Are we out of the Woods?

Ya’ll know I’m a HUGE Taylor Swift fan – I’ve found myself singing one of my favorite songs off the 1989 album: Are we out of the woods?

I’m entering day 5 of a MIRACULOUS recovery. I hit exactly 12 weeks pregnant last Friday morning, I opened my eyes and sarcastically thought – wheres my 2nd trimester pregnancy glow?

The night before, I had spent most of the evening hanging my head over the toilet, having to pause our show several times to go and throw up. Thursday was awful, I had a nagging right upper quadrant pain through to my back, was so incredibly nauseated and laid under the covers all day. I thought maybe I was having a low key gall bladder attack.

But Friday morning, I woke up and like a veil had been lifted, I feel GREAT. I’ve only thrown up once, I have gone hours without eating and NO NAUSEA! My food aversions are almost completely gone! My nose isn’t so overwhelmingly sensitive! If I didn’t hear the baby’s heart beat at my first OB appointment on Monday, I would question if I was still pregnant!

But again, I keep asking myself – am I out of the woods? Is this just some 5 day miracle? 6 weeks of overwhelming nausea just totally over? Seems too good to be true!

We are 99% sure we have our boy name picked out – it’s been a runner up for both of the boys but now we are pretty sure this is the one for baby #3 if it’s a boy. We won’t find out the gender until the week of my birthday in May.

I had my first OB appointment on Monday, Gannon came with me and he was SO GOOD! He had an appointment too and he sat so nicely to get his ears checked and to get weighed on the scale, I just remember how many times I had to force him to be examined and hold him down, now he’s such a big boy! Just in time to start ALL OVER again with another baby. I was going to get him ice cream for being so good but we was asleep before we even got out of town.

That’s the update I have for today, I don’t even have any pictures to add to this post because I honestly haven’t taken many lately! Just me, popping in to give a quick update! Thanks for reading!

    Sure hope your first trimester woes are behind you and you can enjoy the joys of the second trimester!! I did love being pregnant, despite the morning sickness (that lasted all day too). I’m looking forward to finding out what you are going to be having!!
