12 weeks

Yes I know I skipped week 11 but we were in the Bahamas on a cruise and just enjoying a vacation so I'll just skip that week but really nothing has changed between then in now so no worries you're not missing anything. And no worries I'll make a post about our vacation too!

How far along? 12

Updates on baby: The baby is now the size of a lime! It still blows my mind to think about how much this little precious baby is growing inside me!! We heard it's heartbeat yesterday while at the doctor and it measured at 166bpm. very strong little heart for our baby :)

Symptoms/Body Changes: The last couple of weeks I haven't felt pregnant AT ALL! Which of course has made it a bit paranoid!!! But I've been feeling great so I am very thankful!

Movement: Still no movement! And the doctor told me it'd probably be another month or two before I could really feel it. Not really the news I wanted to hear but I know it's all in the process!

Cravings/Aversions: I haven't really been having cravings the last couple of weeks which is probably because i was a on cruise where i could eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted LOL!! I did very well not over doing it though and I ate salads and fruit everyday to balance it all out! But no cravings for me!

Getting ready for baby: Yeah we haven't done anything since cleaning out the room a bit a few weeks ago.

What I miss: Since I haven't been feeling very pregnant I dont really miss anything at this point. Still wish I had a bit more energy but that's really about it.

What I am looking forward to: I can not wait to go have another ultrasound and find out the sex of our little bundle of joy!!! I think once that happens I will be getting lots more done!

Weekly wisdom: Don't be paranoid!!! It's so easy to get worried and nervous about everything little thing but really all you can do is pray and listen to the doctor and trust that your little baby is growing happy in healthy even when you can't feel it!

10 weeks

I'm in the middle of my 10th week and I think I get excited more and more each day. I'm a quater of the way through and I still feel like I just found out! My post for week 11 will probably be a little later because I will be on a cruise next week but I won't skip it I promise!

How far along? 10 weeks

Updates on baby: This week the baby is about the size of a kumquat. It is only about an inch long and still weighs little to nothing. But organs are growing and even fingernails are forming. It still blows my mind the miracle of growing a baby!

Symptoms/Body Changes: Nothing has really change although I feel bigger then i did last week even though I'm sure i'm the only one who can really tell. But still no morning sickness which has been so wonderful!
Movement: Still No movement but I am patiently waiting. A little less patiently everyday but I know It'll happen when its supposed to and it'll all be with it. I just can't wait for that daily confirmation and affirmation that everything is going good.

Cravings/Aversions: I've had a few cravings here and there but its never the same things. It just hits and I know exactly what I wants to eat!

Getting ready for baby: We cleaned out the nursery to be and stored a bunch of stuff away in the attic this past weekend. It's still full of stuff but its all stuff for the upcoming garage sale!

What I miss: Being able to stay up past 9 to watch castle! I fade so quickly come evening times it makes it very hard to stay awake past 9 or even 8 somedays!

What I am looking forward to: At this point I just want to go back to the doctor and hear that little heartbeat again and be reassured that everything is progressing just the way it should be.

Weekly wisdom: Don't let what is happening in everyone else pregnancy or previous pregnancy make you wish differently for your own. Everyone is different and yours is special in every way because it is yours!

Well that's all for now!! Lots to do this week to get ready for our cruise! But I am so excited to vacation and just enjoy some time with the hubby!!
