12 Weeks

How Far Along?  12 weeks

Feeling/Symptoms?  Like last week, I have been getting sick again.  I am grateful that it is not as bad as some people get, but it is still unpleasant.  I feel like I am actually starting to show a little- according to what I wear mostly.  

Food Cravings/Aversions: -  In general, no foods seem appetizing.  When I try and plan our menu for the week, I just can't come up with things that sound good to me.  We've been eating out a bit too much because of this.  I need to get myself back on a more healthy track of eating!  Again, I've been craving lots of juice this week.  Cranberry Grape and Orange juice are my drinks of choice for the past two weeks.

11 Weeks

How Far Along?  Today I'm 11 weeks and about 5 days.

Feeling/Symptoms?  I have been getting sick quite a bit this week- but it has been mostly in the evenings instead of the morning.  Smells are the worst trigger, as well as just the sight or smell of something gross.

Maternity Clothes?  Nothing yet, but I did get some hand me downs of larger sized "regular" pants, it feels nice to have more room. My jeans with the hair tie extender are getting uncomfortable, and I can't find my belly band right now.  Need to find it!

Food Cravings/Aversions: -  I've been craving lots of juice this week.  Cranberry Grape and Orange juice are wonderful!  I've also been lots of crackers.

10 weeks

How Far Along?  Today I'm 10 weeks and about 5 days....again, I'm late on posting :)

Feeling/Symptoms?  I experienced my first morning sickness this week.  I was eating oatmeal for breakfast, and the last bite just didn't settle well with me.  Other than that, I've actually been feeling very good.  I believe the prenatal vitamins from the doctor are kicking in and I've had more energy this week than I have in probably a month and a half.  

Maternity Clothes?  Still nothing but the belly band and some hair ties to expand my pants.

Food Cravings/Aversions: -I can't say that I have been craving anything specific this week.  I've drunk a lot of orange juice, but I dont think it was really a craving.  Food aversions- I am not liking the look or smell of mayonaise right now.  Yuck!

9 Weeks

How Far Along?  Today I'm 9 weeks and about 5 this post is a little late

Feeling/Symptoms?  So far I have been feeling surprisingly well.  I have not been nauseous at all- so thankful for that!  I have been EXTREMELY tired for the past 3 weeks or so.  After I get home from work, I will usually take around a 30 min to one hour nap, and there have been several nights that I've made it to bed around 8:30pm!  This week specifically I've had a cold/allergies, so that hasn't been fun added with pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes?  Some of my regular pants are starting to get snug.  I have added a hair tie through the button hole to expand them a bit.  Last weekend we went ahead and bought a Bella Band- I've used it once so far, and it felt wonderful. :)  I have not purchased any maternity clothes yet though, and I think it will be a while before they are really needed.

Doctor's Appointment:  We went this week to our first doctor's appointment.  Things look good, they gave us our due date of May 6th, 2013 and I got a few questions that had been on mind answered. Our absolute favorite part was hearing our baby's precious heartbeat.  I'm so amazed at the miracle of life!

How long have you known?  We found out we were pregnant around four weeks.  We told only immediate family at first, and then told a few close friends.  We wanted to at least wait until our first appointment to share the news. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: If you saw Jeremy's announcement post on Facebook, you know that I'm avoiding Mexican at all cost.  The very thought of Mexican food is just really disgusting right now.  As far as cravings, this week all I've wanted is clementine oranges.  I think my body was lacking some vitamin C from the cold/allergies. I've also really taking a liking to carbonated water- Strawberry Kiwi flavor from Wal-Mart.

Jeremy and I are excited to announce that we are expecting our first little bundle of joy in early May!

Today was our first doctor's appointment, and it was such a joy to see our tiny little baby moving around and listen to it's precious heart beat.  What a miracle!  Praising God for His blessing and praying protection for our sweet baby.
