I had another ultrasound today, for our first trimester screening, and an OB appointment. All is going awesome and baby looks great! It's the size of a lime this week and getting bigger by the second. I'm amazed at the detail we can see in the ultrasound pictures, fingers and legs and feet and a facial profile. It's crazy! 

I'm still feeling great, no real complaints to speak of. I feel like I get irritated easier than when I'm not pregnant, and I really do thing pregnancy brain is legit because sometimes I forget the stupidest things. Other than that, we're doing good! I'm at that in between stage, feeling chubby and squishy and my jeans don't fit but maternity clothes are too big... I'll be happy when that's over! Here's a picture from today. No real bump yet, just a sweet muffin top :)

Look how cute the baby is getting! I can't believe that we could actually see a profile and a FOOT! The little bean was wiggling all over in my belly on the ultrasound and it was SO NEAT! You'd think I'd never seen a baby before :)

Well, I had my first appointment with my OB yesterday and all is looking great with the bean! Here's a picture:

His/her head is on the left, and the heartrate was 169 beats per minute. My OB was awesome and the guys are excited that we've "graduated" from the RE to the "real doctor". Just a couple more weeks and we're in the safe zone! 

I've been feeling pretty good, no real nausea. I've started getting some headaches and feeling more tired over the last week or 2, but that's about it. No weight gain and I'm not showing yet. I've been craving healthy stuff (YAY!) like fruit, yogurt, cheese, frozen yogurt with fruit, and not very much sweet stuff. Let's hope it stays like this so I don't gain a million pounds! 

Thanks for reading

We're getting closer to the end of the first trimester, just a few more weeks! I had an ultrasound yesterday and here's the little bean! Look how much it's grown!
