Figured Out How Babies Are Made! --12 Week Update!

Soooooo WE ARE PREGNANT! It's been so hard to keep our good news quiet! But after our 12 week appointment today, we decided to shout it from the rooftops! Our official due date is June 2, 2015!

Here is how it has been going thus far. No, no, no, I'm not going to tell you HOW it happened, I'm sure you all saw the sex ed video in 8th grade! But because I am/was crazy about tracking everything, I found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks 6 days and confirmed it at the doctor. Then my "miscarry paranoia" kicked in and I ended up going to the doctor EVERY FREAKING WEEK for some reason or another until 9 weeks. After the third time of hearing the baby's heartbeat, I got a sense of relief and held off showing up at my doctor's office until today.

We told some friends and family over the past couple weeks, because anyone who knows me knows non-pregnant me would never turn down a glass of wine! Here are some of my favorite responses!

"You realize this makes 4, right?" - No, no I didn't. I missed that part of counting in kindergarten.
"Dude, pull out!" - No comment.
"Well for as much use as your pantry gets, I'm not surprised!" - It really doesn't get used THAT much!
"All your children must sleep through the night." -Yep!
"Are you done after this?" - Maybe, maybe not! Who knows!
"Congratulations!"- This one is my favorite!

Now I'm going to attempt to do a monthly update! I got the questionnaire off of, so no, I did not make up the questions.  So here goes my first one!

How far along? 12 weeks, 1 day!
Total weight gain/loss: up about 2 pounds
Maternity clothes? Oh yeah! Pants are a necessity, and shirts are because my regular shirts make me look like I shopped in the little kids department!
Stretch marks? Nothing new, and the ones I had from Layne have "stretched" back out so I can't seem them! Winning!
Sleep: Great! .......except my 3am need to pee

Best moment this week: Seeing the little squirmy on the ultrasound
Have you told family and friends: Yep! Announced today!
Movement: I swear I felt something, put everyone (including the doctor) says it's too early.
Food cravings: Chinese, ice cream and Panera
Anything making you queasy or sick: Vegetables
Have you started to show yet: Belly is popping out a bit more each day!
Leakage: hahahaha NO
Gender prediction: Gut feeling says girl, but it might just be wishful thinking!
Labor Signs: No no no! 
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody as hell!
Weekly Wisdom: Perk of having a "pre-stretched" stomach from Layne, I don't think I will be in the "Is she pregnant or just fat?" stage as long as before!
Milestones: Announced to the world out pregnancy!
