Peanut-bump Pictures!!!!

I have been "feeling" pregnant the past couple of days. I can really feel my stomach stretching and growing. It is such a weird feeling. Like something his pressing down on the bottom of my belly. Which, in reality, i guess there is! So, I had to post the first bump pictures because it is becoming more obvious to me lately that I am not only just getting chubbier! :)
I did not feel real great this past weekend. I woke up both days early with headaches, and nausea. No fun. I guess that part is not over yet. 2 more days till I hit 15 weeks!

Heartbeat

Happy 2nd trimester! :) We had a doctor's appointment today, and heard the sweet little heartbeat. It's so cute. We did not see a picture this time, but I guess I didnt expect to. I have to wait to see the next picture until November 20th. Only about a month now! o man! I cant wait to find out what we are having!
Pretty soon I will post baby bump pictures. I haven't wanted to post any yet, until it really looks like something other than a little extra chubb. My pants are becoming a little tighter around the waist, and I finally bought my first pair of maternity jeans the other day. It was much nicer feeling to sit down in those stretchy jeans than in my regular jeans, which i have been unbuttoning when I sit.
Momma has been feeling pretty good these days. Again, so so thankful for that. I just pray it continues. I did have to get a flu shot today. I really wasnt sure if I wanted to, but my doctor was very very persistant. She really encourages all her patients to get it. She told me that the majority of people dying from the flu right now are pregnant women. Good thing I work with children, huh? Not really. I pray parents are selfless enough this season to stay home with their kiddos when they are even a little bit sick! For all of us!
Anyway, looking forward to whatever 2nd trimester has for us!

13 Weeks!!!

Baby Peanut is now 13 weeks!!! And momma only has a week to go before beginning 2nd trimester! Pretty exciting, although the fist trimester has not been as bad as I have heard it could be! :)
Here is what I read today about Baby:

"How your baby's growing:

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce."

I am feeling a lot better now than I was the rest of this week. I did go into work yesterday, which was OK, but a little tough. I was just so exhausted! I came home early to snuggle in bed and watch You've Got Mail. :)
I have a few things to look forward to in the next month!
- 1 week until my next doc appointment. look forward to more news on baby.
-4 weeks until Brittanie and Tina come in for a visit! Excited about some of that girl time!
- 5 weeks until we find out the sex of our first child!!!!!!!!! I might just be counting down the days until then. I am so anxious! :)

I took the meds the doctor gave me, and I am pretty sure it helped. I havent been sick since this morning. keeping down soup and gatorade right now. I plan on going in to work tomorrow, although I am still not feeling so well. Thanks for prayers.

Sick again

Just in case any of you are reading today.......
I woke up yesterday (sunday) morning feeling a little funny. Anyway, I ate breakfast and was fine, but then later took a nap, woke up, and ate soup. I have not kept anything down since breakfast yesterday , not even fluids. I got a little worried this morning when i woke up still so sick. So, i called my doctor and she prescribed me an anti nausea med. If it doesnt work by then end of the day, they suggest i go into the ER because they will need to hydrate me.
I think it is so weird that I dont have morning sickness vomiting, but the last 2 times i have gotten sick, it has been so bad. This time seems worse. I feel like I have every symptom for the flu but no fever, as far as I know. I am hoping it is nothing too bad. I want to eat, but am a little scared to. I will update at the end of the day or sometime tomorrow. Thanks for prayers.

12 Weeks!

Happy 12 weeks today!!! That means I only have a week or 2 left until I am in my 2nd trimester! Baby peanut is about the size of a lime now. It grows so fast. I got this next bit of information from a website...
"This week marks a turning point for your baby. At 12 weeks pregnant, the herculean task of developing new bodily structures is nearing an end as most of your baby's systems are fully formed. Now comes the maintenance phase, during which your fetus' systems continue to mature for the next 28 weeks and the organs get to work. "

As for momma, I am doing well. Still very tired quite often! I have been feeling as if I dont ever really get rested. But, I am still so thankful for my health. Other than that, there isnt much else new going on! We have our next appointment on the 21st. I am hoping I will hear a heartbeat again.
