11 Weeks...

Not sure where I left off last time and I'm to lazy to go back and check so I'll start from where I can remember.
I had an ultrasound 2 weeks ago to check the baby and hear the heartbeat again and it was fantastic.
The baby is starting to look like an actual baby :)
We are starting to wonder if your a boy or girl because mommy is obsessed with old wives tales and she hasn't had morning sickness yet and people keep saying your a boy but honestly I would be happy with either one. As long as you are a healthy baby.
Mommy has been trying to watch what she eats but she is craving sweets, pizza hut breadsticks and especially national coney island hani's...she can't get enough.
Daddy talks to you every single night and rubs my belly and it's the sweetest thing. He doesn't let mommy carry anything heavy and always watches out for her.
I have been crying at the littlest thing and it's so hard.
My lower back has been hurting the last few days pretty bad on and off.
It's fireworks season with 4th of July right around the corner and daddy has been going crazy lighting off fireworks, he's a little bit of a pyro ;) so were hoping you'll like fireworks!
We can't wait to find out what you are so we can start shopping and start getting the nursery together.
I am so excited to find out and people keep telling me I'm crazy and I should wait but I just keep telling them I want to shop and buy the appropriate things for you.
Funny story when your auntie Jessie had baby Stefan (your cousin) they kept telling her she was having a girl. She had a girl baby shower and bought all girly things, well surprise he came out a boy! Everyone was in shock. I watched your auntie Jessie give birth and I thought that was the most traumizing experience I have ever seen and couldn't imagine doing it myself. But I'm sure when I'm there in the hospital bed I will change my mind.
Also my due date is right around your cousin's Stefan birthday so were hoping you come a little bit earlier than expected so you don't share the same birthday. It's not fair to either one of you. And Christmas is 3 weeks earlier so we don't want you to get jipped for that. So sorry lil baby.

Well I have 2 weeks and I will be out of my first trimester.
I can't complain about anything as I have felt great thus far.
Everyone is excited about meeting you and can't wait for you.
You are one of the last babies in both families unless auntie Jessie decides to have more, haha!
You are going to be the 8th grandchild on daddy's side and the 4th on mommy's side. So your going to be one spoiled baby :)

9 almost 10 weeks...

Today I am 9 weeks 6 days and still in complete shock!
My clothes are getting a little to tight on me so I had to cave in and start buying maternity clothes.
I didn't want to buy them this early but I had no choice.
I tried wearing a belly band but it wasn't cutting it.
I've had no morning sickness...knock on wood! It's still early.
I've only had some nausea, really bad dizzyness, some headaches and that's about it.
I've been keeping a journal at home and documenting everything as I go along because I'm not share if I will be able to do this again. I've also been trying to do weekly belly shots but with all the people in my house I feel uncomfortable so I've been slacking. I need to stick with this as I bought a template to make my own weekly book up until I give birth.
I went for an ultrasound about 3 weeks ago and go to listen to the heartbeat for the first time and it was amazing. I cried listening to it. I go back tomorrow for another one and this time Kevin gets to come with me so that will be nice. Since he wasn't at the first appt with me I recorded it but listening to it in person is so much different than listening to a recording. Dr said I'm measuring well and actually more than what they thought so with how much the baby has grown my due date is now Jan 12 but the dr said it didn't matter so their keeping it at Jan 17.
I've been thinking and I know closer to the date I'll know more information but I hope to start taking off work starting Jan 1st and taking at least 12 weeks off. But depending on if I go into labor early or not. Which by the way scares the crap out of me.
I watched my sister give birth and that was so traumatizing not sure if I'll be able to do it. Lol.
I will update again in about a week until then have a great weekend everyone!
