Week 12

Weight +2 Pounds
Waist +2 Inches
Cravings: Colombian food!!!!!
Dislikes: Nothing in particular, just random smells


So this week I got this awkward bump, it's not really a baby belly, it just looks like I ate way too much. Most of the time it is really really low, but when we took the picture so wasn't so what do you do?


This week I kept throwing up as planned by baby Luehmann it wasn't a bad week though, the throwing up is totally under control. On Thursday (1.27.12) we had our first ultrasound (pics below), I had to drink 36 ounces of water before getting there at 7am. Well I drank about 12 and threw up, I drank about 10 more and threw up. Then I chugged another 12 and once again I threw up, this time at the hospital I had to run away from the waiting room. I told the nurse I could keep trying but I just kept throwing up and she told me to stop. 


It was now time for the ultrasound, the doctor ding the ultrasound was awesome, she was sweet and super nice and laughed with us as we saw baby Luehmann flipping back and forth inside my belly. Dr. Nga needed the baby to be on his/her back but no, he/she refused and kept flipping to be on his/her belly. The doctor moved my belly around and the baby flipped back, only to move right back on his/her belly once we stopped moving. It was amazing to see the baby move, he/she moved his/her arms up and down, and just looked a bit annoyed at our intrusion. 


Dr. Nga took pictures, showed us the baby in 3D, which was crazy, and the baby looks totally like an alien right now ha. She explained a few things and then after 45 minutes of trying to get that baby moving to measure all the things she had to move she told us to go have breakfast and come back. We went to the cafeteria, I had a veggie smoothy and crackers and then we went back. The doctor said the baby looked great, and based on the measurement and the blood work the chances of a genetic disorder were very very low, like 1 in 12000. We went home so excited we got to see our baby, what an amazing miracle being pregnant is. Both Caleb and I are in constant awe of our Creator.

Semana 12

Peso +2 Libras
Cintura +2 Pulgadas
Antojos: Comida Colombiana!!!!
Me disguta: Nada en particular, solo olores por aqui y por alla. 

Esta semana tengo empezo a crecerme la barriga y tengo una barriguita rara. No es como la barriga de embarazo, es un mini bolita rara, como si hubiese comido mucho. La mayoria del tiempo es en el abdomen bajo pero cuano tomamos la foto estaba un poco mas arriba.


Las nauseas y el vomito siguen en marcha, el bebe Luehmann lo tiene todo planeado. No ha sido tan terrible, ya me he estado acostumbrando. El Jueves pasado (1.27.12) tuvimos nuestra primera ecografia (fotos al final). Tenia que tomarme 36 onzas de agua antes de las 7am. Me tome 12 y vomite, tome 10 mas y vomite. Decidi seguir tomando agua, tome 12 onzas mas y de nuevo vomite, esta vez en el hospital, tuve que salir corriendo de la sala de espera. Despues de eso le dije a la enfermera que podia seguir tomando agua pero que no paraba de vomitar y ella me dijo que dejara de intentar.

Llego la hora de la ecografia la doctora haciendo la ecografia fue increible. Fue super dulce y queridisima y se rio con nosotros mientras veiamos al bebe Luehmann dando vueltas en mi estomago. La doctora Nga necesitaba que el bebe estuviera acostado en su espalda pero no, el/ella seguia volteandose y acomodandose boca abajo. La doctora empezo a mover mi barriga y el bebe se volteo, y 2 minutos mas tarde volvio a acostarse boca abajo. Es increible ver al bebe moverse, ponia sus brazos arriba y abajo, y parecia molesto con la intrusion.


La doctora tomo fotos, nos mostro el bebe en 3D, y fue increible, el bebe se ve completamente como un alien ja. La doctora nos explico un par de cosas y despues de 45 minutos de mover al bebe para poder tomar las mediciones que necesitaban nos dijeron que fueramos a desayunar y volvieramos despues. Fuimos a la cafeteria, yo me tome un smoothie de vegetales con galletas y volvimos. La doctora dijo que el bebe se veia bien, basandose en las mediciones y la sangre que me habian tomado la semana anterior las probabilidades de un desorden genetico eran muy bajas, 1 en 12000 me dijo. Nos fuimos a la casa felices de haber visto a nuestro bebe, estar embarazado es un milagro increible. Caleb y yo estamos mas y mas impresionados con el poder de nuestro Creador.
