11 Weeks

How far along: 11 weeks
Maternity clothes:
I just bought some maternity skinny jeans with the belly panel, and I love comfy! I won't be able to wear a lot from my pregnancy with Evan since I'm pregnant during opposite seasons.
Best moment this week: Seeing a healthy (and active) little jelly bean bouncing around when I had my ultrasound done at the ER (everything is good, just had some horrible abdominal pain).
Food craving/aversions: I feel more picky about what I have a taste for, but nothing in particular. Every day seems different. Tend to lean towards more salty than sweet stuff (although I'd never turn down a cupcake!).
What I miss: Not one thing!!!
What I am looking forward to: My upcoming appointments during the first week of November. Get to see our baby again!
Milestones: Graduating from our fertility doctor to our OB, and getting to hear our baby's heartbeat with the doppler.
Symptoms: Still very tired, especially in the afternoon and again around 8pm. Still going to bed earlier than I did pre-pregnancy. Still having very mild (and short) waves of nausea but that's becoming less frequent. Boobs still tender off/on. Overall, I feel great and I can't complain!

Our family is growing!

I've neglected this board long enough, and I come with good news! I'm so very happy to announce I'm pregnant! Our sweet little miracle is due in Spring 2013, and we couldn't be happier. I honestly never thought we'd make it to this point. It's been quite a journey to get here! Evan is excited to be a big brother. It's so cute to hear him talk to my belly, talk about toys he's going to share with his sibling, etc. We feel so blessed!
