This morning I woke up...

Seriously woke up with a huge belly.
Even had a couple comments about it from people today.
My last pair of jeans now do not fit.  Sweats it will be.

Today was my first day out of the house in a few days.
I've been really sick since Sunday morning but I'm on the mend...I hope.
Don't worry I'm not contagious...just pregnant.
I should be back to normal tomorrow...I hope. I go in sick spurts-it's weird.

If all goes as my other 4 pregnancies, I should only have 3 more weeks of nausea.
I realized today that I am 1/3 of the way done with this pregnancy which I'm thrilled about.
Don't like being pregnant-just like the babies that come because of it.

~Last night 2 noteworthy things happened that I must mention. 
The first was terrible. I cramped badly for an hour & no matter what I did it wouldn't go away.
Finally it did. I realized how much I really do want & am excited about this baby! (I have to remember that feeling when I feel overwhelmed at the thought of having two babies-or am up in the night dealing w/ nausea & a crying, gassy 18 month old at the exact same time. Not fun.)

The second thing was-I felt my baby move in the middle of the night! 
Is that even possible at 13 weeks?
It was a quick little butterfly motion but I felt it.
It woke me up & I couldn't believe it. It was a tender mercy after a long couple of days!

Other exciting news is that baby Ivan will be here soon. 
My sister in law's little boy is scheduled to make his appearance into this world this week. 
We can't wait to meet him & couldn't be more thrilled for their family!

**{I have so many posts to catch up on that I will start tomorrow-maybe. The problem is that I post at night. Lately though I'll get the kids to bed, shower & then lay down to watch t.v. with tim...but I fall right to sleep with exhaustion.}

Have I told you how excited I am for you yet? I'm SO excited. You make beautiful babies, I'm excited to see your next one! I'm so sorry you're dealing with Nausea still, hopefully will go away soon!

Good luck with everything, maybe we'll see you at Thanksgiving in AZ?

Hang in there! I know I have never seen you fat so I don't have much sympathy for you!! I can't believe you felt your baby so early. Your a lucky girl... it takes me till 16 weeks to feel anything. I must not be in sync with this body... lol! Can't wait to find out what your having!! Let me know if I can do anything for you! xoxo

YOu are NEVER fat even when you are at the end..you look great! I can't believe you are 1/3 the way done. I just found out last week! You are a good secret keeper. Silly girl. I hope that your sickness is over soon and that you will have a great, easy pregnancy. Congrats again.

Audra, I'm soo excited for you. This post makes me want to get pregnant so badly, but I'm just soo happy to be sleeping. Pearcey was sleeping through the night at about a month, but still, i'm just not good with not sleeping. ugh. I'm torn. Pray for me...you're inspired!
