!2 week Update

Well since I did this with Addison and I find myself looking back to compare I figure it would be neat to keep this same record for this little one :)

How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: +1 lb

Maternity clothes? None, probably not for a few more weeks

Stretch marks? None... so far

Sleep: Would be great if I didn't have to pee 5x a night :)

Best moment this week: Seeing our little wiggle worm via ultrasound again

Movement: Moving on the ultrasound but nothing I can feel yet

Food cravings: Taco Bell (Was the same with Addison)

Gender: I really do think this one is a boy but I was wrong last time so who knows

Labor Signs: None

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Having energy

What I am looking forward to: Getting in to the 2nd tri and not being sick!

Weekly Wisdom: Its hard to take care of a toddler and be pregnant so let your husband do as much as he is willing to do around the house, and its okay to not pick up the house everyday!

Milestones: Last week of the 1st trimester!!

Here is our little love bug from yesterdays ultrasound :)

Not the greatest of pictures cause our baby would not lay still but this is the baby mid flip with its little face looking forward.

Holy crap having a baby is expensive!!

OK so I had a different simpler insurance plan when I had Addison just pay my $3000 deductible and I was covered at 100% and I have from week 16 to 32 to pay it and be done.

Now I have a new job so different insurance and already the doctor bills are piling up and seem way more than what I paid with Addy.

So far my doctor wants $2200 before my 32nd week and the hospital just called saying they also need $1100 before February and to also save an additional $500 in case of a c section I would owe this on the spot at the hospital.

So were already at $3800 and this doesn't even include the anaesthesiologists 20% co insurance I will owe once the baby is here!

I really didnt think this through when we jumped on the lets have a baby train!

I dont even want to think about how im supposed to pay for a birthday party, gifts and Christmas with all of this as well! Can you say charge it!!

OK rant over :)

Baby #2 Update :)

Tomorrow we will be 10 weeks! 2 more weeks and I can finally relax and actually enjoy this pregnancy. This pregnancy has been so much different than Addison's. I'm not as tired as I was with her but boy have I been sick. I cant seem to make it through a whole meal with out gagging and just looking in the pantry or fridge bring it on every morning. Trying to gather Addy and I's lunches every morning has been the worst. I'm also dealing with a lot of break outs on my face which i didn't have to deal with before. So all around this 1st trimester has been kicking my butt but its all for a good reason :)

Yesterday (9 weeks 4 days) we had another doctor appointment and got to see the little one again. This baby is far more active than Addy was and was moving all over the place so I didn't get near as good of pictures this time but just seeing that healthy heartbeat is all this momma needed to see to feel at peace.

Here are both of the shots we got. Head is on the right in both pictures. I can make out a lot of it but for some I know it will just look like a blob :)

Looking up

Facing Forward

Our next appointment will be on July 26th at 3:00 pm (11 weeks 6 days). We will get one more peek at the baby then I will begin my monthly visits till closer to the end of the pregnancy.
