First Trimester

Baby Darley #2 at 14 Weeks

Well, my first trimester with baby Darley number 2 has come and gone. This pregnancy has been a little different. I'll go though and do a little overview like I did last pregnancy.

How we found out:
This time was a LOT different than the last pregnancy because we were actually trying to get pregnant. The first month we tried we got pregnant. I started taking tests a few days before I was supposed to start my cycle and found out I was pregnant. It was very exciting!

How I feel:
This trimester the morning sickness started at about 6 weeks, but it's definitely different this time. I feel nauseas a lot but I'm not throwing up like I was the last pregnancy. I've kind of figured out that as long as I keep something on my stomach I don't feel as bad. I have been super tired, especially at work. Other than that It hasn't been too bad.

Cravings:
Cravings are a lot like last pregnancy for me... I don't really have many. Just like last pregnancy it has been hard to decide on something I actually want to eat. I have been eating my chocolate doughnuts, Chance got me some toaster strudels that I've been tearing up, and I always love some Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches but I'm really wanting them right now.

Body:
This pregnancy I feel like a cow already!!! I have already started popping out, where last pregnancy I didn't start to show until like 16 weeks! I hope that doesn't mean that I will be HUGE by the end. I have gained about 5 lbs so far and I'm hoping to keep from gaining as much weight as I did in my last pregnancy. I have been exercising this time around a lot more so hopefully that will help!

Funny story from today:
Well my original due date was August 5th, but when I went in for my "13 week" appointment today, my doctor asked if I was POSITIVE about the first day of my last cycle. I told her that I was absolutely sure. So she decided to do another ultrasound today because when I went in for my first appointment they said I was measuring a week small. We went back for the ultrasound today and the tech measured twice and I was measuring exactly what I had told them about my cycle, so I'm actually 14 weeks and 2 days today. :) My new due date is July 29th!!! So one more week down!

Well, will be finding out what we are having in about a month and I will update again then.

Caycen Has An Announcement

Caycen is very excited to announce...



We are super excited about this new chapter. The due date is August 5th.

Caycen is so funny because he is in this stage where any time we as him a question he says "No" with a little shake of his head... so of course, every time we ask him if he wants a little brother or sister he says "No", then we ask him if he even knows what that means and luckily he says "No" again :) haha! Love that kid!!!!

Anyway, we are so blessed and can't thank the Lord enough for ALL of our blessings!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Amy, Chance, and Caycen
