Belly Updates.

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".
 feeling pretty good about myself still.
feeling bloated - all i can keep down is cheese quesadillas and fruit.
 1st week of spring - feeling cute. starting to eat veggies again.
 starting to see a minor change in my stomach, dealing with major panic attacks about it.
feeling good (a little more energy). my sweet husband bought me this amazing 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!!!
