This week was super fun. We had our first official appointment with our doctor this week. They did a sonogram where we got to see our little lima bean and could even see the fluttering of his/her heart. It was amazing! I cried, but honestly what DOESN'T make me cry these days. The nurse practitioner did some measurements and determined that the baby was 7 weeks and 2 days old...which matched EXACTLY with the timing I had figured out using NFP (which secretly gave me just a liiiiittle bit of satisfaction because the nurse practitioner got a bit saucy with us when we told her we used NFP. Aren't I entitled to be just a little bit smug that the due date I calculated was more exact than hers? I think so :) ) We also started to tell a couple more people this week that we are expecting, which was SO great! It feels good to spread the word a little bit.
|Forgive my wrinkly shirt...|
|Say hello to Baby J!!!|
How far along? 8 weeks! 2/3 done with my first trimester! woo woo!
Maternity clothes? Rockin' the yoga pants quite a bit, but let's be honest...that's nothing new.
Sleep: Frequent, but not very deeply :-/
Best moment this week: Seeing Baby J's heart beating on the sonogram!!
Miss Anything? A glass of wine sounds excellent...I guess it'll be a few more months before that's possible
Food cravings: Anything fresh! Never thought I'd see the day when a bunch of veggies would sound better than a Chick-fil-a sandwich but what can ya do? I guess as far as cravings go, I'm pretty thankful I'm craving healthy!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing specific that triggers it, but I have been majorly sick the past few days. Gross
Have you started to show yet: There's this little bump that will not go away no matter how hard I suck in...it's pretty firm too so I'm thinking it's due to baby and not burrito...
Gender Prediction: Still feel like it's a boy
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In (Jacob is praying it never pops out haha)
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, although I pretty much cry at the drop of a hat these days. That Target commercial where the kids get accepted to college?? Brutal!
Looking forward to: Having all of our close family and friends know!
