12 Weeks

How far along? 12 Weeks
Maternity clothes? None.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Trying to get comfy has become a little harder this week.  I am a tummy sleeper and its starting to hurt laying on my tummy.
Miss Anything? Planning a meal. I cant plan ahead more than what I'm eating in that moment. It never fails that if I do try to plan that's the only thing that makes me want to puke when it comes time to eating it.
Movement: None.
Food cravings: Cereal in the morning and PB&J for lunch. But again if I plan ahead and make myself a sandwich for work- once I'm there that sandwich makes me want to puke. Weird. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: That changes from moment to moment but right now what always makes me want to run to the bathroom is the thought of Chick-fil-a... I was violently ill after eating that a couple weeks ago and I have never fully recovered.
Gender: Ryan = GIRL 
              Kendra = BOY
Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms: Its funny because with Kenzie I didn't really have many symptoms but with this one, I am like a pregnancy book- everything that could happen is happening. So yes. All the same- sick, tired, uncomfortable, boobs hurt, gas pain, bowl changes, no energy... Doesn't pregnancy sound sexy?
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: You know after starting my little thing where I wake up everyday and tell myself I will be happy and have a good day has really made a difference. Even when I'm sick. No matter the random symptom. No matter if I fart in public. I am happy. I am happy to be where I am and I am happy for what is to come.
Looking forward to: Almost done with the 1st trimester!!!

This week I passed the 200 day mark. We are under 200 days until this baby comes into this world. I cant even explain how excited I am. We have been trying to figure out what day to go to a place called fetal foto and find out the sex of the baby. They can tell around week 15 what you are going to have. We went with Kenzie at 16 weeks and it was actually really cool. They put the baby on a big screen in front of you and spend a good amount of time letting you watch the baby move all over and hear the heart beat.  We are so excited to go again with this baby but we are having trouble knowing when to go.  We want both our parents there and we want to have a gender reveal party after. So trying to get every ones schedules lined up has been a little hard. But we are thinking the first week of April. So not this month but that's okay. 
As for taking some medicine for my nausea my doctor said he wanted to hold off since its not so bad that its effecting my weight gain. I am able to keep enough down that this baby is definitely growing. I have been taking some Bvitamin and some unisom but I don't think that's helping. I have also had to have most of my other meds changed so I am figuring out when the best time to take those is and as of this last week I think its at night time. Seems to be helping some.  I am on medication for my thyroid which is all messed up as well as for my depression and anxiety.  The stuff I was on pre-pregnancy isn't good for the baby after the 3 trimester so they switched me now which is the same as with Kenzie. They switched things around then as well. Then I am on those ferret iron pills and prenatal so I am maxed out with pills. I am doing my best to just relax and keep calm. Obviously I am ready to fall off the edge :)
Happy Day to be at week 12.
Cant wait for the next 28 weeks.

Hi my friend. My kids went to Fetal Photo when Cortney was 16 weeks, too. I wanted so badly to know if the baby was a boy or a girl before Christmas that year but Cort's doctor would not do an ultrasound until 20 weeks. It was a fun time being there with them when they found out. 2009 was a hard year for all of us so it brought me a lot of joy to see the 3-D version of our little Braxton back then. I hope the nausea will ease up next month. I'm so excited for you and Ryan. Your little one will bring such joy to you guys and to all of us. I can't wait to see him (or her!!) Hang in there!!
Love ya - Aunt Mary

That is so exciting to know that you will be able to find out before week 20 what the baby's gender is! I really hope that your nausea eases up soon! Hang in there, you are a strong woman!
