12 weeks

I had my 12 week appointment last Wednesday. It is so amazing to me how fast time is flying by! I feel like we just found out we were pregnant! The appointment went really well and the baby is doing good, which is all that we can ask for.
The worst part of the appointment was that they had to draw my blood for the THIRD time! I warned the nurse the first time that my blood clumps and she assured me that it was the result of technician error. Well I think she had to eat her words...twice! I haven't heard back about this last draw yet, but I hope that all is well. If not I will most likely be sent to a hematologist (which is not something I look forward to), so cross your fingers for me.

This week was also full of exciting surprises (ok, well maybe just one)! I am feeling oh, so much better! I have not been nauseous since Wednesday (and that was very mild) and it is awesome!! I feel like I have been waiting for this day forever. Now I just feel like I eat ALL the time! But I much prefer that to being sick.
The best part of not being sick is that I cleaned!! It had seriously been like 6 weeks since I had felt well enough to clean and the house was really starting to show it! Yay for a clean house and a fridge that doesn't make me sick when I open it!
I am also enjoying my new internal alarm clock...waking up at 6:00 am no matter when I go to bed is tons of fun...oh the joys....

Mandy asked me the other day if I was starting to get a baby bump yet and this is what I told her "I can tell that it's there, but I really just look fat!" I had Eric take a picture of me, but I just can't get myself to post it because I look so horrible in it (sorry Jen)! Maybe in a few weeks I'll look pregnant and not fat!


  1. I love that you write your blog for me. (I guess other can enjoy it too.) Yes I would like to see a picture of you, but I can understand why you are not ready to post it. Yeah for you feeling better! Oh, I can't remember if I told you but I am coming to Seattle on the 18th and staying until the 27th! I am totally planning for us to hang out and maybe to some baby shopping!!! Love ya

  2. SO GLAD you're feeling better!! First trimester is no fun! It really does get better. I also, however have the same internal body clock. It's handy on the weekdays, but a huge pain on the weekends. I did manage to sleep in to 9am the other day though, which was much needed. Can't wait to see you guys!

  3. Yay Jen! I am so excited to see you! I think we will definitely have to do some baby shopping (or at the very least maternity clothes shopping!)

    Courtney, I can't wait to see you guys too! It's been forever! I actually enjoyed getting up at 6:00 this past Saturday because I was able to clean the fridge! Sad, huh!

  4. I love you so much, Cara! This baby is so, so lucky to have you as a mom. I hope that it realizes it... :) I think it will fairly quickly. I know how it feels to be taken care of by Cara, so I think that the baby has such a great adventure ahead of them! Have I mentioned that I love you? I love that I got a mention in your blog, btw!
