The First Trimester

First...the obligatory belly shot. This one was taken at the end of the 12th week, and I will try to be good about taking one every four weeks.

I can't believe my belly is already so big! I think my extremely short torso is to blame :).

I feel very fortunate that the first trimester of this pregnancy went so smoothly. Perhaps the best thing was that I had no real morning sickness to speak of...thank goodness! However, the main bump in the road was a bit of spotting here and there. I learned that this is actually very common...but this didn't stop me from worrying like crazy each time. The silver lining was that each time I went in to the doctor, we got to see our little peanut and hear its wonderful heartbeat.

Here are the earliest pics of Baby Shep...looking more like a blob than a baby :).

Six Weeks

Seven Weeks

I think it looks like a sea monkey in these.

Eight Weeks

I really wish we had a sonogram at the 12-week appointment because the ones I have seen actually look like babies. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until the 20-week appointment...which is also when we will find out if Baby Shep is a boy or girl. Any guesses?

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
