Because I know all too well how these kinds of posts may affect my fellow #ttcsisters and #ttcbrothers, especially those experiencing loss, I include this disclaimer to forewarn you. I understand how much these posts can sting and promise to continue to add the disclaimer on any post that may be related to this pregnancy (assuming viability) so that you may have the option to bow out of reading. I understand and I am still praying for all of you.
Today was supposed to be our first obstetrician appointment for this little one. Unfortunately, I was almost there when I realized I left my wallet at home with my insurance cards and identification. I called the office and we realized that I would not have time to do all I needed to do, so we had to rescheduled for tomorrow. Sadness. But that’s okay. I’ll be 12 weeks tomorrow and I’m interested in seeing how things have progressed.
the size of a fig (Incidentally, I am not a fan of figs).
Monday, the schools and offices were all closed in observance of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day. We took advantage of the time to watch his bio for the older kids and spend some time together as a family. Other than that, it has been kind of quiet, but quiet is good.
The nausea remains. At 11 weeks and 2 days, I was barely functioning with how badly I felt. Hopefully, things will get much better.
Very little beyond walking throughout my office and climbing stairs. I know. I need to do better and hopefully it will help me feel better if an when I do.
I’m always so sleepy, but alas I’m not getting much rest. Baby A. is going through a growth spurt so she has been waking at odd hours to ask for something to eat. Then, I’ve been getting up at 12 and 3 am to go to the bathroom. so, yeah. Not quite as much sleep as I would like.
Not yet, but I did have to let the zipper down on one of the pair of pants. I was just not having the room I needed.
The old ones from my previous pregnancies.
Yes. The Subway craving remains. I want a turkey and provolone cheese sub on toasted Honey Oat bread with vinegar, salt and pepper, oil, lettuce, and honey mustard. But I won’t get it because I’m being cautious of deli meat….UGH.
Chicken and tuna fish…Eww
So, I am almost certain these are flutters. I don’t care what anyone says. I recognize these.

Having to pull the car over after choir rehearsal to throw up. Morning sickness my butt.
