14 Weeks

I do not have much of an update from my last blog, but I thought I would at least mention we are officially over the first trimester. Whoop! Unfortunately, I welcomed the new trimester with a morning full of vomiting at work. It was quite miserable, but my fault. I think it was the big doughnut I ate at the beginning of the shift... sweets just sound so good but they do me wrong in the end.

I sported Aggie maroon all weekend starting with this tight shirt that I originally thought I might wear to the game and immediately thought heck no once I put it on. I did however think it was a good belly showing - one picture for blog, shirt. Speaking of the Aggies, I am not going to talk about that awfully disappointing game on Saturday, but I will mention I am excited they have announced they will be officially joining the SEC.

A couple other things I am excited about:
1.) Our fall calendar of events starting with our trip to Punta Cana with the Snider's at the end of October, finding out the sex of our baby November 1st, celebrating Forrest's 30th on the 5th, my Sis coming home in mid- November, and not to mention all the goodness that comes with every fall season for us like more Aggie football, the annual Scarecrow Festival, baking and spiced lattes, shopping, pumpkin patches and harvest decorating.
2.) This weather... hopefully it just continues to get better and better. I could be outside all day long even now and it is still in the 90's.
3.) Coming across cute baby things such as these two items I saw in PB catalog. I have loved this chair for awhile... I think it is one of their best sellers. I am just such a sucker for neutrals. Even once we know the gender, I think I will still want neutrals.

Anyways, that is the latest. I have appointment on Tuesday with my doctor. Thoughts and prayers appreciated that things continue to look great.

Today I am 12 weeks

Which means in two weeks I will be over the first trimester! I really have no complaints at all about how I have felt over the last several weeks and would say I have had a fairly easy pregnancy thus far. I do still take zofran but usually only need half the dose about once a day. It is very effective and I have not felt sick at all really since taking it. I feel tired sometimes but considering I work nights, fatigue really isn't an issue. I do not realize when I am being emotional or feisty but Forrest, in a very sensitive way of course, has told me he has noticed. 

Food is a strange thing. I guess you could say I have some food cravings and aversions...something either sounds good or it doesn't sound good at all. Usually things that sounds good are fruits, sweets, breads, and cereals. But then again these were all some of my favorite things before being pregnant. Two things I used to love and eat/drink almost on a daily basis were dark chocolate covered raisins and Starbucks coffees. Proof that pregnancy changes your appetite are that I have not been in the mood for either of these things one bit. I used to buy two bags of the raisins that would last me/us one week and as stingy as I was with them every night after dinner, Forrest cannot believe that my addiction has just suddenly disappeared. Coffee used to be one of my favorite things and again, I just have not been up for it. Nope, not even a Starbucks unfortunately. I am hoping my love for them will come back, considering all the fun holiday drinks are coming out. 

As you can see in the picture, I do have a little belly. Pants are a little snug and tight fitting shirts are not really an option. This picture is only descent because you know I am pregnant; however walking around in public I just look like I have a gut. With that said, until I can pull off the pregnant look, looks like it will be baggy clothes only for now!

Anyways, that is an update on me. I will blog soon about my next appointment which is set for Sept. 27th. I will be at 14 weeks by then....definitely something to celebrate. :)
