Survey & belly pic

I am not a skinny person, but C & I can definitely tell that something is there now (where the arrow is pointing!) :)

How far along?
13 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: down 10 pounds total..
Maternity clothes? I bought a pair of jeans last week and they are HEAVEN! I am waiting for my MIL to hem them because I am a shorty! I bought a shirt yesterday but I don't know if I'll need it for awhile.
Stretch marks? they were there long before I got pregnant!
Sleep: I am waking up more to either a) go to the bathroom or b) because I hate sleeping on my side & it is uncomfortable!
Best moment this week: my birthday on 12/12! We went shopping and had dinner at Red Lobster ( in-laws treated us!)
Movement: pretty sure I felt a couple flutters yesterday when I was listening to the heartbeat with my doppler. I HEARD the baby move around and felt something in my lower abdomen that I know was not gas. It was SO AWESOME!
Food cravings: still loving popcorn. Yesterday I had this overwhelming urge for an icee while we were at Target, but the cherry was out :(
Gender: I think it is a boy. Boys run in C's side of the family, all dreams have been a boy, chinese gender chart says boy. If the u/s tech says we are having a girl I will probably fall off the table!
Labor Signs: nope.
Belly Button in or out? still in.
What I miss: my energy
What I am looking forward to: Christmas and our BIG ultrasound February 5th!! So far away still..
Weekly Wisdom: follow your instincts, they are usually right on!
Milestone: making it to 2nd tri!

2nd tri here I come!

I am so excited to finally be in the 2nd trimester! It feels like such a huge milestone, and I am so grateful to be pregnant! I still have good days and bad days as far as the nausea/vomiting goes. Sometimes it solely depends on what I eat, and other times it just rears its ugly head for no reason. I am okay with it though if it means our little baby is growing!! I am currently down 10 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. I go to the doctor on December 31, so I'll find out if that is still okay!

In other news, I haven't blogged lately because my laptop died last week! I knew it was coming, it died a slow, horrible death :( C & I have been shopping around and could not find anything in the price range we were looking at ($350 or less). Yesterday we finished all of our Christmas shopping and decided to go to Wal-Mart just to see what they had. I absolutely hate that store but they have the cheapest prices and right now that is what matters! Well, they had a Toshiba Satellite laptop on sale for $299!! SCORE!! I literally did a dance and told the guy helping us that he made my entire Christmas! I am so happy to have a computer again! My hubby & I do not share well since he likes to play video games (alot!).

I am looking forward to Christmas next week!!!

Pregnancy Brain FAIL

I went to Jack in The Box last night because I really wanted some Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges. I had to have them! So, I get to the window and hand the cashier a $5 bill (the total was $4.43). Another girl hands me my food and said something about the cashier will give me my change in a minute. I was so excited about my food that I drove off without my change! Luckily it was only 57 cents! I felt stupid, but the potato wedges more than made up for it! :)

I feel like I am losing my mind sometimes! If I am having a conversation, I just cannot think of the right word to say, or I just totally forget to do stuff! I have a feeling by the time I have this baby, I am going to do a lot more than forget my change at the drive-thru lol

11 weeks!

I had my OB check up today. We heard the heartbeat 165bpm!! It was amazing! I've lost 5 pounds since my last appointment, but since I'm already overweight it really isn't a big deal. The doctor said I should try to stay around this weight for another 19 weeks!!!! WHAT? I'll try, but that seems a little crazy to not gain any weight until I'm 30 weeks along. I'm hoping to only gain 10-15 pounds, we will see!! We scheduled our BIG ultrasound for February 5th, 2010 which seems SO far away. I hope the time goes by quickly, I can't wait to find out!

I have noticed that I am starting to have more energy the past week or so. My nausea/vomiting has also lessened (THANK GOODNESS!). I am starting to feel like a human being again ;) I know it is all worth it though to have this baby! My mom bought me a doppler for my birthday and it came in the mail the other day. I have been hearing the heartbeat for a few days, but it was great to get confirmation from the doctor too!

Next appointment is December 31!
