Can I just tell you how much better this week has been? The fog of week 5 to 11 is starting to lift. It's like I am me again. I feel like singing like Ariel in the Little Mermaid-- ahhh ahhh ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. (sorry I can't sing for the life of me)
Not only that, but we got to see Baby Jaws on the ultrasound yesterday-- it was one of the most amazing experiences of my entire life. The little one looks like a mini human and was bouncing all over the place. If you've never experienced an ultrasound in action- it's a billion times cooler than looking at those black and white photos that people post on Facebook.
So the ultrasound was more than just to see the Baby. It was part of my three part genetic testing that I told you about last week. So far the numbers look fantastic and even the Doctor was excited to hear the results. One thing I did learn, age is just one factor in the results. At almost 32, I shouldn't worry about my age and the pregnancy.
Little Jaws was measuring just over two inches and is the size of a Precious Plum. I am starting to look real thick in the middle. My pants are actually fitting a little better because my bump has kind of moved up- if I wear my pants low enough, I look like I've been drinking too much beer over the last few months (I wish).
We also met with the Doctor yesterday, and it was just to chat. Other than my weight (I've gained none so far- thank you nauseousness!) and my BP, they didn't need to do anything to me. As my Doctor said, pregnancy is a really natural process so they try to interfere as little as possible. My Doctor did recommend switching off my prenatal for the next month to Vitamin B6 to get even more relief from the nauseousness and to get a bit more energy! Apparently, for now, the folic acid, which is important during pregnancy, has done it's work.
Feeling great and excited to jet off to Seattle this afternoon for a good friends wedding. I am going to try to squeeze into my rehearsal dinner dress from my wedding. It may not be pretty. Wish me luck!!
Here I am last night at 12w4d.
