Weeks 12 & 13

Life hasn't slowed down too much yet. My mom is home from Hawaii though!! Whoo hoo! She honestly looks great and by now it's hard to tell anything happen. Her case file is pretty scary though. But it looks like there isn't any permanent damage and the doctors told her she'd be completely normal in 6 months (she's shooting for 3).

Well, we have a date for the big reveal and I'm so excited for it!! My doctor nicely made sure it was before Christmas because she knew we'd want to tell people over the holidays. It's actually at 18 weeks so a few weeks earlier than I was planning.We're planning on doing a "gender reveal" party but keeping it pretty low-key. It falls on a big rivalry game day for the state we live in so we'll just combine it with a watch party!

I've been feeling pretty good and don't get sick as often. I am starting to consider getting some maternity clothes. I don't need them in the morning but by the end of the day, I feel like my stomach has grown twice its size. Multiple days require a rubber band trick on my pants :) But... good news... my mom is taking me shopping for my birthday now that her stamina is back. Yay! Still craving Mexican food and I've started wanting ham sandwiches (heated to steaming hot, of course!) and sweets a little.

I haven't taken my official 3 month picture yet - oops! - but I did take one at the pumpkin patch. I tried to find one that was close to a small baby size. Still have lots of growing to do before then!


  1. Yay!! So excited for you :) It will be great to know before Christmas, and a gender reveal party will be so fun! I'm bummed I won't find out until January, but at least that's something to look forward to after the holidays are over.

  2. Lauren, I didn't realize you were preggers until I saw on Twitter the other day! Looks like the nursery is going to have another explosion next spring/summer. So exciting!!! I bet Brielle will love being a big sis :)
