Today marks the beginning of my 12th week! It's a milestone, and I'm very happy, because that means that hopefully I will get my energy back soon, and not feel so sick anymore. Last week was pretty rough for me, but I feel much better today.
I had my 12 week appointment today, and everything is A-OK. Even got to hear the heart beat for the first time! Grant was able to be there, too, so I was happy for that. He thought about videotaping the event as proof to myself that I actually am pregnant. Because about every other day or so, I tell him that I don't really think I'm pregnant, and that this is all just a dream, and I'll eventually wake up and be really disappointed that I'm not actually pregnant. Well, after hearing the heartbeat today, it's pretty hard for me to deny it anymore.
When I was in the exam room today, I was looking at a growth chart for both the mom and the baby. It's so hard to imagine that my baby, which is about the size of a lime right now, will get so "big" before he/she is actually born! What an incredible thing this all is!!
