13 weeks and a gut... this is ridiculous.

So... it seems as my uterus is growing it has decided to push all that extra fat I was hiding underneath my ribcage into plain view. I'm not "showing" and I don't have a cute "preggy belly," I have a gut....

And I used to be able to suck it in, but no more. My muscles cramp up when I try to suck it in for too long.

So, I give up. If you see me... No, I'm not showing. I'm just getting fatter. Give it a few weeks and I'll be showing for real and all will be well.

What's really sad is that I've technically lost 8 pounds since I got pregnant due to this lovely overwhelming nausea. Only a pregnant woman can throw up everything she eats and get fatter at the same time. Ugh.

I took belly pictures yesterday because it was my officially 13 weeks day, but I'm not posting them. With my shirt down, I look pregnant. With my shirt up..... not good.

I'm going to go take a shower and puke.... my normal morning routine. Talk to you later!

12 Weeks!!

I'm am officially 12 weeks pregnant today! According to some, today marks the end of my first trimester. According to others, I still have one week to go.

We had a doctor's appointment today! We didn't get to see our baby again, but we did get to hear the heartbeat for the first time! The doctor had trouble finding the heartbeat at first, and then when she found it, the baby kept moving out of the way. That's what Jason does when I try to wake him up when he's sleeping, too. : ) The heartbeat was a strong 160 bpm.

To celebrate hitting our twelve week mark (silly, I know), we bought a "Bringing home Baby" outfit. It will be the outfit the baby wears home from the hospital. Originally, we were going to buy a gender neutral outfit, but then we found these on sale:

I love them! We plan to just donate the one for the gender that we don't have...
In case it is hard to read, they say "Cute thanks to Mom and Dad."
I am so excited about becoming a mommy but I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. I need to get to work on the nursery.....
