Embracing This Pregnancy

It's been kinda tough to get excited about this pregnancy.  I mean...I am so excited about the new baby that will be joining us in 5 and a half months, but the pregnancy itself? At this point I am just tired.

I am starting to feel better, I really am, but you have to understand that that does not mean that I feel better.  For example, it is almost 11 AM and I have already thrown up twice (which Jack find hilarious by the way).  Most days I succeed in reminding myself that there are women out there that would give their right arm to be feeling the way that I am for the reason that I am, but other days...I just want to host a pity party of one.

We had a midwife appointment on Monday, and thankfully despite all the sickness, the medicines, and the allergic reaction to said medicine, the baby is doing marvelously. It's little heart was beating beautifully, and we could even hear it kicking! I can't feel it yet, although I am anxiously awaiting those first few thump-thumps from within.

I have lost five pounds in the past month, and since I was pretty slim to begin with, I look pretty twiggy right about now, but I have no doubt that as the morning sickness wanes (and it WILL) the numbers on the scale will quickly recover. 
So, there you have it.  An itty bitty little belly at 14 weeks.  Small as it may be, Jack has noticed the change, and is constantly lifting my shirt to point to my belly.

I tried to tell him there was a baby in there, to which he looked at me...thought about it...pointed to my belly and whispered...'poop'.




The sun is shining, Jack has a new bubble wand to try out, and I am pregnant.  I will have a good day, and I hope you will too.

  1. The poop comment. Oh my word, boys are SO funny! It amazes me how pregnancy just drains some and others act like they can't tell a difference. I was never the latter. Praying you are well on your way to no throwing up, soon. (You still look super cute!)
