This is such an exciting post- I’m 12 weeks pregnant! We made it to the safe zone and now I can sit back, relax and enjoy this pregnancy. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders- finally I can breathe easy again.
I have lots of fun updates for you- so here goes:
How far along: 12 weeks exactly (you are the size of a cute little lime)
Total weight gain: +1.2 lbs (this varies quite a bit- depending on how sick I was that day)
Maternity clothes: I finally bit the bullet and got some maternity pants- I feel like I’m wearing sweatpants and it’s glorious.
Mood: Excited I told my bosses at work and it went really well. I also have a doctor’s appointment later today with a scheduled ultrasound- I can’t wait to see baby again!
Sleep: I sleep a lot, I’m always super tired. I keep hearing that you get a little more energy during the second trimester- I’m ready for it!
Best moment of this week: It wasn’t this week but the week prior- I found out that my best friend is also pregnant and that she is due April 19th- the same as me!!! Can you believe it!?? I’m so excited that we get to experience this together and still a little shocked that we have the same exact due date.
Miss anything: Yes- I miss not being nauseous all the time. I’m SO ready for this sickness to go away.
Movement: no, it’s too early!
Food cravings: I’ve really loved fruit and avocados over the past week. Peaches are my favorite 🙂
Anything making you queasy or sick: Yes, everything! In case you haven’t heard I’m sick ALL the time! Please please please let this go away!!
Have you started to show yet: I’m not sure- sometimes I think I have a little belly and sometimes I think I’m just bloated haha. I can’t tell, but my pants are definitely getting too tight around the waist so something must be happening!
Gender: Okay a decision has been made! We are going to find out the gender! I’m so excited! Aaron still wants a boy and I think I’m okay with either- I just want a healthy, happy baby in my arms.
Labor signs: nope.
Belly button in or out: in.
Wedding rings on or off: on.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy all the time- excited for all the fun moments that are about to happen.
Looking forward to: All of Aaron’s Ohio friends are coming up for a visit this weekend. Aaron is going to make the big announcement- it’s going to be so fun!
Other news/stories: I just want to express what a big moment this is for us. We have been hoping and praying for a healthy pregnancy ever since we started trying a year and a half ago. We’ve been through some rough times, which I am actually grateful for because they made us so much stronger. I feel like this baby is extra special for us, and I’m so grateful for every second of this pregnancy ❤
