Today we finally went public with our exciting news! We are expecting baby #2 sometime around January 10, 2014. I’m so excited to start writing on my blog more throughout my pregnancy. I loved being pregnant with Annaliese and I wish I would have documented more things during the pregnancy. I’m going to try to update every week or so. Here is my first update:
This week the baby is the size of a Navel Orange.
That seems pretty big to me! Last week was a lemon so this seems like a big jump.
I am feeling SO much better than I did a few weeks ago. My 1st trimester was full of tons of nausea and no energy. I still don’t feel like all of my energy is back but the nausea is mostly gone. I am starting to get my appetite back too. For about the first 13 weeks I couldn’t really stomach too much. I’ve actually lost a few pounds since first finding out I was pregnant. I feel like I’m definitely headed the opposite way on the scale now 🙂
We have had a few doctor’s appointments so far and everything looks good. We had an early ultrasound around 6 weeks. There wasn’t too much to see but it was still pretty cool! The tech said I was measuring a few days ahead (I kind of thought I was) but they won’t change my due date unless I’m measuring over a week ahead. We are wondering if the baby will come closer to New Year’s or Christmas rather than the 10th! My next appointment isn’t until August which seems like a long time to wait.
I have been pretty surprised at how quickly I looked pregnant this time around. For comparison, here is a picture of me when I was 21 weeks pregnant with Annaliese :
And here is a picture of me from today at 15 weeks, 1 day:
I don’t think I look too much smaller in the 2nd picture! I am already wearing maternity shorts and pants because everything else just feels too uncomfortable.
I think that is everything I have to update on for now. I will try to update regularly because I would love to have a record of how I’ve changed from week to week!
