So here's the deal, my snippet on the election has been censored and deleted so many times, I'm not even going to touch my reaction. My thoughts are not gathered and my heart is not prepared.

So onto the baby front . . . remember that thickening I mentioned, it's in full force.

Baby bless is now 3.2 to 3.5 inches and is still hovering around the ounce weight! For visual that's about the size of a lemon. I don't have much by way of excuse for my hormones now, as baby bless is now nourished by the placenta, thankfully cutting back on my excess of hormones.

Apparently, I could be in for some darkening of my freckles, oh joy {for the record, I do love my freckles, but due to skin cancer concerns always freak out about any changes}. As for other discomforts, I have hair growing on my boobs, it's not normal and it's where it shouldn't be. Yeah, not exiting, have you ever tried to shave your boobs? You shouldn't. Additionally, for the first time in my life, I'm dealing with constipation, for what it's worth, I don't recommend it.

Everyone at work now knows. It's fun and such a relief, but I really did enjoy the secret. The coworker I sit next to had the best reaction, she thought Tony was joking, as he said "Leah's pregnant." Just like two of our co-workers have to announce their wive's pregnancies. Laura laughed about it and I saw the moment her face dropped as she realized 15 seconds behind the rest of the room that we weren't joking. It was priceless.

Oh and for those of you who didn't check back, I did post the u/s pics.

You are too freaking adorable Leah! And thanks for sharing some of the not so glamorous parts of pregnancy, I needed that to help quell my baby fever! :)

mrs.leah.maria said...

cagequeen - I completely agree! So I added some info, that I'm anal about my freckles and any changes cause me concern!

Sarah and Kari - I need to keep it real, right?

Thank you for being so honest about pregnancy! It's refreshing.

I definitley see the thickening now, I love these week by week pictures :)

Chelsie said...

you are too freaking adorable and your comments about how the pregnancy is changing your body are hilarious!

Though I would love to hear your reaction on the election, I understand why you may not want to post it.

Lindsey said...

OH. MY. GOSH. The u/s pictures are AH-MAZING!!!!!!

Kristal said...

Awww, you're starting to get an itty bitty bump! Love it!

And girl, I seriously hope you are that honest on the blog about every pregnancy detail. I wanna know it all!

Kristal said...

OK, I just looked at the u/s pics and had to re-respond. Holy cow Leah!! Those pics are freaking amazing! I can't believe how much he looks like a baby, even though you are only 13 1/2 weeks along in the pics. That is so crazy. What a fan-freaking-tastic experience!!!!!

Jenn said...

It must be a huge relief for your office to know...I can't imagine hiding it.

And for the record...I'd still kill for my belly to lok like yours!

Andrea said...

Love the updates!

AJ said...

I'm with Jenn. I wish my 14w belly looked like that. But we've talked about this. And I'm fine with it. I love the reactions :)

abby said...

I also thank you for your honesty about pregnancy - it helps subdue my baby fever a bit as well. Mike, on the other hand, would not appreciate these efforts :)

Heidi said...

Wait, what? Freckles get darker when you're pregnant. OMG, I might actually look tan!!!

AmberDenae said...

You're adorable and your freckles are beautiful!! Ugh, sorry about the not so fun stuff you're dealing with =/

I understand what you mean about you not being able to write about the election. I, too, wrote and rewrote my post various times. I know that ti si vital to pray and respect our leaders and I do intend to do so, but I do not intend to agree.

It's a crazy thing.

God is in control, that gives me comfort. :)

Julia said...

Hairy boobs? Yet another gem of information that I would've missed if I didn't read your blog. I've already learned so much:)

Leslie G said...

Oh, my dear... just wait for hemeroids. Those are delightful! =(

Joi said...

Lovin' your little baby bump!

Sarah Danielle said...

I love seeing your updates!! Keep them coming! :)

So funny about your co-workers!!

Rachel said...

I want to know WHY you're not getting bigger? ;-)

Megan said...

Leah Leah Leah... you shaved your boobs?! Or did I read that wrong?! Regardless - I had to laugh at that one! My tummy is ultra-hairy but I'm not going anywhere NEAR that thing with a razor! Have a great weekend! You're adorable!

Bluebird said...

I love your honesty! It's so refreshing and makes me less freaked out to think and talk about babies with Jared.

Kelsey said...

Okay, don't feel bad! I ALSO experienced the hairy boob phenomenon and am happy to report that it seems to have passed at this point. YAY!

Seriously, some crazy stuff happens when you're making a baby!

Meredith said...

Is it crazy that my baby fever did not subside even the slightest bit after reading this post?!

You look FABULOUS!
