12 Weeks

Today marks the beginning of my 12th week! It's a milestone, and I'm very happy, because that means that hopefully I will get my energy back soon, and not feel so sick anymore. Last week was pretty rough for me, but I feel much better today.

I had my 12 week appointment today, and everything is A-OK. Even got to hear the heart beat for the first time! Grant was able to be there, too, so I was happy for that. He thought about videotaping the event as proof to myself that I actually am pregnant. Because about every other day or so, I tell him that I don't really think I'm pregnant, and that this is all just a dream, and I'll eventually wake up and be really disappointed that I'm not actually pregnant. Well, after hearing the heartbeat today, it's pretty hard for me to deny it anymore.

When I was in the exam room today, I was looking at a growth chart for both the mom and the baby. It's so hard to imagine that my baby, which is about the size of a lime right now, will get so "big" before he/she is actually born! What an incredible thing this all is!!


  1. The baby is about the size of a kiwi, and it's hidden, right, so it's a Kandid Kiwi Baby! :o)
    (you had to expect that one!)
    Congratulations on growing a healthy fruit!

  2. Congratulations! We are so happy for you! 12 weeks, that is pretty far along. I can't wait for the Prego Kiwi pictures! Hang in there, the second trimester has always gone well for me.
    I had similar feelings of disbelief that I was pregnant. It's a very amazing blessing. I hope you have better week, Love, Jazzy

  3. piece of advice - bring a blank video cassette with you to your 18 wk ultrasound, if you're lucky they'll let you record it. we did for ours and because we told them it was to show our family that lives far away, the sonographer included some neat stuff - typing in what the landmarks were. :)

  4. thanks jazzy! and embee, that's great advice. I'll definitely have to do that!

    It sounds like Grant and Dan could swap stories of "my wife kept telling me she was hallucinating the pregnancy." Even though I was going through morning sickness and other pregnancy symptoms, it took me a really long time to actually believe I was really and truly pregnant. It's just such a weird thing to think about. So you're not alone in your paranoia. Congrats on the heartbeat! That's such a great sound.

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one that keeps forgetting you're pregnant. I'll be reading your blog, and then all of a sudden realize, "Oh my goodness, Kelly is pregnant!" I can't wait until you start showing. That's the best!
