Goodbye 1st Tri

Well today is 13 weeks!!!!! I am so excited to say we have made it out of the first trimester. Hello 2nd trimester. Things are going really well. This far I have gained a total of 3lbs in 13 weeks, not bad if you ask me. I also got the results from the first trimester screening back yesterday and everything looks great. Little one has a less than 1 in 3000 chance of having Downs Syndrome and a less than 1 in 10000 chance of Trisomy 13 or 18. Those are really good numbers for a 35 year old.
My next appointment is still 2 weeks away. Ugh!!! I hate waiting!!! In the meantime here I am with my 13 week bump.

Let the hoarding begin

Getting ready for this baby has begun. We made our first purchase for the baby. I know most people buy a cute outfit or something like that but we decided to go the practical route, plus we don't know if it's a boy or girl yet. So we decided to buy some wipes. My best friend Katie told me about a deal that was happening on Amazon. It was $7.13 for a case of pampers wipes, if you purchased $25 or more you got free shipping. So for $28.52 I got enough wipes to get me through 2013, since baby won't be here until the end of September. I'm pretty sure this was a pricing error on Amazon's part because if I were to purchase these individually at Walmart I would have spent about $96.Man do I love a good deal!!! Now I just need to make room for all these wipes somewhere.

11 weeks and going strong

Today marks 11 weeks in this pregnancy journey. It was also my first appointment with the OB. I really like her!!!! She went over a ton of stuff as to what we can expect, and all that jazz. It was a little overwhelming. We also got another ultrasound!!! Yeah I got to see my little baby again. Measuring right on track at 11weeks. Baby was sleeping when she started the ultrasound but a good nudge from the OB and baby was like "Hey what are you doing to me?!?!?" After the ultrasound they sent me over to the vampire.... I mean lab where they took 5 vials of blood.
I am still feeling pretty good and so happy that I get to see baby again next week for my 1st trimester screening.
