Pregnancy Update

Whoa, this pregnancy has knocked me on my butt! I actually haven't been as sick as I was with Luke (he was all day, everyday), but I'm way more exhausted and evenings have been horrible. The car accident at the beginning probably didn't help much. I don't have much of an appetite and nearly everything in the kitchen made me gag. Much like Luke, I haven't been able to eat chicken at all. I'm loving red meat though. Bring on the steak!

I've had a few appts since the announcement post and everything is looking great! We've also been able to hear the little bean's heartbeat on our doppler here at home so that has been nice.

I'm down 2 lbs, but am definitely getting rounder. It's that fun stage of several of my normal pants being too tight (especially at the end of the day) and maternity pants still being too big. I'm loving dresses right now.

Luke likes to talk about the baby and knows that the ultrasound pictures are pics of the baby. He came up to me the other day and lifted my shirt up and told me to "open it up" because he wanted to see the baby. Oh buddy, we have some time.

I'm just over 11 weeks now and have another appt this coming week. This appt and the next one will just be basic ones to check and see how everything is going. Our next actual ultrasound (and yes, we'll be finding out if we're having a boy or girl!) will be on September 4th.

This is me at 4+ weeks and then again at 9+ weeks.

And then a comparison of me pregnant with Luke at 9+ weeks. 7lbs lighter now than with Luke, but definitely rounder. :)
