Size of Baby: About two inches long (our ultrasound today says 9cm)
Fruit Size (According to my e-mail from BabyCenter.com): A lime
Total Weight Gain: 0 Pounds... I was up 1 pound a couple days this week, but not today when it counts :)
Maternity Clothes: The box is here... tried some on, but still holding out from actually wearing them. I have my old jeans on right now all buttoned up so I can hold out on that belly panel a little longer.
Gender: We have a pretty good idea! At our ultrasound this morning the ultrasound tech seemed really friendly so I asked her if she thought we could take a peek between the legs. She said if it was like a week later she probably could have given us a pretty good idea. She still proceeded to give us a shot from above the belly down in between the legs. I swore I saw both necessary boy parts, but thought I was crazy. The tech didn't say a word, but just left the photo up on the screen for a second. As soon as she left the room Derrik immediately said to me "We're having a boy" which confirmed the thoughts I was already having. This by no means was a confirmation, but we both feel pretty confident in what we saw. At this point I will be SHOCKED if we have a girl!
Food Cravings: Chicken salad... yum!
What I Miss: Feeling good... the sickness has come back full force this week
Labor Signs: (no comment until third trimester or so)
Sleep: Still amazing... just can't seem to get enough of it these days.
How’s Ryder Handling It: We tried to get him excited to see the baby today. I showed him ultrasound pictures of him at 12 weeks a few days ago. He was all excited at the picture on the screen this morning for about two minutes saying "baby" before he asked for his monster trucks :)
What is the same/different as the last time: Just so different. I want so badly to feel better like last time, but it's just not happening.
Symptoms: SICK! UGHHH.... I tried going off the nausea meds and it was a really bad idea. Back on them, and hoping to feel better sometime soon.
Best Moment This Week: Seeing our little one this morning :) It was so exciting seeing the baby move around like crazy, watching the heart flutter, and hearing that everything looked great. They said the baby was measuring at exactly 12 weeks 0 days today.
What I Am Looking Forward To:Finally having our first real doctors appointment next Thursday with our doctor. I hope he's a great doctor, and we think he's a good match for us.

And just for fun...
