If you look carefully, you’ll see Boo-boo the cat with the hubs. Boo was really excited to watch The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brian.

How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I think we’re about +2 or 3 now.
Maternity clothes? Gots myself some shorts this weekend. Sweet sweet release.

Stretch marks? The ones I had pre-pregnancy on my thighs are definitely getting darker. Flop.

Sleep: Sometimes good, sometimes horrid.

Best moment this week: More movement!

Movement: Uh, see above.

Food cravings: Today, it was a hot fudge malt with a sausage biscuit…at the same time.

Gender: Still thinking girl.

Labor Signs: Nooo.

Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: Beer.

What I am looking forward to: The next u/s!

Weekly Wisdom: Paying $60 for shorts is only okay when you DESPERATELY CANNOT FIND SHORTS.

Milestones: Yay for more movement!

15 weeks.

How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 1 overall.
Maternity clothes? In addition to the Gap jeans purchased last week, I dropped three hundo on 2 more pairs of jeans and 4 shirts at Macy’s yesterday. Ooops. But not really, because I love them all and they’re all SO COMFY!!

Stretch marks? Not that I am aware of!

Sleep: Last night was MUCH better than the previous night. Being sick AND pregnant poses a sleep issue.

Best moment this week: Hmmm, I guess continuing the registry task, but this time with the hubs. :)

Movement: None. I can’t wait to feel it though!

Food cravings: Sushi & Beer. Again.

Gender: This week I’m thinking boy.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: Being able to do anything active without getting a backache.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling movement!

Weekly Wisdom: It’s okay to spend a bunch of money on maternity clothes – you’re basically buying a whole new wardrobe!

Milestones: Going baby item browsing with the hubby.

The ultrasound pics!

There’s a real baby in there.

And it no longer looks like Mr. Peanut.

Today we had the NT scan. It was fabulous, aside from almost peeing myself and nearly passing out from starvation.

But the ultrasound. It will never stop blowing my mind. S/he was “standing” on their head, and the u/s tech had to try to get it to lay flat so she could get some measurements. The babe cooperated, and was moving all over the place, kicking and stretching and opening it’s mouth. So bizarre. All that happening in my ute and I can’t feel a damn thing.

Smudge’s heart rate was at 157bpm, and measuring right on time for a Nov 10th due date.

Then we had to wait almost 45 effing minutes for a lab person to come and draw like, a thimble full of blood. At this point, I hadn’t eaten in two hours which clearly is a no-no. So I was on the verge of passing out and finally THEN the chick comes by to draw my blood, with no apologies for making me wait 40 more minutes than I should have.

Oh well. We got a TON of pictures of the babe, as well as a 3/4D one…all of which need to be scanned. But, I took a picture of the one above while waiting for my blood to be drawn, so enjoy that until I get the rest scanned.

Oh, and most importantly, the initial neck measurements were all normal. We have to wait a week for the results of the rest. :)

I just can’t stop staring at this picture. I didn’t want the ultrasound to end. I could stare at that forever.

11 weeks.

How far along? 11 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +/- 0, still. I fluctuate a bit, but still hovering around the same.
Maternity clothes? Maternity capris only. I had to send back the green dress from ON because it was too big (and I would never grow into it). :( Now I have to find a dress to wear for a wedding in less than 2 months!

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: It varies. Some nights are good, others not so much. Trying to train myself to sleep on my left side, but always end up on my back.

Best moment this week: It was WARM! Yesss. And I actually vaccummed. Even better.

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: PB&J, Cocoa Krispies, pickles.

Gender: Who knows.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out?
What I miss: This week, I missed beer again. It was nice out, and we were sitting on our patio. That usually equals a beer.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the first trimester screening set up. Still waiting for the call back from the hospital on that one.

Weekly Wisdom:
Sinus headaches are a beeetch. Get Sudafed on them ASAP when they strike.
Milestones: Being so close to the 2nd Tri, I can TASTE it.
