the past couple weeks

Category: baby | April 12th, 2012


(umm…is it too early to start showing?? bc i am.) ;)
unfortunately the majority of my days (and nights) have been spent laying down…on the floor, on the couch, on the bed, on top of tons of toys because i don’t have the energy to move them. ;) let’s just say this baby, as tiny as it is, is wearing me out!! man. not to mention the lovely morning sickness that has kicked in full force. if you followed this blog when i was pregnant with P then you might remember how bad i had it with her too, not to mention how long (19 weeks!) i am hoping it’s not as bad this time around. we shall see! miss P and the mister have been troopers when it comes with dealing with me and my “lack of energy”…especially when it comes to food. ha. chick fil a has been very helpful lately.

well i’m officially 8 weeks today. :) i debated on when to announce this baby. usually you wait until you hear/see the first heartbeat but being with a midwife again there aren’t any ultrasounds to hear the heartbeat that early. around 10-12 weeks is when she can pick it up via doppler. clearly i couldn’t wait that long to spread the good news. but i trust God and know there’s a baby in there….otherwise something is really wrong with my body! ;)

it feels so good to be able to talk about what’s going on in my life now! hopefully i don’t scare off any readers with this new obsession. ;) i plan on doing another “belly series” with this baby. i like being able to look back at my growing belly and see what was going on at the time (because if i didn’t have those notes then i wouldn’t have been able to remember that much). but i won’t start until 12 weeks like last time. get excited! ;)
