14 weeks

Wow, it's been so long since I updated. Life has been crazy!

We had our NT at 12 weeks. The doctor thinks that the baby's left foot is clubbed. As far as he can tell the right foot is normal. That combined with a thick nuchal fold measurement and elevated bloodwork, give the baby 3 markers for Down syndrome. We are going for another ultrasound to take a second look at the foot and more bloodwork on Nov 5.

M and I both firmly believe that God has a wonderful life planned for this baby, and that He won't give us, as parents, anything we can't handle. Thoughts and prayers appreciated!
How far along? 14w5d

Total weight gain: Grand total so far is +2. It is hard to believe because my bump is definitely forming. I've even had several strangers comment.

How big is baby? The size of a lemon

Maternity clothes: 95% of what I wear is maternity. This weekend I have to pull regular clothes out of the closet to make more room for maternity clothes.

Stretch Marks: Nothing new

Sleep: So-so. Some nights I sleep like a rock, some night I have trouble falling asleep then wake up a lot.

Movement: YES! I've been feeling flutters on and off since 11w6d! It only last for a minute or two, and it isn't everyday, but I certain now that it is the baby saying HI!

Food cravings: Not really. I am finally getting to eat a little more normally.

Food aversions: Meats

Symptoms: M/s is easing up. Still having a lot of nausea, but only vomiting every other day or so. I've also been having bad headaches, which stinks because Tylenol is worthless.

Belly button: In

What I most looking forward to: We go for our genetic scan and squential screening on Nov 5. I just want to hear that my baby is ok!

Weekly wisdom: God's plan is the best plan!

Weekly joy: Cuddle time with Felicity. She really only cuddles if the TV is on, so sometimes I let her watch Dora or a little bit of a Disney movie, so I can trick her into sitting on my lap.
