12 weeks ~ a little baby emerging!

Today was my 12 week check up. I was measuring 12 weeks 1 day but I am sticking with my original due date of Oct. 9th since I suspect it will change with each visit. The baby was screened for downs syndrome ect. and I had a few genetic tests to screen for risk for Down's, Cystic Fibrosis, ect. The heart was still beating nice and strong, about 155 beats/minute. Baby is now measuring 10.5 cm and was very active. Baby kept covering his face with his hands (I'm only saying "he" out of wishful thinking, we have no idea if it's a boy or a girl yet). It was very cute to watch.

This is my favorite picture from the ultrasound today. You can see the face, little tummy and legs. Looks like baby has made him/herself comfortable.

The ultrasound tech was really nice and gave me several shots. Here is a nice close up of the face and the ear. Baby is waving at us!

Here are a couple more good profile shots:

9 weeks!

Here is a picture of the baby at 9 weeks. Everything looked good at the appointment and the baby is healthy. The nurse told me that at about 12 weeks she'll try and listen for the heartbeat. Exciting! We could still see the heartbeat nice and strong on the ultrasound. The picture is a little blurry because of movement but the baby looks good. Our little alien... awww....

8 weeks 5 days!

Well it's almost 9 weeks now. I have been feeling super tired and crabby these past few weeks. My morning sickness is still hanging around but I feel ok if I wake up slowly and take my Zofran first thing in the morning. Usually I have to lay down for about 40 minutes after taking it before the urge to toss my cookies passes. I've been luck though, this is much milder than it was when I was pregnant with Mackenzy. Hopefully it will pass soon and food will be more appealing. Tomorrow is my 2nd doctor appointment and hopefully we'll get to hear the heartbeat! I also anticipate another ultrasound so I'll post a picture as soon as I can.
