12w1d - Guess what...

K and I get to see the baby again in 3 days!!! I can't wait. I am so excited to see the little bean - complete with limbs this time. Last time was exciting, but there was only a head and tail...not too much to ooh and aah over. This time he/she will have arms, legs, fingers, and toes! And a little face!

Today I am 12 weeks, 1 day and feel like puking all day long. It really is a joyous time. I have not actually gotten sick, however, so I am still calling myself lucky. It does suck to feel nauseous all day but I can deal with it. And it is so worth it.

I have still been able to find the bean on the doppler. The heartrate is slowing down just like it is supposed to. Tonight I listened and he/she was chugging away at 160 bpm. I still think baby is a boy and my mom thinks baby is a girl. K and I did decide to find out the sex, so that appointment will be sometime towards the end of February I think. I can't wait!

Baby is the size of a plum this week! 2 1/2 inches long, but only weighs 1/2 ounce. He/she has almost all organ systems formed and functioning and we are at the point that risks from environmental factors are substantially decreased. Whew!

I can't believe I am 3 months pregnant. I remember looking at tickers for other girls that were 12 weeks and feeling like I would never get there. And here I am! I still worry about something going wrong, but not quite as much. I am so thankful for everything that I have been able to experience so far and CAN'T WAIT to see this little one on Wednesday! I can't imagine a better way to spend my New Year's Eve!

Hooray for seeing the baby, Bee! I can't wait to see you on second tri soon! And I'm sorry to say you're not feeling well. Having recently come down with m/s it stinks! Anyway, take it easy. We'll be seeing the blueberry on Friday. Can't wait!
