12 weeks. 2 days.

today marks 12 weeks and 2 days, almost finished with the first trimester!


belly at 12 weeks, 2 days:
the doctor tested for down syndrome by checking the thickness of the back of the baby's neck. he said anything under 3 was good, and our little one was in between 1.1 and 1.3 :)
they took a TON of blood from mamma, to check for my bill of health, and for the rest of the down syndrome tests. the baby was moving quite a bit, which was SO fun to see! when the dr. put the camera on the baby he or she was looking straight into the camera! we let the baby chill for a min before trying to help him move to see if he would move himself, he did a little... but eventually the doctor was pushing on my belly trying to get the baby to move around! the lil one just moved his arms up and down.. almost as if he was dancing!! it was a very cool interacting moment for us :) here is our 12 week photo so you can see how much the baby has grown!! we are looking forward to our next appointment to POSSIBLY find out the sex, if not then for sure in 6 weeks.

Glad you and the baby are doing well! Your belly is super cute!

By the way, I gave Old Navy another try on pants (just ordered the smallest size they offered) and they work! Just FYI if you get desperate, I did. :)
