12 weeks

I went to the doctor on Thursday and heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time. Yes we saw the teeny tiny blob of a baby on the ultrasound but hearing the heartbeat for me is what really makes it feel real. They did a ton of blood work the next day to do routine testing. I had the option to do it the same day as my appointment or the next day. I hate needles SO of course I opted to wait a day.

I thought my morning sickness was gone. I was wrong. I went a whole week eating everything I wanted with no problem. Yesterday I started feeling crummy again. I plan on just napping a lot today. It's rainy and gloomy outside plus you can't feel yucky if you're asleep.

I cry a lot. A lot more than I cried with Noah. I cry probably ever night. Always over something dumb.

I'm mean. I know I'm being ridiculous but somehow I can't stop the words from coming out of my mouth. Joey has been amazing at dealing with the new and weird me. CRAP! I think I might cry now thinking about how nice he's been when I've been so awful....   He does the laundry. He does the dishes. He makes sure Noah takes a bath and gets in bed. All while I lay on the couch and try to feel a little better.

Noah likes to touch my tummy and say he can feel the baby. I don't have the heart to tell him that no...that is just fat.

When I was pregnant with Noah my nose was always in a baby book of some kind. This time around I think I've picked up my What to Expect book maybe twice. It's not that I don't care. I've just done this before and I really don't have that many questions. I also wanted things to rush by with Noah. I couldn't wait for the next milestone and then the next. Now I'm more relaxed about everything. Everything will happen when it happens.


  1. The 2nd pregnancy was way relaxed for me too! It was actually nice to know that to expect, it helped boost my confidence a bit, knowing that I had more tools this time around!

  2. I'm very behind, but congrats on hitting 12 weeks! That really sucks that you felt more morning sickness. I hope that passes for you soon. The crying seems totally normal. I already cry a lot, I think it's a hormonal girl thing... I can't imagine while being pregnant! It sounds like overall you're handling everything great though. Plus BABIES! YAY!
