13 weeks!

How far along? 13 weeks
Total weight gain: -2 lbs (thanks to my gag reflex)
Maternity clothes? I only have a pair of maternity leggings and a shirt but it seems I need to invest in some pants... I can't button a single pair of my regular ones :(
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: it's a hit or miss. I am so completely exhausted that I've been going to bed around 8:30 but I am waking up at least twice in the middle of the night to use the bathroom... I can only imagine this will get worse!
Best moment this week: That I felt great on Sunday and got all my Christmas shopping done in one day... which was a huge accomplishment if you knew how sick I have been.
Miss Anything? Yes, my appetite! Where did it go? Who knew you could be so incredibly hungry but can't think of a single thing that sounds good to eat. Story of my life right now.
Movement: Not yet, but I am excited for when it happens!
Food cravings: I was craving low acid orange juice there for a while but now its nothing.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Yes, everything. Raw meat especially and the thought of chicken...ewwww
Gender: Don't know yet but we will find out at the end of January

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: You name it, I've got it.... nausea, vomiting, heartburn, metal taste in my mouth, tired
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: I am so very happy to have this baby in my belly and experience this with my husband. Everytime he kisses my belly and talks to the baby, my heart melts a little more... but if anyone knows me, they know I am the worst sick person ever so the fact that I feel horrible 90% of the time kind of stinks.
Looking forward to: This being my last week in my first trimester!! They say that is when you start to feel better so I say BRING IT!

Christmas is this weekend so I will get to show off my somewhat baby bump to family I haven't seen in a while.

Check 1, Check 1 2, Is this thing on?

Shew. It's been a while. A long while. And while I realize that and am so sorry, I must say that I couldn't really help it. You see, I have this condition. It's nothing serious but it is called PREGNANCY and it is kind of blowing my mind right now!
My husband and I are beyond excited to be sharing the news with everyone now... it was a toughie to keep it a secret from everyone up until this point. And lets be honest, nothing is official until it's Facebook official and we got that out of the way last night, so I feel pretty sure in letting it out to you guys too.
Honestly, it's a relief because now I can come to my little space and talk about it all I want... and by talking I really mean whining about how terrible I feel and how this "all day sickness" is literally kicking my bootay.
We went for our 11 week ultrasound yesterday and got to see the little one. It was so incredible that I couldn't stop smiling because who knew that even though your baby is ONLY 4 cm, he or she still looks like a baby. I mean, it was an active little booger because it looked like it was doing karate in there and moving all around. Even our ultrasound tech was laughing about it, which in turn made me get the giggles and then we would lose the picture... wah wah. I had to hold it in which then seemed like the church giggles. You know, the ones where you are are sitting by your best friend who is bored to tears and does something incredibly inappropriate that makes you laugh and the more you try NOT to laugh for fear of eternal damnation, the more you actually do. Yeah, that.

So anyway, internet world, watch out because in June 2012 we are adding another Lesher to the world and we couldn't be happier about it!
