Baby Brown is getting bigger!

Jason & I met Dr. Wilkes (the doctor that will deliver the baby) today. He
was awesome! He made me feel much better about everything going on with my body & the baby. It seems like every time I have an ultrasound, they tell me I'm 3 days earlier than the last. Today I measured in at 11 weeks, 4 days. The baby was VERY active! He/she was rolling around & kicking its arms & legs. It was so neat! We will hopefully find out what we're having on July 23rd & have a more definite due date by then. But, it seems like I'm due around the 1st week of January. Yeah!! We are so excited!

I had all of my 1st trimester tests done. They took around 12-13 vials of blood from my left arm. That was crazy. They are doing testing for down syndrome & other chromosomal disorders. I just couldn't believe they had to take so much blood!

In these pictures you can see the baby's profile & the arms above its face (click to ENLARGE):

The doctor also gave me a full prescription of Chocolate! It says "Take as needed while pregnant" - HA:

A free pregnancy book:

And, a PINK poker chip for a free 20 minute foot massage at "Belly Bliss":

I wanted to keep everyone updated. Have a good day! :)
