12 Weeks

I'm feeling okay. Tired and nauseated. The usual. Mornings are good, it's the afternoon/evenings where I'm wishing I could just curl up in bed. I don't crave anything but always keep crackers on hand because if I get hungry it makes me sicker. I'm hoping that the 2nd trimester brings more energy because Gary will be gone a lot more.
{Just a bit bigger than I was with Koen and a whole lot bigger than I was with Kai:) I'm assuming it's just a third baby type thing?}

I'm excited that in December, Gary and the boys will be able to go to my midwife appointment and the ultrasound.

I am thankful for this little one, whom I'm assuming is another little man for our household of wild wrestling. And seriously, as much as people assume a girl is all I want, I'm just hoping to get this baby to 38+ weeks and birth a healthy baby.

I'm not nervous about the Graves' Disease yet which will likely resurface when baby is 1+ month old. I don't know if it's because I just feel like it won't be as bad or I'll get it under control faster or I'm in denial.

And as a random side note, Kai and Koen have memory verses for church. I turn them into songs so they are super easy to remember. Then, for the rest of the month, Gary and I can't get these songs out of our heads:)

Have a good night.
Love, Louise


  1. super cute baby belly :)
    i think that knowing what Graves looks like, you'll be more prepared for it...to recognize the symptoms and know how to deal with it. hopefully it doesn't show up at all! :)

  2. yep, nice belly. the rest of you looks so small - lookin' good my friend! and knowing about Graves means you can ask for help sooner since you'll be prepared for some extra stuff after the baby comes. happy 12 weeks!!!

  3. Cute belly! I second cades and co... you will know earlier and be super proactive about the grave's and be able to be on top of it, sooner! so great. xoxo I have some books I just got back from my friend, if you are ready for reading... =)

  4. Hope you soon feel as good as you look!
