Well hello! After long last! Sorry for having taken quite the hiatus from the blog – I have no real excuse except for laziness. We’ve been doing well since the wedding and enjoying married life – traveling, eating (lots! particularly burgers), and then all the boring stuff like cleaning and going to work.
Naturally, I had to start back up with the blog now that we have a pretty significant life change coming on.
See what we did there? Went over pretty well with the Fam Fam too. Only had to hit up 3 stops on Thanksgiving to get everyone in for the surprise. See, I’m the baby on my side and there are 4 grandkids for my mom already. Also, there are another 11 for my dad and step-mom. But on Matt’s side, there’s a whopping 0 grand-babies, so this was a really big deal.
We’ve known since the beginning of October and keeping it under wraps was somewhat of a challenge. Thankfully, I’ve had next to no morning sickness *fingers-crossed it stays that way* just some heartburn here and there. We’re due June 12, 2018 – I’m really hoping that baby comes about 1.5 weeks later. I have my last real opportunity to be selfish and I don’t want to share my birthweek! 🙂
So here are some tidbits of info on how the pregnancy is going so far.
Sickness – not much, just some light nausea if I don’t eat in a timely manner. Never thrown up yet.
Other symptoms – Baby fatigue is no joke! I’ve always enjoyed afternoon naps, but I could seriously snuggle up anywhere in the office at the drop of a hat.
Cravings – Taco Bell chicken quesadillas. But really, it’s like non-cravings. I had to stop drinking coffee because the thought of it made me nauseous. I have been fine with hot rooibos tea, though. I also have no desire to eat our Sunday morning donuts at church anymore. So sad… and a lot of veggies have little appeal to me. Fruit is working out well though. yum! Water is gross to me too (more than normal).
Baby stats – Apparently baby is the size of a lime and that seems crrrrrrazy to me. Hands are about to open and then form fists. Bones are starting to harden. We got to hear the strong heartbeat last week.
Tune in next week for more news!
