12 Weeks Round 4

Here we go again. We are blessed to be having one more little baby Helland. We will not be having any more after this one!  Trav and I always wanted a large family.  I had always wanted 4 children.  So here we are back at it one more time.

This time around things have been a little rougher.  I am trying to be thankful for all of the uncomfortableness and trying to remember everything. It is crazy to think this is my last time being pregnant. I have pretty much been pregnant or just post pregnant for the last 6 years of my life lol.  I am thankful I do not get nauseous or anything like that, but I do feel sick everyday.   For awhile anything I ate gave me a really bad stomach ache and then if I didn’t eat anything it would be worse.  Certain foods would really throw off my system and I would feel awful all day.  I am finally starting to come around a little bit:)  My energy is coming back and I am able to do more things with the girls and accomplish more things around the house and for work.  YAY!!!!!  Perfect time with Christmas right around the corner:)   This week you will be getting two post so I can catch up!!!!   I am still looking for the best place to take pictures.  This is the first time taking bump pictures in our new home!!!

How far along:  12 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  2 pounds

Maternity clothes: No, but my jean are getting tight.  I also have been wearing a lot of leggings. Yay for being pregnant in the winter time.

Stretch Marks: Just a couple left over from my last three pregnancies

Symptoms: I am still pretty tired out and need to eat right away in the morning. Thankfully this time I do not have itchy hands or a weird face rash, so that is super nice. My face is still having some pregnancy acne, but at least it is not bright right and bumpy.

Best Moment: Finally getting to tell everyone we are pregnant. It is such a long wait before you are able to tell anyone.

Miss Anything:  Energy and not getting sick from eating certain foods

Movement: Nothing yet

Food cravings:  Anything salty.  Nothing specific though.

Anything making you queasy or sick: If I don’t eat often enough and certain foods don’t sit well

Have you started to show yet? My stomach is growing. I think from the day I found out I was pregnant my stomach got instantly bloated and never went back down.

Labor Signs: zero

Belly button in or out: In

Gender: I have no idea.  It will be fun to see if I carry the same way, what the heart rate is, and all of other fun wise tales.  We will not be finding out again. BEST surprise ever.

Wedding ring on or off? Still on.

Happy or Moody most of the time: CRABBY.  Oh man my patience is short and I have been pretty crabby lately. I think I just need a little time for myself.

Baby’s Heart Rate: 175- that was at 11 weeks. My doctor couldn’t get me in at 12 weeks so I just went in early.

Looking forward to: To tell all of my friends and family that we are having another baby!  Christmas!!! It is such a magical time of year. We have so many fun weekends and activities planned. Hopefully I have enough energy to keep up.

This is how we announced our 4th pregnancy!  Santa is bringing the girls a late Christmas present in June.  God has blessed us with one more, here comes baby number 4!<3
