Made in Italy

Yes, it's true...John and I are expecting and the baby was conceived in Italy. So, I guess the vacation was an absolute success now! John has been jokingly saying that he wants to get a "Made in Italy" tattoo on the baby's behind. I said that we can just get a onesy made with that symbol instead. I am 12 weeks along, so almost done with my first trimester. We have our second doctor's appointment next week, and we should hear the heartbeat, which I am really excited about.

Answers to frequently asked questions:

When are you due? April 30

Are you going to find out the sex? Nope...we're excited for that one last surprise!

Have you chosen any names yet? We've discussed a few, but we are keeping those a secret till the baby is here.

How are you feeling? EXHAUSTED! I swear that I NEVER knew that pregnancy this early could make you this tired. I nap almost every day.

Do you get morning sickness? No, evening sickness. I am fine in the morning, which is a relief since I am at work at 5:30am on most days. I eat great for breakfast and lunch, go for a swim after work, nap when I get home, and then I want nothing to do with dinner. Peanut butter and jelly has been my savior!

Are you showing yet? No, although I feel like a fat ass and my pants are tight on me. I went out to buy comfy yoga-like pants, which I have been living in. I also purchased a "Tummy Tube" which allows you to wear your regular pants without buttoning or zipping them. I haven't tried it out yet, but I will soon.

So, that's the current run-down on the pregnancy. I am sure that many more updates will follow!

Congrats Carla! How exciting!!! The exhaustion will go away soon. I hope the evening sickness goes soon too!

Go out and buy maternity jeans now... they are awesome. I wore mine nonstop throughout my pregnancy. The tummy tubes are also nice (until you outgrow them).

The sleepiness and sicknesses should go away soon. The second trimester is the best (aside from the fact that people don't know if your pregnant or just gaining weight). Enjoy your time and your body. Things get crazy the last couple of months.

I'm so excited you aren't going to fid out the sex and keeping the name a secret is a great idea, too.

Can't wait for the baby shower...
