3 months!!

I was 3 months on Christmas Day! Finished my first tri-mester!

I've been feeling pretty good. Just experiencing some headaches and tiredness.

We had a very nice Christmas spent with family. We had our traditional Italian Christmas food- Lasagna, gnocchi, Italian sausage and bread. It was good!

Hope you had a wonderful day celebrating Christ's birth!

11 Weeks and A Case of the Flu

Today I am 11 weeks.. almost done with my first tri-mester!

On Friday night I started feeling sick.. I thought it was just "morning" sickness, but around midnight I started throwing up and didn't stop until 5:30 am. I caught a 24 hour flu bug. Not sure how, but I'm so glad it's over with now!

I can't believe Christmas is one week from today! I will be done with my first tri-mester next week! This week is busy for me. My cousin Alyssa is returning from Spain tomorrow, we are doing our annual cookie baking on Wednesday, Thursday we are celebrating Christmas with my in-laws, Christmas Eve will be spent with my family, and on Christmas day we are hosting the big event.

A Sale!

I made another Etsy sale!

It was a knit coffee cozy. Sales are always exciting ;)

On a side note, my cousin Alyssa has been in Spain for 3 months! She is like a sister to me. I am so excited for her return this coming Monday! Every year, our family does a cookie baking day around Christmas-time. Alyssa is going to join us..

Alyssa and I at the Kris Kindle mart in downtown Chicago.

Week by Week

Yesterday marked the start of 10 weeks in my pregnancy! I thought I would start at that point and continue to take a picture each week to see how much I change. So here is the picture for 10 weeks-

I think I'm starting to coming out the morning sickness stage.. Just feeling tired mainly and for some odd reason I sneeze a lot?

Rock A Bye Baby

The big news around here lately- I am expecting! I found out last month.

This was not planned (at least not by us).. I took it hard the day I found out... I just got married this past April and I was wanting to wait a couple of years. BUT- God had other plans for me. I am so glad He is in control. He knows what He is doing and I know that this baby will be a blessing. I am doing so much better emotionally. It's not that I didn't want children, it is just that having a child is one of my worst fears.. The whole process- being pregnant, labor and pain, and the responsibility for another life. BUT-God is my strength and my rock. He will help me through all of this.

Today was my first Dr.'s appointment. I heard the heartbeat! It was amazing :)
