Week 12

Your Baby's Development
Your baby's brain continues to develop, and tiny fingernails and toenails start to form. Vocal cords are formed this week, which is the last of your first trimester.
Your baby's kidneys are functioning! After swallowing amniotic fluid, your baby will now be able to pass it out of the body as urine. And the intestines will make their way into the abdomen, since there is room for them now.
Well we have hit week 12! Which is very exciting for us. Today we met with my OB doctor for the first time, we really really liked her. She is pretty awesome. I still have not gained any weight or gained back any I have lost, I go back in 2 weeks for a weight check. I still have really bad days and then I have okay days. There are some days when I cant even keep apple juice down and other days when I eat a little. I am hoping that gets better soon, I miss my food!
We had an ultrasound today, the baby was moving around like CRAZY...he/she was flipping and flopping all around and had its hands over its face, very cute. It finally seemed real today, maybe I will start to relax, but proably not. We saw both arms and legs and spine and head, and even little fingers. The ultra sound pic above is from today but still kindof hard to see what is what. (the head is on the left) We are beyond thrilled and cant wait to meet the little one. Oh the heartrate today was 158.
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope I can eat some of the great food! But if not I have so much to be thankful for this year, our little one, my great husband, my awesome family, my faith, my dogs, our new house.............Have a great holiday week!
