Hello Second Trimester!

I made it to the second trimester! It's a big accomplishment for pregnant ladies everywhere. According to the blogs I read morning sickness should be going away. I should have more energy than ever. Oh and my boobs shouldn't hurt anymore. Well let me tell you the morning sickness has started to give up though I still have my bad days. My boobs don't hurt as bad but they are still a little tender. As long as I have a bra on I'm good. The tiredness on the other hand is still very present. On my days off of work I could take 1-2 naps a day and still feel tired. I still can't stay up past 10 and could sleep in until 9 or 9:30. Which if you know me you know that's late. 

According to the fruit chart baby is the size of a lemon. Even though if you looked at me it looks more like the size of cantaloupe. My wardrobe is now down to yoga pants and basketball shorts. Oh a dresses! They are my new best friend. I think it may be time to go shopping though. With the colder weather coming along I should by leggings or something. I'm sure Rob doesn't care but for date night I'd like to wear something other than yoga pants and an oversized t-shirt. 

Welcome to week 14
Oh and we purchased a mom mobile. Up until this weekend we've been carpooling to work. We never really had the need for a second car. I would drop Rob off at the train on my way to work and pick him up on my way home. Now we have a need for a second car and one with four doors. Our current car only has two. I'm not doing gymnastics to put the baby in the car. So insert my new car.

The new ride!
Pretty gansta for a mom. While at the dealership I overheard a teenager say that moms only drive vans and SUV's. Man did I prove her wrong!

Big Trips and Bigger News

So the last few months have been busy and exciting! First off my little sister is officially a New Yorker. She's off doing what she loves. We moved her in last week. I'm so jealous of where she lives. It's a cute little apartment in Greenwich Village. I fell in love with New York and if I ever hit the lotto I will move there.

Oh and did I mention I'm going to be a mom in April? That's right people! I am almost into my fourth month. I'd love to say " Wow! I feel great!" but that would be a flat out lie. If I'm not nauseous I'm tired. Apparently in a few weeks I am supposed to feel like a new person but I'll keep you posted.  Also I have exploded into full on preggo belly. This last week it just popped out. While in New York my step mom asked if I was sure there was just one in there. I told her last time I checked there was. 


At 6 weeks

At 11 weeks (sorry for the quality)
The best thing about being pregnant is seeing the baby at the ultrasounds. We just went yesterday and saw he/she swimming around and flapping its legs and arms. Talk about the cutest thing ever! We are super excited. So spread the word! The coolest kid is going to be born around April fools day.
