How Far Along? 12 weeks
Maternity Clothes? Nope. Just my old "tight" clothes, lululemon pants (these are my saviours!) and my one size bigger pants. Maternity clothes seem a long way off at this point.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep? Good! Not as many pee breaks anymore!
Best Moment of the Week? First OB appt yesterday! And NT scan! My OB was awesome. He is a super nice young gay guy and he is super flamboyant but down to earth and totally made me feel sooooo comfortable. He was recommended to me by a few people and I totally see why! They didn't do much at the appt, just asked a ton of questions and gave me an info package and answered my 10 trillion questions. Then they sent me to ultrasound for my NT scan and then to blood to get the corresponding blood work for the NT screening. I asked them to show me how to use my doppler but they said it was too early to bother with it so just to bring it to my next appt in 4 weeks and they will for sure show me where to find it! Also got the go ahead to STOP THE PROGESTERONE SUPPOSITORIES!!!! However, I'm just so scared to stop them so I am going to keep taking one at night for another couple weeks (just so I psychologically feel ok about it! ) I also got the ok for sex.....now I'm nervous. I know I'm being silly but I'm scared I will bleed when we do it and then I will freak out again. Ugh....
At the NT scan the ultrasound was ON TOP of my belly ! OMG! So happy not to be wanded! And our little baby was jumping around, yawning, sucking his thumb and looking like an actual BABY! The NT measurement was great. Apparently less than 3mm is good, ours was 0.9mm! Of course we have to wait for the blood work to find out our risk of downs syndrome and other trisomies but that measurement is a great start! All in all yesterday was a GREAT day!
Food Cravings? Watermelon! We ate a whole big one just the 2 of us (mostly me!) over the weekend!
What I miss? Really gross but I have to admit it....I quit smoking cold turkey a year and 8 months ago when I stopped bcp. Now that I'm actually pregnant and I know I CAN'T have a cigarette, I have been craving one! I know I wouldn't have one even if I wasn't pregnant but I think just the fact that I totally CAN'T have one is making me want one more! Plus the patio season is terrible for ex-smokers!
What I'm looking forward to? I don't know! I guess my 20 week u/s (a long way off!!!) to find out the sex!!!
Weekly Wisdom: I got nothin'
Milestones: 12 weeks! End of T1!!!!
Emotions: More relaxed...for now! Oh and this is not an emotion but since being pregnant I am getting a headache EVERY day! And I NEVER usually get headaches! I hate it! I asked about it and he said its normal....and he said I can take Tylenol, but i'm trying to only use that as a last resort!
I feel really lame b/c I have only been posting my weekly updates and haven't been commenting much this week! I have been super busy but now I vow to get back to commenting and supporting all of my lovely bloggie buds!
Oh and one more thing (and an embarrassing one...) Does anyone who has been or is pregnant know what is up with the shooting pains I have been getting occasionally in my vagina? My sister (the doc) says lots of her patients complain of it but I still don't get it. Anyone have any experience with this? Round ligament pain? It's weird.
Gotta get back to work! Enjoy your days! And its already Tuesday!!!!
