12 Weeks




How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain:  3 -4  pounds    
Maternity clothes?  Wearing lots of leggings, dresses and skirts. Ready for some warmer weather so I can break out the maxi dresses again. 
Sleep:  All the time. I usually come home from work and fall asleep on the couch, wake up to eat dinner and then I'm in bed between 8 and 9. On the weekends I am averaging at least 12 hours of sleep a night. 
Best moment this week: I went to the doctor on Wednesday and got to see our sweet baby on the ultrasound. Our baby has changed so much in the past 6 weeks already. I was able to see baby moving around. Our little one definitely enjoyed moving it's arms and legs! 
Worst Moment this week:  Smells. My sense of smell has gotten really really strong lately. It's been challenging to go into public places especially a restaurant because I never know which smell is going to make me feel sick. 
Miss Anything?  Caffeine.  I've completely cut out caffeine (except for the occasional piece of chocolate) and there are some work days where I feel I really need it to survive the day.         
Cravings:  Ice cream. Please give me all the ice cream, specifically Snickers ice cream bars.  
Symptoms: Exhausted. I've been pretty fortunate where I only got sick once during the first trimester. I just felt nauseous all the time. This week I've noticed the nausea is slowly starting to ease away unless I get a strong whiff of something smelly.     
Looking forward to: Starting to really plan for baby. I've begun to get rid of some things here and there, trying to make space in our home for baby. We still have a long way to go.

Guess What!


We are expecting our first bundle of joy in September 2015! We are very excited. It has been a long journey for us to get to this point and we could not be happier! 

We are twelve weeks today. I had a doctors appointment yesterday and everything looked wonderful! I was able to see the baby's head, body, arms and legs. Our baby is active and is very healthy with a strong heartbeat! Seeing our sweet baby yesterday brought me tears of happiness.

We had so much fun with these pictures as well. We are thrilled to finally be able to share them! We are terrible secret keepers.




This is one of my favorites. 




Thanks to my awesome sister in law for these amazing pictures!
