Merry Christmas!

For Father’s day we didn’t do a ton. We went to Dave’s grandparents' house for lunch/dinner. That was fun.
We sent out cards to our family and a few friends though. Here’s what they looked like (some people got a different card):

Yup! That’s right, I’m going to push a human out of me this Christmas! Woohoo! I’m due Christmas Day! (Hoping it’s early or late)
Here’s the obligatory picture of the positive test:

And of course, here’s the obligatory ultrasound picture (6 weeks):

I had an ultrasound in the early weeks to see how far along I was because they couldn’t tell from my cycle lengths (irregular and too long).

In the fashion of wonderful Carrie’s blog, which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE reading:
How far along: 14 weeks (on Sunday, June, 27th)
Total weight gain/loss: - 7 lbs (my Dr. isn’t happy with me, but I had that darn flu! She told me to gain weight from now on – haven’t gained any since the appointment, slap my wrist.)
Maternity clothes: not yet, don’t even own any yet.
Stretch marks: not yet (crossing my fingers for none…yeah right)
Sleep: I have strange dreams, but that’s pretty usual for me. I try to sleep on my sides, but I always wake up on my back – any tips for me?
Best moment this week: I’m starting to get a baby-bump. I ate a big Mexican food meal on Saturday and my tummy was SUPER big (yes, I know it’s going to get bigger)
Movement: nothing yet
Food cravings: FRUIT, FRUIT, and FRUIT!, Cheesy Nachos from Taco Bell
Aversions: red meat (beef, esp. ground/processed), greasy foods
Gender: ? (6 more weeks) My mom said she could go days without showering when she had girls, and got super greasy with boys. Chelsea was the same way with Penny. So far I haven’t really been either, so I guess we’ll see.
What I miss: energy
Milestones: 2nd trimester!
Extra: I’m starting to get hungry again this week! I’m constantly hungry! I think I may be getting some of my energy back this week. YAY!
Past info: I was pretty nauseous week 5 (when we were at Bear Lake), but since then I’ve mostly just been super tired. I could sleep all day and all night and still need more sleep. I haven’t thrown up at all. (Hoping all my pregnancies are like this!)
Turns out I tested positive on week 3! I thought I might be pregnant because I bawled when Dave played a prank on me and my cheeks were flushed most of the time. Oh, and there was the week late on my period thing, but that wasn’t really abnormal.
I went to see the F.N.P. when I tested positive, she ordered the ultrasound, which I did the next week (2 weeks later?), then I had an appointment with the Dr. on June 18th to hear the heartbeat. I also got to see/hear the heartbeat at week 6 at my ultrasound. That was fun.

For me, "super greasy" isn't very greasy! lol My face was clearer than usual with my girls, more acne than usual with my boys.

Clare said...

Yay for you & Dave. I wouldn't worry about sleeping on your side yet anyway. That's not really an issue until you have enough belly for it to be "heavy" on your artery or whatever. For me, I would end up on my back often during the night but would just roll over when I woke up.

i broke out the minute i got pregnant. i gained 1 pound a week from week one and you should sleep on your back as much as you like because your body won't let you when you're too big and then you'll miss it. congrats again.

Carrie said...
