Baby baby baby



First of all, thank you all so so so much for the sweet comments you've made!!! As the days go on, we both get more and more excited to have a BABY! It's crazy to think that we are going to have our own kids and our own little family, like it's one of those things I was like "yeah I'll have a husband and kids one day" and then BAM husband and now BAM a kid and more to come! It's just crazy how it's like NOW that those things I used to say are here!! Crazy good. 

The first trimester I was mostly nauseous all day long and super hungry (like famished hungry all the time) starting around 7 weeks. Like honestly I never thought I would dislike eating haha I can stuff myself full and then 10 minutes later feel like I haven't eaten in days. I also don't want anything, like nothing sounds good and when something pops into my head it makes me nauseous. Yeah that sounds like a psycho person but that is my life as far as food goes. And I have to eat something right before bed (usually an apple or something easy) or else I wake up at 5am and I HAVE to get up to eat because it hurts how hungry I am!! I also wake up like 5 times a night to pee haha so there's that. Jason wakes up every time ( he says) so I guess he can suffer with me :) 

Just a little disclaimer, in no way am I trying to complain AT ALL about being pregnant! I am super grateful we could even get pregnant let alone only in a few months. I have friends who I love so much that suffer with fertility issues and it has made me never want to ever complain or be "mad" that I'm pregnant, it's a gift to be able to carry a baby and I really am so glad God blessed us with one. I just want to document all these things happening because they are all new and weird to me. Plus being sick just means there's someone growing in there so make me sick all you want, baby. I'll just ground you when you're older ;) (kidding xo)

Obviously I'm more tired than usual and kind of unmotivated which is a really bad trait to have when you work for yourself at your house. At about 12/13 weeks (aka now) I wake up every morning, eat breakfast, sit and be sick, throw it up, and then feel nauseous. Not sure how long this will go on but I basically just try to pick something light for breakfast because I know it won't stay down. After I throw up, I can eat all I want and be good! So it's cool guys. I heard if you're sick sick then it's a girl so I guess that's a wives tale I don't mind believing :) Overall I feel like it's a girl just as much as I feel it's a boy, but a LITTLE more girl. Jason says boy all the way haha he even calls baby He. We find out gender around 20 weeks so we have a few more weeks to keep guessing! Sorry if this was the most boring blog post you've ever read but if you read the entire thing, thank you!! I've never had a baby before so I want to document everything!!

  1. I know a lot of people start feeling much better around 14 weeks so hopefully you'll be one of those! Either way, you are going to make such a cute little pregnant lady as baby grows! Please tell me that you are going to do maternity fashion posts!

  7. So happy for you! I started feeling sick 6 weeks on the dot with both boys. My first went to 14 weeks and my second went to 17 weeks! And I was very very much like you, sick in the morning, threw up, and then fine and ate anything and everything all day long! But the thought of certain stuff made my stomach turn a lot of time. I have more food aversions than cravings! And according to the old wives tales, my 2nd son should have been a girl if we were going by those! HA! But it is still so much fun to try to guess based on those! Cant wait to read more and see what you're having! Hopefully the sickness clears up in the next couple days!

  9. "I've never had a baby before" lol ARE YOU SURE CANDACE! Do not even apologize for anything you do, this is probably THE most important thing you will ever blog about so write down any little thing you want to remember. That's my motto at least. And I promise it will never bore me and I will read every single word lol. Also, I "liked" this photo on Jasons instagram LIKE A CREEP! I was just so happy.

I want to remember all this stuff and be able to look back and maybe this baby will read it one day, too maybe?! I saw that you liked it! I was like "JASON THAT'S MY BLOG FRIEND!!!!" haha I was so excited :)

  10. You sound like me.. I stopped throwing up at 17 weeks so you're getting there =) I would always tell myself the same thing, that being sick is a good sign. I literally would think that while staring into the toilet. As far as working from home while pregnant.. yea, that was pretty much impossible during the first tri!

    1. Yay! Only 2 weeks left till I'm 17 weeks and I am already starting to feel better than I was! haha and seriously, when I throw up I'm like "it will be over in 1 second and it's good I'm sick cause that must mean baby is growing in there or something"

  20. Totally not the most boring post and that comes from a baby-less girl :)! As soon as I found out you were pregnant, I don't know what it was telling me you were having a girl, but now hearing how sick and nauseous you've been, I'm convinced :)!!

  25. So, I'm thinking about getting this dress on shein and I saw ur review and that you ordered a medium. I'm having the hardest time deciding whether I should get small or medium. Can you tell me what size you normally wear? I'm usually a size o (25) and xs, but wondering if I should get a medium instead of a small, so that its flowy. Love the way it looks on you & I'm hoping for a similar fit. :) thanks!

    1. I'm about 5'3" and I wear a 0 (24) usually so you should be good getting a medium, too!! It's perfect and you will love it! Thank you!!
