Here is my 10 week baby bump, well... where the bump is suppose to be. I guess when you start out skinny you tend to stay skinny for a while. That folks is pretty much bloat ;)
 
 
We made it! I am so happy we made it to 11 weeks! Only 29 more weeks to go till baby is full term! I hope the weeks keep on flying by!

Morning sickness is still strong, I threw up more times in week 10 then during my whole pregnancy. I so far lost 5lbs from it. Headaches started on Christmas eve... in fact that headache that started on Christmas eve is still around.... my dislike for food is still strong. I cannot wait to want to eat again! So far I have been living off of pizza.... mmmmm pizza! My Matthew has been good and been dealing with my emotions and craving. People still tend to touch my belly... which I am not very happy about. My mom said it's because they are blessing me.... can't they bless me without touching me?? I am not a touch person, everyone was shocked I am so touchy with my hubby. Well he is my husband after all. But I don't like hugs or kisses from anyone else besides him. Sadly my family is a mix of Mexicans and Italians... And both are touchy feely type cultures. 

I think our dog knows I am pregnant, Squirrel seems to become rather attached to us lately and won't let us out of her sight. The kittens seem to still be clueless. 

The nighmares seems to come often, I think I have a nightmare everyday day if not every other day. I wish they would stop. They are from losing my Matthew or pets to losing our baby. Then some just plain weird dreams.

Well, I have been enjoying my days off from college life, I think I have to go back in the 17 of Jan. Last semester before baby is here! Which is crazy I think! :) 

Going to hang with my girl friends today, they want to treat me to lunch, just hope the baby is happy today and likes the food.... so I don't have to see it again!

About 1 month, 2 weeks and 3 days till we get to see 
 
 
Your Baby Week 11Your baby is growing incredibly rapidly right now. She is approximately 1.75 to 2.4 inches (4.4 to 6cm) when measured from crown to rump. She will double her length in the next three weeks. Your growing baby weighs about 0.3 ounces (8g).

The neck is developing and the chin lifts up from the chest. Fingernails are also present. While your baby's sex was already determined at the time of fertilization, male or female genitalia are now visible. Essential organs are formed and most have begun to function. The blood vessels in the placenta are increasing in number to meet your baby's increasing nutritional needs. Her ears are moving towards the sides of her head, away from the neck. Your baby's head is still not in proportion with her body. Your baby's head accounts for about half of her body length.

Your Baby This Coming Week:

The crown-to-rump length of your baby is about 1.25 to 1.68 inches (between 3.1 and 4.2cm). He weighs about 0.18 ounces (5g).

The placenta is now producing progesterone which helps to make nutrients for your developing baby.

Your baby has passed the stage when he is most susceptible to damage. By the end of this week, the danger zone for congenital abnormalities has passed.

The plan for your baby's body has been completely laid down by now. Further growth and cell division will build on this plan.

Taste and tooth buds have appeared.

Your baby has recently developed fingers and toes which are now well-formed. Ankles, wrists and the inner ear have formed. Your baby's nose is flat and his eyes are far apart. His eyes, ears, mouth and nose are all recognizable. The tail is disappearing.

Your baby is moving around the amniotic sac, and moving his feet and ankles. You still will not be able to feel these movements but you may be able to see them on an ultrasound.

Blood is circulating through the arteries and the vein of the umbilical cord.

The brain of your baby is developing at a phenomenal rate. About one quarter of a million new neurons are produced every single minute at this stage in your pregnancy.

If your baby is a boy, his testes, though they are not even clearly visible, are already producing testosterone.

Your baby is no longer called an embryo, but rather a fetus


 
 
Yesterday was my very first ultrasound. I woke up at 5 in the morning after my lovely husband went to PT. I was so scared and had nightmares about the baby being dead. I finally fell back asleep at 8. Hubby came home from work to pick me up. I was a nervous wreck because I felt fine and not pregnant at all. We waited in the parking lot because we were 40 mins early. After 20 mins of waiting we went upstairs and signed in. 10 mins later we went in and I got my weight checked and blood pressure taken. I so far lost 5 lbs this pregnancy! Then we waited what seemed like forever for the doctor to come in. I was shaking badly and I was starting to scare my husband! We met our doctor and he was super nice! I was glad I chose him. I was excited when he said he was going to do an ultrasound!! After making sure I was healthy and talking about other stuff he got out the ultrasound machine. He looked around for a while and I was getting nervous because he was not saying anything then he flipped on the noise and we heard the baby's heart beat!!! It was so relieving! Matthew was smiling from ear to ear! He got to seem more than I could because I was laying down. Doctor said everything looked good and baby was right on schedule! I was so happy.... seeing the baby made it more real now.  Here is our little bundle of joy!

The head is on the left, the little round things are it's arms and the right part is it's belly. We are nicknaming the baby Bug. 

Our next ultrasound is on Feb. 15 2012. I am very excited for that one because we get to know the gender!!!

We also announced our pregnancy to Matthew's sisters, they did not know we are pregnant or we were trying, and to our friends on Facebook. Everyone was shocked and very excited for us! We are so happy we have a lot of supportive friends! 
 
 
And the waiting is so hard!! I am so nervous about it, I am just praying for a heat beat and a healthy baby. I keep on thinking that I totally feel normal then m/s hits me. Matthew and I are on a marriage retreat and I get car sick going on the elevator... I think my baby bump is coming in early. I have a little tummy now... I shall post a picture late. I think it's a baby bump and not fat because I keep on losing weight with this kido with the lost of appetite and the m/s. I get nervous when I wear a "fitted" shirt because it looks more like I am getting fat than I am pregnant. Another thing I am nervous about is being a mom at a young age, I know I can handle the baby and life but worried how people will react to it. I know a couple of people asked me, when they knew I was married a 18, if I got married because I "had" to or because he got me pregnant. I was shocked by their questions... I love my husband and we got married because we were ready and no, it would be impossible for me to have been pregnant seeing as we waiting till after marriage to get more "personal". Anyways.....random thoughts..... I am off for a month from school which I am going to enjoy every moment of it! Hopefully when I go back the m/s will be gone and I will feel better.  We need to get back to packing up, last day at this nice hotel!! Will upload some pictures of the water that is here.

So far I am just bloated.....bloated....bloated!!! I am still the same weight if not less.... I have been fighting a cold and morning sickness, so sorry I look bad (plus no makeup) but felt I needed to at least take a picture of the baby belly.... or the lack of! Ha ha ha. 
 
 
I am so happy we made it to 8 weeks, though I am still worried about the baby constantly, I am enjoying being pregnant. Morning sickness was bad last night, thought I was going to throw-up many times. Dreams are still very weird. I am wondering when my boobs will get sore because so far they feel fine. Cramping comes and goes, so far no more brown spotting. Our ultrasound is in 13 days! That is less than two weeks! I the two weeks shall go by fast because finals are next week ( they tend to sneak up on me real fast) and then my hubby and I are going on a marriage retreat which will be a nice break from the every day life.... then we come home on Saturday then one Wednesday is our ultrasound! I am so excited and scared at the same time. Still praying everyday that this baby will be healthy and we have a GREAT appointment. So far doing great in school, which surprises me with my pregnant brain of mine. I keep on forgetting things what is weird for me because I usually have a great memory! The other day I went to feed the kittens and I got their bowl, poured their food then went to our room and sat down with the bowl still in my hand.... goodness. Poor kitties were waiting in the laundry room for their dinner. I also forgot how to get somewhere even though I been there many times! I am also fighting the urge to wanna cry all the time..... for no dang reason. I never cry, even in really sad movies so this is very weird for me. I am so tired all the time and now wanting any 
 
 
Your Baby This Coming Week:

Your baby measures about 0.9 to 1.2 inches (2.2 to 3cm) from crown to rump.

Your baby's arms and legs are longer and her hands are flexed at the wrist. The head is growing more erect and the neck is more developed. On an ultrasound, you may see your baby moving, though you still can not feel this.

The organs are forming. Ears are developed and the eyelids have begun to cover up your baby's eyes. Hands and feet appear as well as small buds which will become fingers and toes. The paddles of your baby's hands have clearly defined finger ridges now, with the tissue between them (which previously made them look webbed) reducing to leave separate fingers.

Your baby's back has started to straighten slightly and the tail is now shrinking. The head still seems large and is curved forwards on her chest. Your baby is starting to look like a tiny person!
