C'est la vie 1st Trimester

How far along? 13 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: +2lbs

Maternity clothes? Not really

Stretch marks? Same.

Sleep: Getting better, but I'm still pretty tired.

Best moment this week: Hearing the baby's HR on the Doppler

Movement: I don't think so, but I have felt a couple of pops pretty low.

Food cravings: fruit, salad

Gender: Unknown

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Having a semi-flat belly

What I am looking forward to: feeling like myself soon

This past week I had my monthly check up at the OB. I had an early appointment, but there was some sort of emergency in the office, so I waited an hour to go back. She checked my weight, and by their scales I'm up 3lbs, but since I check my weight on the same scale, I'm going by my 2lb gain. She got the Doppler out and it took about 5 seconds to find. It was really low, but it was there. 152 bpm. Music to my ears. :) Everything else is going very well. She did mention that my blood work up didn't include an HIV test. I didn't decline it, but I guess there was some sort of mix up on the script. So, I have to go get that done. Next appointment is August 11th, and we'll be able to schedule the Level II ultrasound!

This past weekend we went up to my dad's camp. Its about an hour and 45 minutes away. Its a drive, but its really nice up there. It's right on the Ohio river. My dad and his girlfriend have boats, so we took Olivia on her 1st boat ride. She looked so cute in her little life jacket.


Russ wanted to take her out on the tube. I was a little hesitant, because I'm a mummy. She's just so little to me, but I know she was in good hands. She seemed to be really enjoying it because she looked like she was falling asleep.


That was about 1 minute before a big quake came from behind and knocked them off. It was a very scary moment for me. Russ had her the entire time though and her head never went underwater. Guess that's the reason for life vests. But, it scared her and she was screaming. My dad pulled her back on the boat and I wrapped her up in a towel. After about a minute, she stopped crying and was back to walking around and enjoying the boat ride. It's going to be a LONG time before I let her on a tube again. Talk about having a mini heart attack.


She liked "driving" the boat. :)

That was our week. I'm glad to be on the way out of the 1st trimester. I'm hoping that I'll be feeling more like myself soon. The morning sickness isn't bad anymore. I still get sick sometimes at the end of the day or if I don't eat for a long time. I'm still pretty tired. I require a nap when Olivia goes down at noon. So I feel like I don't get anything done anymore. Those 2 hours I usually clean and get things done around here. Oh well, soon enough. :)

Great news that you've made it past the first trimester and only a couple pounds up. Great work Amy!

Are you going to find out the gender of your baby?

I really can't wait to find out what our new bundle of joy will be.

Love the pics of the water.. ah...
