I think her legs are cute all curled up like this
Stretching out her legs
Sucking her thumb...again
And again...(this picture is from above, the top of her head)
This my favorite...the bottom of her cute little feet!
I think I see a ballerina in our future...1st position anyone?
And the best part...Girl PARTS!!

My mom and dad drove down for the big ultrasound and before we went back to the room my mom pointed out that we both (Justin and I) subconsciously wore blue... she was right...weird.
Here are some short video's of our little princess kicking and even clapping?? It was too funny. And at the end of the ultrasound, she fell back asleep, but the technician was even giggling about her position...she was laid back with both her hands behind her head, elbows pointing up like she was relaxing in a hammock...hahah, it was just as funny as you are picturing it. A little 3.5 inch baby posing for the camera...she is a ham already I'm afraid! I hate that we didn't get a picture of that moment.
I'll have to post all the fun pictures once I get to school on Monday and can scan them!
The doc also relieved any of our fears about abnormalities, he said he is quite certain that there is nothing wrong with our baby at all, everything looks just perfect...man, that is so relieving to hear.
Until next time...I have to go buy something PINK!

Symptoms and cravings are the same as always...tried to come off my nausea medicine again...bad idea. I get to stop taking my Progesterone prescription now that I made it to 14 weeks. One less to take, yay.
We get to find out the gender TOMORROW. Let's all pray that the kid is in a good mood and we get the "good" ultrasound technician...I wonder if you can put in special requests.
I'll write more tomorrow!

Here are some still shots of the baby too:
Sucking it's thumb...again!
They did the nuchal translucency test for Down Syndrome and it turns out...I was right. They do NOT do that test on everyone. The doc didn't tell us but, he was a bit worried about the measurement of Miracle's nuchal translucency at our last appointment. But this time, it was smaller, and the nasal bone was present so Baby Tyner has a low chance of having Downs. Thank goodness!
We had a different ultrasound technician this time and she REFUSED to even look at the baby's privates. She said it was too early, I don't blame her...if she told us wrong, she'd be known as "that technician" which I am sure comes with ridicule from her fellow technicians...But, the good news is that Dr. Maher said he was setting up an ultrasound in two weeks (we'll be 14 weeks then) specifically to tell the gender!! So in two weeks....we'll know. I think it's a good thing we don't know what it is as I head off to the Mom2Mom sale this weekend, maybe it will inhibit my spending to maternity clothes only.......ORRRRRR, I may just buy anything I see that is cute for a little boy or a little girl! Uh oh!
We're going to the regular OB today, don't expect anything more exciting than yesterday's appointment...but, I'll post any interesting pictures we get.

So, everyone says something different when it comes to trimesters??? Some say that once you reach 12 weeks, you've started your second trimester but, then some say it isn't until week 13 or 14...so, who knows? So, I THINK I am in my second trimester! Woo Hoo!
This week I kept wishing I could feel Miracle move...I just worry that he is doing alright in there and a kick or punch every once in a while would do mommy some good. I know I have a long way to go before I start feeling her though :( I'm excited to go to the doctors this week. Thursday is the high risk doc and Friday is my regular OB. I'm not getting my hopes up on finding out the sex of the baby even though the high risk lady said we may be able to ...it just seems so early...but hey, if we do get lucky, I'm going to the Mom2Mom sale with Susie this weekend and I just MAY be able to buy REAL gender specific stuff! If not, I'll focus on maternity clothes! Either way, I'm happy.
So, any of you who have been pregnant out there surely know what I am talking about when I say I had the one hour Glucose test. Normal women don't have to do this until later on in their pregnancy and once they pass, they never have to do it again...but, we aren't normal now, are we? I had to do it early (because of the PCOS, insulin resistance thing) and well, they haven't told me if I've passed...no news is good news I guess? If I don't pass...heaven forbid...I will have to take the THREE HOUR test! yikes! Either way, I'll be taking this test at least one more time during my pregnancy just to make sure I don't develop diabetes. When we go back this week to the high risk doctor he is going to test the baby's nuchal translucency and ensure that the nasal passages have formed correctly...these are both tests for Downs Syndrome (and they are done by ultrasound). I worried a bit when he told me he was going to be looking at these things...why did he need to? Did he see something wrong with the baby? Does he think my baby has Downs? I'm trying not to worry since some other women who were high risk told me that they think he tests every baby for that...I'll just be glad when it comes back all clear...
Cravings so far: Ham and Cheese sandwiches with potato chips on them, white cheddar popcorn, and PLUMS.
Symptoms so far: I ran out of my nausea medicine this week, and BOY did I feel it. Once you're on the medicine for so long and start feeling better every day, you can't help but think to yourself, "Maybe the nausea is over for me?" HAHA, but right when you give the medicine time to get out of your system...you realize just how wrong you were! Don't worry people, I got that prescription refilled and should be back to normal shortly :) Another symptom: I know its too much information but...my worst symptom these days is GAS! Miracle is a BAD little boy...or girl. Justin says he will be sure to spank shim for this when he/she comes out! :) haha!
Oh and...I signed up for Twitter. Not that I really want it, but all the news shows are saying it's the next big thing. So, since I was the girl who held off for YEARS before getting a facebook or myspace, even a blog for goodness sake...I swore I wouldn't have any of them and look at me now. I always cave and for once I didn't want to be the last to jump on the bandwagon! So anyway, follow me (http://twitter.com/ChristiTyner) and let me know that you are on there so I can follow you TOO! I hope this doesn't turn out to be stupid???!!

In this week we have had lots of visitors. My sister, Brandy and her husband Jeff came down for a couple days with their 4 kids. We had tons of fun, and didn’t really DO much…kids can make a boring day at home interesting. So, after discussing and calculating with my youngest niece and nephew how long it would be until we reached September (and they can hold the baby), they truly understood the length of time when I told them, “Baby will be here before Christmas”, and they let me know that that wouldn’t be too long at all, whew…good to know :) While we were on the subject, I decided to ask them what they thought my baby was going to be, a boy or a girl. Well, I have three nephews and one niece so you can probably predict what the vote was…three voted for boy and one voted for girl…haha, they are so predictable. Well, they say the mother usually has an instinct about what her baby is going to be…but, I don’t think I do. SOO many people keep telling me…you are definitely having a girl. As a matter of fact, my 3 nephews and Audrey are the ONLY ones who have guessed “boy” so far. But honestly, I think people just assume that I'll have a girl because I myself am SO girly. I don't think it works that way though. It’s funny. I’m going to let my kids at school guess what they think I’m having…maybe give them some extra credit if they get it right?(I am predicting they will vote very similar to my young niece and nephews).
Justin’s buddy Randy also came to stay with us this weekend as well (we had a full house people). He cooked us duck…it was pretty good.
So, as for the pregnancy this week. All is well.
Symptoms so far: Zofran is my hero, nausea is no more as long as this drug is in my system. PTL, there have been no more migraines. I’ve gotten better at controlling my eating to make me feel better…tiny bits all the time. I am constantly snacking and learning to stop eating a delicious meal (even though I REALLY don't want to) exactly when I’m full (if I eat just a little too much, it wants to come back up). Fatigue had become a stranger for a few weeks there, but today, it’s back.
Cravings so far: Still have a thing for white cheddar popcorn. Cereal is appealing all times of the day, and I go through about 4 apples and oranges daily too.
On Thursday we leave for Breckinridge, Colorado for my first ever “non-ski” trip. My doc says definitely NO on me even trying the bunny slope. I probably wouldn’t have any way. So, I’ll be looking into, spas, shopping, and sleigh rides in our area. Anyone got any idea what I can do while everyone else is out tearing up the slopes? Jo already told me she would be my spa/shopping buddy for most of the time, and Jus promised to come home at lunch every day. So…let’s hope I’m not emotionally needy the rest of the time :) haha. We’ll get back on Monday, see the high risk doc on Thursday, and then my regular doc on Friday. I’ll keep you guys updated on the gender! I can’t wait to find out because my husband and I are going to need some SERIOUS time to decide on a name…we don’t seem to agree on ANY! I lean towards PREPPY and he leans towards COUNTRY. Oy!
Thank you all so much for your prayers, I know you are sustaining this pregnancy!
