Bag of chips

I was at Panera today just eating my lunch when I looked down at my chip bag and read the front... It said 1 oz. As I held it in my hands, I thought about it and smiled and realized that is how much our little baby weighs. I keep reading how much it weighs and how big it is but I've never had anything to compare it to until today. My baby weighs as much as a bag of chips at Panera. :-) Just brought a smile to my face and kinda made my day.

12 week Appointment

The appt went well. Heard the heartbeat. Still around 160bpm which is good. Haven't gained any weight yet. My pants are getting tighter though. Boobs have stopped growing for the moment, which is fine by me. the only question Tony asked the doctor is whether I should get a c-section or not. He wants me to get one but he's done no research on it at all. I only want one if this baby is huge or if I can't do it the normal way. We should see how it happens in 6 months I guess.
I outed myself on facebook today. Scary but I'm relieved to finally not care who knows.

Valentine's Day

So Tony and I wanted to go to a nice restaurant for V-day but neither of us got reservations in time so of course they were booked. So instead we ended up going to IHOP and a movie. I had one more request. If he went with me to Babies R Us to look at cribs, then I wouldn't make him register with me when the time came. That would be torture for him. So he agreed and we looked around and got an idea. I was very proud of him, he didn't freak out about the prices too much and he gave his honest opinion about stuff. We had fun making fun of some of the stuff people think they need and some of these toys are crazy. Too much stimulus for those babies but whatever.

Last night I woke up to a terrible pain in my chest. I can only assume it was heartburn. I've had it before a few times but never this bad. It only happens when I'm asleep too, which I think is kinda weird but what do I know. I also have this occasional pain in my stomach, it's a shooting pain but just happens randomly so I'm not freaking out too much about it. Hopefully all my fears will be put to rest on Thursday when we go to hear the heartbeat again. Can't wait to hear it.

7-10 weeks pics

I guess I've grown a wee bit in the past 3 weeks. There's a slight difference. Mostly at the top under my boobs. Don't know if that is bloat or everything getting pushed up. I've noticed that it isn't as comfortable sitting and resting my arms on my stomach anymore. That annoys me, I don't know where to put my arms now. I'm getting very uncomfortable already. I think it's mostly because of my back and neck injuries and all my ligaments are relaxing making it hurt worse. I can't even imagine how my body will feel in the coming weeks if it is this uncomfortable now. Hopefully I will get some energy soon so I can exercise a bit and get some strength back.

Off subject

When you know someone is going to die and you have time to process it, it is almost worse than if you just woke up one day and found out they died. There is a thought process to both ways but I think maybe the sudden loss is better. The shock of it almost takes away some of the pain and sadness. You don't have as much time to think about everything. What could I , should I or would I do. Maybe I'm just more emotional because I'm pregnant. Dying sucks either way.

Cop a feel

I have been feeling myself up everyday lately. My symptoms seem to be starting to fade and that is kinda freaking me out. I dont' get to hear the baby for 2 more weeks so the only thing I have to go on is my symptoms. Hence, why I am feeling my boobs all the time. I just caught myself doing it at work and laughed at myself. Just making sure they still hurt at least a little gives me reassurance. so Iw ill continue to cop a feel whenever I want.

I have been sleeping like a baby lately too. Except when I have to go to the bathroom. I wish I could sleep like this when I wasn't pregnant. Peeing 10x a days is not letting up but once again, it's a symptom so I'm fine with it.

I just can't wait to hear it again. 2 weeks is dragging on. We do get to go to a prenatal class next Wednesday. Hopefully that will be fun and we can learn some stuff too.
