12 weeks


Well I decided to finally start documenting belly shots and information about the pregnancy. I think I was too nervous before...I'm trying my best not to be;)




How Far Along? 12 weeks


Total Weight Gained/Loss? down 4 pounds from starting IVF treatments


Maternity Clothes occassional BE band but that's all so far


Sleep was really good but for some reason the last two days my back has been hurting


Best Moment of the Week getting the doppler in the mail!!


Movement- not yet but can't wait!!


Food Craving- crackers with cheese with apple slices on the side


Food aversions- meat and eggs


Morning sickness?- yes!! I only throw-up when I wake up early though.


Gender- not sure!!


Labor Signs- hopefully not for 28 more weeks


Belly Button- in


What I miss- hot, hot baths and a cold beer


What I'm looking forward to- another ultrasound on the 27th, movement, and finding out the gender


Weekly Wisdom- the only person in control is God...trust in him!! (I'm trying;)


Milestones- When my OB said you have a 1% chance of something happening now!!

How exciting!! Hope the doppler is working great! I'm considering renting one, but I think I'm going to wait until after my appointment on Tuesday. Is it pretty easy to find the heartbeat?

Yay!!! I love belly pics...can't believe you're cookin' a little one in there!!! What a miracle!! God is so good!!!!!!!!!!

Melody said...

SO CUTE you are! I asked my dr about baths and he said it was fine :) But, I was skeptical too! Of course, I guess a hot, hot bath would be bad.

Kristy said...

Awww, love the belly shot! I'm so glad you're documenting things now. :)

Melissa said...

Yeah - week 12!! Just wait until you feel movement - AMAZING. I was at work when I felt the first kicks and it made me jump, I was so shocked. Just the most amazing feeling to feel the new life inside of you move. Another awsome thing you get to look foward to is seeing the baby move while watching your belly. I would see a foot push my belly out...it was like alien. Glad you got the doppler - so worth it.

Krisy said...

Look at your cute little belly pics. And kudos to you for losing weight after your IVF cycle....I wish I had been able to do the same.

Just Another Infertile said...

Yay for your first belly pic! You look so cute and thin, just a little bump. :)

I'm glad the doppler is working for you.

I Believe in Miracles said...

Love the documentation!! You're so cute in your belly shot. :o)

With the sleep, I found putting a pillow between my knees has helped immensely with back pain...

~~HUGS~~

Hi Ashley! Congrats! I am so excited for you! You and I were about the same in timing . . . but at my 10 week apt there was no heartbeat . . . I lost my little bean at 8w3d (ironically I had an u/s that very day and everything was perfect!). I can't wait to follow your progress and will keep you in my prayers!
Hugs,
Ali

You look beautiful pregnant! I love the picture! Isn't it exciting that you are 12 weeks? Time flies. I feel like I just read your BFP post. :)

Straubles said...
