We’re out!

20 Jul

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:

15 weeks

This week the baby is the size of a Navel Orange.

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!
