12 weeks

Today we are 12 weeks pregnant. At our most recent doctor's appointment we were able to hear the heartbeat again. The heartbeat measured in at 166. The doctor was a little concerned with my weight loss, but what do you expect when I can't keep food down?!?! I know that it will all be worth it in the end! The doctor is trying me on a new medicine. Fingers crossed that it will work!

8 weeks

Today I'm 8 weeks pregnant. This past week we had another visit to our baby doctor, and we got to see the baby for the first time. It was amazing!!! You could see the little heart beating on the screen. Everything was perfect! The baby is the exact size it should be and in the perfect location.

My biggest pregnancy complaint is the nausea!!! The doctor did give me medicine for it, but it doesn't always work. It isn't just morning sickness; it's all day sickness! It makes me the maddest when I eat out and then get sick. I feel like I just wasted my money on food I don't get to keep, but I know it will be all worth it in the end.

According to all the articles I've read, I really shouldn't be showing. However in reality the bottom of my stomach is already pretty hard and starting to pudge out. My normal clothes are very tight. Luckily Aunt Dale bought me some bigger pants for Christmas.

The baby had a pretty good Christmas for not even being here yet. Michael's mom got the baby a pair of shoes, bibs, airplane spoon, and a bear. Aunt Midge bought the baby a monkey, and Jamie bought two onsies (a 0-3 mth and 3-6 mth size) that say My Aunt Rocks.

Jamie and Carlos also got us the cutest little pregnancy ornament.
