12 weeks

I was 12 weeks pregnant yesterday & even though I know I won't be meticulous about weekly bump pics this pregnancy, I do want to make sure I take them from time to time.

I'm showing much earlier this pregnancy than I did with Liam-- I regularly make the joke that I never really stopped showing. Over the past two weeks or so, I've seen a noticeable shift in the shape of my body & I can tell the baby belly's coming. See for yourself:

These pics were taken at night, so I'm a bit bigger than I typically am when I first wake up, thanks to the 1st tri pregnancy bloat. But it's there, and pretty comparable to where I was around 17 weeks with Liam. No weight gain, thank goodness, just belly.

Excited that our NT Scan is less than a week away, but even more excited that one of my college BFFs is coming tomorrow. We haven't seen each other in 2 1/2 years & once I get my arms around her, I may never let her go! She's never seen our house or met Liam so I hope to pack as much quality time into her 24 hour visit (Boo! Wish she could stay longer!) as possible. I'm really grateful that I've started feeling better (bye-bye morning sickness, for the most part!) so that we can really enjoy our time together. Will try to post pics after the visit!


  1. Wow, look at that baby bump! I didn't have that until about 20 weeks with my daughter. I'm so excited for you. I've been posting on my mom's listserv about trying for number 2 and everyone who had babies really close together like you are say it's great and they play together and they really love it. I'm so nervous to start trying for number 2. I need to put on my big girl pants and just do it.


  2. ADORABLE BUMP!!! Lookin' great.

    Have a fab time with your friend :) Friends like that can do wonders to lift your spirits about, well, everything. Enjoy.
