11 Weeks...and what I've learned

Might as well call it 12 weeks, since tomorrow/Saturday marks 12 weeks lol.  (I have 2 pregnancy apps on my phone, because I like the different info on both)

11 Weeks
Monday we had another appointment to check on Baby

Blood pressure was good

They did blood work, I'm waiting on no phone call on that one (hopefully, because no call means all is good and I don't need to add anything)

We have to decide on the Quad Screen for next appointment, which screens for Trisomy 18 Down Syndrome Spina Bifida and one more that I can not remember for the life of me
The only problem with this test is, the results are often false positives...
The test can also be run during the anatomy ultrasound, with more accurate results.  So, I think we'll skip the quad screen.

April (probably around J's birthday!) will be the anatomy ultrasound!

I'm starting to get a baby belly
With that, my clothes are too small and my biggest pair of jeans are starting to get uncomfortable.  I guess that means I need to go maternity shopping with our tax return!
I'm looking at Old Navy, but not thrilled with much of their selection
I have seen some stuff at Target I liked, so I'll be hitting them up too!!

We took belly pics at 4 and 7 weeks, I really need to get a 12 week pic and start taking them weekly from then!  I am starting to see a bit of growth and think it will be fun to watch.  
Though my mom and grandmother will FREAK when they see my belly on the internet! lol

I stay hungry.
I don't mean kinda hunry
Last night I ate a whopper, still hungry
ate some butter noodles,
I'm going to eat us out of house and home over the next 7 months!

Any maternity clothing advice?

I'm guest blogging for Allie soon, and I'm drawing a blank!!  But I'm excited to be doing my first ever guest post, and that she likes me enough to let me post!!  LOL!!

  1. Thrift stores, other friends who can loan, and consignments sales and shops - are three of the best places to find maternity clothes and not have to pay the exorbitant prices of brand new :)
