Cory and Em with Baby

Here is a picture to give you an idea of what Cory and I will look like with a baby... this picture was taken 9 years ago...I guess we won't look exactly like this. :) Also, my right leg has since grown back.

End of First Trimester

So with the due date that I was given, January 9, 2009, that makes me 12 weeks and 1 day pregnant today. This is the last week of my first trimester. In honor of that, I decided to post all my first trimester belly pictures...

----------5.5 Weeks --------------------9 Weeks-------------------12 Weeks

I have been in Indiana spending time with my family. It has been great...very relaxing. They're spoiling me and fattening me up. Not all of my bigger belly is baby...its also from all the yummy food my family has been cooking me! I'll have to leave soon before I get too big. :)

Look what I did...

I'm reading The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy and in it, it says, "DO NOT CUT YOUR HAIR OFF WHEN YOU ARE PREGNANT!" It's even in big letters like that. Well...I didn't listen. Look at what I did...

I learned a few things during this experience...
#1 The hair on the right side of the head grows faster than the left...from the Left side I donated 12 inches of hair to Locks of Love and from the right, 13 inches.
#2 One side of my hair flips out while the other naturally curls under
#3 Washing short hair you need a lot less shampoo

Good news!!!

I have had a great week! Last Friday I took and passed my clinical competency exam. That has to be the most stressful, horrible thing I have ever done. I hated it, but luckily it is over forever! :) Now I can move on to internship and hopefully graduate someday.
Then today we had our second doctors appointment. The doctor tried to use the doppler to detect the heartbeat, but he couldn't find it, so they wheeled in the ultrasound machine. They did another vaginal ultrasound and we got to see the baby. He/she was sooooo cute! The baby now has arms and legs and was even moving around! He/she looked like a little boxer the way it was moving its arms around. Here are two pictures:Adorable, right?!? :) I cannot believe how much the baby has changed in the 3.5 weeks since our last appointment! The doctor also told us that once the baby is moving around like ours was that the chances of miscarrying drops to below 1%. Now with that news and not having to worry about CCE anymore, I should be relatively stress free for a while! :)

Another Problem

Oh man, Problem #3...I'm out of banana bread. AGH! :) Hehe, gotta make more!
I have my clinical competency exam coming up on Friday and I've been super stressed about it. It's so hard to concentrate on what I have to get done when I have the internet to constantly look up pregnancy and baby things! Once it's over though, I can focus on baby. :) I'm sure it'll be happy once this is over, I'm sure the stress isn't good for him or her!
I have my second doctor's appointment a week from today (June 10th). I'll update after that to let you know how everything is going. Check back then!
