So I've been a little absent from the blog lately and I have good reason.
We're VERY excited to announce that we're expecting baby #2 in September!!! Ariana is over the moon with excitement that she's going to be a big sister.
I'm officially 13 weeks and 1 day today and although I'm still feeling tired I'm feeling a little more like my normal self. Sleeping is already starting to become uncomfortable and let me tell you fatigue and insomnia isn't a fun mix.
Here's my first belly shot at 12 weeks. Not much to show yet but we're getting there.
How far along? 13 weeks
Baby is the size of a peach! How cute!
Craving? first it was Red Hots (the candy) and then it was salt and vinegar chips, peach cobbler, milk, milk, milk, and while we were in England I adored sticky toffee pudding, oh yum!
Aversions? anything fried, seafood, the smell of cooking butter
Symptoms? dry heaving, gagging, some nausea, congestion, fatigue, insomnia, moodiness, growing pains, back pain, nipple pain and more...
Daddy's thoughts on the pregnancy so far? He's thrilled of course and he's been so helpful since I've been too tired to do much. He encourages napping for me which is great and I try to take advantage of it if he's home. He teared up at our first ultrasound when we heard the heartbeat for the first time. (172 bpm)
Ariana's thoughts on the pregnancy so far? She's been asking for a brother or sister for over a year now I'd say so she's super excited. She talks to "my baby" all the time and she's been requesting Daddy do things "since Mommy has a baby in her belly" which has been sweet. She wants a sister but she's coming around to the fact that it might be a brother and she told me she loves the baby and will love it "even if it's a boy".
