I had my baby's first picture taken today :-) Though mind you, she looked like a gray mass in the shape of a bean. It was very surreal. It was like wow, that is actually growing inside of me! I am 10 weeks and 6 days according the the ultrasound. My OB thought I would be almost 12-13 weeks by now. I was suppose to be able to have the 1st trimester screening done to detect for down's syndrome, but I am not far along enough yet. So I get to go back on August 13th for another ultrasound...which I don't mind at all :-) When I go back, I'll be 12 weeks and 3 days. My due date is Feburary 22nd. I've gained about 2-4 lbs so far. The scales bounce up and down horribly! My size 14s are really uncomfortable and have since pulled out my 16s and 18s. Thank goodness I held onto them! I don't have any work clothes in those sizes though so I had to go buy some things. This weekend is the tax free weekend so I might go get a couple more outfits that I feel comfortable wearing. I'm at the point where I can't stand anything to touch me. Thankfully the nauseous went away a few weeks ago, though since then, I have been eating everything in sight. All I have really been wanting is ceral with milk. Special K makes a protein plus cereal which is pretty good and probably the healthiest of all cereals and it has 10 grams of protein per 3/4 c. Which when you eat with milk, it goes straight through you. I usually add a banana. At any rate, I stay in a perpetual state of sleepiness. When I'm not at work, I'm usually asleep. I even come home on my lunch hour to take a 20-30 minute nap. Come home at the end of the day and sleep for 2-3 more hours and then sleep all night with the exception of getting up every 2 hours to pee. I'm hoping that I'll get my energy back in the next couple of weeks and start exercising again. I feel like the biggest sloth ever b/c I'm too tired to exercise. But then I think, I'm growing a human being and I go into this state of wonderment and amazement and giddiness almost and feel better instantly. I think of the love I feel already for her. I'm really wanting a girl so maybe if I go ahead and give it a gender, it will be what I want hahaha. Darren and I have already decided on names too... Madeline Marie if she is a girl and Nicholas Lee if she is a boy lol. We decided to stick with the first names that we both liked and agreed upon instead of just dwelling on it for the next 6 + months. Well.... I think that is it as for an update. As soon as I can figure out a way to get the ultrasound pics online, I'll post those.
