The Announcement

I have already posted this on Instagram and Facebook, but wanted to make it official on the blog as well…



I have many more things to say and now that I’m out of the first trimester/don’t feel like complete death, I am actually able to tolerate sitting here long enough to say it.

Though I’ve been very absent lately, partially due to the sickness and also the anxiety of when to share, how to share, what to share…etc. I’m going to start doing weekly updates from here on out, so I can really document this pregnancy. I have plenty to share about the first trimester, so that will happen soon, too. Expect the good, the bad, and the ugly. There were some bumps along the way. This has by no means been an uneventful pregnancy, but we’re just so thankful for it anyways.

How far along: 13 weeks, 3 days (officially 2nd trimester, according to gestation & development!)
Gender: We find out in about a week and a half! My vote is for girl, Kevin’s is for boy.
Weight gain: Maybe 1lb., with all the morning sickness, I hadn’t gained any as of last week.
Maternity clothes: Maternity bottoms, but I can still wear loose fitting non-maternity tops.
Stretch marks: None, so far.
Belly button in or out: In.
Sleep: A lot less comfortably in the last few days, I’m tossing & turning a lot!
Best moment this week: Confirmation that the baby is doing awesome and getting out of the second trimester!
Worst moment this week: Tossing & turning at night! A lot of gas/bloating/indigestion.
Miss anything: Nothing that I can think of.
Movement: None yet, but we have seen the baby move a LOT on the ultrasounds.
Cravings: Tacos and milkshakes.
Queasy or sick: Not constantly, but still happening in the mornings. I haven’t gotten sick since last Thursday though! (This is a huge improvement, I was getting sick at least once a day up until last week).
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender! And the next ultrasound. I’ve been spoiled up until this point and we’ve been seeing baby every week. Now that we’ve been discharged from our RE’s office, we’re on a regular schedule. Our next appointment is Cinco de Mayo! Seems so far away.
