Fourth Pregnancy :: Month 3 :: Week 13+

Fourth Pregnancy :: Month 3 :: Week 13+

To say I’m having a hard time keeping up with this pregnancy is an understatement.  When I was in Atlanta, I decided not to worry about taking weekly photos and instead decided I’d take monthly pictures…but if I’m being honest, even the monthly photos are hard for me to keep up with. I’m close to Week 14 (yay for my 2nd trimester) and after our latest ultrasound, the due date I’ve been given is March 27th, 2016.

Anyone remember what March 27th is?

That would be the day Travis and I went on our first date in 2008.

And it would also be the day this happened in 2010.

Yep…I think it’s perfectly fitting that our 4th could arrive on our 6th anniversary. 🙂

Anyway, that’s kind of a fun fact.

Back to my pregnancy. If I’m being honest, the first 3 months sucked. I felt horrible. I felt exhausted. And I felt useless. As of the past couple days (as I mentioned in my announcement post), I’ve started to feel a bit better.  I am SO thankful that’s the case.

I hoping that in my posts moving forward, I’m able to keep saying how wonderful I feel (fingers crossed!).  For now, here’s the latest and greatest.  Week 13+…these pictures are terrible, but I’m not about to spend precious 3-kid-napping-time re-taking them.  Those of you with kids will understand. 🙂
