12 Weeks, and Running Around the Country

Hi ladies!

So sorry for my lack of posts and comments lately. I forgot how time consuming WORK is. Sheesh. I wish my boss understood my need for blogging time! πŸ™‚ I’ve been busy working at the restaurants and now we’re out of town Wed-Mon. My husband’s cousin is getting married in STL, so it’s a long family weekend for us. I’m excited to get out of town for a bit for sure, and INSANELY excited to get to see Bradshaw again!

How far along? 12 weeks!
Size of baby? 2.4″ – holy cow

Total Weight Gain? 2.2#, up to 163.2#
Maternity clothes? I brought a few maternity dresses to STL for the vacation wedding weekend we’re on – lovin it so far!
Sleep? Insonmia sucks. I only have to pee once/night at this point at least.
Best moment this week? Feeling good enough to be productive and work!
Food cravings? Summer Sausage and cheese, any sort of pasta with or without cheese πŸ™‚ 

What I miss? I’m sure I’ll miss drinking at the wedding this weekend, but I’m excited too!
What I’m looking forward to? Having my belly look more like a bump, less like a beer gut. Haha. At least it’s getting firm now.
Weekly Wisdom: Be prepared for the news to FLY once you decide to tell a few people about the pregnancy. Wow. The church I work at (which is not the one I attend) is a prime example. I barely know most of the people that attend here, and I’ve already received multiple emails from ladies telling me (1) congrats, and (2) how they’ve been praying for me. Kind of freaks me out a bit, but it makes me feel good too. πŸ™‚
Milestones: End of the first trimester! 
Emotions: Excited. Tired. Excited. Tired.
Symptoms: Headaches that come and go. Nausea – especially in evenings. Insomnia. All manageable. πŸ™‚  



I promise I’ll get some non-pregnancy related updates here soon. Thank you so much for all of the prayers and well-wishes you have sent my way!!
