12 Weeks!!!

I've recently gone through a phase. A phase I don't love. If you are female, I think you might's the "I'm a fatty" phase!

Now, you're probably thinking, "'re pregnant. You're supposed to feel that way." Well, I just need to tell those of you thinking that that I think you're so wrong. Feeling that way, the way it stinks when somebody thinks you're pregnant and you are SO not.

Fortunately, I think I have passed through the "is she pregnant or does she need to lay off the DQ for a while?" time of pregnancy, and after long talks with Blake about what I really look like, I've made a decision...


I say that constantly to the self-motivation tapes - "You are a successful person..." haha!

Never-the-less, I have made that decision, and I will stick with it!

So, with that, here I am at 12 weeks pregnant:

My BFF recently inspired me to begin the "mommy"-type blog, and I am using some help from Kelly's Korner.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 12 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby B is the size of a plum
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Wearing a Belly Band (it's saving my life!-basically you can wear your normal pants, but you don't have to button them)but other than that normal clothes

Gender: Can't wait to find out!
Movement: A couple of times I thought "is that what it feels like?" but I'm pretty sure I have not yet

Sleep: I'm sleeping great!
What I miss: Nothing yet
Cravings: Mexican food and Kroger Chocolate Milk

Symptoms: Some heartburn
Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat at my 12 week appointment

Now, my husband is LOVING my bump...I mean he will sit on the couch and rub my belly and sing to our baby (who, by this time, can hear every word). But he was feeling a little jealous one night...

Haha...I know what you are thinking, and yes, I will accept any prayers you say for us! :)

I am actually starting week 13 today, so I will continue to update at the end of each week! We're thankful for your prayers!
