Our little family is growing!
I am, without a doubt, knocked up
and expecting our first little munchkin in early December!
Check out that noggin!
This is no surprise (sigh).. both of us have larger than "0ne-size-fits-most" heads.
We are over the moon excited and thrilled to finally be able to share the big news. We had our 12 week appointment yesterday, which means my first trimester finish line is in site!
It's been both a long and quick 3 months for me (contradiction, much?)... I haven't been feeling great and have had the energy level of a elephant after a sit-down buffet: ZERO. However, with so much going on, time has flown by and I can hardly believe we're nearly a third of the way to meeting our lil baby. :)
The obligatory bump watch:
I was happy to learn that I have not gained any weight yet- though my special friend "bloat" comes and goes like a clingy ex-boyfriend. (Last week you could swear I was in my 5th month). I definitely have more going on in front, but at least today wasn't too bad for the photo session.
It cracks me up how all the pregnancy books compare your growing baby to various fruit. This week she/he is the size of a lime! (I'll never look at a margarita the same again!)
At our appointment yesterday, our doc noted that the lil bugger was just laying there at the bottom of my uterus like she/he was chillin' in a hammock.
Since I am a total dork, I put this together for your visualizing pleasure:
Hubby thinks the baby is like me- always looking to lay down and nap.
I would just like him/her to pick a new spot to settle in- right on top of my bladder is not going to fly for another 6 months!
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.
