Sixteen Weeks

Sixteen weeks.

That's four months.

Thats a little less than half way there.

We hit sixteen weeks over the weekend and had an appointment with our doctor yesterday.  Happily I can report that Baby C is growing bigger and stronger and the doctor said all was going well! We got an cardiac sonogram today to check on the babies heart, so while we didn't get to see how big the baby is, we got to see its heart - and everything looks good!

I'm feeling better too - it seems I have cleared the first trimester blues. I'm no longer nauseous and I have my energy back (I could still use some more though, so if you have any to spare send it my way!)

The next time we will get to see Baby C we will get to find out if it's a boy or a girl! We will be going back for our 20 week scan in a month or so...depending on the Christmas and New Years schedule at the doctors office. What a perfect Christmas gift and way to start the New Year!

Let's talk food...pregnancy food

The number one question I get asked when I tell people that I am pregnant is "How have you been feeling??" - and for good reason. Most people associate the first trimester with sickness, crazy food cravings, lack of energy and other wacky things your body is going through. The first twelve weeks or so can be a roller coaster (to say the least). I was very fortunate not to be sick during my first trimester, but I did have a few weeks that were plagued with nausea.

And being nauseous makes it very hard to eat.  Which I had to do every two hours (almost on the button) or else I felt even more nauseous.

Are you feeling a little green with all this talk of nausea??

Sorry, I'll stop soon.

So, how did I get through it and what have I been eating during the last ten weeks? (I didn't start feeling sick until around week six. But once it started it was in full effect)

Hi there!

You must have read my latest post over at The Traveling Cupcake and heard my exciting news - I'm expecting!

This is my space for all things baby. I didnt want to turn my original travel/baking blog into a baby blog - as much as I am excited about becoming a mom thats not why I started The Traveling Cupcake. So this is my own space for everything that I am excited to share with you! I am a first time mom and there I want to write about - how I'm feeling, what I'm thinking, what I'm finding that is AWESOME for babies - and everything in between!

I'm new at this - so if you have any suggestions or comments I would LOVE to hear them! Feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email at trvlngcupcake @ gmail . com
