14 weeks and finished with my First Trimester

December 22, 2010 and I about 20 more minutes until my Christmas break begins until January 3rd...I CANNOT WAIT!!!

I am really excited because I am officially 14 weeks today and into my second trimester. WOW is all I can say. Things have been going good other than the fact that all I want to wear is comfy, stretch pants and leggins-but I dont' care! They are comfy and so nice!!! Thank goodness leggins came back in style. I have to get over to Macy's over my break and buy some maternity clothes. My tops fit good still, but pants not so well. Hopefully I can find some cute items at Macy's!

I am back to my regular eating schedule and things don't repulse me as much. What a relief--for a while it was touch-and-go. Thank goodness!

Maternity clothes? Maternity pants=yes!!

Am supposed to feel like this?

So in the past week I have been feeling much better than about 3 weeks ago. I am 11 weeks and almost finished with my first trimester. Three weeks ago I was feeling so sick-beyond tired, body aches, boobs hurting, nauseous feeling and just wiped out. I didn't feel human and not feeling like yourself is the worst feeling. Then one day about a week and half ago, I woke up and didn't have the sick feeling to my stomach, my food issues were gone ( I was having trouble smelling and eating certain foods), and I had more energy! Thank goodness! My second doctor appointment is December 7th and I can't wait to go and see what they say!

Looking forward to being off work December 24-January 2nd! It will be a nice vacation from work and hopefully the husband and I can get some work done around the house.

House Projects to complete:
  • Paint the Office and decorate with new comforter and fun paintings!
  • Paint the Guest bedroom which will be the baby's room
  • Paint the basement and hopefully get new carpet (it's our dog's favorite place to pee) eww!
  • Register for the baby
  • Buy the crib and start setting up the baby's room
