12 weeks

It's both hilarious and amazing to me that God created it such that one human being grows another inside of her! So strange if you really stop to think about it! Sean has been incredible so far during this pregnancy -- putting up with my picky eating and making sure I'm comfortable. He has such a big servant's heart -- this baby and I will put it to the test, I'm sure. :) 
How far along: 12 weeks 
Size of baby: A plum - about 2 inches long :)
Gender: The doctor said she would try to look at 15 weeks
Maternity clothes: Not yet. I did try on some maternity clothes at gap yesterday, but it sort of weirded me out. It's still sometimes hard for me to believe I really am pregnant and really will need new pants soon. Luckily I own a lot of dresses and empire waist/oversized tops.
Weight gain: None yet.
Movement: Not yet.
Sleep: Sleeping well. I see some type of body pillow in the near future. I'm sleeping lighter than usual, which is probably good b/c I sleep like a rock normally and that is one of my biggest concerns once baby arrives (that I won't wake up and/or will be very cranky with lack of sleep)
Symptoms: I get tired more easily and sometimes have little cramps. Food aversions are still present, but I think my appetite is starting to pick up some.
Best moment this week: A tiny baby bump has appeared. Others probably don't readily notice it, but it's a fun reminder for me and has helped this pregnancy to feel more 'real' to me.


  1. Cute baby bump pic! No weight gain yet?! You're probably eating way healthier than did b/c I certainly had gained more than my fair share at that point! : ) You look wonderful and happy; so excited for you all!

    1. I wouldn't say I'm eating particularly healthy, I just get full really fast, so my portions are much smaller than normal. I turned down a cupcake the other day, which I don't think has ever happened in my life! :)

  2. pregnancy looks great on you! love seeing that baby bump signifying the miracle of life!!

  3. Congratulations, being a mom is the best thing ever!

  4. You look fantastic, Nicole! You have a super cute baby bump and I am so excited for you guys! Hang in there, my appetite and energy picked up right after the first trimester was over!
