Baby #4 – 12 Weeks


It’s true! We are expecting Baby #4 and we couldn’t be more ecstatic! We are officially moved and getting settled into our new home in East TN, we’ve been here for a month now but we aren’t quite done unpacking and getting everything the way we want it yet. That’s obviously because of this sweet bean growing in my belly, he/she is making feel pretty sick, so things are slow going! I’m hoping to post some more in the coming weeks as I find time, but for now, here is the first baby update! I didn’t feel well enough to go all out for my first belly update photo, so you get a bathroom selfie this week! (1)


How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: I haven’t officially weighed myself before after finding out we were expecting, and honestly I probably won’t keep track this time. We ate out a LOT our first two weeks here so I imagine I gained some! 

Maternity clothes? Ugh. Yes. Already. Regular jeans are far too uncomfortable, thank goodness for LuLaRoe! I’ve worn a few pairs of maternity pants, but my LLR leggings are by far the comfiest! I went ahead and pulled my maternity tops as well, but I’m sticking to LLR and regular tees for the most part right now.

Stretch marks? Same old ones I’ve had since Boogie!

Sleep: I sleep as well as I can. Bird is transitioning from our bed to her bed but usually ends up back with us in the wee hours of the morning. She’s getting there, but until she’s permanently in her bed I probably won’t get a full nights rest with her tossing and turning!

Best moment this week: I got to see this little Bean jumping and spinning around at my prenatal appointment last week. It didn’t start out well as our insurance is not cooperating (so nice right?) and I had to pay out of pocket for the appointment! But thankfully the midwife was incredibly kind and asked if I’d like a chance to see him/her to lift my spirits. No pictures as it was an ancient machine that they don’t use “officially”, but just seeing him/her was amazing.

Movement: None yet, it’s way too early for that…

Food cravings: Icee’s, graham crackers and frozen fruit. 

Gender: Too early to tell!

Labor signs: None.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On and super loose! Yikes!

What I miss: Not feeling like a lazy bum… laying down is the ONLY thing that relieves my nausea right now.

What am I looking forward too: Holding a brand new baby, breathing in that sweet scent… this will be our last so you better believe I’ll be savoring every moment!

Weekly Wisdom: Let go and let God.

Milestones: Baby is the size of a lime!
