Nine Weeks

Baby M had its first photo shoot on Thursday, and did great!  The doctor said everything looks perfect.  Baby M is measuring in at almost an inch, which is about the size of a grape.  It also has a very strong heartbeat of 175 bpm.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: Nine Weeks
Size of baby: Baby M is the size of a grape
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Lost four pounds
Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing my normal clothes but they are getting tight.  I have a feeling I'm going to live in tunics and leggings this pregnancy!
Gender: We are not going to find out!  I am so excited about this!
Movement: I haven't felt any movement yet, but hopefully, since this is number three, I will feel something before 22 weeks!
Sleep: I'm so, so, so tired.  All the time.  I love that I am working half days, because it allows me to have a nap everyday!
What I miss: Being able to eat!
Cravings: Nothing crazy, yet.  Every once in a while, something hits me (like chicken fried steak) and I have to have it right then, but other than that, nothing yet.
Aversions: Again, nothing really, yet.  At least not anything specific.
Symptoms: I am sicker with this little one than I was with Gannon and Austyn combined.  Times five.  I am pretty much eating toast, biscuits, and crackers.  Every now and then, Baby M will allow cheese on my crackers, and pizza sits well, on occasion.  I am EXHAUSTED!  I am just ready for this trimester to be over so I can enjoy this pregnancy as much as I did the other two.

So, as most of you know, although we are late in the game, we are now a cloth diapering family.  I am trying to start a stash for the new baby, so I was browsing around the Internet for deals.  Well, I found one.  Thirsties Modern Cloth Diapers is doing a giveaway called Thirsties Thursday giveaway.  By blogging about this contest, I am entered to win two free Thirsties diapers!  Yay!  It's small, but it's a start....

So, wish me luck!

Three Years Ago...

Three years ago on this day...

...I was able to assist God with a beautiful miracle.

Three years ago on this day, my princess entered the world. 

My reaction:  She is absolutely perfect!
Daddy's reaction:  Man!  That girl's got some lungs!

Two years ago on this day.....

....we celebrated a whole year with the sweetest princess I could ever imagine.

One year ago on this day, in a pink cast...

...my baby blew out two candles on her birthday cake.


...she is three.  These have been three of the greatest years I could have ever imagined.  I am beyond blessed to have this little angel in my life.

Mommy loves you, Austyn-Baby!!
