12 Weeks Pregnant

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 ❤
