12 weeks!

I don't know how often I'll do these updates but I'm going to try my best. if there's one thing this pregnancy has made it me it's L-A-Z-Y so we'll see how this goes ; )

how far along: 12 weeks, 2 days!

baby size: lime : )

baby's progress: baby's reflexes have officially developed. he/she will begin being able to open/close its fingers and curling his/her toes. baby is 2 inches and weighs 1/2 oz : )

weight gain: not sure until I go to the doctor again next week but I'm thinking right around 5 lbs.

stretch marks: not yet.. I need to get some lotion to *hopefully* prevent them!

sleep: UGH..no! I really need to get a pregnancy pillow because sleep is TERRIBLE. I'm so uncomfortable and learning how to not sleep on my stomach is really hard.

gender: not sure yet, we will find out in about 3 weeks though!! lets just say I would be shocked if this baby is a girl. I've always thought I was a "boy mom"

movement: we got to see baby moving around everywhere a few weeks ago during an ultrasound but I haven't been able to feel anything yet.

best moment this week: finally agreeing on a name for baby if it's a girl! we've had a boy name for a few weeks but could NOT agree on a girl name.. now we just have to work on a middle name.. ah!

looking forward to: our next appointment next Thursday!

food cravings: CARBS!! pasta, pizza, bread, you name it if it's a carb it's MINE!

weirdest food I ate this week: nothing out of the ordinary.

anything making you queasy or sick: EVERYTHING. This has to be the worst part of being pregnant..I am pretty much sick 12 out of 24 hours/day. Zofran helps but only for so long.

labor signs: nope

what I miss: sleeping through the night, not wanting to throw up everyday, and diet coke..

symptoms: just nausea and sometimes lower back pain. If I'm sitting on the couch I usually have the heating pad on my back.

things that suck: peeing every 5 minutes and not sleeping good.

things that don't suck: my growing belly.. I LOVE IT!

how we got here...

thank you so much for all your sweet comments on our big news yesterday! we are so excited for this baby and feel so blessed.

around october adam and I started throwing around the idea of having a baby. we decided we would go off birth control in december and just "see what happens". with the type of birth control I had we had to wait 2 months before we could try so march was our first real month of "trying". we kept saying that we would be happy if we got pregnant by the end of the summer, but apparently god had different plans for us because we got pregnant the first month haha

randomly on march 27th I decided to take a test after work just to see. well turns out there was super faint line! I decided to take another one in the morning to see if it was any darker. it was. I knew I wanted to take a digital test just to be sure before I told adam though, so I tried to go to the grocery store before work but none were open.  let me just say having to go to work the day you find out your pregnant should be illegal because all I wanted to do was run out of that school so fast and go take a test!! after school I went to target and bought a digital test and took that thing right there in the target bathroom ha! after what seemed like a million minutes it popped up saying I was indeed pregnant. I went back out and bought a onesie and a "happy birthday dad" card to give to adam that night.

since adam's birthday was the following tuesday I told him I wanted to give him his present early. he literally had NO IDEA. it was so fun to see him open the present and figure out what it meant. we decided to go over to my parent's house and tell them right away. it was such a fun night of sharing such great news : )

I'm not going to lie it has been a HARD few months for me. I have been sick sick sick, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I am so excited to be a mommy and just praying the second trimester treats me better ; )
