Watch me grow! Weeks 6, 8, and 14

Here are my first trimester bump pictures!  My goal was to take one every week, but as you can see, there is a big lag from 8-14 weeks.  Let's just say, I wasn't feeling or looking my best during that time and taking a picture was the last thing I wanted to do.  My belly also didn't really grow much until this last week, at week 14.  

Andrez and I laughed looking at the three of these pictures because I was feeling great and so optimistic at week 6.  I thought that pregnancy wasn't so bad and didn't know what anyone meant by morning sickness or feeling awful.  Then it hit, slowly at first and in waves, and by weeks 7 & 8, I was miserable.  Week 8's picture is a forced smile and was probably taken right before or right after throwing up for the second or third time that morning.  That's why we laughed because I was feeling so awful but wanted to get my picture in.  Obviously, I stopped caring about the pictures, journaling, and pretty much everything except for laying on the couch and sleeping for the next 6+ weeks.

At week 14, which was last Thursday, I felt much better and now the picture taking will commence each week until I'm holding our sweet little baby!  Now that the misery is slowly going away, I am really enjoying my growing baby and belly and can't wait to share this journey with you all!
