A New Chapter : Mommyhood

I’ve been thinking a lot about this new chapter I am entering in life, and have been feeling like I need somewhere to share all of these thoughts.

It all started back in November when my hubby (Collin) and I decided it was time to try and start having a family. It happened much quicker than I thought it would, but exactly as I hoped it would. On December 11th, after a month of trying I took three pregnancy tests (just to be sure!), and all of them were positive! We couldn’t believe it!

I immediately emailed my doctor to set up our 1st appointment, and we were able to see baby & hear baby’s heartbeat for the first time on January 14th – it was 152 beats per minute.

Baby K’s 1st Ultrasound

I am now in my 19th week of pregnancy (already!), and it has really flown by! I feel blessed to have skipped over any feelings of morning sickness, and have for the most part been feeling great.

Baby Krawll is:

  • The size of a MANGO
  • 6 whole inches, crown to rump!
  • About 8.5 oz
  • Can hear mom’s voice
  • And is growing hair

I can’t believe we’re almost half way there!

Cravings:
pickles, APPLES, Easter candy/chocolate, clementines

Aversions:
Salad – although this is getting better – I can stand it in small doses.

The BEST thing about pregnancy this week:
Finally starting to feel baby move!

Feeling:
More tired, bigger, & excited to see our baby at our mid-pregnancy ultrasound soon!

What we’re buying:
With the help of our parents, we’ve been stocking up on cloth diapers (so far we’ve purchased Charlie Banana Pocket Diapers, Coquí Baby Hero Pocket Diapers, and Baby Trend Pocket Diapers), and we also found THE crib – we purchased this beautiful Kendall Crib and Catalina Dresser from Pottery Barn Kids. I am so excited to set it up, so our 2nd bedroom/office starts feeling more like baby’s room 🙂

Thanks for joining me on my mommyhood journey – I’m hoping this can be a place where I can look back at my pregnancy and remember this special time in my life. I hope it will also help me bond and feel more connected to baby by writing about him or her. I also hope this becomes a positive place where we can learn from one another and encourage one another in parenting and life in general.
