12 weeks yeah buddy!

And I have been sick. Still. I guess I never got over this virus when I posted back at the beginning of last month! I came down with the cough again the night before thanksgiving. And have had it (along with laryngitis) since. At least this time my throat doesn’t hurt. I’m so sick of being….sick. But the babies sell to be doing ok from what I can hear through the Doppler. So that’s a plus! I could find them pretty quickly until a few days ago. Now they move so much it’s hard to keep them on the doppler. I can hear them move constantly. I just wish I could feel them for the extra reassurance. Soon enough though. I have the reg OB tomorrow for just a checkup with his doppler, then Friday I have the NT scan with the specialist. I can’t wait to see them and make sure they are ok. I hope they give pics so I can send them. Mommy and daddy are going to come down New Years week if I can schedule the next appt and u/s for the 2nd or 3rd. Otherwise it will have to be just mommy coming down. So my fingers are crossed for one of those dates.
I’m starting to show at this point which mommy is happy to see. But I’m not in maternity clothes yet. Whew!
Other then my virus I’m feeling good and ready for the second trimester to start. As of today I am no longer on any of my meds anymore either! My last shot was Sunday, my last mouthful of pills yesterday (Monday), and my last two suppositories (bleh) last night. I’m a little nervous that my body still needs the meds but I guess I need to trust that its ok and the babies will be fine. 🙂
Gestation: 12 weeks 1 day
Weight: up 1 to 2lbs
Symptoms: slightly sore boobs, less of a sensitive gag reflex.
Cravings: Mexican food, anything with tomatoes.
Aversions: the thought of any huge meal, the smell of eggs or bacon, chicken. (That last one is a hard one for me since I basically live off chicken under normal circumstances).
Mood: slightly stressed but getting better every day. Last week was a tough week!
Dr updates to come!
