Hello, Baby M! Meet the Blogworld.


WE'RE HAVING A BABY!


Is that not the cutest little button nose you've ever seen?


Whew. If that wasn't the hardest secret to keep for nine whole weeks! Hubs and I are absolutely over the moon excited and so happy to be sharing the news with everyone! Not to mention, I can't believe that I'm sharing my due date/due week with a few of my favorite bloggers! It's been so wonderful to have been following along with these women on their journeys to motherhood but at the same time, so frustrating for me because I hadn't quite found the confidence to post about our new addition! Well friends, the confidence has been found.

And this may or may not be turning into one of those blogs. You know the kind. Where I post pictures of my uterus. And gush over every single second of my pregnancy. Don't worry. I'll be straight with you all. I'm honest like that. It's not all lambs and lillies. It's been tough! And pregnancy is NOT always pretty. In fact, I'm waiting for that part of it. And even though this might turn into one of those blogs, I'm going to love every single minute of it.

Don't worry. There will be plenty of Sheepie pictures and posts. And posts about the hilarious things my husband says. And when I find the energy to shop again, I'll throw pictures of my loot up here too. Same as always. But there will be some baby thrown in there. I'm just warning you.

Did I mention that Hubs and I may or may not have bought a house along the way? I do believe we have some serious catching up to do, blogworld. It's been way too long.

Ok. Before I go, let's not kid ourselves. What would a baby post be without the infamous weekly survey?

12 weeks, 3 days

Total Weight Gained/Loss? Up 3.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. Mostly because I live in scrubs and black yoga pants. But it does look like I ate a few too many Dunkin Donuts.

Sleep? All the time. I don't think I've seen 9:30pm for months. No joke. And I've been curling up in the infusion chairs at work during my lunch break and snoozing away my lunch hour since December.

Best Moment of the Week? Hearing Baby M's heartbeat for the second time, 155 beats per minute!

Movement? Only seen on ultrasound. Which is especially weird when Baby M is bouncing all over the place in there and I can't feel a single thing.

Food Craving? NumNumNum. Milkshakes, please.

Food aversions: Don't even talk to me about red meat. Just the thought... Woof.

Morning sickness? I prefer to call it Functional Nausea. Okay, so I gag a little from time to time, but no real pukage. Just nausea. All day.

Gender? We cannot wait to find out!!

Labor Signs? No thank you.

Belly Button? I'm starting with an outtie. This is going to get interesting.

What I miss? Chardonnay. Margaritas. Sigh.

What I'm looking forward to: Every day! Just knowing that we've created another life just absolutely blows my mind. I don't typically get too "deep" on this blog and I personally would like to keep it that way- but holy smokes. I'm growing a human being. It just doesn't get any better than that.

Weekly Wisdom: Don't deny yourself a craving here and there. Go with the flow.

Milestones: Getting to see our baby grow from 8 weeks, to 10 weeks to 12 weeks. Hearing the heartbeat and steadily and healthily approaching the second trimester.

So there you have it. We've had a lot going on these past few months. A new baby on the way and after months of searching, a new house. Well, almost. You know, pending home inspection and all those other pesky things that make this already difficult process even more difficult, drawn out and frustrating! Needless to say, we've been quite busy around these parts! But not nearly as busy as we will be the next few months- what with moving, decorating a new home and preparing for the arrival of Baby M the first week of August!

So that blog hiatus I was talking about? Consider it over.

    ReplyDelete
  35. so, i found that people don't mind when your blog turns into one of 'those' blogs....because, they love it. if they love you (which they do) they want to hear all about your life...and your protruding uterus...

    so soak it up. besides, you only have your 'first' once, right!? and each child deserves to be celebrated!

    congratulations! (althoug I've already said it!!)
