In typical me fashion, I’m late! We were a day late taking our 12 week picture and 4 days late posting about 12 weeks! Better late than never, right?
And surprise! I cut my hair off!! I cut off about 13 inches that I’m donating to locks of love! I’m loving my new hair cut especially during the summertime!
Here is the belly at 12 weeks 1 day! There really isn’t anything to see and this larger shirt would hide a bump if it did exist! I started this pregnancy weighing about 20 pounds less than I started Paxton’s pregnancy and about 7 pounds lighter than I was at my lowest point while I was so sick with morning sickness with him so I am definitely smaller this go round. (And I’m hoping that means I stay smaller and don’t weigh more than my hubby at the end of the pregnancy…it was just 1 pound, but still!)
I am exactly 12 weeks 1 day here too! You can see that there was a little bump starting to form here! (I’m quite excited about comparing my growth this time with the pictures from last time!) (I also think I look much younger…not that I look old now! I think it’s the hair…)
I’m beginning to feel almost normal. My appetite is just about completely back, I’ve meal planned and thinking about meal planning and cooking doesn’t make me feel nauseous!! Yay! I am still extremely tired and finding I can’t stay up past 10:30 or so and need a nap or a time of rest during the day. I feel bad that I’m not able to be as active as I would like with Paxton but I’m hoping once I hit the 2nd trimester I’ll get some energy back.
I lie in bed almost every night and every morning hoping I can feel the baby! Nothing yet but I’m expecting to feel some motion sometime in the next few weeks since it is my second pregnancy!! I cannot wait to begin feeling those little flutters!
With this pregnancy I want to document my growing belly and baby as well as the growing big brother! I know 7 months is going to make a world of difference in this little guy so we’re going to snap a picture together each week too!! (I’m sure it will begin getting tricky holding a heavier and heavier toddler over a bigger and bigger belly but we’ll manage!)
Seriously, I’m thrilled about this new little baby and can’t wait to have another sweet newborn to love on (and just thinking about that makes me feel like my heart might just explode!) But, with all that being said, I’m so excited that Paxton is going to have a sibling!! I can just picture the two of them interacting this time next year (the new little one will be almost 6 months then and should be quite active and interactive!!)
