12 weeks.

Well, I've made it through the dreaded first tri-mester. The little bambino in my tummy is 12 weeks along now, growing by the minute and about the size of a lime at the moment. Everyone keeps asking how I'm feeling and I keep saying, "TIRED!" I don't remember being this tired with Ryder... but then again I didn't have Ryder to chase after then either! I have been sick off and on and have already had some cravings - but different than with Ryder. With him I could eat olives out of the jar at 8 in the morning (yuk!) but this time I've wanted sour things - like waking up wanting to bite into a lemon - that sort of thing! I have wanted hamburgers and Shake's chocolate malts but have a only given in a couple times! :) And have actually been craving more fruits and veggies than before. I've sworn I will not gain 65 pounds this time!!! There I said it out loud - you are all my witnesses!

I went to the Dr. last week and the heartbeat was a strong 156 and my blood pressure was down (yay!). And some how I'd managed to lose 5 lbs in the past month. Although I told them I thought their scale was WRONG.

8 more weeks and we'll find out if we continue with blue or switch to pink...

I've been wondering how you've been doing. I'm headed home to FL on Saturday (finally!! yay!!) so maybe we can chat sometime during the long drive. I miss you and hope you start to get somemore energy soon!
