{first trimester}

This post is a little overdue. We're so busy with moving, blogging is the last thing I have time for. But I'm glad that I've documented my last pregnancies, and I know I'll regret it if I don't this time around. So here goes...

-my first trimester with baby no. 3-
:: i had my first experience with morning sickness. it was awful, and lasted all day everyday weeks 5-12.
:: got to hear baby's heartbeat at first prenatal check up {11 weeks}
:: had to get a very brief ultrasound at 16 weeks for an ovarian cyst {no big deal}
:: strong instincts that this is a boy. based on my "gut", my leg hair growth theory, the fact that finley says so, and the chinese gender chart. all very scientific, i know.
:: started feeling baby kick around 15 weeks, which was a delightful surprise because i didn't feel either of the girls until 20 weeks.

so that's about all.
at my ultrasound the technician told me we could find out the gender, but our stubborn little baby would not turn over...no matter how i hard i poked at it when the lady wasn't looking.
so we'll have to wait a couple of weeks for the cute profile pic and the big gender reveal!

Taking self portraits is not as easy as it looks, especially when you want your belly to stay sideways!
