Well, I made it to 13 weeks! It felt like it took forever to get here! lol Baby is now almost 3 inches long, almost an ounce, and is the size of a medium shrimp. This is technically the last week of the 1st trimester, because they count the full week completed as going into the 2nd trimester. Blah!
**Forgot to note-this past week I've been on a huge Root Beer kick! Just wanted to remember that. With Rylie it was Big Red. I'm also still 3, maybe 4 lbs up now.
Here's the photo from Saturday. I feel a little silly taking "belly" pics when I'm not really showing a belly yet. That's why I didnt start pictures until 15 weeks the 1st time, but I also like to take photos of the "before" in a way. The belly stickers are for every 4 weeks. It also depends on what I'm wearing if I'm "showing" or not.
So we had an appointment last Wednesday for the ultrasound to check for down syndrome. Everything went great! David couldn't make it, so I bought the dvd & got photos of the ultrasound.
After the birthday party we took Rylie to Mimi's house for Gaga's birthday. David & I could've had a date night but after the "events" earlier in the day we just wanted to go home. I have to brag though how awesome David is. We stopped at Babies R Us to look at a few things & saw this Snoogle pillow (above). I'd been wanting one for weeks but they're so expensive! When David saw it, he immediately picked it up & said he'd get it for me since he knew how much trouble I've been having sleeping lately. I just wanted to cry right there in the store. Not because he bought me an expensive item I wanted, but because he knew it was something I needed & wanted to help make my sleep better for me. And it sure has! Best money ever spent! =)
