11 weeks!!

Woohoo we are 11 weeks today!! Like I say every week, this is flying by! Morning sickness decided to make an appearance again this week--just when I was sure that I was finally passed it. I feel like I have been sick so long that it is just a way of life. I cannot wait until I am able to get up, take a shower, and get dressed all before downing a bland breakfast and my B6 pill. Andrew is probably looking forward to this as well--I think he is getting sick of his sink being thrown up in whenever I can't get to the toilet in time. Other than being sick most of the time, everything else is going great. I have had a lot more energy and have been a lot more productive (ie I actually get up off of the couch). Can you see anything in my belly picture this week? I think I can and Andrew can, but to everyone else it probably just looks like I've had a few too many cupcakes. I am really hoping I have a bump by vacation so I don't feel fat the whole time.

This week Andrew and I came across a collection of baby gear that we love! We feel like it doesn't look super baby. We aren't into baby-looking gear (Pooh will not be in our house!). While we love the bassinet, I think we are going to opt for a pack n play instead because it makes more sense to spend money on something we can use for a year or more as opposed to only 3 months. Right now, Amazon has this whole collection on sale, but I think we will hold off for now. We probably won't start buying things until after our vacation at least.
