13 weeks!

I promised myself that I wasn't going to "spam" my blog with pregnancy updates so I won't do that, but the occasional update won't hurt anybody and I want this journey to be a part of the blog that I will print for the girls (and this baby!) in a few years. 
So, here's my update... I am 13 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and even though it still feels surreal at times, we are incredibly excited by the prospect of a new baby come October! :)
I felt very crappy for the first few weeks and I'm really lacking in the "energy" department; my bed is my best friend these days and I'm ok with that even though I've had to cut down significantly on my day to day activities and "on-the-go" lifestyle.  A girl can't have it all, right? 
Now that I'm in the 2nd trimester, I feel MUCH better; the nausea has subsided and even though I do feel heartburn pretty much every day, it isn't nearly as bad as it was in the beginning.  
I did my preliminary blood test and everything came back normal.  I also had blood drawn from the Panorama Test last Wednesday and I am eagerly awaiting the results, which should take about another week to come back.  Not only will I know about genetic abnormalities and other disorders, but I will also find out the gender of this little one, which is about the most exciting thing aside from having the actual baby! 
My belly is growing by the minute and I get unbearable headaches about twice a week, but aside from that this has been a very uneventful pregnancy so far (thank God!).  I have already felt *some* movement and I love that feeling so much!
Next doctor's appointment is on April 15th, I'll update more then!
Here are a few pictures... one of my latest ultrasound at 12 weeks, a belly shot and also the most adorable 13 weeks ultrasound video! :)
