Since the news yesterday I have been overwhelmed with sweet congratulations here, on instagram and facebook. We cannot thank you all enough for the love and support; it means the world!!! So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I am going to overload you all with pregnancy belly pictures and updates on how I am feeling now.
I have pictures from 8-12 weeks right now and will post a 13 week update tomorrow!
I feel huge - but I guess that is just the first trimester "growing pains".
Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote for our first baby growing and my pregnancy. He melts my heart.
I will start the weekly updates tomorrow as the first trimester just kinda took the wind out of me. I am absolutly certain I was never more tired in my life than the first 12 weeks of this pregnancy. I would sleep ALL.THE.TIME. You know that amazing dresser B built? Yea that one. Well, I slept through the whole process. We would get home from work and he would go upstairs and build and I would go to the basement curl up with a blanket and fall asleep for at least 2 hours. Then get up, barely eat anything and go to bed. I am pretty sure I was the best to hang out with at that time...for real.
I also could not eat any of the foods I regularly eat. Vegetables - yea YUCK. I couldn't keep them down. And meat - meat was tough. I basically lived off fruit, that was the only thing I seemed to crave. At 13 weeks I am just starting to come back to normal, taste bud wise.
My first real craving came in the gummy bear form. Anything gummy seems to be pretty appealing to me. I also have been wanting french fries too. But B has been helping me with sticking to fruit rather than indulging in the french fries. But seriously this girl wants some fries. Help a sister out will ya? FRENCH FRIES!!!!
And I just started working out again - I am shooting for 3-4 times a week. I was on strict orders to lay off my usual weight training and stick with walking and yoga. But I have been cleared - so back to it I go! I had 2 workouts since my doctor cleared me and I am feeling MUCH better already. Of course I have to take it slower and decrease my weights but it feels good to be back.
First trimester almost over! I can't wait for that influx of energy - come on 2nd trimester bliss!!!
Linking up here today!
