Whoosh, Whoosh, Woosh

I had my 1st official appointment yesterday with my CNM.  She went over my blood work, which all came back great, and I found out my blood type is O+ so I won't need to get the RH- shot.  After going over my blood work and doing a breast exam, where she found a lump that I need to get checked via ultrasound next week, she said "Let's see if we can hear this little one's heart beat!  It's like looking for a needle in a haystack!"  She said that it might take a bit to find it, so she put the gel on the doppler wand, felt around for my uterus (which is now above my pubic bone!) put it on my stomach, moved it once and WHOOSH WHOOSH WHOOSH - the best sound in the world!!!! The heart beat was so strong and perfect.  She said everything sounded good.  We could also hear Webby moving around because there was a lot of banging coming through the doppler.  It was great.  She said I have an active one in there and that it must be a girl because girls are always cooperative - we'll see if she is right!

I am scheduled for my NT scan on 11/3/11 - I can't wait to see Webby moving all around in there <3

2nd Belly Pic

I am officially 11 weeks today, so I decided to take another belly pic.  It's only been 4 days since my last belly pic but I feel like my belly already looks different...or maybe it's just the pants I have on today. lol.

11 Weeks

I'm a day early (so I am really 10w6d today) but I don't want to forget to do this tomorrow! :)

  • You can't see it, but she's moving fluidly and gracefully in there.
  • Her skin is see-through, but she's on her way to looking more like a baby.
  • Her fingers and toes aren't webbed anymore.
  • Tooth buds, hair follicles and nail beds are forming.

How far along?
11 weeks tomorrow

Maternity Clothes?
Yes!  Maternity shirts & a BE Band to wear over my unbuttoned jeans.

Still exhausted but I am able to fight my way through it now.

Best moment this week?
M/S seems to be going away - *fingers crossed!*

Food cravings:
Pepsi.  Mashed Potatoes.  Sweets. 

I'm guessing girl

Belly button in or out?

Still too early

What I miss?
Sleeping through the night - guess I won't be doing that again for a long time! LOL

What I'm loking forward to:
October 26, 2011 - hearing Webby's heartbeat! <3

Double digits!  I am almost to the end of 1st tri - it's flying by!!!

I had my first appointment yesterday, which basically turned out to be just paperwork, peeing in a cup and having blood work (7 tubes!) done.  My due date is officially May 15, 2012, so I am 10w1d :)  I have an appointment next week to have a full physical and hear the baby's heartbeat!  So excited!
