Week 8

Well, I am officially 8 weeks along and some days it feels like we just found out and others like we have known for a long time.

We were lucky enough to have another ultrasound yesterday and it was pure bliss. Let me just say the time it takes the doctor to take all the appropriate measures feels like an eternity, he was so quiet and then he turned the screen and we saw this squirmy little precious thing. He said everything looks perfect and is where it should be and the heartbeat was a strong and beautiful 175bpm. We are looking at an estimated due date of August 24th!

We are just thrilled!



I figured I would finally share a belly pic, please excuse the horrendous post shower face and hair lol. This little one is certainly making their presence known, for the first few hours of every morning I am down for the count. I have to eat crackers before I can even get out of bed. Usually once 11am hits I feel pretty good and get some stuff done. 

I have a few food aversions, anything with a red pasta sauce is not happening and most ice creams aren't agreeing with me. However, french fries, mashed potatoes, popcorn, and fruit popsicles are pure joy haha.

I can no longer fit into my jeans, I used the belly band a few times but it's so uncomfortable that I opt for yoga pants or maxi dresses. I know right now most of it is bloating but there is certainly a bump. :) Kyle is still picking up a lot of slack when it comes to cooking and cleaning, it has been amazing.


I go back in 4 weeks for my 12 week appointment and I know it's going to be just as exciting as the appointment yesterday. :)

Happy Thursday everyone!!

  8. Look at your little belly!! So sweet! My sister could only eat white foods in her first trimester - potatoes, rice, etc. Otherwise, she was terribly ill. I always felt so bad for her

  10. So exciting! It's crazy how our bodies differ so much from one another during pregnancy! I was bloated, but didn't really get a little pooch until 12 weeks. The bellyband can definitely be annoying, but I'm still sporting it with jeans...although I did buy some maternity jeans the other day and they're actually cute and fit well! I still can't really do red sauce either and I usually love ice cream but it still doesn't sound appealing at all! Perhaps you're having a little girl, too?! ;)
