Big News: Remember when …

Remember when I didn’t post a blog for 2 whole weeks? Well… I have a confession to make. It was because I couldn’t stand the sight or smell of food and I hardly had the energy to get up in the morning let alone cook. And why is that?

I can finally tell you! We are expecting! I am 12 weeks pregnant and baby is due in late May. We are beyond excited and over the moon happy.

You should have seen me chasing Honey around the house with this sign. She was suppose to wear it around her neck. As you can tell, she wanted nothing to do with it.

Rest assured, this does not mean I’ll stop coming up with jello shot ideas, I just won’t be able to eat/drink them! I admit that I might talk about the changes in my life though and my interests may change. I already can’t wait to post things like pancakes shaped like little monkeys and other fun kiddo food.


Week 12: Baby is the size of a Plum

Average size: 2.1 inches, .49 oz.
Almost all vital systems are fully formed…

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain: 12 lbs (sigh)
Maternity clothes?  1 pair of AMAZING black work pants. Before I got these pants I just looked like I was getting fat, but these wonderful confortable pants show a teeny tiny little baby bump.
Stretch marks? Nope, bring on the coco butter
Sleep: I wake up to go to the bathroom 3-5 times through out the night. Not cool.
Best moment this week: Finally being able to share the news with my co-workers and friends!
Miss Anything? Tuna Sashimi
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: The tuna tartare I couldn’t have while out to dinner for a girls night in Baltimore :(
Anything making you queasy or sick: Breathing. Okay, okay, it’s starting to get a little better but I’m still sick at least once a day.
Have you started to show yet: Just a little bit.
Gender prediction: After we saw baby dance in our last sonogram we are thinking boy.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy, except around bed time when I really start feeling sick and achy. Husband has been a doll. He’s so helpful and tolerant. I am a lucky girl. 
Looking forward to: I can’t wait to start showing more! I think it’s going to be pretty darn cute.

    Congratulations. You sound so happy. Gotta tell you though, looooove the look on Honey’s face. Love that dog. My cravings were anchovies; couldn’t have had a worse one.
