12 Weeks!

12w1
Shirt: Old Navy | Jeans: Gap

Okay, so two big things happened this week...

1. I felt the baby! You have no idea how happy this makes me! I actually started feeling him/her last week, but wasn't quite sure if it was "real" yet. It was little flicks and bumps right in the center of my belly, about 2 inches below my belly button. As a third time mom, you know what the baby feels like, and I really should have just trusted my gut feeling, but it was so early.

However, this week? I know without a doubt that it's the baby. My wittle, itty, bitty baby. Aww. Ever since then, I've been feeling my little sweet pea a few times a day. I actually just felt him/her a minute ago and it just makes my heart melt. So, yay!

2. I scheduled the big ultrasound! Ahhhh! How is that even possible!?! This is going by SO FAST. Anyway, I have to have a level II done at Maternal Fetal Medicine because of my history of monster babies and pre-e so they called last Tuesday and it's on the books for Monday, April 16th at 9:30am! 6 weeks from today, EEEKKK! I haven't seen the baby since 7w, so what a difference this u/s is going to make. I'm, of course, super nervous about it as well... I just want him/her to be healthy!

Bob and I plan to make a big day out of it {again!} by taking the day off from work, going to the u/s in the morning, then doing some shopping and going out to lunch. It's my favorite day of the pregnancy and even though we don't plan to find out the sex of the baby, it's still going to be amazing!

Pregnancy: 12 weeks

Weight Gain: -1 pound

Sleep: I fell asleep on the couch {ahem, while holding Brynn} at 7pm last night. So yeah... sleep is good.

Gender: We're team green, so we'll find out in September!

Names: More to come on this!

Feeling: Really great! Just tired a lot, but overall, I'm feeling good. I love it!

Health: I guess I passed my glucose test? I never heard anything and with my doc, no news is good news. I may call my nurse just to hear her say it though ;)

Movement: See above. :)

Belly: Getting bigger by the week {um, as expected ;} Bob and I went to a 40th anniversary party on Saturday night, so here's a picture from that...
