12 Weeks: Officially Out

These posts focus specifically on this pregnancy. If you're not in a good place, please feel free to pass. Take care of you!

Little K came home and she brought this little guy with her!


Here we are! The last week, theoretically, of the first trimester. Work is nuts this week, so I think we're looking at some quick bullet points:
  • Gotta say it again: I'm down 5 pounds! Wooooo!!
A brief note on the above: Thank you, again, for your concern and support in creating an eating plan for this pregnancy. The midwife I saw last week stated that they only want me to gain 20 pounds with this pregnancy. Apparently, even at only 5 pounds heavier than I was when Little K was conceived, my starting BMI was officially on the overweight scale. Grr!!!
  • I am thrilled to say that my stomach and burping have finally settled down. Woot! 
  • We have settled on names for a boy and a girl. Fun!
  • Little K now knows about the baby and is mostly excited. Phew!
  • Little K has also been telling the other adults in her life (teacher, Sunday school teacher, neighbors) about the baby. Guess we're official!
Speaking of official, I'm doing the prep work to go live on Facebook. I know what a sensitive subject this is and want to be sure we handle it with grace. The image below will be posted with the following caption:
