Long time no post...

Okay, pregnancy is great but it has wiped me out. I am 14 weeks this Saturday and looking forward to possibly having some more energy soon. I have so much to do and no energy to do it with. I know this is preparing me for when the baby comes but I have stuff to do before he/she gets here. Loads of stuff!
The belly is expanding and getting round, I heard the heartbeat again this week on Wednesday and it is definitely getting slower since the baby is getting bigger. I have long since gone ahead and taken the advice of a friend to switch to maternity pants and oh, they are so much better! We find out the gender of the baby on December 10th if it is cooperative, but I love seeing the ultrasounds, it is so neat and makes it feel more real. It is still surreal to me about being pregnant, even though I can obviously see the belly sticking out now. I have really started feeling better, no more nausea; except the occasional fight in the morning with my toothbrush still. (I even switched to a childs toothbrush so there is less to gag me with) Nate just keeps talking to my belly and patting it. The dog hasn't figured out yet that she cannot just jump right up on me onto the couch without getting in trouble, she plops right onto my stomach. As far as cravings, not really having any. I am just trying to find quick and easy and somewhat healthy things to make for dinner. I hate eating out of the freezer with processed meals but they are really easy. We have been busy each weekend so I don't get the chance then for meal prep like I normally would for that next week.
This weekend again is going to be busy. My Mom & Dad are both coming up and Dad & Nate are going to tile the new countertop in the bathroom. It will be great when it is done. Nate is still nesting and getting things organized which is TOTALLY unlike him! It is cute and really nice to have the projects completed. He is a great husband and will make a great Daddy too! We are both looking forward to feeling the baby and seeing it move, I think it will make it more real for him too.
Well that's the update for now, nothing really exiting other than the ultrasound coming up on December 10th.

Yeah! I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better...and your energy will return soon. Just in time for another zap in the 3rd trimester because it will seem like the baby has run out of room! That's me currently...feeling like each kick is going to "pop" my belly=) Can't wait to hear what you're having!!! I'm so excited for you guys. Thanks for the update!

You'll get your energy back in the second trimester. At least, I hope and pray you will....I always did. I'm still over the moon about your pregnancy, so darn happy for you and Nate. Love you, and thanks for the udpates.
