11w 5d

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas! Now it's time to ring in the New Year! The holiday months go by so quickly that it's hard to soak it all in at times. I'm really sad that it's already time to take down the tree and the decorations. Even though we bought a new tree for next year, it's just sad that it all has come to a end.
I'm not doing new year resolutions this time. I feel like every time I list the changes I want to make aloud they never happen. SO I'm keeping them quiet this year. Plus I only have three personal things I want to see happen in 2015 because everything is centered around our bundle of joy!
Next weekend the plan is to get our registry's done. I'm not really sure why we are doing a registry other then it will keep us focused on what we have purchased and still need to purchase. I'm not really counting on outside help to get this stuff. Since my husband is also dead set on not finding out gender - creating a neutral nursery and purchasing neutral clothing has been a beast. I'm leaning more towards boy stuff because it's easier to put a girl in blue then a boy in pink - not that I personally care. It's also been really hard explaining to people that I'm honoring my husbands wishes and not finding out gender. In other words I'm not going to cheat and ask my Dr when he's not around. I'll have to wait and be surprised just like he wants to be.

So far everything with the pregnancy has gone great!
We have already have our first OB appointment.
We got the baby registered and received a TON of information packets from the hospital. SO much information to go through and the support options are amazing!!
We are currently 11w & 5d.
I swear I can feel the baby moving around from time to time.
I'm starting to get some of my energy back & get more things accomplished.
We started walking around our neighborhood in the evenings & I'm always shocked on how out of breath I get.
I'm excited that we are almost done with the first trimester!!
I'm also taking advantage of 'nap' time because I know that will end after the baby is born.
I also believe that you can start to see a baby bump so that's exciting. I'm sure it will be a while before I start to look pregnant instead of overweight.. but that's okay.

Everything seems to be moving fast & it's hard to slow it down and just soak it in. We are super excited and ready to start this new journey. With open arms we welcome 2015!!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!!
