I feel like I haven't been as tired this past week. I still love to rest and had a hard time getting myself off the couch this weekend to be productive, but I don't feel like I'm falling asleep sitting up anymore. I thought I was over getting sick, but this morning reminded me that it might just come and go for awhile longer. I am not wearing maternity clothes specifically yet, but I can assure you I will be VERY soon. Most of my shirts still fit around but they're getting rather short as they stretch over the belly. I wear the belly band every single day (my pants haven't buttoned since week 6 I think) but it's starting to get more and more uncomfortable.
My cravings have shifted a bit this week. I still love salty, but I've actually been wanting more sweets. Saturday this past weekend I wanted sugar cookies in a BAD way. My sis made me some and I could have eaten the whole package. We made brownies for company and I've been munching on those this week.
We had our monthly appointment last Thursday and got to hear the little beans heart beat. It was pretty cool. Hubs recorded the audio on his phone. The Doppler didn't say how many beats per minute it was, but I counted it when we got home and it was low to mid 170's. I'm still deciding what I think we're having. I was hoping to find out before New Years, but it's going to be after the First of the Year before we can get in to get the Ultra Sound scheduled. I am starting to think girl based on Heart Rate and cravings (wives tales) but I still really don't have a mothers intuition either way. The gender poll over on the right of the blog is tied up again so if you haven't yet voted, take a guess. Girl was leading for a long time... I guess nobody is really sure. :)
We are so thankful for each step of the way. I promise I haven't forgotten to blog about how we told everyone, that's coming this week. I finally got all the pictures together. They are all cell phone shots since we didn't want anyone to suspect we were announcing something by having the camera out.
