12 Weeks

According to the calendar, I'm somehow already 12 weeks {12w2d actually!} pregnant. This fact is continuously blowing my mind {as is the fact that I've barely blogged in weeks}. 

I've been so sick. Morning sickness for me, seems to mean nausea all the time, no matter what I do. This pregnancy, I've barely had cravings and I've had to force myself to eat anything. If I do crave something, a lot of the time it came right back out. So, I've been on zofran around the clock, which really helps, but doesn't seem to completely take away the misery. And, it didn't help that all three of us also came down with a head cold, that added its snotty-gross awfulness to the mix.

Thankfully, the last few days life has been better. I'm having more nausea free {although still on the meds} days. I've been able to skip a few doses of the medicine and I hope the good days will start out numbering the bad soon. And, there's very little hiding of the bump these days.


My energy level is slowly coming up too. On Friday, I took my last progesterone!! The progesterone is not easy to take, it made me so exhausted. It gave me super weird dreams that made it hard to sleep. And just generally made me feel gross. I'm very happy to be done with it. 

But, I'm most happy to report that Baby K 2.0 looks amazing and perfect. We had another ultrasound last Thursday, as many of you probably saw on Facebook. This was our 1st trimester genetic testing, and the baby looked great. The blood work was all perfectly normal and the sac on the back of the babies neck was measuring at a 1.2 {anything under 3 is normal}. The baby's heartbeat was 160, and he/she was measuring perfectly at 11 weeks 5 days. 

11w5d

The baby reminded me a lot of Henry. He/she was really wild and moving all over. Hands and legs were all over the place. It was stretching back and jumping up. It was amazing. I'm still in awe that there can be so much movement inside me and I have no idea. Morgan and I feel like we can finally get excited about this pregnancy.

Update for baby book purposes: 12 week OB appointment was great! We heard Baby K 2.0's heartbeat, it was 156 and everything looked great. 

Other than the baby news, life has been pretty calm. We've still been tot school and co-op, but just haven't had the energy to blog about it. I will hopefully get some updates out soon!

Hope your good days continue to outweigh the bad!
I can understand being able to finally enjoy the pregnancy and get excited. I'm glad my gender ultrasound was early at 18 weeks because it was after that I could really relax!
Glad your colds are over - that on top of being pregnant should not be allowed! :)
Boo for morning sickness! Yeay for a healthy baby!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
