13-Weeks Pregnant

First off -- THANK YOU guys so much for all your sweet comments yesterday!
During our journey I promised myself that if it ever did happen I would NEVER forget what we have been through or what others are STILL going through.
For me every pregnancy announcement stung.
I hope that mine was a little different giving what we've been through.

I'm 13-weeks pregnant today, our actual due date is December 5th so I'm officially in my second trimester.
For the record - I don't plan on this becoming a pregnancy blog but I will share things here and there and hope that you all will stick around. 
For those who are still trying, I'll understand if you delete me from your reading list.
Not going to lie, I did the same thing during our journey.
I have kept a private blog for myself and have documented everything so far, I'll be sharing a few of those posts including when we shared the news with our parents.

The big question I keep getting is, 'how are you feeling?'.
Well, in the past week a lot better than I had been.
The first trimester for me included a lot of the nagging nausea feeling(without actual vomiting), and extreme exhaustion.
Believe it or not though, even with all of that I have pushed myself to keep up my 5-days a week walking 2-miles routine.
Some days were better than others but I hope to be able to keep this up as long as a I can.
I have found that it makes me feel better both physically and emotionally.
I'm still in regular clothes but I am starting to show.
Over the Memorial Day weekend at the lake we had Robyn(SIL)take our first official prego pictures for us.
Here's take #1.
And, take #2.
I think you can see my little belly better in this picture.
There's so much more to tell!
I feel like I having been keeping the biggest secret ever, and I guess I have!
Stay tuned for details of an upcoming 'babymoon' in just 2-weeks, a gender reveal party and more!
Thanks again, I truly feel like the luckiest girl alive!!

I walked two miles too. Twice a week and the other days I did water aerobics. It felt so good. I really think it helped me feel better all around. I walked up until like A week or so before I delivered. I was the healthiest I had prob been in my whole life. No booze no caffeine. Regular exercise.
Now this time around is a different story!!

Ashley said...

Smiling ear to ear. :)

You are sticking that out! Congratulations! Your story is so much like John Casey's, and so funny I remember telling you that story about his "Ebenezer". I remember that "sting" you speak of and how much it hurt not to have my own for 30 long years.. but they are worth the wait! And Emory promises to be a good big-cousin!

You are so adorable! Hello cute baby bump! I'm can't stop smiling for you all. So happy I don't have to keep my mouth shut anymore! :-)

Wiz said...

You are GLOWING in the pictures! So happy for you :) I always had the hardest time keeping it a secret and would usually let it slip to a couple people :) I know how you feel though that it is a relief when you finally tell everyone! Has it been hard to cook? That was the worse for me. I went from cooking all the time to quitting. I just couldnt do it anymore!

Dee said...
