Pregnancy Update

I had another prenatal appointment a few weeks ago, and all went well. Forgive me if I am repeating information you have already read, but I don't feel like going back and reading through all my old posts to find out, so just re-read it and forgive my pregnancy brain. ;)

We got another ultrasound and baby is BIG! I was 8 weeks and a few days at the time, so a little further than I thought, which is always good and the official final due date is June 5, 2013. The baby was so much bigger than the other ultrasound at 6 weeks! Even my midwife said it looked BIG! In this picture if you look closely, you can see it's teeny tiny little eyes!

It's really starting to look like a real baby now, I can only imagine how much more bigger it has gotten by now at 10 weeks!

I am feeling pretty good. Still tired off and on, but not feeling the need to nap every day like I was for the longest time early on in the pregnancy, and not feeling as sick. I still feel a little queasy if I get too hungry and don't eat right away, or if I get too tired but it's not as bad as it used to be in the very beginning. 

My belly is DEFINITELY getting bigger! I popped out at around 7 or 8 weeks with Mason, and I feel like I am even bigger at 10 weeks with this baby! This was at 9 weeks:

And this was the other day, at 10 weeks:

Quite a big difference in just a week! It's very exciting though to see the belly growing and I just can't wait to get even bigger, feel the baby move, and experience all of the fun pregnancy stuff that comes later. I have to say though, I am starting to feel like I could be done after this baby. We had decided on 4 to begin with, but the thought of being done at 4 always made me a little sad because I just LOVE having babies! But I am slowly starting to feel like this could be it, and I could be fine with it. I think the thought of being pregnant again with other little ones to take care of, is just not very appealing because it's so much more difficult to be sick or rest with other little ones running around and being crazy. We'll see how I feel later though, but if there was any more babies, it wouldn't be for another 5 or 10 years down the road. ;)
