment was uneventful because, as I checked out, I was able to SCHEDULE THE BIG ULTRASOUND!!!!!

The big day: December 23rd at 8:30am... what a Christmas present that will be =)

Yay for not gaining anything! That's always a good feeling. :)

And I don't think you could have a more perfect day to find out the gender. Amazing Christmas present, indeed.
