1st Trimester Recap

Can't believe that I'm in my second trimester! It just still blows my mind that I'm actually pregnant. lol. On top of the blessing of the pregnancy itself, I feel like the Lord doubly blessed me by giving me a really ideal first trimester. There was definitely fatigue the first few weeks, and I still takes naps a couple times a week. :) I have an aversion to meat and foods that I would consider rich or strong in flavor. I had a weird taste in my mouth and was burping at all times up until about week 11ish. But no vomiting or extreme nausea which I am so thankful for. Overall, I'm feeling great! The only notable cravings that I've had so far are Chick Fil A (the only meat I actually want), sushi (baked rolls only of course) and sour gummy candy. :)

We had our 3 month check up a couple weeks ago and unfortunately I didn't get a nice picture to share with you all. But baby actually looks like a baby now! He/She was wiggling around and had a nice strong heartbeat. My belly is starting to poof out a bit and I am officially in maternity jeans. I think that maternity jeans are amazing and I don't understand why all jeans can't come with a soft waistband. lol. I have only taken a few super casual belly shots, but I think I'm more willing to take them now that it looks like a little more than just chub around my waist. ;)

I am 14 weeks as of yesterday. We have an ultrasound appointment to find out the gender this Friday. eeeeeek!

9 weeks - I couldn't bring myself to take a belly shot until we had seen the heartbeat. :)
11 weeks - trying on maternity jeans!
13 weeks - start of 2nd trimester. :)


  1. I Am OVER THE MOON Excited For You, Ryan, And Big Brother Elias!! Can't Wait To See Ultra Sound Pics!! Hoping You Have A Girl...But I Have A Feeling This One Is Also A Boy!! :) But I Will Pray For Healthy And Happy Above All!! :)

  2. So happy for you!!!! What an incredible thing and the joy is just palpable! !

  3. Congrats!! I had that nasty taste in my mouth with both pregnancies and it came back in the 3rd trimester both times. It made me really nauseous. I finally found something to help; gargling baking soda and water! It made an enormous difference. After doing that twice a day for 3-4 days the taste was gone

  4. So excited for you and family,you looks so happy!! What a blessing!

  5. stumbled upon your blog just now. congrats! your baby bump looks so beautiful... ;) can't wait for mine...

  6. You should adopt another looking for a good home.

  7. I found your blog when I was searching for photos of an IKEA crib and then browsed through just about every post since that one. I was blown away by how inspirational and positive your posts are. While definitely not going through near as much as you and your husband have gone through, my husband and I also suffered two losses and now are 19 weeks pregnant with a precious baby boy. Just followed you on IG and excited about your story. Prayers and best wishes (also the only time I've written a comment on a strangers blog)!
