Had a great day today!

Chris is taking classes this weekend to learn how to ride (drive?) a motorcycle. So I took that time to go downtown to go shopping with my momma. First we got lunch, hey wiggle was hungry, and then we went to kohls. I got some great maternity clothes that are super comfortable. Granted I don't need them yet, but they were on sale! Seriously, why aren't we wearing elastic pants all the time?!? While trying on one of the shirts I came out of the dressing room and said "mom this is huge" She looked at me like I was nuts and I realized, oh yeah, I'm gonna get huge. lol

Later my dad made us an awesome dinner of fish and home made fries. Sooo yummy!

It's almost 9:15 so that means it's time for bed.


10wks 2d <---- Seriously? I can't believe I'm already 10 weeks.

Week 10

Holy crap, I can't believe I'm already at 10 weeks. It seems like we just found out, but really it's been 6 weeks. Yes mom, it's been 6 weeks for us knowing and 1 week you knowing.

I'm still feeling fantastic, just exhausted! I'm craving a lot of healthy stuff and my pants are actually getting looser. At night I've got a sweet bloat belly going on, but no baby bump yet. Hopefully in the next month or so I'll start to get one.

With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will too.)

How far along? 9wks

Total weight gain/loss: weighed in and I lost a lb and some. So now I'm up .8 pounds

Maternity clothes? nope

Sleep: I love it and can't get enough of it

Best moment this week: Telling my best friends.

Movement: yes, but I can't feel it

Food cravings: pasta and veggies!!

Gender: still thinking girl.

What I miss: nothing really

What I am looking forward to: Hearing the baby again in 2 1/2 weeks.

Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy every minute. Yeah, some of the symptoms suck, but it's worth it.

Milestones: Making it to 10 weeks!

Yay the important people know

We finally told my parent's last night. I made a photo book of Chris and I throughout our relationship. At the end of the book I put this picture. My mom was looking through the photo book, which seemed like it took 10 minutes. lol When she got to the page with Snoopy, she was like is that Michelle's dog (my best friend is 8 1/2 months pg) then she turned the page to see the ultra sound picture and screeched at the top of her lungs. Jumped up, hugged me and then proceeded to bawl. It was great. My dad was still trying to figure out what was going on since he didn't see the book. When he saw he was....wait I don't know, I didn't see it because I was still hugging my momma.
The couple sitting next to us at the restaurant as they were leaving said, "Thanks for ruining our dinner." "We were trying to eat our dinner, but all we could do is cry Congratulations."
I'm still waiting to tell work, last night I had a dream about it. I just couldn't shake the odd feeling and decided I should wait. Granted the rest of the world will soon know.

Week 9

Look at me, I remembered to do it and on time!

Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like... well... a baby!


How far along? 9wks

Total weight gain/loss: According to the dr's scale I'm up 4, but according to mine I'm up 2 Maternity clothes? nope

Sleep: I love it! Wish I could get some naps in during the day though

Best moment this week: Seeing and hearing the baby

Movement: yes, but I can't feel it

Food cravings: pasta

Gender: thinking girl, based off of the heart rate

What I miss: not having to make up an excuse as to why I'm not drinking-still the same

What I am looking forward to: Telling my parents tonight!

Weekly Wisdom: make sure to eat small meals often

Milestones: still being pregnant and seeing Wiggs

I have someone for you to meet

Here is wiggle! I'm measuring 8w6d, but they are going to keep my due date so I'm still 8w4d. We saw the heart beat right away and then the tech turned on the sound. The heart rate was 171 and the most amazing sound I've heard. I'm absolutely in love with this little baby.

We finally convinced my in-laws that we had to see them tonight. We got them a frame that says baby and put one of the u/s pictures in there. My mother in law started to open it and was like oh it's a frame and then she looked at and said "Oh!!!" She then handed it to my father in law and he was like oh that's really..."Oh!!!!!" Both of their jaws dropped and they hugged us right away. It was amazing to finally be able to tell them.

I can't wait to tell my parent's on Thursday!

2 Firsts

I had my first major breakdown last night. I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep and a huge wave of being in love with Chris. I wanted him to come up and snuggle with me for a few minutes while I fell asleep. So I sent him a text saying I needed him. (Much easier to do that then scream for him, or fall out of the bed to open the door.) He came up and asked what I wanted and I said to snuggle. He said no, and I tried to remind him that he's leaving until Monday and I wanted to spend time with him. He responded back with "You're driving me to drink." I lost it! I couldn't stop crying, but I don't know why I was crying. Well yeah I know why I was crying, but pre-pregnancy that wouldn't have bothered me. I mean I cried for a good 10 minutes.

He did finally apologize, but I think he now thinks I'm just a crazy pregnant lady. hahaha

My 2nd first is waking up at 3:30 to pee. Normally I just wake up at 6:30 for the day, but nope not today. I foresee many, MANY nights ahead of me getting up at that time.
