Trimester one is rapidly coming to an end. It's crazy how fast it seems to have gone - especially since we've known about the little peanut for so long. I can only hope the last two trimesters go as quickly.
|I spy a bump.|
1. Tuesday we had the first trimester screen. It was pretty awesome to see M² moving around, waving and kicking. The screening went well and the doctor was extremely pleased with the results. We are still waiting on blood work, but the doctor is confident we have nothing to worry about. In the doctor's words, "such a cute baby; a perfect ultrasound model." I mean, how can you walk away from that appointment without a beaming smile? You can't. And you don't.

Directly below the hand is the facial profile.
3. The dreams. Goodness I forgot how vivid and frequent dreams are during pregnancy.
4. I haven't had many constant cravings, except a Waldorf Salad from the Cheesecake Factory. If someone could kindly hook me up with one (or 50) of those I'd be forever indebted.
5. Aside from the salad there haven't been any other constant cravings. BUT, the list of random triggers (and totally unhealthy) cravings is kind of ridiculous:
A) A double double from In and Out Burger. Guys, I haven't had a beef ANYTHING in about 20 years. I wouldn't even know what a legit hamburger tastes like. But, last week I totally wanted one. However, no one wanted to leave the comfort of our home (on a Friday night at 10PM) to get one. Thankfully that craving has since passed.
B) Soup. Specifically broccoli cheddar from Panera. Give me all the soup.
C) Cheese quesadillas from Taco Bell, and potato oles from Taco Johns. I'm pleased to say neither craving was fulfilled.
D) Pudding. Those little individual pudding snack packs are basically the best thing ever. I've been eating one a night. I justify that as being better than a heaping bowl of ice cream (because I could totally go for that every night of the week).
And this, my friends, is why the running and the working out are mandatory.
Have a great weekend!
