It's really a baby!! - 12 weeks

Today we FINALLY got to have our ultrasound.. the one that we missed due to the ultrasound tech going on vacation (HMPH!). Well it was AMAZING! The last ultrasound we had was at 7 weeks and all we saw was a little blob with a heartbeat. Though we were amazed that there was a heartbeat already, it still didn't feel quite real yet... until TODAY!

Today we were totally in awe! Our baby ACTUALLY looked like a baby! As soon as the ultrasound tech put the sonogram wand on my belly, the baby started to move immediately! It was so active! The tech even said herself that the baby was making her job so easy and that it was one of the best she's done in awhile! The baby turned, rolled around, and even looked like it waved at us lol My husband and I both got teary looking at the baby because it was so cute and playful. It was beautiful!

In a little while, the baby settled down a bit for the tech to take the necessary measurements, which all came up normal PRAISE GOD! Then my husband started making me laugh because he swore up and down that the baby already has his nose LOL Needless to say I was cracking up and this riled the baby up all over again! The baby started kicking and moving around, and finally rested with it's cute little hand on its cheek! What a miracle!

As much as we were annoyed and frustrated that we couldn't see the baby earlier this week, we totally forgot about all of that once we saw the precious gift that the Lord has blessed us with. It was DEFINITELY worth the wait! And of course we had to celebrate by going out to Friendly's afterwards, hehe! Hey it's for the baby! The baby was hungry! ... or at least that's what I tell myself everyday! I'm so glad that I'm finally entering my 2nd trimester and feeling so much better! My appetite is better, and my energy is increasing each day! Dare I say it - I'm actually starting to enjoy pregnancy! GASP!! :) :) :)

Patience, my dear! Patience!

Well yesterday I learned that patience is indeed a virtue. I had an 11 week ultrasound scheduled and my hubby and I woke up at the crack of dawn (ok well it felt like dawn but probably a little later) to get to the Doctor's office at 9 AM. We got there all bright eyed and bushy tailed to find out that our ultrasound tech was on vacation!! And the secretary swore up and down that they called our house and my cell phone to cancel. Hmm.. well needless to say there were no voicemails on my cell phone nor any on the answering machine.

We were so disappointed! I was especially disappointed since I haven't seen my little bean since week 7, and I'm such a worry wart! I had a serious countdown going since week 7 to be prepared for this ultrasound and it never happened. So we rescheduled for Friday and this time I'm going to be calling everyone and their mother to make sure that the tech will be there as scheduled! hmph!

Other than that, I've been doing pretty well. The morning sickness ebbs and flows. I had a great week 9, then week 10 the sickness began again, then along came some fierce heartburn, ugh! Now at week 11, the morning sickness seems to have subsided again, and the heartburn is less, but now I'm constantly in the bathroom for potty breaks! All throughout the night, 10 times a day, what the! Ah the wonderful world of pregnancy LOL But of course it's all worth it for the sake of a growing baby.

I'll have to blog again on Friday with the results! Can't wait!
