14 weeks and going strong!

So here we are are at 14 weeks. I am happy to be here and so glad that everything is going well.

I asked for a doppler for my birthday so I can listen to the baby's heartbeat. I've had it since Tuesday and I've heard the heartbeat 3 times. It really is the most beautiful sound in the world and I love being able to check in with Teddy Graham when my worries are getting the better of me.
On Tuesday night when Jeremy and I listened you could hear Teddy's heart beat and mine at the same time, it was really cool :) We are only listening once a day and when we find the heartbeat we only listen for about 30 seconds and then turn it off, but the peace of mind it give me is amazing. I'm hoping it will help keep me calm between appointments.

This week has been another one that was a bit rough. Monday was my birthday and my cold from last week made another appearance, or maybe it was a new one, but either way I had aches, a fever, sore throat, and headache pretty much all day on my birthday. Luckily all of it was gone except the sore throat by Tuesday cause that's the day Jeremy took me out to celebrate the fact that I'm now 26. I wish the sore throat would go away though it is NOT fun. I guess I'm going to have to be more strict about limiting sugar. I think I overdid it a bit yesterday and when I got up this morning it was really bad.

So I'm just moving along and loving everyday I get to spend with this little one, even though I don't think being pregnant is that much fun!

Oh something else kind of exciting happened this week. It was the first time someone who didn't know I was pregnant noticed that I was. Jeremy and I were at the target in south bend where Jeremy used to work before he started Andrews looking in the baby isle and one of his old co workers walked by and noticed him. They looked at him and me and said WOW you're expecting, congrats! It was kind of fun to have someone be able to tell I was pregnant. I'm sure being in the baby isle also had something to do with it but it was still fun.

Also this week I am 10 weeks away from viability. This means that in 10 weeks if the baby is born early he/she will have a chance at life, and the drs will try to save him/her. I know it might seem kind of morbid but with what happened last time it is a milestone I can't wait to reach. Gabriel never had the chance to live, cause he was too young, so if I get to the point where Teddy Graham has a chance it will be big for me, and probably go a good long way to helping me relax a bit more.

All in all I'm doing ok (better when my sore throat leaves me!) and baby is doing awesome.

Here are some pics. Notice Zoe in all of the pictures, doesn't want to be left out, and I think still trying to figure what in the world we are doing!

My magical disapearing toes, getting harder to see everyday!
