12 Weeks!



How far along: 12 weeks...and some days!

Size of baby: A plum!

Baby weight: 3-4lbs.

Showing?: A little bit! My abs have definitely disappeared!

Maternity Clothes: Not yet...

Stretch marks: Nada, but my booty is definitely a little saggier...

Movement: Too little to tell, but according to the first ultrasound (9 weeks), little one was wiggling, but not like his/her brother at the same time!

Gender: No idea...

Belly button in/out: In!

Morning sickness: Starting to subside, but the evenings are still pretty miserable! Heart burn is worse this time around as well.

Cravings: I definitely wanted full fat foods the first couple months, but that has begun to taper off! Food has been harder this go round as it really has grossed me out! Still having a hard time with meats and vegetables so my diet has mainly consisted of apples, cereal, toast, yogurt, cottage cheese, and of course sweets!

Exercise: Luckily Baby Varn #2 likes exercise and its been my saving grace! Still enjoy short runs and walking. Weights...need to get back in the habit, but the couch is just so comfortable during nap time!

Energy: Comes and goes- each day is different and really depends on how much sleep D let's me get!

What I miss: Having the energy to play all day with my main little man and clean the house in record speed...it takes all week to get this little place tip top!

What I won't miss: The added poundage...my knees are already starting to feel the effects of baby weight. I also won't miss the energy zap, I think that's the worst this go round!

What I'm looking forward to: Movement!! It is definitely one of my favorite parts about pregnancy. I am really excited to get to share that with Daven this time too! I can't wait to see his little expression the first time he feels his brother/sister kicking my tummy...I have a feeling he may be a little freaked out!

Best Moment: Making it through the first trimester and seeing our little nugget for the first time. To know there is a healthy little baby growing inside you is quite amazing...they really are little miracles!

Phone dump Monday

Happy, happy Monday! Well at least in my book! After a sickly and sleepless weekend, I think lil one is feeling better! Enjoy the very few pictures we took!

This is happening....

It's like Christmas! We are FINALLY painting our peeling house!!! Although not initially planned for this month, (Nate pressure washed the garage...really bad idea on my part!) we are moving forward and just doing it since 1) we have the monies saved for it and 2) Nate's tired of me complaining about it!

To say I'm excited is an understatement...I'm ecstatic!! Now for the yard...

NV2 + D +...

As mentioned in the most recent post, there is a REALLY good reason for why we've been M.I.A. in the blogosphere lately. If you haven't already guessed or been told, this little family of three is adding a new member!

Baby Varn #2 will be making his or her debut early November and we are nothing short of ecstatic! Daven...he might have other thoughts on gaining a sibling, but we know once the munchkin is here he will be a GREAT big brother!


Unlike our Prince, this lil nugget has given me a run for my money these first couple of months...all day sickness (a man definitely coined the phrase "morning-sickness" because that stuff lasts all.day.long!), exhaustion, and food aversion out the wazoo! Thus, wanting to blog was the LAST thing on my list of things to do! The first trimester woes are starting to subside and D is getting his mommy back (playing with a toddler while on the verge of feeling sick is not so fun!).

Pretty terrible picture...but there's Grady!

Monday photo dump...

So sorry for the LONG overdue absence....we will get to that later! Since most of you enjoy the picture portion more than anything else (I mean the kids pretty cute...it's my favorite part too!), I've decided to start "phone dump Monday" and share with you a handful of adorable D pictures from our prior week!
