A Hurdle has been crossed!! According to my OB we are now happily in the second trimester. (others will argue that the second trimester doesn't start for another weekish, but I'm going with my doctor on this one!)
Last night we had our second prenatal visit. Steve wasn't able to make it because of work (He is working like a crazy mad person right now!) There really wasn't much to it. Leave a urine sample, get weighed (ugh!) and blood pressure taken. BUT this time they used to Doppler and I was able to hear our little muffin's heartbeat for the 1st time! It was amazing. I recorded it, but for some dumb reason my out of date phone won't let me send it anywhere because the file is too big. Let me tell you though it was awesome! Baby's heartbeat was found almost right away, and was beating away strong and gorgeous in the 150's.
Total Weight Loss/Gain: +4lbs...which I was told is good & normal for being 12.5 weeks
Maternity Clothes: My mom and I went and bought some, and although I haven't worn the slacks, the tops are super cute so I'm wearing one today :)
Stretch marks: None from pregnancy
Sleep: Sleep is still my best friend
Movement: My OB said I'll have a very exciting holiday season with being able to feel the baby for the first time and she said I'll start to have the bump I desire which will look cute for Christmas pictures. Hooray!
Cravings/Aversions: SHAKES!!!!!! I am usually lactose intolerant, and have a big issue with milk, ice cream stuff....but now I'm craving Strawberry Shakes like crazy. And on the plus side they haven't upset my tummy at all (BONUS!)
