Second Trimester here I come!

Well me and Baby Bean are officially 12 weeks along and I can’t believe I’m in my second trimester ALREADY! It seems like I just told everyone and everyone is catching on to the fact that I’m going to be a mommy.

So lets see.. What have I gone through….

I’m still hungry ALL the time. It never seems to go away. And whats even worse is if I wait to long to eat I won’t be able to actually eat much when I do sit down to eat. THAT is more frustrating then anything. I’m on a 2 hour roll it seems. On the money, every 2 hours, I’m hungry.

I was told that I wouldn’t be as tired and that I would get a break during my second trimester… I’m still waiting for that. I’m very tired and still feel moody and Blah really.

Lets see, what else. I’m starting to show!!! Haha, I was going to post a picture up, but can’t seem to find my cord to put pictures on my computer, so you’ll have to wait for that. But no worries, its just the “chubby” stuff, nothing super solid. lol

We get to find out what we are having in about a month and a half! Can you believe it!! Time flies with this baby. But we’re ready. We want to be as prepared as possible. Cause right now it is so hard to plan really anything at all. Not knowing and what not. I don’t know how people do it that wait for the SURPRISE! lol.. not me. I need to plan.

I’m finally starting to feel like I want to cook again. Before I couldn’t wait for all the prep time and cooking time. I just wanted something there and fast. I’m sure BJ is ready for me to start cooking again. Maybe this time off made him miss it?!?!… lol

In just a few short weeks we are planning to go on another Big trip to Ireland. We are so excited but I’m just hoping I come around so I can truly enjoy our time. A weekend or so ago I went to a concert in Ohio for my Dad’s birthday and felt like SUCH a party pooper! Everyone was worried about me being hungry and I couldn’t stand for very long during the concert either. Pray, pray, pray, that some of this fades away at least just for a moment while I’m in Europe.

I was hoping this summer would slow down but really it has just gotten more hectic. I’m learning to adjust and juggling everything. Hopefully I can really get some major things accomplished before the Baby comes. (like clean!)

Well, I’m off to venture another week. In a week and a half I have the fun dr’s appointment with all the blood work and test and stuff I’m not a huge fan of. But it’s all worth it.



It’s the start of a new life

After hearing the babies heart beat I am officially going to start to Blog about my mommy venture’s….

It’s been 5 weeks since I found out I was pregnant, and what a LONG 5 weeks it has been!!  I can feel the changes that my body has gone through. I could have sworn I gained 10 pounds over the last 5 weeks, but actually lost 1 pound.

I’ve been told that I’m lucky for not feeling over board sick and not really having to meet with the toliet on a regular basis. I’m pretty sure I had the flu for a few days because I had a fever and achey body, and couldn’t keep a thing down. Then after a few days, I was back to my normal self, eating every two hours and sleeping inbetween!!!

I have to admit, we were not planning this baby. Well, not yet anyways.  We are going on another big trip in August and we were determined to wait because I did not want to have to “hold back” so to speak, on this trip.

BUT, God had different plans. I don’t doubt this baby and God’s plan. I think the timing is more perfect then we could have expected. I’m ready to be a mom. And BJ, well, He’s more ready to be a dad that he might admit. (and he’ll be a great one at that!)

I love the typical questions that everyone wants to know about.

How are you feeling?

What do you want? A boy or a girl?

Was this planned?

How many kids do you want?

Are you going to let people rub your belly?

You have a glow already! And I can see that your showing already!! (are you sure I’m showing or am I just bloated?)

I love the questions. I guess because it’s my first every step is new and exciting. But to answer these quickly and officiantly, I have my answers down to a science.

I’m feeling great, just ALWAYS hungry (and thats frustrating).  I don’t care what we have as long as it gets here healthy and in my arms. No, this was not planned! not yet anyways. I want lots of kids. It’s always been that way. But my husband, well I will get lucky if I can get to 3! And do I really have a say in people rubbing my belly?? Haha. I’m am expecting everyone around me to rub my belly and I don’t care. Just wait till I’m showing and I don’t feel fat! And thank you for saying I’m glowing. Atleast your not telling me I look deathly pale and could really use some sun. Are you sure your feeling ok?? And no, I am not showing. So my Dr. tells me. I can’t suck in. My belly sticks out, and therefore I am bloated. 24/7… and I’m ok with that.

SO, there’s my last 5 weeks. I am going to blog so much more because of this baby and keeping as many people updated as possible.

Love, The Carpenters and Baby Bean…
