No, not 13 National Championships (which we do have by the way. Ahem. Roll Tide.), but today I start my 13th week of pregnancy.
Surprise! Mr. and Mrs. Smith are getting ready to welcome Baby Smith into our little family. Today begins my 2nd Trimester, and I honestly cannot believe the 1st one went by so fast.
Some tidbits for you readers:
1. I'm an anti-pee stick picture person, so rest assured you will not be seeing any pictures of said pee stick pregnancy tests on this blog. But to each their own, and if you're proud to show off that pee stick picture, then by all means, show away.
2. We found out on Wednesday, September 1st that the miracle of life was growing away. Yes, it's been unbelievably hard not to write about it on here, but we wanted to wait until the 1st trimester was over. (And because we had been told - countless times, really - about the possibility of miscarriage in the 1st trimester. Which here's a side note - that's really, really insensitive to a newly preggers mommy who is trying to deal with fluctuating emotions and the overall excitement.) It is pretty amazing what people will start telling you when they find out you're pregnant. And by amazing I mean shocking. The truth comes out once you're initiated into the Pregnancy Club.
3. No, we were not actively trying or planning. By that I mean we were not taking temperatures, tracking anything on a calendar, etc. We have been praying about it for quite some time, and left if up to the Big Guy on when He would like to entrust us with a little one. We just didn't know it would be quite so soon.
1. Baby Smith is the size of a lime.
