Tuesday I had my first appointment with my OB-GYN and it went great! I wasn't sure if I'd get an ultrasound since I had one at 8 weeks, but I did! Right when we started the ultrasound, baby started flailing his/her arms up and down. It was the coolest thing ever! Larry and I couldn't believe baby could move so much already. I read that even though I couldn't feel it, baby was beginning to move, but I guess I didn't expect him/her to move that much! I think he/she is going to be a dancer like mama!
The doctor said that everything looks great and baby is measuring right on track. He sees no chance of a high risk pregnancy, which is such a relief. I'm so excited to watch and feel baby grow. At the next ultrasound in 2 months we will be able to determine baby's gender! What do you think baby Wallace is??

(Blurry picture this week- blame it on Larry)
How far along? 12 weeks + 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Plum or lime
Total weight gain: Down 2-3 lbs from my starting weight
Maternity clothes? Wore my new maternity shorts and some red maternity pants that my mom got me from the Goodwill last week.
Sleep: Going down hill. My back is starting to hurt in my sleep. Thinking about ordering the Snoogle pillow soon.
Best moment this week: Seeing baby on the ultrasound!
Miss Anything? My energy and the ability to actually get things done.
Cravings: None lately.
Symptoms: Oh my goodness, I have been good for nothin' this week up until today. I've been feeling nauseated and super tired in the evenings.
Looking forward to: The second trimester!!

How far along? 10 weeks + 3 days
Baby is the size of a: Date (I have no idea what that is to be honest)
Total weight gain: Still down 4-5 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I actually went to Old Navy today to look for some maternity pants for work or some jeans. No luck, but I did get some maternity shorts!
Sleep: I had a couple bad nights of sleep this week, but I've still been sleeping good for the most part.
Best moment this week: I had an awesome, realistic dream about being in the hospital holding baby. SHE was absolutely beautiful and perfect. I can't wait to find out if my dream is true and baby really is a girl.
Miss Anything? Still missing my appetite.
Cravings: ICEEs! I had 3 last week and 2 so far this week.
Symptoms: The nausea has calmed down a lot THANK GOD. Food still hasn't been appetizing. Heartburn is little worse this week. Indigestion is constant. I can't eat anything that I don't want to belch up for the rest of the day. And this week the tiredness is back. Baby must be growing a lot this week!
Looking forward to: My first appointment with my OBGYN in less than 2 weeks!

"your uterus is the size of a grapefruit this week" so where else would that grapefruit fit?!
How far along? 9 weeks + 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Grape
Total weight gain: I'm actually down about 4ish pounds.
Maternity clothes? Nope, but will definitely be needing some bottoms soon!
Sleep: Thankfully sleep is still good. Right now I only wake up once in the night to pee, and that was mostly normal pre-pregnancy
Best moment this week: Actually being able to eat a full meal at IHOP Sunday after church. I had New York cheesecake pancakes, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, and sausage links, and I almost finished the whole meal and didn't even feel sick! It was definitely an accomplishment for how little I've been able to eat the past 2 weeks.
Miss Anything? My appetite and being able to enjoy food.
Cravings: How about the opposite of cravings.. all food sounds gross lately.
Symptoms: Sing it with me- nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach,
diarrhea. Yepp, I have all of the Pepto bismol commercial symptoms other than diarrhea. The nausea has been the worst. It's been pretty constant for over a week now. I can barely eat anything and like I said, nothing sounds appetizing lately.
Looking forward to: This nausea going away soon and getting my appetite back! Oh please dear God, let it be soon!
