How far along: 13 Weeks
Baby is the size of: a peach
Total weight gain: between 1 and 2 pounds.... idk
Name: pretty sure we have a name for boy or girl.... not quite ready to stop searching for baby names yet.
Gender: we find out on April 15th.  we will keep you posted.  I had a dream that it was a boy and the more I "want" it to be a girl the more I feel it will be a boy
Best moment this week: Ultrasound!!  I went alone and although I really wanted Anthony to be there... it turned out to be a sweet moment for mommy and baby.  To sit there in the silence and look at my little miracle you feel Heavenly Father's love for you so strongly.  I cried tears of joy.
Food cravings:  most everything is yummy.  the weather has been really nice and warm... I have been wanting to bbq for quite a while now.  I am dying to eat a bacon cheese burger and strawberry lemonade. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: not really.
Sleep: still need and get plenty... but I do have more energy throughout the day
Pregnancy symptoms: just the typical, always hungry, always have to pee
Miss anything: not at all.  I am loving every minute of pregnancy!
Maternity clothes: yes!  my regular jeans no longer fit comfortably so I have been wearing maternity pants.  It is strange to be in between... it takes some work to keep my maternity pants up because my little bump isn't big enough to hold them up yet.
Belly button in or out: in
Stretch marks: not yet
Movement: only that I have seen on the ultrasound... now i do pay close attention to my tummy and am hoping to feel movement soon
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy... most of the time I am overjoyed! Everything smells better, tastes yummier, and just is better.  Life is so good right now!
Baby gear purchases: not yet.  we are moving into a 2 bedroom apartment and painted the nursery soft mint.
Wedding rings on or off: on
Early labor signs: nope
Daddy moment: educational specialist at the dr. was filling me in on how the baby can hear already... and i told her I know Daddy talks to baby all the time!  I swear baby knows when daddy is around.  when he talks to munchkin, rubs my tummy, ect.  I feel so calm and at peace.  I love my husband so much and he is going to be the best daddy ever!!!
Most recent doctor's appointment: ultrasound pics! you can find them on facebook.
Looking forward to: finding out gender, feeling movement, a bigger more obvious bump, MOVING IN TO OUR NEW PLACE!!!

sorry I skipped week 12...

11 Weeks

How far along: 11 Weeks
Baby is the size of: a lime!  getting bigger!
Total weight gain: I paid attention to my weight at my last appointment so now I can keep track better of how much I gain.  I think I have gained 3 pounds since the very beginning.  Let's just say I haven't lost my appetite and I am always hungry
Name: we pretty much have it narrowed down to 1 boy and 1 girl name
Gender: don't know yet
Best moment this week: deciding to move into this awesome 2 bedroom apartment and be next door neighbors with our best friends.  Oh... the parties we will have.
Food cravings: not really... we had  turkey dinner and that was yummy... I can only eat a little of the more savory foods at a time.
Anything making you queasy or sick: taking my prenatal vitamin before I ate any breakfast one morning was not a good idea... I guess this was my way of experiencing morning sickness
Sleep: still get tired if I overdo it... now I can either take a nap and go to bed a little later or skip the nap and go to bed way early
Pregnancy symptoms: mostly, I am feeling great!  My hips hurt sometimes though, and I have to pee all the time
Miss anything: energy... ability to use certain cleaning products and lift heavy things.  this move is going to be hard for me to not help with everything
Maternity clothes: They are so comfy they are all I wear now... and yoga pants.  I can still fit in my normal jeans but they are so uncomfortable I choose not to wear them
Belly button in or out: in
Stretch marks: not yet
Movement: can't feel anything yet. excited for the day when I can
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Baby gear purchases: none yet.. but people keep giving us free stuff and we love it!  We did get the munchkin his/her own room!
Wedding rings on or off: on
Early labor signs: none
Daddy moment: Daddy didn't want me to tell him when the heartbeat was on the recording.. he wanted to listen and hear it himself... Daddy agreed to move into our new place.  He was away for 2 days and 1 night... not fun. Now that I am pregers I miss him a ton when he is gone... almost like I am missing a part of myself.
Most recent doctor's appointment: my little sister came with me because Hubby couldn't and she got to hear the baby's heartbeat with me for the first time.  We recorded it so Anthony could hear too.  Wish we could've listened longer so now I just listen to the recording over and over.
Looking forward to: fixing up the new apartment and moving in later this month!  and the next ultra sound in 2 weeks.  I need an updated picture
