Baby Size: Small measuring tape, plum
Weight: 124.2, up from last week.
Symptoms: I've actually felt worse this past week than I have most of the pregnant. I had horrible cramping (probably gas pains), nausea & a headache that made me throw up. I even took a Tylenol (store brand) on Sunday.
I've actually been pretty hungry the last few days. I eat more often which helps keep the nausea away. I'm still limited in what sounds good though.
Maternity Clothes: I just got some jeans from my sister so I will probably be busting them out in the next few weeks. For now the hair tie trick is working.
Cravings/Food Aversions: Still no cravings, but lot's of aversions.
Belly Button: In
Gender: Unkown, and no feelings either way.
Name: Have a few in mind.
Milestones: Hearing the heartbeat on the Doppler. No more progesterone!
Looking forward to: No more progesterone side effects.
What I miss: Taking medicine when I want without thinking about if it's safe for the baby. Asprin has always been my go to, but it's a no-no now.
Appointments: April 16 for my 16 week and April 30 for the a/s!!!!
Misc. I had my 12 week appointment today and my Nt scan today as well. The 12 week appt was seriously 5 minutes. I peed on a stick and heard the heartbeat via Doppler. It was 162. That was it.
And then I had 2 1/2 hours before the nt scan. So I sat in the lobby and killed time. I couldn't go home because the appointments were only a few blocks apart and the weather sucks big time today. And of course my first appointment was really early so I dealt with rush hour traffic in icy and snowy road conditions.

It is crazy how different my ultrasound pictures look. From 6 to 8 to 12 weeks the baby grew so much.
Then I had the blood work drawn and the wait at the lab was ridiculous. It was so crowded and I got the last seat wedged in a corner, next to a really loud family. All I wanted to do was eat and go to bed at that point.
