12 Weeks :)

How far along: 12 weeks

Weight Gain: +8

Maternity Clothes: yep, pretty much, although I am still wearing some of my old flowing tops and tanks

What's up with my body: My belly feels like it rose up, its not so low anymore. Still pulling and stretching every so often, nausea if I don't eat (but I am pretty good at eating so I avoid it) I have been a little more tired then usual but I think it's because I worked a little more than usual this week. Wonderful CM still here! 
Movement:  felt a weird roll under my Doppler the other night, I was pushing down slightly and it almost felt like it rolled out from under it, at the same time I lost the reading? So...I donno! I know it's early and all the freaker outters on the forms  say..no way its too early it was just gas..bla bla bla.. I don't wanna hear it, I know what I felt! :) (plus it only happened one time, I have felt nothing since) 

Gender: I now am leaning toward girl! haha! 

What we have for Baby: Clothing, boy and girl, a few books and a teddy bear. Plus my mom has made a crocheted Giraffe, Rabbit, Lamb and Teddy Bear! We browsed the Babies R Us catalog a few times, just to get some ideas on what we like, and I have started a file folder with all the nursery themes we enjoy!  I am glad we are buying stuff and celebrating this baby! I think it makes us feel closer to S/he. Plus I don't want to worry my pregnancy away, I would rather celebrate! So Celebrating It Is! 

What I'm looking forward to:  MONDAY!! My 12w2d appointment with Dr. W!! I hope they do an ultrasound! If not I may just get an elective one at this wonderful office by my house! 

Best Moment this Week: Well there are a couple! 1st being waking up today and Scott saying Happy 12 weeks babe! and My mom texting me saying Happy 3 months! :) Also a good friend moved back to town this week. AND....I got to pull my last ring on my Chain!! I attached a short video of that moment! haha. 
Time to make a new chain! This one will be a 20 week mark chain! which will also be the Gender Reveal Party Time! Wooowhoo!

    I LOVE the little video of the chain! Remember when it was trailing down the wall?!
    I am so glad that you have chosen to celebrate every moment. Worrying doesn't help anything and it's sure as heck not as much fun!
    Love you 3!
