Baby #3: 14 weeks

We are going to do family/maternity photos again in July,
but this one is from a big family photo shoot we did in Ojai a couple weeks ago.

How far along.... 14 weeks, 3 days!

How am I feeling....  The nausea is beginning to subside some. My cravings/aversions are still very strong so I listen to my body ;) I definitely noticed a big improvement coming into my second trimester. However, this past weekend must have been a fluke. I woke up with an awful headache on Saturday morning, and despite eating right away, threw up all day until dinner. I also woke up Sunday feeling pretty bad, but managed to keep my food down. Phew. Otherwise I feel good.

How is baby doing.... Wonderful! We had our NT scan two weeks ago and everything looked great. My blood work came back normal as well. That was a huge relief as I have had this weird feeling that something was wrong. After talking to my Mom, we realized we have both been feeling that way because this miracle baby seems too good to be true. And I almost forgot... I have been feeling baby moving!!!! It's so early, but I really know what the feeling is and I have a posterior placenta, so I've been feeling movement since 12 weeks. So crazy.

Milestones, etc....
 We are having fun making our list of names. It's crazy to think we need to have at least two picked out, one for a boy and one for a girl! We are officially in the second trimester now and I am beginning to believe I am pregnant. This third time is the most surreal yet. I find myself imagining a third every time we are doing things with the kids, wondering "what will this be like with one more..." I found an adorable Etsy shop {I love Etsy!} that makes bonnets for boys and girls and bought two to bring to the hospital.


  1. love the picture of you and belly! and the bonnets are super cute as well.

  2. You're adorable and the bonnets are so cute! I can't wait to see if this one's a boy or a girl!
