Little Somethin' about my Little Somethin'

We went do see our new doctor (high-risk) on Wednesday, LOVED him! I felt he was very attentive, promised ultrasounds at every appointment, and spent a lot of time looking at our little one!  Throughout this whole process (infertility, trying to conceive, and conception), I have felt so BLESSED at the medical staff that God put into our lives! I could not ask for better care, really--it's something I will never take for granted.

Some of you women, especially those that had rough pregnancies, might hate me for putting this out there: I LOVE being pregnant. That's another thing I will never take for granted--I know too many women that struggled during their pregnancies, so I feel extremely blessed that my body has done so wonderful with it up to this point. God is so good, ALL the time!

11 WEEKS :)

How far along: 11 Weeks

Size of the Baby: Large Lime

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 0

Maternity Clothes: None

Gender: Unknown (Our doctor said we'd find out at our next appointment--yippee!!) Of course Alan says he prefers a BOY, but in my heart, I feel like it's a GIRL. Only time will tell...... And, of course, we don't really care either way!!

Movement: Too Early, but each ultrasound our little miracle has been super active. The last two times we've seen baby, he/she has been waving at us with the left hand!

Sleep: Last week, I had a rough sleeping week--I called it pregnancy insomnia. This week I've been completely exhausted and ready for bed at 7:30 each night! I love my sleep!

What I Miss: Nothing compared to being pregnant!

Cravings: Fresh Fruit and Veggies.....and, French Fries with LOTS of ketchup.

Symptoms: Tiredness! Fatigue!

Best Moment this Week: Seeing our little miracle again! Our doctor did a very thorough ultrasound this week, so we got to stare in amazement for a. long. time!  Baby waved at us during the ultrasound--plain as day. Even the nurse and doctor squealed when it happened! I'm so blessed!

I hope this was enough information to hold you over for awhile!  My belly is getting a little more "round," not like pregnancy round though---just fat round.  Pretty soon it'll be time to start taking pictures and watching us grow!! (So after I originally typed this, I figured I'd go ahead and let you see my bare belly---it might be the last time!!)

Oh Lindsi I am so excited for you!! There is nothing more exciting than this! I can't wait to read when you feel him or her move for the first time. Tres was like Alan but reversed. He wanted a girl so bad, but now having Ryker he tells me he wouldn't have it any other way, and that the next time he won't hope for one or the other. He didn't like wishing for something and then realizing it wasn't what he thought even though I told him not to. hehe Good luck and you are in my prayers!! Love the updates and can't wait to read more!
