We officially have the first craving....pancakes with strawberries. Watching Ugly Betty last night and BAM, they had pancakes. I couldn't stop wanting them. We went to Los Tres for dinner but I still wanted pancakes. My sweet husband got up early this morning and took me to Brigs for pancakes before he went to work...what a sweetie.

On another note, I am feeling the baby a little. Every once in awhile, I feel the same little twinge on one side or the other and it will poke like 3-4 times and quit. It ain't gas, so I am claiming is about that time anyway. ALSO I have a little bit of a bump! My baby pooch and my fat have merged into a little bump...sooooo I am taking Sarah today to shop for some stretchy pants! Whoo hooo.

There is an invasion in my uterus. Do you SEE the creepy alien eyes? Weird. But I am happy to be able to see Thumper! We had our monthly appointment yesterday and everything went swimmingly. The doc tried to find the heartbeat with his doppler but couldn't. I think he was a little more paniced that I was. I knew it was there because I just heard it on Saturday night. I figured Thumper was just turned funny. So since he couldn't hear it, we got a suprise ultrasound. I rewarded the baby with a tangerine dum dum for the aversion!

The other good news is my NT scan results! Apparently someone was supposed to call me but didn't . Dr. S was not happy...I figure someone will get torn a new one. I figured they were waiting until the appointment and if it was bad, they would have called. Well he pulled them up to give me the results and he said, and I quote, "I think these are the best results I have ever". Now since we are so young and healthy, our risks are low right off the bat. So he said for a ball park, I would have a 1 in 900 risk for down syndrome and 1 in 1500 for neuro defects. Well after my results from the NT, the baby is a 1 in 17,800 for downs and 1 in 33,000 for the others! Holy moly! As my mother in law put it, "he/she is already an overachiever like mom and dad". That was great news and THEN when he was trying to find the heartbeat, he was making me lay different ways and put up my knees and then said my stomach muscles were so tight, it was hard to do much :)! HA and I was giving myself a hard time for skipping pilates last week.

Anyway...good days. My cold is going away but I think I am getting hormonal headaches about everyday. Doc said it was normal...just sucks. But I can live with it..just might have to lie down in my office for a few minutes in the afternoon to get it to go away. Whoo hoo.

Feelin Poopy

So I have a sucks. Started on Sunday with a crazy sinus headache, then a scratchy throat, then a sore throat, and now just plain old runny nose and eyes. I feel like crap...and on top of that, I can't take shit. Lovely. I am resorting to hot tea, breathe right strips, and vapors in the shower. Tonight is going to be a horrible night's sleep. Ugh.....I hope I feel better soon..

Was that gas...or something else?

Sooooo today I was sitting at my desk and I got this dull pain on one side of my abdomen. Nothing to worry me but it was just weird. I tried moving around a little to see if it was my jeans buckling or maybe I had been sitting too long. Nothing helped. Once I got up to leave, I could feel it migrating across my whole tummy. At first I thought maybe constipation? but determined no. Then I thought it felt like gas but no actual gas was happening. THEN I remembered Jen was telling me the other day that she felt her little one at around 14 weeks and it felt like gas bubbles. I don't know if I was feeling bubbles per se but I definitely felt something for about 30 minutes and then it was gone. So yay! it wasn't something wrong I don't think...and maybe Thumper is making a small reach out? I dunno...maybe I am just wishful thinking.

On another side note, a girl at work is bringing me her doppler! I am pretty excited!

Happy 13 weeks Thumper!
