12 Weeks!

Hello last week of my 1st trimester! You couldn't have come soon enough!! I REALLY hope this next trimester lives up to all I have hoped it will!!

We traveled up north to see family for a couple weeks this month and it was a grand vacation! A nice break from the heat and a nice break for this Momma. There were many willing hands to help chase my ever moving toddler and boy was that nice! I got in a couple naps, slept a little later then normal, had wonderful meals I didn't have to cook and enjoyed a nice cool breeze on the porch every morning. Yes it was divine! But, anyone who has a toddler or kids at all for that matter knows that vacation is a relative term when you have said kids in tow. Ava doesn't exactly sleep well away from home and has been like that since she was tiny, I was on the tail end of nursing her and this trip did me in! The weaning process was planned for once we got home and this trip made me more then ready to begin that process. Just being honest people, don't judge!

Ok, so back to being 12+ weeks pregnant, I felt great most of the time we were gone which was wonderful! It all changed the day we traveled home and the days following that. It was horrid. I don't suggest traveling newly pregnant, nausea's and with a toddler. I don't think I have ever been so ready to get off a plan as I was that day! I headed straight for the bathroom to *ahem* discharge anything I had eaten or drank that day. I got a couple funny looks when I came out of the stall! For almost a week after getting home I felt like I had gone backwards and was 7 weeks pregnant again. Just yesterday I have started to feel human again and am hoping this lasts.

Today I actually cleaned the bathroom, went to lunch with a friend, grocery shopped and cleaned out my fridge as I put all the groceries away. Can someone say productive day?! I am counting on waking up one day SOON and feeling a burst of energy and not having to spend the entire day tired from doing nothing. On a more wonderful note, I got to hear bitty babies heartbeat on Friday! It made everything seem less of a bother and reminded my why this whole process is SO worth it!

I hope to post some adorable pictures of my hilarious toddler, but I have to take some first! I need to get on that and once I have a belly to show I will post that too. At this point there is nothing there. I'm enjoying that while it lasts! Happy almost middle of the week friends!

Week 9

We are moving along over here and you will have to forgive my absence to this blog. You see when I sit down at the computer I suddenly become more nausea's then I already was. The thought of sitting here and composing a post hasn't set well with me. My goal this week was to blog, just once! So here I am...propped up in bed with my chamomile tea and some of Ava's natural gluten free animal crackers...blogging!

Week 9 of our bitty baby has arrived! I can't believe how fast this is moving along, I honestly thought it would move soooo sloooowww this time, but I was wrong! Don't get me wrong being home all day with a VERY active toddler and feeling green and exhausted has made for some VERY long days but we have survived. My poor husband has heard more then his fare share of whining of my part, yet he still comes home from work cooks us dinner most nights and then puts Ava to bed. Yes, I have a good one ladies! I have been feeling very pregnant these last couple weeks. I was just at the point of thinking I might just cruise through this pregnancy morning sickness free, and then it hit! Literally that fast and I was down for the count. But I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! More good days this week and no puking which is nice!

According to medical science our baby has reached the "fetus" stage, it never ceases to amaze me that at an inch long this baby is beginning to look like a baby. Arms, legs, a beating heart, eyes and all the internal organs are forming. Wow, no wonder I'm tired all the time! I am counting the weeks till that second trimester hits and hoping and praying it is all I have hoped it to be!

I plan to do a better job of documenting this pregnancy then I have so far! Hopefully with this nausea taking a hike soon that will become a reality!
