Introducing Baby W

Posted by Picasa

I had my first ultrasound today and it went very well. Drinking 32 ounces of water and not being able to go to the bathroom until after the ultrasound was over was the only bad part of the day. Andrew and I got to see the heart beat, which was going at a strong 162 beats per minute. The tech said I am only 9 weeks and 1 day pregnant compared to 9 weeks and 4 days the calculations say. So I will be having the baby sometime between November 28th to December 1st if all goes as plans. So without farther is Baby W.

Maternity Bridesmaid Dress

So I thought I would put in a picture of my dress I will be wearing when I'm 7 months pregnant for my best friends wedding this October. It is a Belsoie dress, but just imagine that I will have a big belly. The dresses will be in berry, and one of the other bridesmaids picked this dress as well, minus the maternity part. Once the dress gets in I will post a picture of me in it.

6 Weeks!

I am 6 weeks, well almost 7 weeks, pregnant now. Things are moving a long nicely right now. I will have to get Andrew to take a picture of my pregnancy bloat belly and post them on here. My biggest problem right now is that I have had a cold for over two weeks that I just can't get rid of. I finished my antibiotics and am still sick. I can't take most medicines that I normally would to get the cold to finish up. But I will suffer to make sure I have a healthy baby in November. I got the list below from one of the great girls on the knot...err the nest. Thanks Brit!

Total weight gain/loss: maybe a pound...i haven't weighted myself since 3/31
Maternity clothes? Bella Band is working for now.
Stretch marks? some
Sleep: need more, i'm taking naps most days.
Best moment this week: Andrew took me our favorite deli for my turkey hoagie with honey mustard! it was great!
Movement: none yet
Food cravings: sandwiches with honey mustard
Food aversions: seafood...the smell of it makes me want to vomit.
Gender: we are calling the baby a boy
Labor Signs: none
Belly Button in or out? in
