Pregnancy Update : Weeks 12 - 13

We are getting ready to round out our 14th week! Pretty exciting, and still hard to believe we're still pregnant. I am so ready for this morning sickness to leave. Luckily it's mostly in the mornings only. Other than that I've been having a bit of sciatica pains that are uncomfortable but haven't caused much trouble yet.

sorry these photos are so bad. My nice camera was dead.

Pregnancy Update : Weeks 5 - 11

This has been the absolute hardest secret to keep! We found out we were pregnant extremely early on, like at 4 weeks. We knew we wanted to keep quiet about it until the second trimester. With our history of losses (you can read about it here, here,here) every day seemed like an uphill battle. But every day we made it through was such a victory. When we made it to 6 weeks I let out a small sigh or relief. When 10 weeks came and went I let myself feel a little bit of happiness. By the time our 12th week was coming to an end we could finally let ourselves be happy. We had made it past the worst.

During our first pregnancy I decided to take weekly photos and jot down a few memories and milestones. I had planned on doing it this time around as well. But wouldn't you know it, I've had the absolute worst morning sickness. It started at 6 weeks and has just recently started to let up. So, I had high hopes for the weekly photos, and then failed miserably. But, that's okay, our baby is still safe and sound right where it should be.

Week 5
went to first doctors appointment
started taking prenatal vitamins
stopped caffeine
told a few co-workers and bosses
craving Frank's Red Hot

Week 6
small bump
started using "belly band"
nausea set in
had small scare
first ultrasound
heard heartbeat
started taking Progesterone

Week 7
nausea everyday
extremely tired
missing work

Week 9
had doctors appointment
told Jordan's parents
nausea is letting up (or so I thought)
had family portraits

Week 10
nausea is still there
bump has gotten bigger

So there you have it! I'm starting to feel a little bit better (she says right after a barf fest) so I hope I can actually keep up with the weekly photos. We're starting to get bigger around here :)

Summer Hibernation and a Chalkboard Calendar Wall

Oh boy. It's the first day of October. I haven't seriously (not that I ever really seriously blogged) blogged since the middle of July. I threw in a few random family posts every once in a while. But I even failed in that! I forgot to do an anniversary post, and we also have a new cat. So, I might catch you up on all of that. In the meantime, I finally got around to completing the project I mentioned back in July. That's right, I finally finished the chalkboard calendar wall.

We placed it on the wall past the stairs, right before the closet and hall bath. Here is a good before of the wall.

and after

I'm really glad this project is finally complete. It's embarrassing how long it took. Those blue painters tape lines have been haunting my dreams! Believe it or not, there are a few other things I'm working on. I hope to start blogging at least once a week. Pretty lame, but a good start. :) :)
