Thank you so much for all of the congratulations!
It's pretty neat how much you can care about a tiny little human you've never met. At the ultrasound a couple weeks ago, baby did some flips for us. I'm sure it will be awesome when I start feeling it move inside of me. Clint keeps calling it a boy, I keep calling it a girl, but we'll be thrilled with whatever we get and cannot wait to find out in a few weeks. We like to laugh at my growing belly (I can push it out pretty far at night) and constantly talk about names. Everything is so new the first time around so we're soaking that up.
For the first trimester I was pretty out of it. Every evening I would get really sick, so a lot of time during those 12 weeks was spent in bed or standing over the toilet. A crazy amount of carbs were consumed and a few too many pounds put on right away. It's true; growing a human is hard work.
All this to say I'm so grateful to be feeling (mostly) better now and cannot wait to get back in the swing of things.
