Getting Bigger!

This is baby Dawson at 12 weeks. Some days it seems this pregnancy is flying by and others it seems it is dragging. When I had this ultrasound last week, it was one of those days it seemed to be flying; just 4 weeks before the baby was as tiny as a pea and now he or she is the size of a large peach. Ultrasounds are so exciting and seeing those little arms and legs (which by the way I mostly saw long legs kicking around) and see that heartbeat is so special. I am going to try to post every now and then about my pregnancy (although it has been 3 1/2 months and I have only posted the announcement!) to keep in the scrapbook. Lane and Bo have their little baby books, but I guess this baby will be a little more high tech! The 2 pictures at the bottom are 8 week pictures..... (sorry they are rotated)

3D at 8 weeks:

The following info is for his/her scrapbook, so feel free to move along if bored and more to come in the next 5 months!)
I am 14 weeks along now and here is what is going on:
I felt you move at 13 weeks sitting in bible study and it wasn't really questionable, some may say it was early, but I have felt 2 other babies move in there and it was exactly the same! And now, you move every day, at first it was like little vibrations, but now at times it even feels like tiny tiny kicks!
I wore my first pair of maternity jeans last night ! (I think about an hour after I took a positive pregnancy test I started growing this time and adding numbers to the scale.....oh, well...)
I am feeling pretty good these days....had a rough month weeks 8-13, really nauseated and tierd (worse that with the first 2 I think), but it's over now I think and it is great to feel the signs that you are there by your kicks and not so much by my hormones!
Bo gets more excited about you every day...he has really taken to babies lately and I am so glad to hear him ask me every day something about you (Lane didn't need any time...she was excited and asking questions from day one).
More to come in a few weeks when we find out if you are XX or XY!

I love ultrasound pics! Its really amazing how fast those little ones develop inside of us. It kind of makes me sad to look back and see how tiny Mills used to be and how he's grown to a whopping 12lbs. 4oz. I want him to stay little forever!

I can't wait to know if this baby is a boy or girl! I couldn't believe it when I saw the ultrasound pics... seems to have gone by so fast already. My first one dragged on, second one seemed much faster and third seemed to fly by! Hold on! April/May will be here before you know it.
