belly picture # 1

Where did the month go? I just read that the date of my last post was November 3rd. Crazy!

Here's my first belly picture for baby # 3. I can't believe I'm showing this much already. My belly actually started popping around 7 or 8 weeks (although it helps that I had some leftovers from Jaxon that came with it ;o)

Here I am at 11 weeks.

This pregnancy seems to be different from both of my last pregnancies. The other two were pretty predictable about what time in the day I would start feeling nauseous and for how long - and what kinds of foods I liked/disliked. This time my nausea is very unpredictable - and thankfully not all that bad, especially compared to what some women experience! And food-wise, it seems like it depends on the day what I crave or gag over. Surprisingly - I do have an increased desire for pickles :)

I would say my biggest struggle this trimester has been fatigue. Usually I can make it till 5pm and then it takes all I have to be able to clean up supper, get Jax ready for bed, and tidy the house. Often I'm in bed by 9:30. So I'm hoping that my energy returns sometime soon. At the same time though I'm thankful that I don't have it worse.

    Awww, cute baby belly! :) That is a lot faster to be showing, but I hear that it gets faster with each kid. It's so cute though! :)

    I'm glad you're feeling ok, even though dealing with morning sickness. I'm so excited for you. :)

  2. I remember with my first pregnancy how tired I was! My husband figured all I did was work, eat and sleep! If I had any spare time, it was spent napping, lol. Glad to hear things are going well :)

  3. You look super cute! :) And yeah...the belly totally gets bigger with every pregnancy - I noticed it for sure with #2 and now with #3 too! Only a few more weeks until you hit the 2nd trimester though!! :) My tiredness went away a lot then...thankfully! It's hard to look after kids, keep house, make food, etc. etc. etc. when you're soooo tired. But anyways, I'm glad that things are going well otherwise!! :)

  4. Ha! Leftovers. That's such a great name for that. You look wonderful though. I hope you get some energy again soon. That's rough...I remember when I was pregnant with Libby and trying to get things done and be a good mom to Liam.

  5. Laura - you look AWESOME and your belly is so cute! Seriously, I think you look GREAT! It was fun reading your post :) love ya

  6. You look so cute Laura... Congratulations to you and your hubby! I am praying you are filled with energy soon. Have a wonderful Christmas. Praying for that precious little one being knit together in your womb:)
