11 weeks!

It seems like my stomach is already growing. Its weird how pregnancy effects your personality, emotions, and your physcial appearance. Its really quite a lot to take in all at once. I know have 30 more weeks to go. We told M's parents today they are really happy, this will be the first grandchild on his side of the family. I am starting to get over the morning sickness which is fine by me! I am really rather tired of running to the toilet all day (the person that first called it morning sickness should be shot its all-day sickness people). My next doctor appointment is October 11th. I have been on a KFC kick, not exactly a craving because I could live without it if I had to.

9 weeks!

First Doctor Appt 9 Weeks 1 Day

This morning I went to the doctor, M joined me. They first took me into the room to do a sonogram, I will post those as soon as M gets back home because he has to hook up the printer... Anyways, as soon as they get to where the baby is the baby is just moving around like no other, its really pretty amusing. Its like our little baby is a dancing machine haha! M gave the baby the name, little gummy bear hahah! Today the baby measure 24 mm which M says is about an inch long (I am horrible at math so I have no choice but to believe him). That is just totally amazing to me that you can see something that small.

Then we talked to the dr. her name will now be Dr. Iamtooskinny, she is really nice! She asked me if I had any questions which I didn't since I have been reading up the wazoo! She warned me about toxioplasmosis yes I know not to change the litter box, who said I did that even before I got pregnant? (Another not, after years of being a vet tech according to Dr. Google I am immune to it but I am not going to take the chance)

Anyways I will post the pictures sometime tonight for everyone to see! M is getting more excited now that he "can see there really is something in there" I thought that was really cute. Oh yeah and the babies heartrate is 172 which they said is really good, so yeah anyways, more later! I will post sonogram pictures for you.

Also one more thing my due date has been changed to April 18th right now... Okay yeah I think I am done for now haha!

 I am still trying to convince myself that yes I am pregnant and no this isn't some fantastic dream. I read that in these 8 weeks the baby already has eyelids, arm buds, and leg buds. Its amazing how fast they grow! My first OB/GYN appointment is tomorrow, I am pretty excited about it. I just really want to hear his/her heartbeat so I know that yes there really is something inside me growing!
 I have started to discuss baby names I know its early but hey, I am a first time mom! Can't decide on a girl name whatsoever so watch we will probably have a little girl and she will have no name. 
I know I am only 8 weeks pregnant but two of things MIGHT be going on (a) I am going crazy or (b) I am already gaining weight and my belly is already starting to show a little bit

**Update** I found out its (B) that yes I am starting to gain some weight and get a belly. I have gained 2 lbs. 3 oz. to be exact.**
