Cute Survey Stolen from Aimee

How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: When I checked last weekend I had gone from 122 pre-pregnancy (just made Weight Watchers Lifetime, how's that for irony) to 127 and change...might be a bit more now because I've had an appetite this past week or so. But still nothing I havent seen befor in terms of numbers on a scale.

Maternity clothes? Not yet. I am hoping to go another few weeks without them. I have a really cute outfit I want to wear to a friend's baby shower (Aimee!) and another friend's engagement party (both the same day) and I am hoping it still fits me for those events!!

Stretch marks? Negative. Let's keep it that way.

Sleep: I've been sleeping ALOT but not too well. I will usually fall asleep on the couch sometime in the evening, or go into bed between 730 and 830 just to lay down and unwind with some TV, and nod off there too. But I'm up again between midnight and 1 or so, then up again between 3 and 4 to pee (I never EVER get up to go to the bathroom. Now it has become a nightly ritual). Then up when Billy gets up at 430, and in and out of sleep from then until 7:30 when I get up.

Best moment this week: Reaching the second trimester.

Movement: Nothing yet but looking forward to it!

Food cravings: Have had more aversions the past few months. Chicken is totally disgusting. Can't stand asparagus, which I used to love. Don't even say the word to me. Have had cravings but nothing consistent. Like last night I was in such a mood for a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and fries from Wendys. But they are sporadic and fleeting.

Gender: Won't know for another 6 or 8 weeks or so .

Labor Signs: Negative.

Belly Button in or out? Still completely is it supposed to pop out? Great, more gross stuff to look forward to!!!

Wedding rings on or off? Still on.

What I miss: Sushi...the occasional glass of wine....and my migraine meds lol

What I am looking forward to: finding out if it's Little William or Williamina! (jk totally not naming it Williamina if it's a girl.)

Weekly Wisdom: It's true what they do forget how sick you were. Sort of. I remember being sick because how can you ever forget 24-hour constant nauseau....but it is now becoming a distant memory as my appetite returns and I like food again :)

Milestones: Second trimester!

We Broke the News!

While our immediate family, close friends, and probably a handful of Macy's employees (Fran has a big mouth), have known about the pregnancy for awhile, we "officially" told everyone (and by everyone, I mean Facebook), on Wednesday, October 13th.

I came home from work and was actually cooking dinner for the first time in a few months. I felt great. Not nauseous, not tired...just normal and great. I was in such a good mood I decided it was then that I wanted to share our great news with everyone, while I could enjoy it.

58 comments, 28 likes and countless wall posts

I still don't feel like it's real yet but sharing it with everyone and being able to freely talk about it made it feel a little more real....

10 Weeks

So I am finishing up my 10th week -- 25% down. The good news is I have been a LOT less nauseous this week than the 6 or 7 weeks before. Only had the urge to throw up once or twice, not all day, every day. So I consider that a successful week.

Had my third doctor visit last night. She said I am gaining weight, my blood pressure is good, my nauseau is subsidng and there is a good heart beat, so she feels comfortable switching me to monthly visits for the next few months, so my next visit is not until November 9th.

We already told most of our family and close friends. A few more weeks and we will tell everyone. I feel pretty confident at this point but we've already waited 10 weeks, what's 2 more?

Looking forward to the second trimester, having my appetite back, and feeling better. Everyone says you feel great the second trimester, and after the last few months, I could really use that!!!

That's all for now!
