12 Weeks

I think it's about time I start writing about this pregnancy! Today I am 12 weeks pregnant and as slow as I feel like it's going by, I kind of can't believe the 12 week mark is here already. 

I haven't blogged yet because I felt like all of my posts would have been a little complain-y. The first trimester was just as I read it would be like; filled with fatigue, morning sickness, and more fatigue. I did a lot of sleeping and feeling bad for myself but it wasn't all bad! 

First of all we found out we were having a baby in NYC on New Year's Eve so that was amazing!

We also got our first ultrasound at just about 9 weeks and it was one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had. The baby was so little but you could see him/ her moving around and the little heart beating. It still amazes me to think there is a living human being inside of me! God's creation truly is such a blessing. 

Recently, I have been feeling much better and I am so looking forward to all the things the second trimester will hold; baby's first kicks, actually looking pregnant, finding out the sex. It's such an exciting time. 

Here's an update of this past week:
  • Total weight gained:  I think one pound. 
  • Current food craving:  I am currently obsessed with salty chips!
  • Workouts:  One. Depressing I know. 
  • Food Aversions:  I haven't liked the idea of cooked vegetables for a while now. 
  • Baby Items Purchased:  None.
  • Goal for Next Week: 100 squats a day and cardio at least 3 times! 
Oh ya and here what I look like: aka almost exactly the same lol

 At this point in my pregnancy, I'm pretty sure anyone who saw me and didn't know I was pregnant would just think I got fat! haha. Come on real baby bump! I'm ready for you!

Next week at this time I will officially be out of the first trimester! Woo hoo! Until next time :)
