I had my 12week ultrasound today!

I'm very happy to say everything went very well with the Nubbin. Carl brought along Sophia and she was good throughout the ultrasound, mainly because she was eating.

Nubbin measured ahead (as compared to a dating u/s at 6wk4days) and came out about 13weeks, which is much like big sis who after her dating u/s at 5wk6days measured a week ahead at the NT scan and then 2 weeks at the 20week u/s.

The baby had HR of 170 which is the exact same as big sis throughout my pg. Nubbin was very well behaved for this ultrasound unlike big sister who was never facing right.

I have enter trashy mom-dom

I got her ears peirced. I would take a picture but for some reason I can't find my camera. Once the hubs come home I will throw unwillingly give her to him and look for it. I don't see what the big fricken ta-do is about her ears. I figure get it done now while she's little and can be soothed with a bottle than when she is seven, bugs the shit out of me to get them done, then makes a scene in front of the entire mall, and eventually ends up with uneven peircings... but I digress.

Also today I took her highness out in the snow for a walk. She was all bundled up in the stroller and now snow touched her precious self but she had a damn good time. I was sooo happy to be out of the house for the first time in 48 hours I didn't care how cld it was.

Most of the time I balance on being a terrible mom

A quick run down. I failed at breastfeeding, she wears disposable diapers, she doesn't nap, her formula is made with tap water, she's never eaten a heated bottle in her life, occasionally she eats from a bottle that is more than 2 hours old, occasionally she drinks refrigerated formula that is older than 24 hours, she plays by herself, I let her cry sometimes when I need to do something (like pee or eat or breathe), and my latest is I'm stealing her childhood away by being pregnant.

That being said I'm a terrible pregnant woman: another "quick run down". I eat lunch meats without nuking them, I've eaten tuna for a week straight, I have such a hard time remembering to take my vitamins, I rough house with my husband, I frequently lift Sophia (18lbs) and the groceries (usually like 40lbs), and most of all I cried out of sadness and fear when I saw that little "+" show up on my stick.

Yet my daughter is always fed, people frequently tell me she's the happiest baby they've met... I can't say much about clean I mean I bathe her regularly I put her in clean clothes every day but I can't help it she goes something on her shirt in the 10 minutes before we left the house. She will still be loved with I have Nubbin, she will still get mommy time - just not as much. She will still grow up, learn new things, and play.

As for Nubbin I still love this baby enough to cry hysterically (I'm talking hiccups, unable to see, and snot) when I saw blood a couple nights ago. This baby will receive the same love as its sister just different. I was sad when I saw the + but on the same time I was happy because believe it or not babies are miracles not matter how you look at them.

Now if you excuse me I'm off to be a mediocre parent.

We've learned some new tricks

Sophia can roll back to belly. She showed me this and then promptly rolled belly to back. Woohoo!!!

She has also learned to squeal which frankly I think is one of the cutest noises I have heard in a while.

As for nubbin I'll be 10 weeks on Thursday, my how time is flying. I can't believe on the 18th I'll be having my NT scan. I had my NT scan with Sophie on January 27, 2010 so everything is happening around the same time with Nubbin.

I'm honestly beginning to think this 2under1 thing is going to happen... wheeze
