For ALL the pregnancy updates go HERE
Note: This post was written at week 17 of pregnancy. I should be caught up with real-life posting soon. Meaning you will see a few week updates within the same week as we catch up.
12 WEEKS!!! This is the milestone I have been looking forward to for a while. So I was totally wrong about something – for my whole life I thought at 12 weeks you start the 2nd trimester – so imagine my surprise when I found out it is 14 weeks. This turned into a LONG 2 week wait to reach 14. This week is all about getting ready to announce my pregnancy. It was a little nerve wracking because I had my last doctor’s appointment the week before – and I know they were okay but it is still nice to get the thumbs up from doctors. This is why I have been loving my at home doppler ( I do not use it much) – but I will tell you right before I set my pregnancy post public I did one last check.
Morning sickness is here to stay for a while. I have upped my water intake to 1 gallon per day which actually is not that difficult after a while – side note I am also going through tons of toilet paper. I also have been getting some wicked heartburn – but nothing else going on. The bump is growing as you can see in the photo below – I love to think I have two little plums inside of me. C’mon July can you get here soon?
