12 weeks....2 days late

Yesterday was our 12w ultrasound. Despite having filled my bladder as much as I could without bursting, apparently nugget was still pretty low. The tech had to press down hard on my pelvis to get a good picture of him/her, but she got what she needed. And I successed at not peeing on the table. Go me! The plus side of it taking a while, I got some extra time seeing nugget up on the screen. Score! Here are the pictures!

As for me, I am feeling good. The nausea is disappearing; there are still some evenings where I feel sick, but the all-day marathons are over! YAY. My energy levels are going up and I am GASP hungry! That's right I not only have an appetite (although not for certain foods I thought I would go gang busters for) but I find that every few hours I am feeling hungry. Who knew? Okay well those of you who have done this before knew. But I am excited about it. The nurse stole all of my blood....okay a few vials and I am hoping I don't ever hear from her. She said they would only call if there was a problem. That was my last dr. appointment with this lady (not that I saw the dr at all). So now it is just me and my Midwife. I still have a couple more ultrasounds, so I will be going somewhere for those. One at 16 weeks and one at 20. Hopefully that will be the last one. Only reason to have more, she said, was if something was worrisome. Anyhoodles, all is well and nugget is still in there.....looking kinda scary I might add.
