1 Samuel 1:27

For this child did I pray, and the Lord hath granted me my petition, which I asked of him

Today is the day I've been looking forward to for the past six weeks!  The day I FINALLY get to shout to the world that Baby W* is coming!

It was definitely just as exciting as I pictured it, if not more.  I'm so overcome with happiness today!!  I've gotten the sweetest messages and phone calls, and I feel incredibly blessed to know these are the people our kid will grow up knowing.

Thank you all for your encouraging words and your outpouring of love!!

Here's to the next six months being healthier and sweeter than the last three!

Due Date: last week of May 2013

How far along? I'm at the twelve-week mark! SO EXCITING!!!!!

Symptoms: nausea, minor cramps, sore boobs, constant hunger, hormonal

This week, Baby is the size of: a plum

Total weight gain: I really need to buy a scale (no I don't!) - either way, still negative from starting weight

Gender: unknown

Food cravings: haha, I emailed my mom yesterday asking her to come home and make me a list of foods, so I guess that's what I'm craving! mom's home cooking. yumm.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm still fighting with eggs and pork, and no sign of being able to cook yet.

Maternity clothes? negative captain!

Sleep: oh man, I haven't been able to get much sleep, and it is killing me! The 2 AM wake up calls from the Nausea Monster are just horrible.

Movement: baby moves lots! I just can't feel it.

Stretch marks? nope

Wedding rings on or off? on

Swelling? Nope

Belly Button in or out? in

Labor Signs: I have plenty of months left until that happens

Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm just BLAH lately.  It is super boring and lonely up here by myself!!

Best moment this week: publicly announcing the pregnancy on FB ;)

What I miss: LAW, my cooking, my parents, feeling normal after every meal

Looking forward to: Dec. 10th, that's the next baby appointment! then going home for Christmas.  Thanksgiving is going to be super stinky this year! I wish I could've made my way out to Memphis after all.

  1. Yay for announcing your happy news! It feels good to shout it to the world ;)

    Stupid nausea monster! Just take it a day at a time, and I know it's annoying when people say this...but: it's so worth it! As if you didn't already know that, but it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you feel like poop.

    It WILL get better, and when you feel your little one kicking and doing somersaults: your heart will smile even more.

    Sending you happy preggers vibes!
