The precious pitter-patter in my tummy has begun.  I started feeling the butterflies a lot this past week and yesterday I felt a true kick and again today.  Right now it is very subtle, but I know soon enough I will have a foot stuck in my ribs. lol!

Third times the charm...yakety yak

Something new has been happening with this pregnancy...started about two weeks ago.  I can't seem to brush my teeth without getting gagged (that is putting it nicely).  No matter what time of day it is I brush once, I get gagged...then I have to brush again which I also get gagged...of course this means I need to brush yet again and I am usually good by the third time.  I am not enjoying this.

Has anyone else experienced this?  I read on line that it is pretty common and my Mom said she did when she was pregnant with me, but I never did with Gabe.  Wondering if it is a baby girl omen???

12 week appointment & ultrasound

I was still too early for Dr. Banks to check the heart beat in the room, so he sent me for an ultrasound because he didn't want me to leave without hearing the heartbeat...though I did graduate from the probe.

Dr. Banks is such a great doctor!  I just love him!  He has been so wonderful through all my sickness and has taken such great care of me taking extra time to see me and even give me fluids himself when I was dehydrated.  I couldn't ask for a better doctor or nursing staff.

Baby is 11w6d - measuring 12w2d

Current Stats:
Due Date: April 17th 2013
Weight gain: -5lbs
Gender: ???
Heart-rate: 161bpm
Movement: Nothing just yet
How I am feeling: I have already started to feel a lot of stretching a pulling.  Pretty sure this is going to be a big baby...though if I am lucky I won't go to full term.  I had Gabe at 36w1d and he was perfectly healthy so I wouldn't be upset if this pregnancy ended before my due date.  Not to mention my best friend is about 5 weeks ahead of me in her pregnancy so it would be so cool if we could both deliver around the same time. :o)
Next Appointment: October 31st @10:15am Online Gender Predictor Says...

Average Heartrate for Gestational Age: 164.04

Time to go "Facebook official"

I am pretty sure everyone already knows...but just in case you don't....

Gabe's going to be a BIG brother!

As of 10/4 we are 11w6d...measuring 12w2d.

Baby is due April 17th 2013

Last week Gabe said it was a baby it is a baby sister.  My guess it is a boy, but we will find out for sure in 7 weeks.
