Week 11 Photo

Whoops forgot to put this up yesterday.

Week 11 belly photo update.

You'd be surprised how many people email you asking for a photo update. Super weirdness.

Week 11 Checkup

Ok so just back from the dr for my normal monthly check in.
Baby's heartbeat is great at 166 beats. We actually got to monitor some movement as well. She said I have a very active little baby.
The best part was the nurse telling me she was thankful I was a skinny person b/c it makes it easier to register the heartbeat and movement this earlier in pregnancy. Hehe, she thinks I"m a skinny person. Totally awesome.

And to my crazy family that is freaking out that I've already put on too much weight.... I've actually lost weight from my 1st appointment. So there! Just because I"m showing more than most people at this far along does not equate to weight gain.
We are measuring a week ahead of schedule so maybe we will have an early October baby instead of a mid October. Who knows.

Week 9 and the miracle drug

The week 9 belly. We are coming along. Maybe I shouldn't have taken this photo with a bulky sweater on, man my arms look huge!

And let's talk miracle drugs. The only thing between me, my food, and throwing it up.
The doctor got worried when I wasn't able to eat anything and gave me these. Interesting side note, these pills are for chemotherapy patients!
Oh and for the last week I"ve had a raging headache and been trying to figure out what caused it, not until I took this picture did I notice the giant bright red sticker clearly saying "may cause headaches". Duh!
So I guess it's one or the other. Right now I'm taking not throwing up everything. This may change, pending severeness of the headache.

Ohhh the bump has started

The bump is here. I had to start telling people much earlier than planned.
I mean how can you hide the belly bump?
This is 2 days shy of week 8 belly bump.
Something tells me it's going to be a big baby! I didn't think you were supposed to be showing already, but oh well :)

First Viewing

Back from our first Ultrasound Visit.
Little baby Ott has a healthy 133 beats per minute heartbeat.
Confirmed due date with the Doctor. October 15th :)
Everything else looked great

The testing begins :)

Today it was official. Not just one test, but actually 3 tests were used just to be sure :)
Happy Valentines Day
