If you didn't get the proof on Facebook... WE'RE PREGNANT!
I was convinced to hold off on telling anyone until.. who knows when. But once family members started randomly asking me if I was pregnant I found it pointless to try and keep it quiet.

I had a hunch I was pregnant during our last trip to California. The day we got home I took 2 pregnancy tests and both showed positive! I'm more calm about this pregnancy. Obviously because I had a feeling that something wasn't right last time. I was able to hold the news in an entire month before sharing it with the world.

I know this pregnancy is 100% more normal from the last one. My emotions are different. My body is different. Everything just feels different. Not to mention I actually had a serious case of morning sickness last week. It was so bad I had to go to the hospital for an IV! Two days after my IV was my 8 week appointment.  I was so nice to finally be able to hear a little heart beat. Ian thought it sounded like a humming bird :)
Our little peanut (since that's about it's size right now) had a heart beat of 160 bmp. The doctor said that so far it sounds very healthy. A fast heartbeat is a good sign. When he measured peanut it was actually VERY tiny. Only 1.12 cm which measured me out to only being 7 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Not as far along as I thought.. which was a bummer.
Little peanut will makes it's debut around March 29th! Who knows.. I might have a baby for my birthday.
There's our little peanut as tiny as can be. They were able to do the ultra sound on my belly. Which was nice. Usually when you're this far along it's hard to capture the heartbeat through the belly.
This is peanut's heart beat. :)

I've looked at my measurements from the last pregnancy and here's what they were...
weight: 131
bust: 34'
waist: 26'
belly: 32'
hips/bum: 36'

I should have measured myself again since I lost more weight. I got down to 128 and I'm sure the rest of the measurements would have been a touch different.  But anywho.. since THOSE measurements I've already gained 4 lbs. and inch around my bust, 3 inches around my waist, an inch around my belly, and my hips are the same. Totally nuts. I could tell my waist was filling out on Sunday. I felt like I had more of a manish figure. My 12 week appointment is the 9th of next month. Can't wait to see how different the baby looks!

Can't wait to meet you peanut! Stop making mommy sick.
It's not very enjoyable.


  1. Congrats Wendy! I'm so happy for you guys! I hope that peanut keeps making you sick (at least for a little while, cause thats a good sign). Its good to hear that you're feeling a lot better about this one. Looking forward to meeting it too!
