The Details!

Hey! It's been forever, I'm a terrible blogger, I know! Well us Neu's have been busy busy busy! In August the new hospital tower opened at work and it completely consumed my life for the next two months! I was exhausted/stressed out pretty much 24/7 through September. In October we took an amazing vacation to Mexico to celebrate our belated 2nd anniversary. We spent the week acting like honeymooners and ignoring our IPhones and work email. It was amazing and after the previous 2 months I had, I needed the relaxation more than I ever thought possible!


That vacation also ended up being another very special event in our life! We decided we were ready to add a baby to our family and this trip was the kickoff for us to start trying - a conceptionmoon! Ha! Just like everything else in my life I planned and planned and decided it would take at least 3 months for us to get preggers. Well God had different plans, because about a week after we got back from Mexico I found out we didn't need to try anymore! We couldn't have been more excited, scared, nervous, joyful, and thankful all at once!

I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow and our "Neu"est lil nugget is due on June 28th! One week after our 3rd anniversary! We can't wait!


7 Weeks
 
13 Weeks - The little dot above the babies face is the the baby doing a thumb's up!

I really wanted to do the weekly postings starting early on, but the lil nugget had different ideas about that! The first trimester was extremly difficult to say the least! At about 5 weeks I started getting nauseous and it continued to get worse by the day. By week 6, I couldn't keep anything down and I could barely function at work. I was waking up around 3:00 am every day and vomiting nonstop for the rest of the morning, the rest of the day I spent trying not to throw up, and then by dinner time I was throwing up again... I was miserable. My doctor diagnosed me with Hyperemesis gravidarum, which is basically severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. I ended up in ER and being admitted into the hospital for dehydration and on constant medication to keep me from throwing up.

13 week bump!

At about 16 or 17 weeks I finally started feeling better! I'm finally able to eat, drink, and be awake past 7:00 pm! I'm so thankful that I can finally start enjoying my pregnancy! Even more so because we get to find out if Lil Neu is a boy or a girl on Friday! We are just praying for a healthy baby and are so excited to see him or her and hear the most amazing sound in the world again, the heart beat!

18 week post coming soon!

Loves!

Congrats!!! You look amazing. So glad that yucky first trimester is behind me, sounds like you really had it rough. Mine wasn't that bad but still miserable! Friday will be SUCH an exciting day...finding out the sex was one of the most exciting and surreal days of my life! Hope you have time to shop a little for whatever he/she is afterward! SO FUN! Enjoy! Let me know if you need any advice...I've got lots of new mommy advice to hand down! :)
