YAY so excited these are finally up!!

Just to re-cap: I found out I was pregnant Jan 19th. I have a history of losses and didn't know when my "real" LMP was due to irregular cycles since November. I was on birth control for about 3 years and had been pretty regular. Something just didn't feel right so I took a pregnancy test and low and behold it came back positive. Both my husband and I were in shock!

Fast forward to today and I am 10 weeks pregnant! Time has gone by pretty quick! I haven't had a whole lot of MS but do feel nauseous every now and then. The biggest symptoms I have had are sore boobies, gas pains, and fatigue. The gas pains are terrible

I have my next appointment scheduled for March 20th where I will meet with the doctor and have some screening tests and bloodwork done. They will also do the NT ultrasound on the same day. I'm looking forward to seeing our little blob on the screen again, although I anticipate it will look like a baby then a blob this time

Being pregnant with a cold absolutely blows. Can't breath, can't sleep throat hurts runny nose and can't do squat about it! I'm a little bitter haha Anyways, I had my OB panel of bloodwork and urinalysis done today. The nurse couldn't hit my vein (which is huge) so now I'm gonna have a bruise and my arm is sore. I've never had anyone not be able to hit my vein. I mean they are like huge ropes haha I've been very moody and hungry lately. A friend asked me at work today if I was showing yet and I said not really to which she replied "that's what I thought but so and so said you were". So the I was immediately thought that I must look fat and got grumpy hahaha oh the joys of being pregnant!

The last week has been tough. I'm starving all the time and I'm afraid to weigh myself to see the damage that's been done. I feel super bloated all the time and my face has started breaking out again. I've been eating junk food lately and I think that has a lot to do with how I'm feeling and my face breaking out. This week is vowed to start eating better and I would like to start going for walks outside with my pups so I hope the weather stays somewhat warm. I had to work this weekend and my boss won't let me comp out any of my time so I will have another 60 hour week. I think these longs days are starting to wear on me. I've had lower back pain for about 3 days now and it's so uncomfortable. Thursday I have my NT scan so I'm pretty excited about that. It will be the first ultrasound my husband gets to come too hopefully all goes well and we can actually hear the babies heartbeat this time.

So I had my Nt scan today and I think everything went okay. They didn't tell me otherwise anyways got to see our baby (and it finally looks like a baby!)! Heart beat was 156 and was measuring ahead at about 12 weeks 5 days. Doc is still leaving my due date at 10/1/14 though since she said the scan I had at 6 weeks was the most accurate for gestational age. The baby was squirming around and being super cute for the scan. We got to hear the heartbeat and it sounded good and strong. It was very exciting for both my husband and I!

Found the baby's heart beat on the Doppler this morning. Took me forever I find it! I've been trying for a couple days now and this morning it finally happened. I woke my husband up just so he could hear it too. It's so exciting!!!In other news, I just feel fat latey. Had to break down and buy some more maternity pants because not even my "fat" pants fit anymore. *sigh*

Well I'm definitely popping out a bit. I've noticed it more over the last few days. Not sure how I feel about it haha. I still just feel fat at this point! I feel like my butt and thighs are huge lately and I've been starving so I've been trying to make all my snacks be healthy but I still feel like I have thunder thighs haha

Otherwise, been feeling pretty good. Fatigued every now and then bug I've been able to stay up past 8:30 so that's a bonus!

Oh and I'm officially in the second trimester now

You're looking so good! You can tell you're starting to poke a little. And I know what you mean about the thighs. If I don't at least walk a little I start feeling a little flabby haha! Happy 2nd tri.

Well I've been really lazy about posting lately! I have a few belly pics to post that I've been slacking on. Not a whole lot has changed for me symptom wise. Last Tuesday I severe severe gas pains and was convinced that I was going to die! After taking some mylanta gas pills and having some pressure relieved I felt much better . Saturday I actually threw up at work which was pretty embarrassing! It's that first time I've actually thrown up hahaha! I had another doctor appointment today and all seems to be going well. I have to go back for the second part of the screening blood work but other than that no more appointments until the big anatomy scan on May 16th. I can't wait to find out what we are having!! So far I've gained 12 lbs I have been eating pretty terribly and blame most of the weight gain on that and not actual baby. Tomorrow I'll be 16 weeks and will hopefully get around to posting some pics!

Thanks Hannah! I definitely do not feel small at all. I feel so fat all the time particularly in my legs! Like both of my entire legs just seem to be getting larger! So frustrating! I definitely need to keep up on my cardiovascular exercising!
